Recentlly, i have been doing tons of research over headphones, and looked at many headphones such as seenheissers audio technica, beyerdynamic, grado, astro, sound magic, as well as many more. And im running into problems deciding on what kind of setup to get. I game alot, playing games such as wow, league of legends, and titanfall mainly. So a broad variety of genres, and am in skype quite often. At first i was looking at a good pair of headphones and desk mic, but when taken under consideration, i have a razer black widow mechanical keyboard (And it is vary loud) So unfortunantly, i figured a desk mic was out of the question. I have also looked at the zalman clip on mic, and i just didn't think it was for me, ive also looked at the mod mic but i read it's noise cancelling isn't the best and would probably pickup up my keyboard. I didn't want to have to buy a terrible sound quality headset. I have a 300$ budget. And will be using all of this on a windows 7 pc, without a soundcard. I originally got astro a 40s, but i have been having alot of issues with them, and will be returning them quite soon.
My preferences are.
Preferablly closed back, but will take what i can get
Detachable cables and portability is always a +.
Audio is above all else, but i have to have some way to communicate in skype.
