Hello, I posted earlier about gaming headphones for college and think I narrowed it down to two choices. My budget is $100 right now.
Honestly I think the AD700s seem like a perfect choice. But I will have a roommate, so will the noise leak (moderate volume levels, no blasting) really be noticeable? My college is relatively small and not really a party school, so if anything I'm worried about bothering the roommate than anyone bothering me.
If open-eared headphones like the AD700 leak too much noise though, I will go for closed cans. The HD280 does seem like a great choice, as I read they are great for isolation. Has anyone tried them for gaming? I haven't been able to find a lot of information about this, because it seems most people prefer open-eared for better soundstage.
Also, I was checking out the Amazon page for the HD280s (linked above) and if you look there is a box under the words 'IN STOCK'. It seems to indicate that the silver version of the HD280s is a superior model, and if you click on it, the list date changes from 2001 (black), to 2006 (silver), and the price increases from $83 to $99. Does anyone know what is better about the silver model?
