Hello, I'm new to this site and as far as I can tell it's the best out there for headphones. I've been researching my next buy for 2 weeks now and find myself only clicking head-fi links. This post and the headphones I'm buying are mainly for gaming. I currently have some Astro A40's and though they aren't too bad they are starting to develop physical damage from having them for a while so I am planning on getting some headphones. I have 3 main products I'm looking at (always open to more ideas) the Sennheiser HD 598, the Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro 250 ohm and the AKG Q 701's. Whichever one I decide on will be mainly used for gaming so positional cues such as being able to hear footsteps well (think Counter Strike) is a necessity, they will also be used for music (mostly rock, metal and classical) and movies and whatever else I listen to but positional cues are more important for me. I don't have a sound card but I do have an Astro 2011 mixamp which I assume I can use with any headset that has a 3.5mm cable? I don't mind how headphones look as long as it works well and is some what comfortable (although the AKG Q 701 is iffy). Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
