    I would expect the DT1990 to provide a better overall sound quality, compared to the DT990.
    I myself own the DT990-250-Ohm & 600-Ohm, the 250-Ohm T70 and 250-Ohm T90.

    I forget, are you just playing on PC?

    1. If you play on Xbox, you can just use the Dolby Atmos app for it. If you play on PC, you have limitless options. Dolby Atmos app, HeSuVi, or buy a cheap usb stick like the Xonar U3 that has virtual surround and can be sent either optical or line out to your dac. On PS4, you're out of luck.

    2. Of course. Though the GX is NOT the LCD2. They sound different. But yes, if you have an LCD2, or literally any LCD, you can use the mic cable with them and turn them into a headset.

    Any plans to review anything from the Focal line (Elex or Clear?)
  5. Mad Lust Envy Contributor
    Not unless they reach out and send me something, or someone is willing to loan me a pair.

    @Mad Lust Envy If I may ask, in your Multichannel VSS gaming and movie experiences with the SXFI Air, how much ‘out of your head’ depth did you get from the center channel?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Wonder if it transfers S-XFI/SBX over optical out.

    my Fostex-TR X00 are great for gaming, paired with my Sound BlasterX AE-5, great directional sound and effects.

    X3 is a bit underwhelming from what I was hoping it would be. Oh well, Back to my x7 with sparkos :)

    I'm thinking of doing the Sparkos upgrade on my X7. Asgard 3 was intriguing, but with no optical input, that doesn't work for me.

    I own the Clears. Not that great for gaming, imaging is amazing but the soundstage is very narrow which hurts positional cues.
  14. TeeReQs
    Good to know. Elex is more in my price range anyways, but any idea if they are similar to the clears in regards to soundstage?

    sparkos are def worth it in the x7. I’ve had them for over a year and they always seem to surprise me no matter what I throw at them. Well worth it
