If I was getting headphones for only gaming, it would have to be the Audio Technica Ath AD-700

I've owned the SRH440 in the past, I would say that they are quite nice for your needs and are better than any on your list.

Oh thanks for your help, and in regard to comfort, you recommend me the SRH440 or not?

 

I will try to find the ATH-AD700, although I do not like the colors, I prefer all black just like ATH-AD500 by the way, such are those?

SRH440 is pretty comfortable, but you have to get used to it.

Thanks, I just found the SRH840, worth paying more for them and are more comfortable?

I have never tried the SRH840 only the SRH940, but the comfort is the same through all the series, except the new ones that were just released (SRh1840, etc). To tell you the truth, I wouldn't game with my SRH940 because the pads really start to make my ear itchy, plus the headband by Shure is a misery since it cramps on your head so much. Can you find Beyerdynamic headphones anywhere around your location?

Not, unfortunately I can't get headphones of these brand here.

The most important thing for me in gaming headphones would definitely be comfort (for the time you play all-nighters), and imaging. I haven't heard or used any of the headphones on your list (except for the Shure) but I think you should look for those qualities I mentioned when trying them out or researching them.

For me the comfort is so important too. The ATH-AD700 are comfortable? I found a website with this item in stock, will arrive around on 20 days from Amazon.

I tried them at a store once and they are comfortable (but the Sennheisers in your list offer more in this category) and the sound quality is good, I think perfect for gaming and movies. They also look nice, if you care about that haha.

Then, you recommend me the HD 515? 

post #15 of 39

The SQ of ATH-AD700 will edge out on the 515s. The better choice from HD515 would be HD555 which is about 150$, but I understand with shipping its going to cost you. I would take the ATH-AD700, if they won't be comfortable in the beginning you will adjust to it and it will pay off in the long run with games.
