Hi everyone! I have a high end system with X-Fi Titanium. Is my sound card enough to drive headphones in my price range? I might occasionally connect it to my phone during bus rides in company bus (i will have a seat) or car. I don't care about portability or if quality drops due to lack of amp in mobile. I don't mind if the sound leaks and or if it lacks noise isolation. But I would prefer it. I am planning to purchase headphones for the following in descending order of requirements, 1. Gaming with positional audio with CMSS Headphone. Mostly FPS with EAX and GTA4. 2. Metal music- Slayer, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin, and other genres like Dr Dre. 3. Videos on comp. 20% are HD with DTS 5.1 which my soundcard can simulate surround in headphone very well. ( I tested with HD280Pro and I am satisfied.) Please mention headphones I can find in Bangalore or else in hyderabad. I want them to be durable , so that it doesn't become useless in less than 2 years. I have HD595 in mind. I don't know whether they are good for metal. The previous headphone I used to borrow from my friend was HD280 Pro from senn and they were terrible for metal and even worse for gaming and so I am skeptical about senn. I read in foreign forums about Grado, but I doubt its availability and price in India. My price range is not rigid. If there is some headphone which is damn awesome but is 16k, do tell me.
