Recommendations on Headphones for PC Gaming

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey guys I'm new here have been reading the forums for a while though. Now I know you guys have probably seen this thread a thousand times, but I was curious if anything opinions have changed or new recommendations would be given to me thus another thread. I would like to know what headphones all of you would recommend for PC gaming. I use them mostly for competitive FPS games such as Counter Strike and TF2. The criteria i would like the headphones to meet would be.

-Under $100 preferably between $50 to $75

-I have a bigger head I am looking for something comfortable to wear for longer periods of time I'm not a big fan of on ear

-They need to be closed back as well I can't have the sound leaking from semi open or open headphone design. I have AKG k240's that leak to much noise for gaming.

Here are some of the ones I've been looking at under $100. Let me know if I should add some new ones to my list or remove others.

I would also be interested if anyone has an opinion on any quality mics to go with the headphones for gaming. The headset I have now just does not sound as good or is no where near as comfortable as I would want it to be. The mics I have tried in the past usually picked up too much background noise in-game mostly from my pc or AC when in the summer. I also tried the Zalman clip on mic that just was too quiet to use and when boosted sounds awful. So if anyone has an opinion on some let me know. Thanks for your responses.

Do you use an add-on sound card or on-board audio?

What is the make and model of the motherboard?

 

Gemini HSR-1000 (Takstar Pro 80) closed headphones, $50-$60.

I use on-board currently, but will probably upgrade to a sound card when I rebuild my pc next year. The model of my current mobo is a Gigabyte GA-880GA-UD3. Thanks for the recommendation.

 

I regards to mic I was wondering what anyone thinks of the AntLion ModMic or the VModa Boom Pro for headphones that have a 3.5mm input detachable cable, or any headphones with a decent detachable 3.5.
