So, I am still a noob when it comes to buying High Quality headphones.  But, I have found that if you want to get good constructive advice here, you need to provide more details.

 

The only details that you have is that you want to replace a broken gaming headset for around $80 US.

 

Important details are missing from your post.

 

Are these strictly for gaming or will you be listening to music as well?

If you are listening to music, what genres will you be listening to?

Where will you be listening to these headphones?

Do you want an open design or closed design?

Do you need headphones or another headset with attached mic?

 

Provide details and you will probably get some constructive recommendations from more knowledgable members than me.

The one I use isn't 80

 

It's like £22

 

It's for general computer daily use.

 

I'm not asking for any high quality anything. As long as it's average quality and is listenable

 

It would be best if it's more isolating in a way of that people will not beable to hear what I am listening to because these, the sound escapes

 

I need another headset with or without mic.. Because I think this broken headphone's mic is still working I assume

 

But if so I think with mic might be more secure and safe

 

I will be listening to youtube vids, music and playing games with them

I bought my kids the Sennheiser HD 202 for Christmas last year.  They really like them.  They aren't audiophile headphones by any stretch of the imagination but they sound pretty good for the price and they have decent isolation and a ridiculously long cord.

 

The HD 202 II is the latest model and seems to be cheaper than the original.

The Gamecomm looks more like 48 pounds on amazon rather than 20, unless you're referring to them at a used price. For a similar price, you could get the Creative Aurvana Live! or an used AD700s, both very popular for gaming around here. Many of my non-head-fi friends swear by the CAL!s, they sound really nice for the price. A good starting point for anyone, without having to compromise on SQ.  They are closed, so they don't leak sound, but isolation from outside sound is average. For a mic, you can just get a clip mic, attach a modmic on them, or use a desktop mic.

I have a JVC HA-F1x1 and the edges stick out... So I might need good headphones which will be able to go over them without forcing the headphones through my ear and making it hurt ...

 

But I want more experience from what people use...
 

 

So either:

 

Sound isolating

Or closed? idk what the difference is

Non sound leaking as much as possible...

Panasonic RP-HTX7:

 

I don't know how deep the ears are in order to see whether if they will make them push my earphones into my hear.. which I don't want to happen

So you want a circumaural headphone, with large, deep cups that isolate well, under $40? The JVC HA-S700s seem like exactly that. The Audio-Technica M30s, JVC HARX700, Panasonic HFT600 could work as well (Although the latter does not isolate that well, they sound great!).

JVC HA-S700         

Audio-Technica M30      

JVC HARX700     

 

Which one would you recommend the best?

 

Are you sure these will fit over my JVC HA-FX1X earphones?

...Wait, why would you want to wear in-ears under a full-sized set? Unless you want to use them as earmuffs or something...then probably earmuffs would be cheaper than an actual pair of headphones.

No my headphones are breaking. I just want to know if those would fit over earphones for extra isolation

 

But i generally need them...

 

Are there gaming headphones which meets my requiements instead of headphones in general?

Ah, okay then. Most of my IEMs are isolating enough, so I never bother trying that. Seems like a good idea, I guess.

 

Gaming headphones (as in headsets) are usually quite poor in quality. I cringe whenever I go over to someone's house to play and are forced to use their crappy headsets. I hate to use blanket statements, but every single one of the gaming headsets I've heard pales in comparison to any regular headphone of a similar price, period. Not just in sound, but the headsets are usually shoddily made, isolate like crap, and generally a bad experience. I haven't heard the PC360s, people say they share similar drivers to the 5xx series? Way above your budget anyways.
