I have been looking around everywhere trying to decide on what to purchase for my next set of headphones. I have come across the Sennheiser HD598, Sennheiser HD 558, Beyerdynamic DT-880 Pro, Beyerdynamic DT-990 Pro, AKG Q701, and the ATH-AD700 headphones.
I was wondering which is best for an all around gaming, music, and movie headset (mostly gaming though)?
But I'm open to other suggestions.
I was looking at the Creative ZxR, Zx and Z sound cards with the Astro Mixamp to give the headphones the virtual surround effect for the games I play. I'm mostly pairing the sound card with the mix amp because I have heard that if you don't have a Dobly digital Live sound card you wont get anything but 2.1 sound.
I am also open to other suggestions to these as well.
I am also not sure if I will need an amp but I was looking at the Fiio E10, E9K, and the Schiit Magni and Modi set.
Also I'm going to be upgrading from my Tritton Ax Pro's.
So any help in the beginning steps of my trip to better audio equipment would be awesome, and thank you for your help.
