Hi! To keep thinks simple I will state what I currently have and what I am aiming for.
My current setup:
- Schiit Magni Modi stack. (would not mind an upgrade but its not my main priority, the schiit stack serves me well)
- 58x Jubilees with Dekoni Choice leather pads. (gaming, media consumption and music)
- Porta Pros with Yaxi Pads (mainly for portable use and ipad use)
- DT 990 pro (I opened them and I think I messed up one of the drivers, sometimes a bit to aggressive for me, depending on the game)
I am looking for is new cans in order to take a step up from the 58x jubilees. Better imaging and soundstage mainly for competitive gaming. I have been reading a ton through old post and I have some in mind that I will list here, but let me know if there is something out there that fits my needs and I haven’t read about it yet. Also let me know if the dac/amp combo is fine for me or should I need to be looking for an upgrade in the near future.
My options (Btw budget is around 700$ ish I think if I go higher I would definitely need new gear to power and get the true potential of high end cans.)
- Beyerdynamic TGYR 300r
- Beyerdynamic Dt 1990s
- HD 6xx (worried it would be very alike to the 58x jubilees)
- Vokyl Erupts (Maybe buy a used pair, don’t really know if these stand up to the rest)
- PC38x (Read a lot and they seemed to been hyped up and that others in this list are way better)
Let me know what you guys think, and if there is a pair I am totally missing, please feel free to recommend me it as well! Thanks!
