Need help finding over-ear headphones for gaming, recording & music.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

As the title states, I need some assistance in finding a headphone since I know very little about headphones.

 

 

What I'm looking for is pretty good isolation, since they will be used in combination with my Blue Nessie for recording gameplay & skyping (So the people I'm skyping with doesn't hear my music) 

Also I prefere over-ear, and would like something that can be comfortably worn for hours. I currently have Turtlebeach x22, and do not like wearing them for extended time periods.

Since I also play a lot of games, I'm looking for surround sound, I play FPS and Strategy games if that's to any help. (Some of the games I play: Gmod, css, minecraft, League of Legends, Command & Conquer, skyrim.)

Also I will be using them for hearing music, I mostly listen at a medium level and hear electronic dance music. 

The price doesn't matter much if what I'm getting for my money is quality. If it helps in helping me, I live in Denmark.

 

Thanks in advance.

My understanding is that AKG Q701 and others in the AKG K700 series are often used in studios. And because of their big soundstage, they are considered fantastic for gaming. They do benefit from a headphone amp, though.

What about the Beyer Dynamic DT 990 pro? I've had that also recommended.

Depends. By "recording" did you mean making and mixing music? Some people would find the DT990s too colored for that with their bass and treble emphasis.

By recording I meant that they'll be used for editing and needs good isolation, so that game sounds and music wont be picked up from my mic.

A lot of people use mics with open headphones for gaming. You might ask in this thread and see what mic they recommend: http://www.head-fi.org/t/534479/mad-lust-envys-headphone-gaming-guide-update-4-17-2014-akg-k612-and-k712-pro-added-edits
