Im looking for headphones mainly for computer gaming and watching movies. My friend, who is a bigger audiophile, suggested Sennheiser. I have a few specific questions:
I was considering these setups:
1. PC350(or special edition) with astro mixamp
2. PC363 which comes with 7.1 audio(USB)
The obvious difference is 1.closed cans 2. open cans
A. What's the main difference between open and closed cans.....It can get noisy if Im traveling but not so much at home...do I need closed cans for better blocking of background noises or do Open cans have a superior sound?
B. What's the difference between the 7.1 audio device that comes with PC363 compared to the astro mixamp.
C. Do i need a soundcard? external amp? (currently have gigabyte z68a-d3h-b3 with 7.1 onboard audio)
This is mainly for the PC....but I do game on the PS3 and would like to use with that also if possible.
I want to thank you in advance for any suggestions!! Please comment on this with opinions, suggestions, guesses(lol)
