My current setup is K712 Pro + AD700 with SB X7. I use K712 for everything other than competitive FPS.
I used to play CoD:Promod on competitive level and for that AD700 was absolutely beast. Now, I play Warzone and TDMs mostly and for that I still prefer AD700 over K712. I used to prefer SBX and CMSS-3D but now I generally use Redscape for VSS.
Right now I’m looking for something which would be a discernible upgrade to AD700, purely for competitive gaming, within $500-800.
I have followed the excellent guide by @Falenkor and Mad Lust Envy. From that, I have narrowed down the following Headphones: DT 1990, Ananda, T1.2, Shure 1840, Focal Elex. (Elex is sort of out my consideration because I need to import it.)
Which one of these can be a true upgrade for competitive gaming over AD700? I am only concerned about their performance in competitive FPS as I am pretty happy wth K712 for everything else.
Or is it that upgrading to a better DAC/AMP would be better purely for FPS gaming?
