Hi, i am planning on buying a pair of HD 598 by the end of this month, i already have a pair of HD 555 that i bought about 2 years ago, and i found them great and extremely confortable but lacking a bit of bass and punch. So after that i bought the ath m50 , closed cans with bigger and nicer bass, but i find them quite unconfortable to use for hours.
I mostly use my opened cans on my computer to play video games, watch movies and listen to music in that order, i have an ASUS Xonar DG sound card , the one that costs around 20 bucks, is this sound card enough for the HD 598?? or should i buy an AMP/DAC device? if so, which one is recommended? my budget is around 150 US$. I wish to get it all from the HD 598.
Also can anyone make a short comparison between the HD 598 and ATH M50 regarding the clarity of sound, i find the ATH M50 awesome for music, with a big deep bass, which i found awesome for heavy drumming songs, but regarding gaming and movies i find the ATH M50 lacking compared to the HD 555.
Thanks in advance,
