Sennheiser PC37x

Best bang for the buck imo. It’s pretty impressive.

PC37X is amazing if you require a built in mic. Far better than most "gaming headsets".

Fostex Massdrop THX00, because it can give you bass, EQs nicely, is non-fatiguing, you can swap the pads to the kind you like, they can take a beating, are not too expensive and the closed nature reduces outside noises (traffic, computer noise, etc). The only downside for me was the headband, but I solved it by putting a wool softener (kind a like a sock or a wrap-around) around the headband and now it doesn't press my head anymore.

I've owned tons of other headpones, have tried most of the closed good quality ones and the only one that I liked equal (but with different sound characteristics) was Beyerdynamic T70P with Beyer's replacement gel pads (excellent isolation, great if you wear glasses).

DT770-80. These headphones are very comfortable even for long gaming sessions, also the sound quality and positioning is excellent for demanding games like CS:GO and PUBG.

SHP9500s with V-Moda Boom Pro Mic for all gaming. Sometimes I just use a standard V-Moda cable if I do not need the mic like when I play Thumper.

I have thought about the PC-37x with a 4 pole cable.

I use the PC37X. I've EQ'd them to have a bit more bass and bit more treble. I'm a fine of the V-shape sound. I also have a Fiio E17k that I've been using with it.

You don't have any wearing comfort issues for gaming? I can't use my LCD-2 for gaming, because of the weight and pressing on the top of my head.
I would say I have an abnormally high tolerance for things not being perfect, so I just deal with the weight and comfort... It doesn't bother me much, but I do understand what you are talking about. If it helps you can always bend the headband a little to get rid of some of the clamp. Also, when I get the pressure on my head, I kind of just move it to a different spot.

Currently using Beyerdynamic DT1770 Pro's w/ Dekoni Elite Velour earpads hooked up to an SMSL M6. Using a ModMic 4.0 to round it all out. People constantly ask how I hear certain things in CSGO, haha!
