First of all I want to say that I’m a beginner and just started learning thing or two about audio equipment thus I need help finding headphones for fps gaming, specifically Hunt: Showdown (a first person shooter which is practically designed to play around sound clues triggering around you).
Years ago I fell into a trap buying 7.1 surround sound Siberia v2 gaming headset when I was playing competitive CS, and couldn’t be more wrong about gaming headsets. When it broke on me, I bought HyperX Cloud stinger because I just didn’t want to spend much money on gaming headsets and also I didn’t feel the quality that I should be getting for price when I bought Siberia years ago. Right now, I’m having trouble pinpointing footsteps around me, all I hear is a lot of background/ambient noise and I really need to stop moving and focus to hear players walking in proximity.
Anyways, what I need - a good set of cans:
List item closed back headphones, sometimes I can hear a TV going off in living room
List item not bass heavy, quality of explosions and gunshots is not important at all, just want to know the direction and hear players
List item if possible emphasis on treble, allowing me to hear footsteps more clearly
Also I don’t know if I would need dac/amp so you can maybe recommend me one to combo with headphones.
My budget is around 200$ but can go more if its worth it
