Thanks, I'm really looking forward to it, but I have to say I'm worried about the fit. Let's see, hopefully it won't be a problem.
I believe it, but I'm actually considering getting the Soundblaster Z for the SBX virtual surround. Unfortunately I've read that the Z makes stereo sound worse even compared to onboard solutions. The Titanium HD should be better, but the drivers sound like such a hassle. I'll read some more before I make my final decision, maybe I'll end up just downloading Razer Virtual Surround.
I had to rule out open back due to my current situation, but I'll definitely be looking into them for my next upgrade.
I wonder if the razor surround is still free... In my opinion it's a decent software that do some games justice. Valve makes games that already have great stereo sound for headphones. Battlefield though sound great, benefits from a little artificial boost in regards to audio positioning for headphones.
Both a900x and k550 benefit people with large heads, the a900x found itself less troublesome for smaller ears.
My recommendation would be to get a dedicated amp/dac to future proof yourself for other headphones. Although I guess the sound blaster does look nice.
