Hi guys. I'm loving the help I've been getting so far. I've settled on a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770 80s for music listening and probably gaming as well. I currently have the Astro a40 2013 system. I don't think my motherboard's sound card outputs Dolby Digital (MSI 970a-g46 if anybody wants to check). I want to have a good balance between positional accuracy and immersion as I play both FPS and single player games. One thing I do like about the Mixamp is the ability to change presets.
Would I be better off keeping the Mixamp or selling it to get a Sound Card? I've looked at both the Creative and Asus ones and can't pick between the two. I'd like to spend < $100 on a sound card. Thanks!
Also, how bad are the AD700, HD598 and HD558 when it comes to immersion? I understand that they're very good for positional accuracy, but I've heard they lack bass, which seems like it would be bad for immersion. Thanks everyone!
