Depends on what kind of compromises you'd rather have for the tonal qualities and imaging, plus what sort of amplification it will require.I am planning on getting a new headphone, but have a few concerns. Which headphone would be the best for mainly gaming and some movie/music(I mainly listen to pop and soul music) for highest quality/clarity for a newbie like myself in audio world?
BT transmits digital audio so a BT-equipped headphone will already have a DAC in it to decode the audio, although it will have a simpler circuit on both than an all-out DAC and HPamp, not to mention low power output on the amp circuit since it uses a battery that has to power the BT receiver as well, usually an integrated audio chip like what you find on smartphones albeit likely running uninhibited by smartphone firmware designed to maximize battery life particularly for reviews and tests not done by audiophiles who will gladly make the trade (although that's where rooting comes in).And as far as i understood it is not possible to use amp/dac or soundcard with wireless headphones?
That depends on the user. For one, wireless headphones tend to have high enough sensitivity on the drivers that way they can get really loud for the target market to easily hear them as "better" even if most likely don't have as smooth a response or as good imaging as a similarly priced headphone. The latter doesn't factor in the cost of the amplifier; on top of which, regular users may not necessarily hear the difference between even an improperly driven wired headphone vs some bass boosted wireless ones, or maybe even dislike a properly driven headphone that has a flatter response.I am in between PXC 550 or Momentum 2.0 wireless over-ear for now, but open to any suggestions, like open-pack headphones using amp/dac(hd 660s or etc) but with opportunity cost of being wired. Is the difference worth it?
Maybe just stick with your headphones. If you find they're great for immersive gaming and you can't really pin point what's wrong with the sound for music anyway then might as well stick with what you have that works well for what you're doing with them rather than just blowing money out of sheer curiosity for one application that doesn't even rank that high on your list.I currently use gaming headset Logitech G933 which is not bad in terms of sound quality and virtual 7.1 surround immersiveness and also convenient because of being wireless. Recently i found out that headphones are much superior to any high-end headsets,which i bought being impressed by their side marketing points which i don’t even make use of. All i care is sound reality/quality and immersiveness, while being convenient and comfortable to certain extent. I really liked the looks and conmfort of Sennheiser pxc 550 and momentum 2.0 wireless and they both cost exactly the same here in the UK(270£). What you guys would recommend to a person like me? Which headphone should i get?
