Planning on buying Audio technica ath-ad900x open headphones need advice

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

Im new to the audiophile world. Ive been thinking about getting a quality headphone for some time now. After doing some research on this site and reading reviews, this is what I have decided on:

 

Its mainly going to be used for PC gaming (RTS and RPG, I dont do FPS), listening to music and watching movies. I also need a mic to communicate. Many of you have said here that gaming headsets are overpriced and come with subpar quality parts so Im going to stay away from those ( was originally planning to buy a dedicated gaming headset).

 

My budget is around $250 and this is my plan:

 

Audio Technica ATH-AD900X (open air)

 

Antlion Modmic

 

Asus Xonar DG Sound card

 

What do you guys think about this combo? And as the Sennheiser PC360 is pretty close to the price how would you compare it against the AD900X?

 

I will appreciate and input

 

Thanks.

The AD900X should be warmer and more musical over the PC360.

So I think the AD900X with Xonar DG would make a good combo.
