How about HD201? 8323>HD201? I game in a pretty loud environment and I want something a little more closed off.

What is your budget for the headphones? Of the two listed I've not heard the 201, but I may know of some in your range that are decent and closed other than the Monoprice.

I found the HD 201 sibilant and uncomfortable when I heard it personally.

i'm looking at max 35ish range. I don't want to spend so much because gaming is just a casual thing I do and I just want to be able to locate my opponents by his/her footsteps.

hmm. Well I guess the HD201's are out of the picture. I'm leaning towards the KSC75's but outside noise might be a problem.

MLE reviewed the SHP2500 on the first post. Might be able to find that in your price range. Could a semi open headphone work for you? The Superlux HD681 and HD681 EVO can both be had for that price.

The Superlux HD681 looks interesting. I could do with a semi-open. Would you choose hd681 > the ksc75?

If you need the added isolation to help block some outside noise, absolutely. The KSC75 doesn't block anything at all. They are the definition of open headphones.

I really can't control the noise around me but for the most part it is quiet/light talking. If directional audio is top priority over anything what should I choose?

Surround sound is sort of a necessity for competitive gaming and the AX720+ is the cheapest that has that.

 

Also you can use it not only with the PC but with almost any console.

 

PS4

Xbox one

PS3

Xbox 360

 

Another thing is that it lets you balance game/chat volume so you can get the perfect balance between the two, the other headsets you mentioned doesn't have that and I'm 100% sure your not going to like that for online gaming.....nobody does.

Two things, although it is nice that it works on a bunch of systems, it really isn't necessary. The Turtle Beaches I had turned into my PC headset when my other ones broke and now I have neither and probably wont go back and forth connecting to to both the consoles and PC. I just need PC mainly. The other problem is it's $30 over budget for me, which might not sound a lot, but as it is I'm not to happy paying $100 as it is.

Essence STX for $110 is a great value, better DAC and head amp then the Sound Blaster Z (& Zx).

and the STX's headphone output impedance is 10-Ohm, better then the Z or Zx's 22-Ohm impedance.

I have the STX, great card. Bought it a few weeks ago for $165, so $110 is a good deal.
