Headphones HELP

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was thinking about buying new headphones and I want to get your input on the Sennheiser 363D Gaming headset.

 

I've been thinking about buying this headset for weeks already and I just want to know what's your take on this one.

 

If you guys still have any suggestions, feel free to suggest :)

 

My budget is around $250

he would have to buy an amp to properly drive it, would break the budget

 

headphones:

 I would go this route, you could get a Fiio E10 along with it :D, modmic or blue snowball for the mic (blue snowball because not out of stock and USB so not as bad of compatibility issues in comparison to the modmic)

amp/dac:

Uh, no. The HD 5xx series have a low impedance.

it's the caliber of headphones that I would get an amp for

 

I think you're thinking he should get a better source if he gets better headphones; getting an amp without first improving your source will only make a bad source louder.

ShearMe is trying to say you don't need one. Anything suggested so far in this thread will get plenty loud on your onboard.

 

Beyerdynamic DT990pro? At 250 Ohms, THAT might need an amp.
