Hello everyone, I'm looking to sell my Logitech G633's in favor of something with better sounding audio and a more crispier microphone for music and gaming. I've already decided on getting the Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro (but if there any other better options feel free to suggest) for £103. I'm looking for an AMP/DAC and an attachable microphone. Please leave any suggestions.

I haven't heard any of the Beyer line but mostly you hear about ear shattering highs associated with the DT 990. I'd think the DT 770 would be better for EDM. The Philips Fidelio X2 or the Sony MDR 1A are also great for bassy music. Neither of those require an amp although like any good headphones they would benefit from one.

The Objective 2 is sold in Europe through here.

I forgot to add that I live in Europe, so American brands will be hard to come by. Also, what are the advantages of having mic support? Couldn't I just use it by itself?

From the way it was worded I thought you wanted mic support. And I saw the pound sign. ;) Sennheiser is German and worldwide and Mayflower ships worldwide.

Fiio E10K, Q1 or Q1 Mk II. You really could get a soundcard with a headphone amp and it would have virtual surround for gaming. The Schiit Fulla 2 although I'm not sure about their international shipping. Little higher end gets you a Schiit stack ( Magni 3, Modi 2 ) or an O2 / ODAC that will handle just about any headphones.

Unfortunately "Schiit" or "O2" isn't on Amazon. I'll go with the Fiio E10k instead. Anyways, would the DT990 Pro be the best headphones for gaming and music under £200 on Amazon.co.uk? I mainly listen to EDM.
