Hey guys, I ended up here on my search for a couple headphones that meet my requirements, and I would be grateful to any help you guys could give me.
The things I want are:
-Comfort (a must, for gaming sessions from 2 hours to 6 hours at a time)
-Long lasting (I don't want to have to buy a pair of headphones for another year at least)
-Good sound quality (I'm not really intense into music, but I do like to have an enjoyable listening experience.. I also do not know anything about sound to be honest, so I'm really nooby about anything sound related, especially any terms you might use)
My past experiences have always been headsets, and I'm looking into just buying a standalone mic to get a better quality pair of headphones, which I feel is definitely worth it. I've been using Razer Carcharias for about two years now, and they've been pretty good to me for the most part, but a couple days ago the cord got tangled up in my chair and when I needed to get up really fast, I hit my chair and it pulled the cord very tightly (not the first time it has happened) and it ended up making it so the left side of my headphones stopped working, which as you can imagine is pretty frustrating. Before that, I just went out to Wal-Mart and got a $15 headset every 6 months.
Some of the headphones I have been looking at are the Audio Technica ATH-M50, and the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro. Could you guys give me any other recommendations or opinions on these two? I am willing to pay up to $300 to get a pair of long lasting, quality headphones.
