Does someone knows with it goes with the gsx 1200 pro?
That's my current setup and I can confirm they're a decent pairing. The GSX 1200 doesn't get the HD 6XX's overly loud, so I just ordered the Aune X1S Anniversary Edition which I'm probably going to use for everything except gaming (GSX 1200 surround sound is really good), I'll have to wait until I get them to compare though. But if you prefer things almost excessively loud but don't intend on spending more money on another DAC/amp, I would suggest getting the $200 AKG K7XX's (62 ohms), or if you want to stick with Sennheiser you could go with the $150 HD 58X Jubilee's (150 ohms) as the GSX 1200's recommended impedance is 16 - 150 ohms.
Thank you... that was realy helpful
im using the headphones for gaming and music
and i want to know with there is any way to have a good Amp/DAC for music
and get the 7.1 for gaming and still sound well
for about 200$
Honestly I'm not sure hey. The GSX 1200 is really good for what it does and if you're set on keeping it but want a better pairing I would just go with one of the two I suggested. There's a lot of really good reviews for both, some people even prefer the HD 58X's over the HD 6XX's. If I don't like the pairing of the X1S and HD 6XX's for gaming I'll just continue to use the GSX 1200 for gaming and swap when I want to listen to music. I might even buy a pair of HD 58X's down the line just for gaming.
One last thing.
i bought the hd 6xx and i want to know with i can get dac/amp that can make the hd 6xx good for gaming(7.1) when supporting the 300 ohms ( or something close to 300ohms)
all of that 7.1 stuff you read about is nonsense, it's just marketing. there is no true 7.1 headphone, it's not possible.
what you want for gaming may be different from other people. most people like large and open sound-stages for gaming, so they go for open-back headphones like the 6xx. some people prefer a more closed sound-stage, so they go for closed-back. if you want a neutral sound signature that isn't in your face, the 6xx is good. if you want a headphone that is "energetic" and potentially louder do to how close the driver is to your ear, go for the 58x.
gaming headphones are just headphones that a company says it's for gaming. there is literally nothing special in ANY of those Astro's that you see besides the wireless gear and potentially active noise-cancelling technology. but neither of those have anything to do with sound quality coming from the headphone.
