Looking for Ultrasone hfi-780 equivalent

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

The clamp and fatigue the 780s cause my head after extended use has become a bit tiresome, so I'm wondering if anyone has some suggestions for a pair of headphones with a similar sound quality but w/ more comfort. I'm using my 780s with a Soundblaster Z soundcard, not sure if that helps any with your recommendations. Thanks for any help :)

 

Edit* I don't know if this will help any, but my price range is preferably in the $150 range, give or take a few dollars. It will be primarily for gaming and mainly metal/electronic for music.

What do you do more, listen to music or play games? If it is games, just get an aurvana live. If it is music, the hfi-780s are tough to beat, but there are cans that clamp less (have a pro-2900)...like the ath-a700x.

It's hard to say what I do more, but it sometimes is about even. I'll listen to music for hours one day, then play games for hours the next. I guess I'd say I value the quality of sound for both activities :P

 

It'd probably have to be a closed headphone too now that I think more about it.
