I'm considering purchasing a pair of HD600's to use with my Schiit Modi/Asgard 2. I have a pair of Beyerdynamic DT990 600 ohm variant headphones that are just killer. Although they were pretty lackluster on my previous amp (Magni).
I really don't feel a NEED to buy anymore pairs of headphones, but I like to try new things. I've been surprised in the past too. Gotta love that "everything went better than expected" feeling. I had been looking at AKG Q701 and K712 Pro's as well, but I don't think I'm all too interested in the AKG's at the current price. I wish I got in on the Q701's @ $150! Maybe next time.
As for the HD600, I'm approaching them like the car you wished you had at a younger age I guess. I've read so much about them and they're compared to a ton of headphones all of the time still today. I see the value in them and the fact these are closer to the older $220 going rate is more appealing. I would never consider them otherwise. I'll probably buy them last day of the drop in some impulsive panic.
Would anyone recommend them not to compete with my current DT990 600 or replace them, but rather to take advantage of their own strengths? If you've owned both, which do you prefer for specific usages? Last question would be specific to just csgo. Which do you think would be better from a competitive standpoint on a game such as csgo? Differences in the soundstage and bass could theoretically make a big difference (at least in my head).
I appreciate any and all replies in advance. I may take a while to reply. TY!
