I’ve been doing research on a new pair of headphones to upgrade from my old uncomfortable(I often have real long gaming sessions) hyper x cloud alphas for competitive fps gaming like Apex Legends/Warzone and Destiny 2 and other non fps games and discord voice chat. I also want to use them for music if I get into it but the priority is fps.
I have a budget of $300.00 or so for the headphones and I will get an amp/dac stack to power it. I’m leaning towards the DT 880 600ohm with something like a shiit stack amp and dac with it. The main thing holding me back now is that I was pretty excited about trying open back but after reading so many reviews and posts I’m leaning toward the 880 as I feel it would be great for gaming as well as if I get into music(I listen to mostly rock).
How much of a difference is there between semi open headphones like the DT 880 and fully open back headphones? Is the 880 more open than closed? Will I still get the open back experience with it or should I look for something else? Any other recommendations(The TYGR 300 R is not in stock and looks like it will be a while). I do not want a mic on the headphones as I have a blue yeti desktop mic. Thanks!
