Sennheiser PC360 vs Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro (Gaming/Multimedia)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, I'm looking to buy a new headset/phones soon because my Astro A40s are a static mess. I've seen the PC360 from Sennheiser and it looks really good as a gaming headset, and from what I've read so far, it doesn't seem to suck like most other gaming headsets. I've also ran across the DT990 Pro from Beyerdynamic on Amazon for what appears to be a pretty cheap $150. The PC360 is just about $15 more so there's not a big price difference. If the DT990 is better I'll get a ModMic with it. My only concern is that the DT990 may not do as good with surround sound as the PC360 might for gaming. Which would be better for gaming and listening to music/watching movies and video calls? (Mostly gaming and video calls). Thanks in advance.

 

Edit: Forgot about the Sennheiser HD558. How does it stack up against these?

In general. the (50-Ohm) PC360 appears to be a (50-Ohm) HD558 with a built in mic.

The DT990 need to be used with a decent headphone amplifier (the PC360/HD558s are amplifier optional).

The DT990 sound is more full of life (bass/treble), the PC360/HD558s a little more cold and functional (more german?)

I really doubt there is a big difference between them for surround sound gaming.

Thanks, I think I'll get the PC360 since it's easier to drive and I won't need a amp or a mic.
