Help me find a good headphone setup please.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, I have spent a few weeks now researching a good "audiophile" setup and I really would like some opinions on my unique needs. First of all I  have about $350 to spend. I am a PC gamer first so a good sound stage is pretty important, a movie watcher second and a music listener a distant third. I would like a set of headphones that are great for gaming but also sound good while watching a video. And last but not least I would like to use a amp dac combo if it is needed. I say this because I only have onboard sound. I am a complete noob when it comes to anything audio related but I do know that average sound is not good enough. I know this is not a lot of money to work with, but I would really appreciate any help you guys have.

Some Sennheiser HD558s and a Schiit Magni/Modi combo might be a good place to start your search.
