hello head - fi!! I am very new here so forgive me if I wont understand much. and forgive me for not speaking English fluently( not my 1st language :( )
I am looking for headphones that is good for gaming and music. I used to have the turtle beach DX11 but the headset broke ( I still have the dss though) and am now looking for headphones that's good for gaming and music ! price range preferably around 100-200$ but would stretch to 250$ if its very worth it. I listen to hiphop , pop , RNB and a bit of rock music. mic is optional( preferably no mic since I already have one separately) . I have a working turtle beach DSS if it matters and I would rather not buy an amplifier or a new sound card for my PC if possible(see, im not that very techie and would rather not tamper with my PC's stuff and would rather not pay the closest PC store 60$ just for installation labor =\ ) but if there would be a significant difference I would consider it.
I have done abit of research and these headphones seem good. I am open for other suggestions though :
-sennheiser HD 598 ( had very good reviews but still am not sure)
-sennheiser HD 558 ( also good reviews and according to some people is very close to the HD598 but cheaper)
-sennheiser PC 360 ( built for gaming but I don't think I will need the mic)
-BeyerDynamic DT 770 ( good reviews, closed back which is kind of convenient since I can use it outdoors )
-BeyerDynamic DT 990 ( good reviews)
-Philips Fidelio x1 ( expensive but I like the style and seems to have good reviews.)
-SteelSeries Siberia v2 ( seemed to have good reviews but I read in some threads that sound quality isn't that great)
-Audio-Technica ath m50/m50x ( sooOOo many good reviews but I heard its not that good with surround sound gaming. would b e nice when I go outdoors though)
please do help me. I have lurked in these forums long enough and would like suggestions and opinions !! thanks!!
