errr, no… neutrality is nice and makes them fit in more places… but 990 and mmx are quite exceptional compared to most headphones for competitive… if you mean the treble is causing the issues or discomfort… switch over to tygr 300r. Maybe 58x jubilee if playing smaller fps… ad700x and akg k702 are good as well but AD has separation and comfort problems and k702 has imaging inaccuracies(shared with the others of the k7 series)
how are you basing this as your favorite from reading instead of listening to them… I am a bit confused here
I do have a general write up for this… while not updated, still works for recomendation listing… just ignore the gaming headsets on the list.
your fine with the 990 less your just looking for some kind of complimentative headphone… not sure what your trying to achieve with this one. At $200 the 990 is one of the best you can get for imaging and soundstage respectively, tygr 300r right next to it since it’s just a redone up variant of the 990 without all the treble and less of a bass issue.
in competitive gaming? they have too much bass and deplete your ability to hear footsteps not to mention being muddy and bleeding into the mids in certain cases. You will also lose soundstage and imaging with the 599, gain soundstage from the x2hr but lose even more imaging in comparison, and with both you lose the treble advantage and have bass in the way of your placements
