Headphones/Headset, Which of the 3 should i buy?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
For my price range, after all the reading and reviews i have been through, it comes down to these:

Sennheiser HD595 for $200
OR
Sennheiser PC360 for $189.99 + Tax
Or
Tritton AX Pro for 169.99+Tax

If you guys could help me decide it would be awesome, please try and put reasons down for your choices, so i can learn and understand.

Thankyou, Blood.

hd595 hands down. Just get a separate mic to go with it. It will blow away the other two "gaming" headsets sound-quality wise.

The HD555 mod looks fairly easy.

The HD595's freq response is 12hz-38500hz, and the 555's is 15hz-25000hz

The mod makes the 555's sound better, but if im not mistaken the 595's ultimatly are better!

THoughts????

^ The amount of air the foam blocks has a bit to do with that as they use the exact same drivers on both headphones. Though they do have nicer ear pads but is that really worth 115 bucks more?

Frequency response numbers like that mean nothing. Human hearing is 20Hz - 20,000Hz.
