I have a schiit stack currently which I will upgrade later. I am looking for a good set up for music (orchestral, metal, alt rock, I tend to listen to a lot of female vocals), movies, and competitive fps games. I have okay headphones now but I'm finding I have multiple for different applications. I'd like to consolidate and upgrade.
So, thoughts on getting a HD6xx plus AD700x for music and gaming respectively.
HD 660s for both
Or Focal Elex. I'm thinking these would be my endgame? Perhaps saving money in the long run from trying to satisfy different applications.
I am a semi professional gamer (I make decent money playing but not my livelihood. I do not stream). It is important to me for positional, clarity, etc
I am not technically trained in critical listening but I do have some musical training in different instruments and I appreciate well mixed music. I love hearing things clearly and the subtle details. It makes me really happy.
I also do a lot of remote work (Enterprise IT) so I tend to use an open back for work meetings and stuff if possible. I have a closed back if not
Any recommendations or thoughts you could provide would be amazing. Thank you!
