Hello. I currently have been using Astro a40 for 6 years, and I have been thinking about getting some real cans. I also want to add that I have AKG headphones that come with Samsung galaxy phones. I don’t know if these headphones are absolute trash or what, but I wanted to mention that I have a pair in possession if they are good. Honestly, I have been using them for gaming over my Astros. I plug the AKG headphones into the Astro mix amp. Anyway, I digress.
I really don’t know much about the audio game. I just started dabbling within the last week. I really want headphones strictly for gaming. I mostly play PUBG, but I don’t really want my decision to be restricted to just that. I keep reading the Sennheiser 660s are pretty good for gaming. Something tells me they are the right choice, but the price is kind of a turn off. If they are really worth it I’m okay with purchasing them, but I am open to suggestions for other options. Open vs. closed isn’t really too much of an issue either for me I guess. I would prefer closed to not bother others, say during the night, but I am willing to go with open for that extra advantage in game.
Next I need a Dac and amp right? Do I need both? Do I just get a combo? From my research, topping dx3 is a good combo option or the fiio k3. I watched the z review on the topping. That’s all I know. I don’t know anything about cables, or which type of cable to get versus another and so forth. Anyone willing to help I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks a bunch. I am open to all suggestions. I am kind of on a budget don’t hesitate to say whatever haha, but I am not buying $1000+ headphones. I greatly appreciate anyone who helps if anyone does. Thanks again
