Now I have SoundBlasterX G6 and AKG K712 PRO. Most of simple genres sound good enough on this combo but metal ones like metalcore and posthardcore sound quite bad for me. The vocals are kinda on the background and mids sound messy.
By now I found two DAC\Amps that I like: used Oppo HA-2(or SE) and new Fiio K5 Pro. Pls help me to make a decision or maybe you can advise me some more DAC\Amps with nicely presented mids under 200$?

Does the K712 sound better, plugged into something besides the Sound BlasterX G6?
Have you double checked all the G6's audio settings?
