Haha oh I'm sorry, I misunderstood. The Nighthawk almost feel closed so they do get warm on my head.
Are you playing on PC or on console? Are you looking to use a microphone?
Ok, thanks, I guess no reason for me to buy nighthawks then.
I play on console, but behind a desk. I do have a (cheap) desk mic, which has worked great in the past, so that is not an issue.
I bought the PC38x to get rid of the separate mic (and wires) and while it is not bad, it doesn't sound as good as my nightowls (which honestly is not a fair comparison...) and they are way less comfortable.
I am going to see if the pads fix the PC38x comfort, although I am afraid they increase the bass. And otherwise I might need to go look for something else (Sundara?) and get my desk mic back. I just ordered a shiit hel 2, so that should all work with eachother. I sold my old akg 612 which I used for gaming, since the PC38x sounded a bit better, but they were more comfortable for sure.
I guess this is quite off topic here though! Still very curious about the nighthawk though... but 250 is too much for me atm to just have a "weird" headphone in my collection.
I have seen some questions about wires though, so maybe I can contribute there: I bought these as a replacement for the owls, and they are very nice especially for the price: https://www.amazon.com/Monolith-2-5...ith+Dual+2.5mm+to+3.5mm&qid=1616751632&sr=8-2
It looks good too imho with the complete black headphones.
