New headset/headphones

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I'm currently looking for new headphones or headset. The ones I have right now are pretty cheap and have only worked for like 4-5 months... Now one side of the headphones is dead. I don't absolutely need a mic but it would be a +. As for the uses it's mostly for listening to music and gaming. My budget is around 50$ and I'd like something that will last at least 1 1/2 - 2 years. Also I'm gonna use it a lot so it should be quite comfortable.

For gaming, I am a fan of the Logitech G330's. I've had mine for about a year, have nothing but praise for them. They also come with a USB adapter.

Newegg has them for ~$35 (Free shipping).

I forgot to mention I live in Canada.

I'm thinking of buying JVC rx700... Are these good headphones?

I also like the Sennheiser HD280s, but they are a bit tight to me and not as comfortable as the Audio Technicas. I actually prefer the ATH-AD series, but they may not have the bass you want which is why I recommended the M series. My current set (ATH-AD500) took a while to burn in, but now sound great.
It's so little!

The RX700's are awesome headphones for the money. Their sound quality is insanely good and probably the best in the price range.
