Gaming or traditional headphones

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey again guys !

 

Now that i got some experience in pro gaming scene ,

i think i need some new cans..after a lot of research (HUGE) i am now able to understand that gaming headphones are just gimmicks and not worth the price

 

Now that i've got some cash to spend on these are my choices

 

1] Steelseries Siberia v2

    I know its marketed as gaming headset..but some people say they prefer it over hd 515

    the +point is the retractable mic....this headset is on my budget side if i decided to save

    some cash.

 

2] Audio technica AD700

    By far the best sounding headPHONES for gaming as per 99% reviews

    But the pics of their cushioning (i dont know what u guys call it) do they cover whole

    ear ? their cushions looks more like on ear.

    -point No mic , open design

 

3] Sennheiser PC 350

    One of the best rivals of AD700 , some say its legend in headsets

    reviews says that you dont need to get a PC 360 if you have this

    +point Mic, closed design , foldable , uses same driver as HD 595

 

4] Sennheiser HD 380 pro

    I have never heard of them used as gaming headphones , but my eyes were on

    them from a long time...they sound good as per reviews

    +point foldable , Carry case 

     -point no mic

 

I am no audiophile and i have no soundcard installed nor do i posses an Amp

my last question is will i really need an Amp and Sound Card to take advantage of

these headphones (except Siberia v2) ...my main games would be Counter strike 1.6

and Counter strike global offensive

 

I know 5.1 and 7.1 are kind of gimmicky

I am ready to use a "Headphone" and a "Clip on mic" ...if you have any other suggestions except these headphones

I recommend using CMSS-3D for CS:GO which means getting a soundcard like the X-Fi Titanium PCIexpress. Can't get more accurate.
