As the title suggests I’m having a hard time which of these three to upgrade to…
I mostly play FPS games and I also do casual music listening (via Tidal mostly). When it comes to games, I play TF2 competitively where audio isn’t as important as in other games such as CS or Valorant (although I do play those a lot too…). I also generally play for very long sessions almost every day so comfort matters a lot.
My current setup consists of an Ifi Zen Dac with an additional power supply and HE-4XX.
The headphones I considered upgrading to are:
Beyerdynamic 1990 (or 1770 since closed-back might be better because of where I live)
Neumann NDH20 (this was discounted to the point that it’s the same price as the Beyer in my country although I heard a lot of people found it uncomfortable so this looks like a no-no for me)
Which one do you think would fit my use case best?
PS.: I don’t know a lot about audio but is it worth going balanced for me? I do own a custom 3.5mm female to 4.4mm male cable but I always felt like it was not the correct way doing it so I’ve never used it.
Kind regards, tekszi
