I am looking to buy some new headphones for myself and I came to this forum for some personal advice on which I should choose. Let me begin by saying that I've done my research and narrowed my selections down. My max price is about $150 (Preferably $130 and under).
I game a lot, but I also am often on Youtube listening to music, so I want a good balance between highs, mids, and lows. Also, I voice chat a lot with friends. What do you think of these: http://www.modmic.com/ It's an attachable mic and has good reviews on multiple websites. I've heard that gaming headsets with built in mics are generally not as good for the price as an audio headset. Feel free to provide your own input
These are in NO specific order.
Sennheiser PC 330 GAME Headset - Links below
SteelSeries Siberia V2 Full-Size Gaming Headset
Both Option 1 and 2 have built in Mics. I've heard that headsets with built in mics usually mean that the actual audio is not as good quality, but these both have great reviews.
Sennheiser HD-280 PRO Headphones
Audio Technica ATH-AD700
Audio Technica ATH-A700X
Are there any other headphones you guys recommend? Also, if it's not a headset with a built in mic, I would like a microphone to talk on skype, etc.
Is this mic noteworthy? http://www.amazon.com/Zalman-Zm-Mic1-Sensitivity-Headphone-Microphone/dp/B00029MTMQ
Or this one? http://www.modmic.com/
