budget headphones for gaming/music

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, my main use for these headphones as stated before would be gaming/music and a bit of movies, Id like these headphones to be :

 

1-cheap (poor fag here) under 60$

2-Comfortable, most important thing for long gaming sessions.

3-I play a lot of Counter strike so hearing footsteps and stuff like that is good.

4-my music ranges from hip-hop to metal to classic...basically everything.

5-preferably closed or semi closed I guess, its ok to leak but I don't want speakers.

 

Some headphones I found that are withing my range : 

 

-Superlux HD-681 EVO 

-Panasnoic HTF-600-s

 

What would you recommend out of these 2 and if you have any other suggestions I wouldn't mind.

 

Thanks in advance :)

The Panasonic HTF-600-S are surprising good for the price, but to me the plastic is just a little too "cheap".

 

Superlux HD-681 EVO or Samson SR850 (made by Superlux)

(You can get Velour ear pads for the SR850 for around $16, on eBay)

They are more like semi-open headphones, should not be a "noise" issues for other people around you.

I would say to not get closed headphones, open headphones are less "tiring" on the ears.

Thank you guys for the replies, which one would you recommend for me Superlux HD-681 EVO or Samson SR850 I can get either, aside form games I do hear a lot of music, also something that wont kill my ears with long gaming sessions. 

 

both have really good reviews this is rather confusing :P

I believe the HD 681 "EVO" is a later revision then the Samson SR850.

So i say get the EVO.
