headset/phones for gaming

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 

At the moment i am teribly confused and dont know what to chouse for gaming. For for now i am looking for corsair vengeance 1500v2 but i dont know if that is best chouse.

So i have criteries

I need headset/phones with usb or analog with sound card but my budget is limited around max 100 euro (i live in Europe/Latvia) many product what are available in USA not here and many are at better price than in USA. I need usb or analog with sound card because i have problems with my via vt2021 on board sound chip on gigabyte z77x-d3h mobo. Prices is possible to check in http://www.salidzini.lv/ yes sadly it is only in russian and in my native language but you can see prices and names are internationaly same:) just write in bar meklēt but i dont ask for you to go check there prices :) but in fact all prices is with tax and i want 100 euro with including tax.

Mostly i will use headphones/headset for gaming, youtube and some times music films but not and high quality samples. I want suround sound of course for that price i cant offer real suround and if it is even worth it.

Thanks for halp already i just dont know what to take and choise is to huge out there that not video card or cpu.

Corsair Vengeance 1500 comes with its own sound card and surround functionality.

 

While Corsair Vengeance 1500 is among the best Gimmicky headsets, I do not recommend it. 

 

 

You can build your own headset OR you can buy audiophile grade headsets

 

(Option one) : Audiophile Grade Headsets : 

 

http://en-de.sennheiser.com/gaming-headsets

 

http://www.audio-technica.com/cgi-bin/product_search/headphones/headphones_cat.pl?select_multiple_3=Gaming%20Headsets

 

https://north-america.beyerdynamic.com/shop/hah/headphones-and-headsets/gaming.html

 

Of course these Audiophile grade headsets dont come with their own sound card so you need to buy a sound card if you want surround and if you already dont have a surround card...for PC i recommend Asus Xonar U3 if you have a laptop.

 

(Option two) Buy an audiophile Headphone and attach the modmic to it. You can also use V-Moda's BoomPro if the headphone is compatible with it)

 

Good Gaming Headphones:

 

HD598 ( detachable but not compatible with V-MODA's Boompro)

AD700x

DT 990

Fidelio X-1 ( you can use the V-MODA's boompro mic with this one since the cable on this is detachable and compatible)

 

modmic : http://www.modmic.com/collections/frontpage/products/modmic-3-0

 

again, these Audiophile grade headphones dont come with their own sound card so you need to buy a sound card if you want surround and if you already dont have a surround card...for PC i recommend Asus Xonar U3 if you have a laptop.

The Asus Xonar DG sound is very decent for the price.

 

The website lists Takstar headphones, which are really good headphones, for their price.

The Takstar Pro 80 will offer the best sound quality, the TS-671 best surround sound, the Hi2050 would be somewhere in between.

I would say to get the Pro 80.

Asus xonar dg or dx with superlux hd681 or somic mh463 perhaps

Well, If you want a cheap solution, I recommend KOSS ksc75 or Creative Aurvana Live 2...

 

Samson sr850 is also a cheap solution

post #8 of 30

the KOSS is amazingly cheap and amazingly comfortable and good sounding. dont think that because it is only 20 bucks then it is not a good headphone, It is a killer.

Thanks for info but about koss ksc75 i dont know there 2 modes or what but in my country that not closed headphones and not in trustwordy internet shops, Creative Aurvana Live 2 is already over 110 euro and Samson sr850 just now available.

About sound card i think to pick asus xonar dgx (because i dont have really free pci slot but have free pci e x1)

What good and negative can say about Takstar Pro 80 what recomended PurpleAngel?

I would think if Sony put their name on the Takstar Pro 80s they could sell for $120-$150.

If and when you install a sound card into your Windows PC, remember to disable the motherboard's on-board audio, in the BIOS

 

Unified Xonar Drivers, seem to work better then the Asus Drivers.

post #12 of 30

check this article : http://www.head-fi.org/a/headphone-buying-guide

 

this is the cheap section

 

Open Headphones
 
(1) Koss KSC75, $10-$20. Mid-bass heavy, sub-bass roll-off and sparkly highs. *These are clip-ons*.
(1-B) Sony MA-300, $30. Warm, bassy, good soundstage, decent comfort. 
(1) Superlux HD681 Evo, $30-$40. Leans bright without sacrificing mids or lows. Great price ratio. 
(2) Samson SR850, $50. Neutral, slight emphasis on treble. Removable cable.
(1-B) Koss PortaPro, $30-$40. Strong but slightly muddy bass, recessed mids, slightly rolled off highs. 
 
Closed Headphones
 
(2) Monoprice 8323, $23. Removable cable, good portability, comfort, folds up for travel, and isolation. Good sound to price ratio, good balance. 
(1-B) JVC HAS400B, $24-$28. Very bassy and moddable though uncomfortable with stock pads. 
(1) Tascam TH-02, $30. Slightly cheapish build. Highly moddable. Clean, extended bass, slightly elevated top octave, but is a tad recessed from 2-5kHz . No amp needed, but sounds different from high-impedance outputs.
(1) Panasonic RP-HTF600-S, $30-$45. Deep punchy lows with a good soundstage. Durability is a concern.
(1-B) Philips Downtown, $30-$40. Isolate well, great bass quality and quantity, refined for the sound. On-ear.
(1) JVC HARX700, $30-$40. "A poor mans A700." Thumpy/muddy bass, decent mids, decent highs.
(2) Koss PRODJ 100, $40-60. Solid build quality, coiled cable, and folds for portability. Natural, clean, sound.
(1) JVC HARX900, $55-$100. "A poor mans A900." Decent soundstage. Tight/deep bass, recessed mids, bright/fatiguing highs. 
(1) Sony MDR-V6/7506, $60-$90. Folds for portability. Clear sound with a rather flat response.

I own 20 headphones, I really doubt you will find anything better then the Pro 80s, with in your budget.

But it's always good to get all the suggestions you can.

There are tons of good suggestions in this thread. Not sure I'd recommend CAL 2, though
