Comfort Priority - Which Headphones?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I am looking for full-sized headphones that are extremely comfortable for PC. I have bad experiences with headphones being too heavy and too clamping. I use them for gaming and listening to music. I do like some bass, but the bass does not have to be ridiculous. I play mainly RTS and MMO games; FPS is mainly a console thing for me. What can you guys recommend for me?

 

Another quick note, I do record gameplay and commentate. I am not sure if open headphones leak loud enough to get heard through my microphone or not. Just throwing that out their.

Sennheiser HD-598 are super comfortable and have no clamping force. They have a wide soundstage and I like to use them for gaming because of that. However, they are open-style headphones, meaning the volume you're listening at is the volume anybody else nearby will hear them at. Outside noise will leak in, too. I wouldn't call them bass-shy, but they do not emphasize bass, and coming from consumer brands that push the bass they may seem bass-light at first.

Two headphones I will definitely look into :). Still open for all other suggestions too; I would like to have as many options as possible :).

The HD 558 and HD 598 are pretty much the most comfortable headphones you can buy.

So, the HD 558 or 598 should not give me neck pain during long sessions? My Logitech G930's do.

their all plastic design makes them very light.

 

they are still well built though.

i have the Audio Technica ATH-M50s and they are about as good as the HD 558s but with more bass.

 

they are however much less comfortable.

I was more so looking at the Audio-Technica ATH-AD and ATH-A series.
