Need help making a decision with a new Headphone for gaming

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone,

 

So currently a local store is having a sale on beyerdynamic headphones. MMX 300 are 289.99, DT880 range from 240 to 300 depending on model, DT990s for 250 (600 ohm). I am currently using Logitech G930, and well I do like them, I game enough that I feel I would enjoy it as a whole with a better headphone. I have AKGs 271 but I find them just not for me. Testing out PC 363D right now but by the sounds of it for the price range I would be better off with something different. So if anyone has any opinions, thoughts, or could help out with this decision that would be great! 

 

EDIT: I am open to other suggestions as well!

Are you looking for something open or closed?

Honestly, I like them both. I find it hard to make a choice between the two. I have heard open is good for fps' and closed more of a cinematic experience. Would what you say?

As I understand it, open headphones are best for when you want to be immersed in a more private environment. In other words, they give the sensation that you're actually there, listening to the sound. Closed is better for when you want to isolate the noise from the outside world and keep the sound coming from your headphones in your ears.

I'd go for closed in a place where your surroundings may distract you, such as LAN events for gaming...or shared office environments. Now that being said, if your in a place where sound is not a distraction -- I'd rock the open cans. Just be aware that open headphones leak sound quite a bit.
