Hey guys, not sure if this is the right place to be posting this thread, it’s still related to gaming.. right? If this isn’t, I apologise to the mods!!

Anyways, I’m in need of a new headphones after my previous gaming headset broke (Razer sucks) and I’ve been looking to get some as of recently. I do play quite a lot of FPS games that require good sound imaging, so like hearing footsteps.

Ive been seeing that people are saying surround sound is BS and gaming headsets are overpriced. Should I invest in some good studio headphones with an AMP/DAC, anything that anyone recommend?

Any gaming headsets that are well worth the money?

Headphones you surely can't go wrong with Beyerdynamic. 

DT 770 PRO (closed)
DT 880 PRO (half open)
DT 990 PRO (open)

The 770 imo is as good as it gets in a closed back for gaming without moving up to a crazy budget. best allrounder for gaming, music etc. pp

Ah! I have been looking into these and I have heard they’re pretty good. As they’re studio headphones, they have a higher impedance than regular headphones right?

Do you think it’s completely necessary to buy an amp/dac or would I be able to plug and play without needing one?

There are different Ohm versions. 25, 80, 250 i think.

There is no official suggestion what to buy. But its basically 25 Ohm for a Smart phone, 80 is the allrounder, and 250 for the more advanced stuff with audio amplifiers.

Definitely Studio ones! Im making music but still a big gamer too so I tried to play a few FPS games with these studio ones and its perfect. Never again buying some shitty gaming ones lol. Prices of them are too big too. You can get awesome studio headphones for price of a low budget gaming headset bro
