    Tigerleon got a reaction from sub68 in DT 770 (80ohm) Bass heavier alternative   
    These imo sound less bassy than my 990 250 ohm. I think the 80 ohm model sounds more sterile in that region but more precise and neutral in the bass. The treble is something you can't really escape.The AKG's might fit you. Not sure how good the sound quality is with BT tho.

    NEVER use any surround feature for headphones. Just ruins the audio quality. Always stereo.

    For pop and rock you want that little extra sprinkle on the treble and bass probably. Not just a flat headphone. There are easier to drive ones out there and harder which benefit a lot from an amp and some don't.
     
    The popular Beyerydynamic DT 990 pros are great for mainly comp and for listening to pop and rock. BUT they are pretty sharp in the frequency response which is something you need to take into consideration. They have a moderatly wide and open soundstage and great imaging for pin pointing stuff. The build is good. They can get pretty flimsy after 1 or 2 years and the comfort gets worse the more you use them. If you are tolerate to treble or have bad ears. They will sound fine. You can always EQ I guess.
     
    I currently use the X2HR from Philips and they are amazing for anything I use them with. Balanced sound, a bit boosted in treble and bass. Very open soundstage. Still pretty forward mids tho. They are easy to drive, very comfortable with the memory foam earpads and the huge headband. Build quality is amazing, I would say they are overbuilt. The cable is removable, it is just a standard 3.5mm cable. You can use a Vmoda boom pro or any other mic/cable combo with it and turn it into a headset. So far the comfort is great after months of use.
     
    There are many sennhesier headphones out there such as the HD 58X or 6XX from drop.com but judging from your music taste and which games you play, I think you'll find them too laid back in treble and bass. Sennheiser's signature is mostly forward mids.
     
    As for a DAC/amp. I will strongly recommend something like a sound blaster G6 or G3 since they can be used both on PC and on console.
     
    These are open back I just recommended which is something I will never stop using because they sound so much better for games and music. Some people may need closed back for monitoring or just listening without being disturbed.

    Tigerleon got a reaction from bulletrullen_ in What dac/amp to buy?   
    You should probably go for the G6 if you don't plan on using the RCA ports or upgrading to even more amps or DACs in the future. The G6 will power and sound great with almost any headphone you throw at it.

    For outside get some other earphones to use. You don't wanna take the Fidelio or DT990 outside, I mean they are not portable anyway lol
    Of all my headphones the X2HR is the biggest.
     
    I doubt you'll be disappointed in the X2HR, it's surprisingly one of the best headphones you can get at such afforable prices.

    Yeah just realised that, guess I won't take them outside, but from what I have seen online the Fedilio x2hr and the DT990 are both really good but I am leaning more towards the Fedilio since they are easier to drive so I don't need to buy an amp. Still going to look around for a bit at what people have to say about the sennheiser. 
    Thank you very much, your recommendations were very helpful.

    This is why you never buy audio products from keyboard manufacturers. Anyways. Have you checked everything in sound settings in windows?
    Edit: Like volume mixer or when you right click the sound icon and press sound and not the above options since that takes you to windows's bullshit settings.

    I had the corsair void pro wired and when I got my sennheiser gsp300 I though that the void pro sounded really really bad ... lack of detail, muddy ... it's hard to describe ... it's like listening to something behind a wall ... like you hear stuff but not really ... the gsp300 are way superior to the corsair void pro ... my gf got the jbl quantum 100 and I can say that they are also far superior to the void pro ... but not the gsp300.
     
    the corsair virtuose are the only corsair I head good things about in reviews ... but those might have been biased tho and I've never listened to them so that's about all I can say about those.

    What is your budget? To answer your question tho. No, they simply aren't. The build might be nice. But the comfort and sound is so f'ing bad compared to good headphones with a seperate mic or for example cooler master MH/52 since they are studio monitors reskinned with a good mic on it.

    Okay, pros of MH752:
    One of the best mics for the price (if you care about that)
    Really good tuned drivers
    Great comfort (tried my friend's)
    A bit worse build quality than Clouds (but lighter)
    Cons:
    7.1 surround option since 7.1 surround in headsets is trash anyways.
     
    HyperX cloud 2's
    Pros:
    (Kind of) good tuned drivers (too bassy and a huge downspike in treble)
    Good comfort (pads are worse than the MH752's IMO, also tried from one of my friend's)
    Bit better build quality
    Cons:
    Bad mic
    Too much bass and mushier than the MH752's
     
    TL;DR If you want sound quality, MH752's. Build goes to the Cloud 2's. Build isn't that different and the MH752's are still definitely sturdy compared to most gaming headsets even at the $200 pricepoint.
     
    If you want other recommendations other than gaming headsets and want to improve your audio quality even more you can start looking at studio or "audiophile" headphones with a seperate mic. For example, the ones I am using, the Fidelio X2HR and for that you can get a 3.5mm mic/cable combo such as the Vmoda boom pro that can be inserted into the headphones and turn them into a headset. Another headphone from Philips are the SHP 9500 or 9600 which you could call a little brother to the X2HR's. Much more value for what you are paying rather than getting a gaming headsets. No BS features or unneccesary design just plain good audio fidelity and that is what you pay for.

    Age of a driver barely matters it's more about quality. The mh752 is just tuned better than the cloud 2 and the drivers have better capabilities making it a higher quality headphone.

    Cooler master MH752. The cloud 2's are pretty old and uses pretty old drivers. The design of the MH752's are from the same company and are a reskin of the takstar pro 82 but with a mic on it. Razer is just overall bad.

    This really means nothing. It just means a company spent extra money to get certification confirming it does at least 24 bits 96khz. Which most devices support 24 bits and most people can't hear over 20khz. So it's a sticker used more of a gimmick than something actually materring

    You are currently looking at the wrong place of the market for good audio in a headset. Forget about "gaming" headsets and focus on researching actual good audio. Let alone the build and comfort is questionable on all gaming headsets.
     
    What I'd recommend are the MH752 from cooler master. They are "gaming" headphones BUT not made up from scratch from a clueless gaming company that makes keyboards or mice. They are reskinned with a really good mic on it for being on a headset. It is removable as well so it wont annoy you at all times. It has got a USB dongle thing that is pretty good and I think better than any motherboard built in audio out there. And for the love of F don't use surround. It doesn't make sense. Anyways. There are other headphone/mic combos out there that will be muuch much better than any headphone from steelseries, logitech, razer etc. The ones I use are the Fidelio X2HR from Philips. They are open back which is much better for music, movies and gaming IMO. They also have a removable 3.5mm cable which can be switched out for a mic/cable combo that can be inserted so you've got a headset. These headphones are built like a tank, super comfy with memory foam ear pads that are HUGE. The sound is really open and has a good imaging for that pin pointy accuracy. I'd rather recommend these over the MH752's since they are closed back and not worth it if you want to upgrade to a headphone DAC/amp later on.

    Tigerleon reacted to Psittac in will my motherboard support the full potential of my sennheiser massdrop hd 6xx?   
    Full potential is a misnomer on the 6xx because it is VERY revealing of everything involved whether that's the source (flac etc), dac, amp or even a bad cable can make them sound better or worse.  I would however say that you could enjoy them just fine with onboard, I did this little experiment but remember I don't have golden ears and for a bit had some taenites but it's just a simple quick comparison.  I went between onboard, single ended and balanced and each time it was an upgrade (I adjusted volume to keep them equal).  Someone once told me that you don't know what your missing in audio until you've heard it, then in retrospect you can tell what has improved..... so just enjoy what you have while you have it and if you want to make it a hobby or just find something new and interesting then start adding thing's.  The 6xx scales very well with improvements to the chain so it will appreciate what ever you do.
     
    I would say however that tubes on these are going to give you the biggest change/improvement per dollar spent AND you can get a new experience for $20+ a pop for tubes and change it up. That would be my first purchase after the headphones personally.
     
    The rabbit hole goes deep in this hobby and these can's but it's an enjoyable journey no matter how far you go with it

    It is just not about getting listenable volumes. It is as you said, about powering the full frequency range properly. Getting better bass and definitely the fast highs.

    Tigerleon reacted to rice guru in Which headset should I get? Razer blackshark v2x or HyperX cloud stinger core or Coolermaster MH751 or any other recommendations around this price $50   
    Between the 3 the cooler master all the way. The only other thing I could reccomend is the Koss GMR headsets. But they have pretty bad build quality great sound which is what koss is known for.
