I'm looking for some cans for gaming, music and some movies (though quite a bit of youtube, other streaming sites etc). My budget is around £60 but can go up an extra tenner if needed. I don't currently have a sound card (using onboard on a P8P67 PRO), but I'll probably be getting one after I've gotten a pair of nice cans so within the next 2 months. I mostly listen to hip hop/rap/metal but also some stuff from a lot of different genres. I play some shooters, Fallout/Mass Effect style RPGs, portal puzzle type games etc. I'm not sure what type I would want, I've already got in-ears for non-computer use. The open ones should be ok as long as they're not audible from 10+ metres, or in nearby rooms. I've been recommended the following:
Sony MDR-XB700 - I've been told they've got a lot more bass than the 500s but it reacts well to EQ and it shouldn't be a problem (can anyone back that up?)
Corsair Vengeance 1500 - Added benefit of not needing a sound card at a later date + a microphone, but how well does it stand up for non-gaming use? Also won't work with my 360, but I don't use it much so it's not much of a bother
Creative Aurvana Live!
Does anyone have any recommendations? I've been liking the XB700s as they appear comfy (with my current ones I get annoyed after having them on for close to two hours, might be because they're **** though), but the bass isn't too overpowering if I mess with the equalizer is it? The corsair's mic isn't needed that much as I can buy a clip on one. I have no idea about the last one. Or if you have any others to recommend for about £60. Thanks.
