HD280s probably aren't going to be too great for gaming. The HD555, as mentioned before, and the AD700 are probably the most popular gaming cans available. If you want a closed headphone, the Beyerdynamic DT770 is a good option.

I think the refurbished hd555s are a better deal than the 280s. Better sound quality, lower price. Just my opinion though.

I personally went with the ATH-M40fs and I love them. They are closed back so they have solid bass and they fit in right around your price point. They sound great gaming as well as listening to some flac audio. I paired them with a Asus Xonar DG so i can get a headphone amp and they sound beautiful.

For you it really depends on what you listen to as well as what other audio hardware you have like someone already stated.

I listen to some hip hop with my 595's. They handle it fine.

From my experience, the bass on the 555s was rather anemic, but if they suit you, that's all that really matters.

Well I dont expect them to rupture my ear drums from the pulse of bass






but you're right, to each their own.

have you tried going to walmart and buying a pair of 3 dollar headphones? they last surprisingly long and sound deceptively good enough. Honestly though, I have yet to find a nice pair of cans that don't hurt my ears after an hour... I have huge ears

Turtle Beach HPA2's true 5.1 and adjustable channels including bass. 8 speakers for true positioning when the game supports it. Black Ops is awesome with them. i paid 63.00 for mine new in the box, you just have to look around.

I am not being funny in any way. Have you tried Audio-Technica's AD700 or A700? The earcups can accomodate those with extremely large ears.

Large ear size is not uncommon. Both of those headphones will suit your needs. I review audio products often, and believe or not, my two best choices to audition the fit of a product are my grandfather, mother, and son.

Why you ask? My mother and son do not want their hair "messed up" and my grandfather has large ears. All of them said the Audio-Technica headphones felt like they were not even on their heads and ears at all. My grandfather received a "books on CD" all in one package and he said the cheap headphones hurt his head and ears after 30 minutes. The AD700 solved the problem in seconds, literally. He also liked them because he said he could hear the phone ring if he needed to. Very practical I think, but the headphones are some of the best out there for the price and performance.
