I think after reading more reviews on the DT770 pro.. these are the ones for me. People described them as a wide closed, giving them decent sound stage and decent bass. I guess I just need to figure out which ohms to get with xonar dgx. Seems like most people recommend the 80 ohms.

The Xonar DGX needs to be on max volume to just barely drive the 250-Ohm DT770s.

So the DT 770 Pro 80-Ohm is really the better choice.

Thank you very much for your help Purple! I really hate not being able to test these headphones myself, I figured this was the next best place :)

Ok... Last thing I promise. Anyone able to give me a comparison on the ad900x vs the dt770 80 ohm.. I found them both for the exact same price and heard that the 900x are good closed cans with good sound stage.

A900X and AD900X are 2 different headphone models. The latter is the open pair.

A comparison between the ATH-AD900X open headphones and the DT770 Pro 80-Ohm closed headphones?

I've been temped to get the AD900Xs, I would think the AD900Xs would out do the DT770, except for the DT770s booming bass.

 

I have the ATH-A900X closed headphones and do prefer them over my DT770s

Have done very little gaming in the past several years.

But when the new C&C comes out, I'll be gaming for hours and hours.

I didn't even know they were making a new command an conquer! OK so the reviews I have been reading say the a900x has great sound stage for being a closed headphone. Has good bass and is super comfy.. I am thinking these may be the ones. Also easy to drive which is good.

Currently the ATH-A900X is my preferred closed headphone, for music.

Ok Purple, I've been reading other forums here and have read many of your posts.. I like you.. haha. so I have the xonar dgx coming, would it be a good thing (or possible) to get and hook up the fiio e10 or e11 to the dgx? If I read right I understand that the amp is more powerful in the external, and with hooking it up to the sound  card  I still get the dolby headphone? or am I completely wrong in this?
