Hi, this is my first post. I recently found this website which basically is a goldmine for headphone lovers. I've been checking out various guides like Envy's and they've been really helpful! I know very little about audio in general so any help is appreciated.
To the point:
I've decided to get a pair of headphones for music and a headset for gaming. It's gonna be primarly used for Counter-Strike;GO and therefore need a wide soundstage(?) with not too much bass. I prefer closed-back over ear, as I sometimes attend noisy LANs, but it will mostly be used at home where there isn't much noise at all. However IF you were to recommend me open-back headphones/headset I'm gonna be needing earphones/IEMs(?) for LANs with good soundstage, isolation and fits with those hearing protection sets that isolates sound very well. Mic is really important aswell, doesn't really matter if it is clip-on mic or it comes with a headset, but it needs to be good and not pick up much backround noise.
To put it all in perspective of what I'm looking for: I've been using Logitech G930 and I've been really satisfied with the sound in-game, for music and the mic is really good! I don't really have a budget, but I want sound + mic for a good price.
Soundcard: Asus XONAR Essence STX or Creative Sound Blaster X-FI Titanium HD(?) (NOTE: Must work good for gaming and music)
Headphones/-set i've considered so far:
Audio Technica ATH-A900 Fullsize closed-back
Audio Technica ATH-A700X closed-back
Sennheiser PC 350 Special Edition closed-back (considering strongly)
Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 32/250 Ohm
