I just want to say I love forums like this, community-led pools of knowledge are never un-welcome and it's rather admirable.
I've previously used this forum a fair bit for pre-buy tips and I find it to be great, however this time i'm at a loss and can't seem to find an answer to this question.
I'm on a tight budget at the moment and I need new headphones. I currently have a headset, but i'm tired of buying headsets and looking back retrospectively saying "I wish I bought headphones!"
Only this time, I don't have the same budget.
My problem is, I don't like the Muddy(?) sound which I often associate with cheap headphones (I could be wrong)
My budget is around £30GBP (around $50) and that's not likely to change anytime soon.
My current finds;
1) Audio Technica ATH-M20 -£29.99
2) AKG K77 - £25
3) Behringer HPS3000 - £22
(Going to get a clip-on mic as well, but I suppose they don't matter in terms of price...they all seem pretty cheap)
What do people think for gaming? I wouldn't know how to describe the sounds "needed" - punchy maybe? Also fairly clear, because there's nothing worse than playing any game (I play FPS mostly) and all you have is a huge mashup of sound in your ears and it just gives you a headache.
Am I asking too much for the budget I have? If so, the best for my budget?
Apologies if this is a repost of something previous, only I couldn't find anything that stayed within my cheap budget.
All advice appreciated
EDIT: I have an aftermarket soundcard which does indeed have a selectable amp up to ~64ohms
