So short story is after several gaming headsets broke and what not I decided to come here and see what people who know what good sounding headphones were saying. At first it was just looking for another gaming headset then started reading about mod mic and kinda felt dumb for not doing something like that before.
I work at Target part time and going through 2 year school all out of my pocket so when I saw some Bose AE2's white go on clearance for 50% off + my discount I just couldn't say no.
After. much tweaking and finding out about using k-lite for audio codecs I got these things I think to the best possible sound I can get. I do like them but actually starting to look for more headsets to play with and maybe a little larger ear cup for better acoustics.
For me the AE2's are struggling with the type of music I like which is very pog rock and very layered complex music and intricate beats and melodies ect. all layered in. These headphones tend to a get a bit muddy sounding when all that is going on (response time thing?).
Any way I am looking for some headphones more geared to what I listen to most.
Bands I like: Opeth, Pink Floyd (darkside of the moon), The Doors, Steve Wilson ect..
It needs to have enough bass to make it feel punchy w/o too much as I am not a huge bass head.
It need to focus on mid/ highs more geared towards male vocals.
It needs good detail and response times so I can hear more of the layered type of music I listen to.
Most importantly I am on a Target budget + school so ya spending 150$ can feel like 300$ to me.
was looking at these for the sale price seems nice plus wood cups are a nice style and sound isolation is nice when living in an apartment like I do.
I could go for audio technica set maybe but really looking to stay under 150$ range if possible. If you guys got any suggestions on headsets that would be good for the type of music I listen too drop a link in so I can take a look. I love amazon but headphone reviews can be hard as most people are sheeples that like beats or w/e is trendy.
