I’ve been using the Sennheiser Game One headset (direct into mobo) for a while now, but I’m looking for an upgrade specifically for warzone. For the uninitiated, audio in this game is hard to figure out. For the curious I’ve settled on Home Theatre at around 25 master volume for the Game Ones as that seems to give me the best results.
I’m asking if anyone here has had experience with the Game Ones and other headphones that they found to be worthy for upgrade(s) in terms of competitive fps. I have a condenser mic so I don’t require a mic solution. I’m willing to get a separate dac/amp or stack. Pretty open to all suggestions.
If hearing my opinions on the headset helps in making recommendations: Imaging on the Game Ones is good, but admittedly I don’t really have much else to compare it to as these are the only decent headphones I’ve ever had. I suspect that this isn’t the elite level of imaging I might want, as it seems to be less accurate the further the target is from me and it doesn’t seem to have any verticality to it.
I want to say that to me the soundstage seems intimate for an open back, but again, I don’t have much to compare it to (I think that technically these are only semi-open). Other than it doesn’t feel much more “open” than my samsung galaxy buds or airpods pro that I use to listen to music on my phone.
