I am currently looking at some new headphones for gaming and I was looking for some recommendations. The ones I have reading reviews on are the AD900x, DT990/770/880 pro 250 ohm, Q701, Sony MDR-V6, and Philips x2. The headphones will also be used for things like music and movies. The type of music I listen to is Electric swing, rap, hip-hop, pop, and alternative. the headphones will be used for comp games like, CS:GO, Squad, insurgency, and for casual gaming Subnautica, Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, The Long Dark, torchlight 2, and stardew valley (I have no idea if listing this helps) . I understand for headphones that have a high Impedance I will more than likely need a amplifier to get the most out of the headphones and I am willing to buy one a little down the road. Would you recommend that I get a dedicated sound card like the Sound Blaster Zx or an amp and a dac like the Schiit.. If you have any recommendations for any other headphones you recommend that I should look at please make sure that it's nothing over $300. also I live in the middle of nowhere so I can't go and test out any of the headphones I have listed since their is no place for me test them out so thats out of the question. With regards to the mic I am going to buy a desktop mic a little later after I buy the headset.
