Closed headset for gaming and music

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hi I am currently looking for a durable closed headset preferably with a straight cable and circumaural ears.  I wish to use them for gaming, metal and some techno music.  So far I have found the beyerdynamic dt250 and shure 840 models.  Any suggestions?

Maybe you should take some Ultrasone models into consideration, from the Ultrasone Pro 550 to 750 to 900. Closed with bass and sound stage.

How durable are the ultrasounds?  Ive read that there plastic is not too strong and the ear pads can be a little underpadded.  My last headset was the world of warcraft wirless headset and the left ear cup snapped off in 4 weeks, such a cheap piece of plastic that cost over 200 Australian dollars..  Not happy :(

I dunno I've never used one, but they can't be that bad. I was seriously considering them but I settled for some open headphones that cost less.

Yeah I would go open but my partner is usually studying in the same room so I need something where the sound does not leak too bad:P

D2000 is exactly what you're looking for, except it isn't very durable for portable use. If strictly used at home though, it'll be fine. I dropped mine quite a few times.

Ultrasone headphones are EXTREMELY durable. They're plastic, but they're built like a tank.

Bought some cheap sennheiser 280 pros from jbhifi misslabeled at 99 instead of 199.  They will do until I have the cash to buy some Ultrasones.  Looking at getting the dj1 for sure if not a higher model

Everyone at Headphonic loves the DT250 - if you've got the cash I'd recommend checking them out. I'd recommend the Ultrasone Pro 750's from personal experience though; excellent for gaming (awesome detail retrieval and sound stage for positional audio in footsteps) and excellent for music (particularly electronica).

 

I prefer the Pro 750's over AD700's for both gaming and music.
