I am currently looking for headphones... I play pc games and love listening to music at a fairly high quality.
I do have a pair of headphones that i use for both right now, however these headphones are made for console gaming (turtle beach ear force x11's) and they are 2 years old, i am looking for an upgrade. I realize that most gaming headphones do not have good quality for music, therefore my dilemma since i am looking for both.
Before anybody starts asking, ill list all the things you need to know; I am looking for a gaming headset, and i am looking for headphones for music, or both in one. My spending limit is about $300, any amplifiers or soundcards i may need are not included in that price. I listen to 70% rock and 30% other, being hip hop, pop, and dubstep. Now before people start recommending the rock oriented headphones, that's not what i want. I would like a headphone that can play both equally well, however if that is difficult somehow, then i would prefer the rock oriented headphones over the other.
Again, before you start to ask a question about my limit, i have a pair of gaming headphones in mind that i will most likely buy for gaming only, leaving me to buy a pair of headphones for music listening. The gaming headphones i have in mind are about $80 leaving me with about $250 to spend on a music related headphones, but that's not exactly what i am looking to do. If there is a set of gaming headphones that play music well with a good gaming experience too, then that would obviously be ideal for me since i am looking for both.
I have done some research on headphones, i have read the recommendations thread, and i felt i would receive a better answer to my dilemma here. Thank you
