Okay, I know what responses I'm going to get right away -- don't use in-ears for gaming, they're bad, etc.
I'm more than aware, I use my DT770's normally for closed headphones, and my DT990's or HD598's for open for gaming.
The issue is that, the last LAN event I played in, my DT770's still didn't give me enough noise cancellation around me, so while obviously I love the soundstage of DT770's, not being able to hear a thing with how many people were around me wasn't ideal either.
I'm not looking to spend more than $50 on these, I just need something with decent quality that will allow me to have in-ears so I can block out the noise around me and actually just play the game at the event.
I have no interest in over the ears for this, I really just need them for LAN events.
