Hey all, I was directed here for another forum, so I’ll just copy my post over! Thanks for any help!
Hey guys, so my current setup for audio is:
Sennhesier HD 598
Blue Yeti w/ Shockmount & Boom
I’m strongly considering doing a big audio upgrade later this year/early next year. And I’m curious what the " ideal" amount to spend is, for a solid upgrade to both. I was considering a possible budget of $1,500CAD for both . If I could get near similar quality sound for less, I’d strongly consider it, and I’d maybe budge if just a little more will give me a big bump.
My Audio “use”:
PC: For my PC I mainly game, and I play lots of games where clear nice sound is a factor (Escape from Tarkov, etc), but I also love being immersed in single player stories, etc. I love the current comfort, and sound of my HD598. I love the open back, but when I’m not gaming I’m listening to music and browsing the web/etc, and my main choice of music is hiphop, and am a big old head, and more grimy hip hop, and I’d love headphones with just a little more bass and punch, but don’t necessarily want to lose the open back. So a balance between music and gaming is ideal.
I’m also not looking to upgrade any recording stuff, just my audio output
I’m also 100% game for an AMP/DAC to fine tune the listening experience.
TV: Pretty much solely Movies, the odd console game. But I’d love a deep immersive movie experience.
I’ll add any more required info if needed! Thanks!
