Long time forum frequenter although I have never registered. Nice to meet you all :)
Need a headphone for about 60% games (FPS, RPG's, and MMO's), 30% music, and 10% movies. I was originally looking at the AD700's, but I would like something with a a pit punchier bass because I listen to electronic music, and I want to be more immersed in games and movies. Which led me to the Ultrasones. They appear to be excellent well rounders, and they look pretty nice! Not sure about comfort though.
So this leads me to my questions... can anyone with these headphones please comment on how they sound during games/how they feel? Also I read that these two models are pretty similar just different appearances, but someone did say on here that the DJ1 Pro has a wider soundstage. Which would you recommend more for a mix of games/movies/music and for comfort?
Finally, would I need any extra equipment to really make these headphones shine? I was thinking about getting a PCI-E sound card (maybe Xonar DGX or DS) but as I said I switch between my desktop and laptop a lot, so maybe a USB soundcard like the Xonar U3 and/or a external DAC? Which would be the best route for these headphones? I'm an audio newbie (coming from an X12 headset) so I really don't know what the real world difference is between a sound card and external DAC, and which I would be better off with, so any help would be appreciated!
Thanks a ton guys! :)
