So I’ve been lurking and scrolling through many of the similar threads and different forums… Think I may need some emotional support for my purchase
While taking games somewhat less seriously these days I still like to play ‘competitive’ at a high level/rank so hearing enemy positioning and footsteps in tactical fps games like Valorant is my main focus. I’ve used ad700/x’s since 2010 just want something that’s nice and ideally built well.
Here are the headphones I’m deciding between: (cost isn’t a factor just including AUD prices)
Beyerdynamic DT 1990 PRO - $709
Beyerdynamic DT 880 Edition 600Ω - $299 (how do they compare to 880 Pro 250Ω?)
Hifiman Sundara - $469
Sennheiser HD 560S / 58X / 6XX - $200 / $270 (didn’t look much into these tbh)
Considered TYGR’s but figured the 1990’s I’m leaning towards would be a better option especially on build quality however imaging/placing sounds is my priority and this video has made me consider that choice but it’s just one opinion… Quest for Best Competitive Gaming Audio Part Two - Sennheiser 560S vs DT 1990 Pro - YouTube
Any input on what to get would be appreciated, I know it’s a thread that comes up often and there isn’t a ‘best’ answer. I just need some help to pull the trigger.
Recently got a deal on a FiiO K5 Pro so that’ll be my dac/amp for now.
