Headphone Choices?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone I'm new to the forums and have been reading a lot and would like some suggestions from the users on here.  First of all just so everyone knows my current pc specs are:

 

3570k@4,0Ghz

Asus Maximus V Formula

GTX 680

Live Gamer HD

Creative Sound Blaster Z

 

I am currently looking for a good pair of headphones for my SBZ, and have come down to the ad700/x, ad900/x or k701.  It will be mainly for gaming with some music listening. I play various types of games mainly MMO's and single player RPG's but also FPS and racing and anything in between.  The headsets I mentioned are ones that I see praised a lot on here but I am willing to take advice from more experienced users. I have not tried a pair of open headphones before but that is what I see a lot of people recommending about on here. If you have anymore questions to ask me to help me out go ahead I am needing all the help I can get.

Did you disable the motherboard's built in audio, in the BIOS?

I would assume the AD900X sounds better then the AD700X.

Between the AD900X and K701 ???

As a ATH-A900X owner, I'm biased for the (40-Ohm) ATH-AD900Xs.

but as the SB-Z's headphone jack has a 22-Ohm impedance, the 62-Ohm K701 might work a little better.

For your question I have not disabled my onboard audio in my BIOS I use my MB's Stereo Mix for my Live Gamer HD for when I record my gameplay.  As for the headphone choices I am clueless this is going to be my first decent audio setup so any direction is very helpful.

What features does the on-board audio have, over the SB-Z, when is comes to using the Live Gamer HD?

I know zero about the Live Gamer HD.

 

Might try asking on this thread (or reading it), about comparing the K701 to the AD900X.
