I've got My Build pretty much figured out -- except for the sound.
I need a few recommendations for a good headset/microphone setup for YouTubing/Twitch Streaming.
Budget: I won't spend $1000 on new audio equipment for something just starting out, but I'm not looking for pieces of tin foil either ;)
I do have a Behringer Xenyx mini mixer that was given to me by my music mentor.
I've been looking at the Sennheiser HD 598, but a lot of reviews say that it's not too strong on the bass side of things. I'd like a set of headphones that can reach a good rance. Don't mind if it's open back (it's my understanding that they're better/more comfortable for long periods of gaming, anyway). I have, however, read that getting a solid DAC/Amp will bring out the potential of the 598s, so maybe there's that too :')
Should I go for the sound card route, or since I have a mixer, go for the DAC/Amp route? With each option, please provide recommendations and your reasons. I'm not versed in terms like ohm and whatnot, but you can use things like "warm, heavy sound, etc."
I'd prefer the microphone to be XLR.
