Hello there, this is a topic i know you all will say "go read the recommended headphones guide" "look at Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide" but i have looked at all i could find so far :-)
the problem with this case is that i want a nice bass pair of headphones but i also want extreme clarity for competitive gaming :S meaning i am split atm. between the AKG Q701 (for extreme clarity) and the Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO, 80 ohms (for good bass) so i need help to find a balance
my priorities are around 65% gaming to 35% bass music / movies
Budget - up to 270$ (keep in mind i live in Denmark and prices are around 30-50% higher here :S)
Source - motherboard sound card. i know it's not as good as a sound card or external amp but this one seems quite good. board: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/MAXIMUS_VI_HERO/#overview
Requirements for Isolation - None really, would be nice with a little bit but i hear open headphones are best for gaming? but since they are open there is no isolation :D = basicly no requirements sadly the open headphones do actuly let out to much sound for me to be able to play with freinds :D and especial at LAN's!
Preferred Type of Headphone - Full size! need to be an over the ear type i hate when they press against my ears :S
Preferred tonal balance - well i am a basshead but again i looking for some headphones that can also be good for competitive gaming
Past headphones - Steelseries Siberia V2 (which i have broken 3 of now so now it's time for some good quality pair of headphones)
Preferred Music - Dubstep, hardstyle, some pop, just overall bass music :D
Location - Expensive little Denmark...
just FYI i don't know a thing about the different drives, if i had to pick by my self i would just take the biggest drives i could get with the biggest Frequency range :D just to let you know how little i know about this :D
if i did not supply you with enough information to help me just ask :-)
hope you can help me out, and thanks a lot in advance!
