Looking for some nice cans, but for a reasonable price £160 budget

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi all, 

 

I recently had my corsair vengeance 2100's crap out on me, and i've decided i'm done with headsets forever now. I want to get some nice sounding cans and a decent mic in place of them.

 

I plan to stream on twitch with this setup, so I am really looking for a pair of closed back headphones, so as to not interfere with the microphone.

 

So far i'm thinking of getting this for the microphone:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Audio-Technica-Cardioid-Condenser-USB-Microphone/dp/B001AS6OYC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1404665843&sr=8-2&keywords=cardoid+microphone

 

In addition the headphones need to have decent bass (I enjoy listening to drum and bass, and some dubstep), I also like listening to kpop and a small amount of rock.

 

My budget maximum is really around £250, so minus the mic that's around £160 left for headphones and extras.

 

It's worth noting I have read many threads, including mad lust envy's gaming headphone guide. While I will be using these headphones mainly for gaming, I always listen to music while playing - Pretty much the only game I play is league of legends, to a competitive level. It would be a great addition to the headphones if it has good positional sound, as long as it's decent i'm OK with that.

 

And finally, I am using an integrated soundcard so you may have to include a DAC/amp in my budget (I don't know whether or not i'd need one).

 

NOTE: I feel that I have looked around and could not find something within my budget, every time I seem to have found something - the amp/dac that people say I need takes me over budget. So please remember to factor in this extra cost!

 

Thanks.

By the time it took my post to be approved I found something myself anyway :). I picked up a pair of audio technica ATH-M50X's , due to their versatile response across the spectrum. 

 

Not sure how to delete my post, but I figured i'd leave this here for anyone else if they need help.
