I'm looking for a pair of headphones that'll serve as my daily drivers. I do a lot of gaming (90% of it is FPS) so they have to be able to give me the unfair advantage. ;D I don't soundwhore as much as an MLG pro, but I would like to be able to tell if someone's sneaking up behind me in Call of Duty.
I've had the Razer Carcharias in 2010-2012 which was okay. Very comfortable, but the sound quality kind of sucked. I didn't like the clarity. I can't remember how they worked with my games, though.
2012 to last week, I've been rocking a pair of Creative Aurvana Live! and I loved them to pieces. They were quite clear and comfortable, and I might go back to them if I can't find something I like more. I don't like the build quality; the right cup just snapped off. I tried repairing it, but it's no use.
Right now, I have the Samson SR850s and they're okay; I'm currently in the process of burning them in, but something feels off.
Particularly, I listen to a lot of J-pop, ska, metalcore, pop punk, and post-hardcore. Here's my Last.fm if you're curious. Some examples:
My budget is preferably around 200 USD.
Thanks a million!
