Looking for really comfortable headphones for everyday gaming.

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 

Hello there,

so basically, I am looking for really, really comfortable headset for gaming (8+ hours day, even more sometimes). I have tried many, but after like an hour my ears get really sore and I have to take headphones out. Wouldn't on-ear headphones be better for me? My price range is not really ideal, about 60-70 euro.

 

Thanks

Surprised you havn't gotten wind of the Audio Technica AD700 yet.

AD700 / HD555

What about the V Moda Crossfire?

The problem with the AD700 is that it doesn't have a mic, maybe the games you play don't require it, but I used to do semi-professional gaming in tournaments and stuff, and a quality mic is a must. A cheap pair with a mic is Sennheiser PC 150.

 

Having said that, if you are looking for comfort above all, the AD700's are probably the very best in their price range.

To be honest, the games I play require mic confused_face.gif

Check out the Razer Carcharias.  They are quite comfortable.  If you could work with a free standing mic, the Sennheiser 595/555 are the most comfortable I've ever seen for long term wearing.  If you need a mic on the cans, go with the Carcharias.

Yeah, I know about the Razer Carcharias, but the reviews I read were not that good, but if they are really that comfy, I would go for them.

That's why you buy a mic to go with it, it's what everyone does.  ;)

Just get a clip-on or boom mic.  It's only going to run you another $3-15 depending on what you get.

Don't expect to have the AD700 quality with that Razers. Actually I find the AD700 more comfortable...but that's my personal opinion.

And maybe another 10 dollars after that for a mic adapter for your console if you play console (or 130 to go all-out with a mixamp)  A lot of those console-oriented gaming headsets (the more expensive ones) are just the cheaper headsets packaged with the dolby headphone processors (such as the mixamp).

Unfortunately, the AD700 is overpriced like hell in the country where I live (around 200 dollars), so thats the reason I can not get them.

Well..if so you can get some Creative Aurvana Live they are rebranded Denons but with worse quality plastic. You should find them for 80€ over the web.

Creative Aurvana Live are looking good to be honest, I could get them for about 50 euro, but do they have attachable mic or would I have to get a standalone one?
