So I've been using this 5.1 Surround "Gaming" headset -the CM Sirus True 5.1 Surround headset- and I have recently had my eyes opened to the world of audio. I've been doing research and such and I'm not quite sure whether this pair of headphones is actually better than a pair high-quality stereo headphones for gaming or not. I know it certainly falls far behind the audiophile-grade headphones in terms of music, which is one of the major reasons I want to get myself a proper audio setup.
Here's my question: Is there a pair of audiophile headphones (Budget: $250 or under) that will fair well with gaming as well as generally have good audio quality? I'd rather not have to switch between 2 sets of headphones, but if I have to that's fine. I also need these headphones to be circumaural and closed-ear.
Right now I've been looking at getting a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro's (250 Ohm version) and an Objective 2 Amplifier, as well as a ODAC. I'm not sure whether I would be able to ditch my current headphones or not. Like I said earlier, I'm okay with having 2 pairs of headphones and just switching between them, but I'd rather not. I play pretty much all genres of games, however, I probably play first person shooters most often. These headphones I have now were a massive improvement for me, at least in games like Battlefield 3.
Thanks in advance! :)
