Hey guys, new to this so im not sure if this will work haha!
Im a gamer, moved from console around 7 months ago to PC. I play alot games, mainly being FPS shooters like call of duty, escape from tarkov and the like.
I purchased some DT990 pro 250ohm, with the Fiio E10k, as this was a budget kind of setup to get into 'decent audio quality'. These seemed fine on escape from tarkov as the audio on there isnt perfect. I went back to call of duty today and realised that the audio on this setup, compared to my old setup of some 8 year old Steel series with an astro mix amp was no way near as good. Footsteps were quiet, and unclear, if turned up to be able to hear the footsteps the highs would almost deafen me (also on tarkov).
So i did some digging around and settled on some HD660s as apparently the audio quality is very good along with the sound imaging, which it is. Very good. However, ive now been researching a better amp / dac than the e10k as a few people have told me its pretty terrible compared to alot of others.
So after that long winded, and pretty pointless story thatll probably bore people before they even read this, im after the best dac / amp combo, paired with 660s that'll help with the foot steps, the reloads, the normal gamer needs, but also sound good for music and the like. After a bit of looking the soundblaster and the topping DX3 seem to pop up alot, but ive not seen anything to do with Gaming, 660s and dac/amp! if anyone could help me out from experience, that would be more than great.
Thanks for your time!
