I'm really liking these cans paired with my upgraded Xonar ST and they keep getting better as they burn in. Might just be a mental thing

Also a new case is cool for like a week and then you stop noticing it. A nice pair of cans has staying power ;o
The main reason for a new case is that im just using a bench right now (link to pics in my sig if interested), and i want to watercool eventually, and i dont have mounting points for an RX360 on it. I was thinking a titanium hd + FiiO E9, Xonar STX, or save up for some new cans in the $250+ range. My DX probably wouldnt do those justice though. Cases are just simpler

How is the bass and soundstage on the D2ks compared to the M50s?

Soundstage definetely feels more expansive on the Denons

Ah fair enough. I know some people like them for gaming if they want to mitigate noise leakage as well

Whoop! Sold my Pro700s and went for the AD700s! So comfy. The highs and mids are so crisp on these. Especially when paired with a Xonar DG. Directional sound is great too. It has sufficient bass (for me anyway) but if you lack it, EQ it.

One day you'll get a DSLR They are unique from other aspects of technology though where the equipment doesn't necessarily translate to a good product. Unlike headphones and PC parts, skill plays a much bigger role in how your final product turns out.

That said, one day you'll get a DSLR. You should look into used or refurbished ones; even the years-old Canon XSi is still a mighty fine camera.

If getting one for $300 was a possibility, theres no doubt that i'd start saving right now. But seeing as i could get some amazing cans, watercool my entire setup, or add more gpus for LESS money, it doesn't make sense to me. That said, is there any place i could get a used DSLR for around $300? I know the new Rebels start at like $530, so who knows? ( probably you )

Some of the older models go for $300-$350.
