Recently got into the higher end headphone scene after some bad times with "gaming headsets". Turtle beach, Logitech G35 and G930 and finally with the Hyper X Cloud 2 headset. The last one had many good reviews but the sound was horrible once I got it. Sent it back and picked up some AKG K612 pro's. I thought a Sound Blaster E1 would be enough for it but it wasn't, that got send back too. Now I'm waiting on the Magni 2 from Schiit to arrive. My question here is whether or not I should invest in a DAC as well. I'm using this with my PC for mostly FPS gaming and I listen to heavy metal. Playing BF4 for the first time with the E1 maxed out was a shock for me when it came to situation awareness, totally new gameplay experience. Is the onboard DAC good enough or should I splurge on the Modi 2 as well? My mobo is the Asus Z97-A. Thanks ahead of time!
