Well,my Creative Fatality headset that was going strong for 3 years has finally died.I've been doing A LOT of research lately.Learned about closed/open headphones,the truth about ''gaming'' headsets and 5.1 surround sound and whatnot.Gotta say it's pretty interesting learning all of these things.It seems that for gaming a nice pair of headphones and a clip on microphone are the way to go.I am getting the Zalman ZM mic because it seems to be suggested by a lot of people.After all my research I have come across a bunch of notable pair of headphones.Lots of names getting tossed around.Well I still haven't made up my mind yet.Now, I am going to list what my priorities are and what I am looking for in a pair of headphones.
-Comfort.I want to be able to wear a pair of headphones for a long time before I feel any sort of discomfort.
-Well obviously I want it to be okay for gaming since I want it to primarily replace my headset that just died.
-I also kind of want to be able to wear them outside, so I don't really want anything looking too ridiculous and be portable enough.
-I would prefer closed headphones.
-I listen to a little bit of everything though I primarily listen to dubstep,house,trance so a pair of headphones with nice bass would be nice.I don't want anything very overpowering though.
-My budget is around 50 or 60 dollars.I don't want to go out and spend too much money on headphones right now.
The headphones that I've been looking at are the Sennheiser Hd 201/202/203, JVC HA-RX700, Superlux HD 681/668B and a bunch of other names that have been tossed around but I don't remember them.
The sennheisers all look nice but,they don't look to be very comfortable.Especially the 202/203. The JVC HA-RX700 is very recommended...but they look really big and I don't think I could carry them around.The Superlux look nice and comfortable but they are semi-open so I'm kind of on the fence on those....
Well if you're read through all my text,thank you and any advice would be appreciated.Oh and I am buying from Canada so if you link me any sites please make sure that they deliver to Canada.
