Upgrading my Sound, first time head-Fi User! :)

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

To start out, my name's Narokuu, im a twitch TV livestreamer and im finally able to budget a huge sound upgrade. 

 

Old gear:

 

On board Sound card from my Asus Crosshair V

Creative Sound blaster 3d Tactic Alpha headset

Ant Lion Audio Mod Mic

 

Gear i am ordering (hopefully if approved by users here)

 

Beyerdynamic DT-770 Pro 250 ohm

Magni Amp

Modi DAC

 

MXL Tempo USB Condenser Microphone (with stand/pop filter/shockmount)

 

All cables and accessories needed (i think) AKA RCA cable to connect the magni/modi

 

 

I have a set budget and this combo literally meets it perfectly, so i hope its going to sound amazing (I know it will) but i have never had this 

high of quality before, so I'm probably in for a huge surprise. Now YES, i am a gamer, however i do not require any sort of surround sound, directional audio etc

i enjoy music in games, and mostly I listen to music while playing anyways, the game music has no pull for me (I play league of legends, and indie games)

so, i do want more towards 80%+ music, rest game sound.

 

So, let me know if i have chosen well (mostly on the headphones and DAC/Amp i know the Mic is going to be great.

That DAC/Amp/Headphone combo should work fine.

Sounds like a solid plan.

Be sure to report back. You know the dt770 250 is rather neutral compared to, say, the 80 ohm edition, which is bassy? Any reason you want closed headphones?

i wanted the more bassy version, however they are way more expensive. and i only have a budget of 500$ for everything.

Seems expensive. Where do you live?

I live in the north eastern US. I would updater my profile, but i have not been able to have access to that yet =(  bt the 250 ohms are about 160 ish and the 30/80 ones are 229+ 

 

so I'm not sure what to do. and i prefer closed headphones because i do vocal covers, and i also have a small apartment, and don't want o let any bleeding sound wake up not only my roommate, but neighbors.

I'll think about some options. The dt770 250 is probably at least as good as the rest of the beyer family

My biggest worry is not getting enough bass, i really do love a lot of bass when listening to music, and not just electronic or dubstep, i love really bassy heavy metal etc. and i know using this setup i have no Equalizer.. so im still kinda skeptical.

I see...
