I've checked out Mad Lust's headphone guide but since he's using dolby, I don't think it's a reliable source. I don't really know anything about audio. I have an integrated sound card with my motherboard Gigabyte-Z77M-D3H, So i'm guessing it'll have to be Stereo output. The current headphones I use are from what I know very overpriced and **** for gaming... Solo HD Beats..
I simply want to know what headphones to get. I may be going to LAN's in the future, but i'm pretty sure I can just buy earmuffs and just put that on top of my headphones if the ones you reccomend aren't closed. I would like them to be over-ear because the headphones I have now are on-ear and it gets litterally painful after like 2 hours of wearing them (and I play for like 8+ hours sometimes) but comfort isnt really the priority since I kind of got used to having my ears hurt while I play.
Budget: $150 CANADIAN (This is important, if you give me a price from amazon.com, it may be like 3x the price on amazon.ca...)
Prefferably available at canadacomputers.com but it's alright if it isn't
Only headphones i've considered:
Creative Aurvana Live! ($130.99) - currently going for this
Skullcandy Slyr ($99.99)
Brainwavz HM5 ($143.04)
Audio-Technica ATH-AD700 ($149.99)
Koss KSC75 (A very different style. Clip-on. According to Mad Envy Lust's guide, they compare very well to ATH-AD700 and cost 130$ less.) (~$20)
Sennheiser PC300 (Also a very different style. IEM.) ($84.99)
