Just built my custom computer a week ago.
I salvaged an my Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1(USB) from my old computer.
Prior to this, i was using a cheap unbranded headphone. They are uncomfortable though but i didn't find any problems with the sound output.
Its time to upgrade since i broke the cheap unbranded headphone. I was looking around and found that the MDR-XB500 is well within my budget. Well to be honest, more than what I am willing to spend, but it won me with it being comfortable. I read quite a few reviews and every review emphasize on its comfort. This is quite rare when compared to other headphones of its price range. This is of course based on my own research so i could've missed something.
Anyways, this headphones would be worn throughout the day (Not everyday though, 2 - 3 times a week) while gaming and watching movies. Is this headphone adequate for this task or could i get better ones that are within the price range of the MDR-XB500?
P/s: I am residing in Malaysia and the MDR-XB500 costs an average of USD90. https://www.sonystyle.com.my/ProductListing/IndividualProductDetails.aspx?pmodel=MDR-XB500
