headphones for gaming & music

Under £70

Has to have good sound quality and a decent mic.

A bit above, but the AD700 w/ Zalman clip-on mic.

Probably the best. Most headsets aren't well respected here.

Why headsets are not respected?
What Zalman Mic is that? I can't find any Zalman mics on U.K sites.

Thanks

Amazon works in the UK, but if he buys anything from Amazon.com, it'll ship overseas, which is expensive (I've bought a couple items in the US from Amazon.co.uk)

Here's the AD700 from Amazon.co.uk:
Audio Technica Headphones ATH-AD700: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo

I couldn't find the Zalman mic on Amazon.co.uk though.

£113 - ouch. Is there anything worth getting that's under £70? And an alternative mic?

Thank you

hmm you could probably get a used pair of AD700's in the for sale/trade forums. I'm not sure if Amazon.com will ship to the UK but that $91 is approximately £56 + postage which might work out about £70-75, hoping you don't pay customs.

Other options would be Sennheiser HD555's they are not bad at all for a start.
I forgot to mention the Goldring DR150 they are cheaper than the sennheiser hd555's to which they've been compared with, some prefer the goldring DR150. They are cheap about £40

Like the AD700 they all require mic's. They are lower end audiophile headphones but people regard them a lot better for gaming then the so called "gaming headsets"

Goodluck

Ok thanks! Do any of you know of a good alternative to the Zalman mic? I can't find anywhere in the U.K that sells them, nor can I order one from Amazon.com (they just say it can't be shipped to this country - weird huh?)

Bought the AD700. Should be here tomorrow.

I'm using the onboard Realtek ALC 1200 on my Asus P5Q Pro motherboard at the moment; should I get a soundcard to go with my AD700? If so, which ? I have no idea.

Well, you could go the sports broadcaster route, and have a mic sitting on the desk in front of you. I did that for about a year, before I bought a headset.
