I recently build a new computer and was looking for a headset to accommodate it.
In my search I found that most headsets made for gaming are inadequate compared to what is really available.
I've made some decisions on what I plan on purchasing and they include:
- Sennheiser HD 650
- Schiit Lyr
- Schiit Bifrost
Any input on this set up would be pretty cool.
If you can, compare the HD 650 to the Beyer DT 880 600 ohm, find a retailer who will allow you to do a return, beacause you will either LOVE the HD 650 and hate the DT 880 or you'll LOVE the DT 880 and Hate the HD 650, as each has a very oppisite sound signiture but both are technically on the same level
OR you've love them both for different reasons. either way, do get a chance to try something oppisite of the HD 650 in terms of sound :3, headphones are like food, your individual taste will determine what you like, and it's best to try as much as you can before you settle on one headphone
but if you get a chance to compare both at the same time, spend 4 days with one of them and after your used to the sound of one, listen to the other, notice the changes and determine which you like.
