Thread Starter 

looking for a headphone to immerse myself into games such as bf4 batman and listening to music i listen to anything from vivaldi to house music and metal sometimes umm just need some help i have a alienware 17 laptop not sure if i need a amp or anything but thats fine i like rich bass :D so when explosions or bass drops happen i know i also like clear sounding stuff XD im liking the dt 990 250 ohm and also the dt 770 80 ohms idk the 990 open back seems like it would have good sounds with games and music.. anyway im new here but hope to be a proud owner of some beast headphones in the next few days ^^ thx any adviced or recommendations will help im pretty lost especially when it comes to amps and dac stuff

Well, DT990 are really bright headphones that pairs well with most high quality recordings but sound over bright/sibilant with most modern music, they need extra amplification (Fiio E10/E07K/E17/E12).

 

Beyerdynamic DT770 80 Ohms are the ones to go if you are looking for powerful bass, but still very good sound quality and confort. They don't need extra amplification but would benefit from it.

 

You should also consider AudioTechnica ATH-WS99 if you are looking for great bass response, and very good overall sound quality. No amp needed for this headphones.

 

If you prefer open headphones, you should read about Sony MDR-MA900.

 

Best Luck!

If you want really big soundstage you should consider AKG Q701. They have the biggest soundstage at its price point. They also need an amp to sound good. They are on the bright side, but not as bright as DT990.
