I'm looking for a nice budget set of phones for around $50. I'm looking for ones that would be good for gaming mostly rpg's and single player games. And my taste in music is mostly rock, classical, and orchestra's. I would like something with a nice sound stage without a ton of bass im not really a bass nut some is ok but if its too much I start getting annoyed with it. And on the opposite side I don't want a lot of treble either.
Sadly I don't live anywhere close to somewhere that i could try out any headphones closest place would be about 2 hours away. And as i dont have a car its almost impossible to get there XD
Sorry i don't really know how to describe what im wanting well im a complete noob when it comes to this stuff. The headphones i've been seeing everyone recommend are
Panasonic htf600 (I have heard these can be quite bass heavy so i dont know how much I would like them)
superlux 668b/samson sr850
As you can tell I am looking for mostly over ear headphones so i would like that.
I think the 668Bs are an excellent fit for your needs, as long as you can find them in your price range.
By all accounts, Macbooks have pretty good audio hardware, so you might be better off putting the money towards an upgrade of your headphones.
I think you can find detailed info on that in ljokerl's portables thread, as I think he's reviewed both. Off the top of my head, the P5s isolate superbly, even though they're supra-aural.
