Good headphones for gaming and others?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey, I'm looking for a good pair of headphones for competitive gaming(mainly FPS), music and whatever I can do with them. My budget is around $200. I'm actually going to wait till Christmas, Black Friday and other holidays for the deals on Amazon. I prefer open headphones. I'm planning on getting the Audio Technica AT2020 Deluxe USB, so I'm going to plug in the headphones into the microphone because it has a dac. 

 

I was looking at these headphones.

Sennheiser HD 558

Sennheiser HD 518 

Sennheiser HD 598

 

Any suggestions? 

Thanks.

IMO it's just better value for money than anything else <$150 (barring the Grado SR80i, but I'm biased like that). You can mod it pretty easily to sound (or so I'm told) exactly like the HD598, which is a fantastic pair of headphones.

Don't you need decent amp to make them sound good(598s)?

Nah, just get a cheap sound card for the virtual surround and better sound quality. You'll be good I suppose.
