Needing suggestions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I currently have these:



They hurt my ears after prolonged use. I am looking for around-the-ear headphones, They need to be balanced between all activities. I do a lot of gaming, watch a lot of HD movies, and listen to anything from classic rock, to jazz, to bass-heavy electronic and hip-hop.


My budget is $100 and I would prefer to shop on Amazon or Newegg. I could care less if the headphones have an attached mic. I already have a standalone mic that I barely use.


I have been considering the Razer Carcharias, the Steelseries Siberia V2, or the Sony XB700s. I have decided against the Creative Fatal1ty headsets after reading about durability issues.


From what I have read so far, I would also prefer 50mm drivers.


I'm hoping to get some good suggestions from this forum.
