The HD558/598 are very good for gaming, but they will require you to purchase a separate mic to use such as this

Who the heck buys directly from the headphone company?!  Without a single exception, I got each of my Grados and Alessandros new at below MSRP.  Only one or two or those came from Amazon or an Amazon third party seller.   

 

Who the heck buys at MSRP, unless forced to do so due by a MAP?!  Even better quality Senns can be found below MAP from time to time.

 

Canada has its own Amazon and there are countless more retailers, some of whom sponsor this site and from whom I've bought a number of the cans I mentioned earlier.

 

As for humor, you need to work on that a bit.  And perhaps be open to it yourself--like in the final paragraph of my last response to you.

Would this mic be okay? http://www.amazon.com/Zalman-Zm-Mic1-Sensitivity-Headphone-Microphone/dp/B00029MTMQ/ref=pd_bxgy_e_img_y. I wouldnt mind spending more like 50 or so.

That's the same mic that I linked to. I've seen that mic recommended here as an easy solution to turning headphones into a gaming headset, but do not have personal experience with it. Hopefully someone else can give you a better answer.

Sure--if your recommendation question(s) has not been answered.

Hi guys, Im stuck between these headphones- the m30 or harx700/900. I will be using these headphones on a flight, so I'd need the better headphone for isolation, great sound, and comfort.

Some music genres I listen to (Top being the genre I listen to most):

-Trance (Hard, Progressive, Melodic, Uplifting, etc.)
-Chillout music (Downtempo, Lounge, chill trance)
-Rap
-Rock

If you guys have any other suggestions, please let me know. My budget is $60.

Thanks!!

Hi i am currently in the process of looking for a new headphone to replace my ms1i as i couldnt use it for long hours due to its brightness, clamp force (i am wearing specs btw) and it is making me fatigue as i use them for 3 to 5 hrs daily (Gaming and music mostly). I am still new to the audiophile world so kindly forgive me for any mistake

 

I went to jaben-my to audition a few of the cans and i kinda liked the

HD 598 - everything was ok except for its detail which kinda lack its full body feel

ms2i - was smooth and excellent but it is almost as forward as my ms1i (i read somewhere that forward might also be the cause to my fatigueness)

he-300 - the unit was new and not properly driven yet so i couldnt judge it properly. It feels like ms2i but softer (maybe it is harder to drive)

 

cans that wasnt to my liking was the dt 880 250ohm, the treble is not my cup of tea. HD 650 was boring .... and the staff mention that i need an amp to actually bring colours and life to it. HD 600 is not available as it has been discontinued ~ i couldnt get much detail on he300 vs ms2i and hd 600

 

I am looking for any cans around $250-300 and would most probaly buy it from jaben although it will be much more exp compared to amazon but warranty is an issue to me.

 

Any suggestion on which would be the best choice for me?

I am new here. Is this the best place to post question about advice on new headphone?

Would be helpful to know what source(s) your plugging the headphones into?

Any DAC or headphone amplifier?

Perhaps pairing the MS2i with a tube or hybrid amp that could tame its treble a bit will meet your needs.

Hi, new to the forum here (hope I am posting in the right place). I currently have AKG K181s. Mainly got them for sound quality and bass, and in that sense they seem to work fine. I really like the bass boosters on the side to really help get extra bass out of my music. Unfortunately, comfort is not its strong point and the plastic is starting to crack. I often can't go for longer than an hour without my ears starting to hurt (maybe I have a big head?). This really sucks as I will often spend 5 straight hours at times modeling, rigging, or animating while listening to music.

 

So right now, I am looking into buying new headphones. Obviously comfort is one of the most important things, behind that is bass, and then I would also like to not spend more than $200, but closer to $150 would be nice :)

 

I have been looking at Sennheiser a lot lately, as a lot of people have been recommending them. The ones I have seen in my price range are the HD 558, 518, 449, 439, 429, and the HD 380 Pro. 

 

So I was wondering if anybody has any recommendations? Thanks in advance!

Hopefully you have some kind of headphone amplifier?
