Hello all! I finally decided to make an account on here after lurking this site for a few months and I recently finished my gaming rig earlier this year. I feel like I'm missing one thing...sound!! it's lacking...I've been using cheap $20 skull candy headphones forever and and that just isn't going to cut it anymore I mean the visuals are there with the PC just the sound is lacking...
Right now I'm using ATH-WS55BK and they are great for the price I got (paid $75 from a friend brand new who didn't want them) with onboard audio and they are ok but I need something more powerful! I'm not an audiofile I just like awesome sound to go with amazing PC visuals so I was wondering if some of you guys could help me out and suggest some sound cards/headphones for a beginner, novice, noob whatever you want to call it.
Right now I had my eye on the ATH-M50 but I'm stuck on what kind of sound card I should get to go along with it?? I'm mainly going to use it for gaming, and music. I like to listen to a lot of different music but mainly hip-hop/rap, electronic, dubstep, dance etc etc.
As far as my budget goes I mean..the sky is the limit but I don't think $1500 headphones is appropriate for a beginner such as myself .
So please any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated and in the meantime I'll be doing my research because I read posts all the time about some of the stuff you guys talk about and it looks like jibberish to me lol.
