Looking for a set of cans to use in gaming, I sifted through your typical "gaming headset" garbage and got nothing. Luckily I came across with Mad Lust Envy's legendary thread and I got myself a shortlist consisting of:
Philips Fidelio X1
Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro
AKG K702 65th Ann. Edition
I love bass, I love immersion so bass is important -that does not mean I'm in for any kind of muddy lows. I just want to feel the beat as they would say, the depth (resonance?) and clarity is essential.
I'm not your pro gamer -but an avid gamer nonetheless- however I'd like to experience being able to hear the audible positioning clues from the environment.
I've been told that the last two from my list are hard to drive without an external amp. That may be a game changer for me too.
Still, I want to purchase a quality headphone and at some other Turkish hi-fi place, they told me that hi-fi headphones may not be my thing and some recommended the new 9.1 wireless Sony HW700DS headphones.
What do I do? What would you recommend from the list or add into it ?
