  1. Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Studio Monitor Headphones

    4.00 star(s)
    Ah, the Audio Technica ATH-M50's. These guys have been reviewed to death and praised to high heaven. They were also my first foray into the audiophile category, and overall, I'd say I've been very satisfied with them.   The audio quality is amazing for the price, though it excels at nothing in particular; In fact, that seems to be their main goal as monitors. They provide an accurate, relatively 'flat' sound stage and frequency response, and in doing so aren't actually very 'fun' to listen to for extended periods of time. There isn't really much...
  2. Monster Turbine Pro Copper In-Ear Headphones

    I got these about a year and a half ago as a Christmas gift, and they've been my companion for some time until the left earpiece one day began outputting a significantly lower sound level than the right. The build quality in general had always worried me, with the drivers rocking a little in their outer casing, the stress relievers at the earpieces actually coming off and sliding down the wire, and other weirdness. However, they did last me for over a year, and Monster's warranty should cover it.   With that out of the way, the sound quality is...
  3. Sennheiser MOMENTUM

    I really can't say enough about how much these headphones blew me away when I picked them up. My only previous 'high-end' headphone purchase was a pair of Audio Technica ATH-M50's, and while those aren't exactly collecting dust, these have become my go-to pair of headphones.   Audio quality is superb. Bass is warm but controlled, and fun to listen to, coupled with very detailed mids and highs. I did at first notice that the treble in certain tracks sounded a little strange, though I've since discovered that the tracks appear to have been mixed...
  4. Razer Tiamat 7.1

    1.50 star(s)
    I picked these up knowing that they wouldn't come close to the quality level of my Sennheiser Momentum headphones, but needing a headset, I figured Razer's flagship would be up to the task. The packaging and control box were very nice, and the speaker pass-through dongle was a great touch. It's also rather comfortable, and the auto-adjusting headband is a pleasure to wear. The microphone stays out of the way, and slides up inside the headphones when not in use That said, though, the good ends there. In 2.1 stereo mode, the sound is very muffled...
  5. Sennheiser PC 330 Gaming Headset (Black)

    1.50 star(s)
    This headset is quite possibly the least comfortable thing I have yet experienced. The clamping force is extreme, and the supra-aural design means that the earcups are directly pinching the ears while it's worn. No amount of flexing and stretching really helps with this, and while the material the earcups are made of is relatively comfortable in itself, nothing can prevent the serious pinching issues present on these. Working an eight hour shift with these on absolutely destroys my ears to the point where they're tender to even touch at the end of...
  6. Sennheiser PC 360 Headset for Pro Gaming

    4.00 star(s)
    For some time, I'd been looking for a decent all-rounder headset that I could use for both gaming and for work, as my job requires VoIP calls. Previously, I'd been using a Turtle Beach (D)PX21 headset for this, but didn't want to purchase another after its earcup snapped off due to the mediocre performance while playing music. I'd tried and returned the Razer Tiamat 7.1, and most recently been back and forth between the PC 350 and PC 360. After a much longer than necessary deliberation period, I decided to give the 360 a shot. I'm quite pleased to...
