Strange choice. The K601 is a different headphone than the x70x. Just because it's AKG and starts with "K" doesn't mean it will sound like a budget K701 or anything.
They should still be decent though, but I would have gone with Q701. And the ODAC for gaming? I don't get that, but whatever.
BTW, IMO all these AKG gaming questions from newish members who are clearly reference MLE's guide should post them in THAT thread, instead of posting them in the K712 or anniversary threads and derailing them a little.
Are dolbyheadphone tricks and things like that an absolute need for gaming ? I dont think so ^^ , not all games beneficits from dolbything etc . I don't like the sound of game with dolby or cmss 3d from creative , sound become like plastiky/metalic + echo and fake . I prefer to loose a bit of positionning for a more "real sound" .
Playing music with dolby on , urrg , but for games for me it's the same i don't like this kind of "processing" that alter that much the sound .
