What to get next for computer listening and gaming?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I just had my pair of Ultrasone HFI 580's go out in one ear after 7-8 months of use and was wondering what would be a good comparable upgrade or replacement to those? Ive been seeing stuff about dt 770's and xb 500's and was wondering if those would be good as well as the audio technica ad700's and ath m50 along with akg k701's. Which of these would be best for gaming and computer music and video listening as well as having good bass and soundstage. Are there any other suggestions that you might have as well? I really dont want to spend more than 200 for a pair but would go as far up as 350.

Heya,

 

The Beyer DT990 PRO would be a good choice and is under your budget. Open air, good sound stage, plenty of bass, comfortable. An alternative could be the Philips Fidelio X1 at a higher cost with similar attributes.

 

Very best,

AKG Q701 headphones, used around $185.

(I've been thinking of ordering a Q701 later today)

 

Asus Xonar DG (PCI) sound card, $30 and there is a $10 mail in rebate this month.

You should check V-Moda LP2 and M100. These are bass head types and has a 3D sound stage, which is excellent for gaming.
