I have been on my adventure to find my ideal Gaming setup using headphones. I have always loved good sound and have a couple 5.1 setups in my home. Becoming a father has put a very large damper on being able to use my sound systems for gaming and movies at night and I decided I need to get some good headphones for my new "quiet" audio setup.
I think I am leaning toward the Pro 900. I am looking for a great gaming / movie headphone. I have had some listening time with a few different headphones as I have been exploring my personal preferences in the world of headphone audio.
I have auditioned the ATH-AD700, AKG Q701, Beyer DT990 pro (250 Ohm) and the Superlux HD668b. At first, I thought my preference was leaning toward a more balanced sound, but I now seem to be less interested in balance , and more about fun and immersion. I will mostly be using these for PC gaming with a Sound Blaster Z. I will also be using them for movies and Tv shows. Lastly, music is important, but I am willing to buy a different set of Headphones for music in the future.
I have recently discovered the Buttkicker Gamer 2, which acts like a silent sub-woofer by vibrating your office chair to low frequencies. I absolutely love it and it has made me feel like I want more bass in my headphones.
However, I am very picky. I kinda want it all - good sound stage, detailed imaging, Immersion, bass...ect. I play FPS like Black ops 2, but I also have many single player campaigns - so I wanted something good at competitive gaming, but fun for solo playing.
I saw Mad Lust Envy's gaming guide which is what lead me to check out the Pro 900s. However, I am interested in others opinions regarding gaming.
I started this forum because I could not find a forum that was dedicated to those using the Pro 900 for gaming. And I thought i might be helpful in the future for others looking at these HP for gaming.
Anyone that has used the Pro 900s for gaming please share your likes/dislikes about them.
