TL:DR; Currently own ATH-M50 + O2+ODAC Combo. I want to upgrade. Primarily Gaming. Looking for advice. Up to $300usd.
I've read some posts about the AD700 for gaming. Some people love them, other people hate them for the same reason: Their unnatural large soundstage.
I've been using a pair of ATH-M50 for music listening at work for about 2 years now (around 8 hours daily) and I love them so much that I recently bought another pair for gaming at home.
I also bought (hasn't arrived yet) the O2+ODAC Combo from JDS Labs to replace the integrated DAC on my gaming PC. I already know (thanks to Head-Fi) that the Sorround effects are achieved by software and that all you really need is a good DAC.
So I was wondering, now that I own an AMP + DAC a whole new world of possibilities on headphones opened for me, and I wanted to ask this forum for advice.
What headphones do you recommend between $200 and $300 for gaming?
Thanks for your time.
