I just might.  The pro-style case it came with is the best container ever I've gotten for a set of headphones.  Not very portable but really cool.

No such thing as to many cans, it is just what they want you to think, it is rubbish, you can never have to many cans only to few..

Hey all,

 

I've been looking into these headphones for a while now and I think I'm gonna go with the HI2050. I will be mainly using these for gaming/csgo (90%) and a little bit of electronic music (10%). However, with looking into these budget but high quality headphones I have of course bumped in the Samson SR850 and Superlux 668B, which have made me doubt the HI2050. Searching through this thread there have only been a few comparisons and I was hoping to get some more clarity.

 

I will be using these with my laptop through a Xonar U3, which model would be best for fps gaming, in terms of positional accuracy/clarity and cues?

 

I think I can already cross the 668B off the list because I'm not sure the Xonar U3 be able to properly drive the 668B?

 

Any help is hugely appreciated!

668B is a great headphone for gaming while the HI2050s are too. The 668B doesn't need too much amping.

 

I'd say you go for the 2050s if you prefer velour pads and 688Bs if you can live with pleather pads.

 

Also the shape of the headphones are a factor. Which do you think is better for your headshape?

HAHA! No biggie. Have a look: http://www.novafm.com.au/

 

The logo has changed over the years but it still has stayed as the "Nova kid" (i think that's what they call him)

The Xonar U3 is rated for headphones up to 150-Ohms. so the 60-Ohm Hi2050 & 56-Ohm Superlux 668B should not be a problem.

Which is better for FPS gaming? have no idea.

To rebelinho: Yea, def read that whole guide (so helpful!) plus heaps of the comments especially regarding these headphones. Thanks heaps for the response.

To TheEndGame: I don't think I have a large head so I'm hoping I should be able to wear the hi2050 without getting a headache and you can get velour replacement ear pads for the 668B on ebay so that's not an issue. I'm not really sure whish headband style I'll like better but I guess the 668B is the safer option in case I really do have a big head haha. But from what I can understand from your post though, is that you prefer the sound of the 668B for fps gaming?

To PurpleAngel: Thanks for that insight, I didn't realize it had that much driving power. Awesome!


But yep that is the next question, which is better for fps gaming? I am assuming the SR850 isn't it cos it's been mostly ignored and so if I replace the ear pads with veluer and remove the sticker on the grill of the 668B, will the positional accuracy be better than that of the hi2050?

Cheers for the help!
