Good Headphones for everyday life.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey right now I have some old Logitech speakers that are OK but others in the house complain about the noise ._.
So I am looking for some decent headphones for around $150 (can be a bit over depending on the benefits)
It will be used for FPS games and Rock music (Foo Fighters, Breaking Benjamin)
I generally listen to music while playing most games so music > games
I have had experience with the
-G35 which was terrible :/
-HD280 Pro which I loved

I prefer to get everything from this website:
http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/comp...ttypeid=0&t=20

and

I was just thinking about getting the HD280 again

Good idea?

What kind of music do you listen to, and are you going to use them outside of your house?

http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/comp...p?partid=13481 I use these for gaming, DJ'ing and general music listening and I can say they are the best headphone I have ever owned. Although they are marketed as DJ'ing headphones they have amazing sound and are very comfortable (I have worn them for 8 hours+ and haven't got sore ears or head at all). Also the coiled cable may look like a negative but one you have used them for a while you will realise that it is a great feature and most other people I know with headphones similar wish they had a coiled cable. Also since the cable can be unplugged at the actual headphones you always have a 3.5mm cable to plug iPods and other devices into speakers and if the cable breaks which is the main reason all my other headphones broke all you have to do is buy another cable not another set of headphones. Overall they are mean headphones and I highly recommend them

@Maddox Thanks I'll look into the HD215 its cheaper too

@jacobjett I got a defective on with the annoying high pitch sound and RMA's to get 2 other G35s with the same problem. The "5.1" was WAY too tinny and the 2.1 was average for the price I paid. But it was pretty comfy

Renders every headphone below NZ$150 within NZ useless and you get 2 of them

Samson SR850 2 pack for $149

It'll be much better than the HD215. Honestly, don't let the price fool you.

I think the 280's are great for the $$. If you don't mind how snug they are; the quality is great. Plus, they are closed so you won't be bothering people, noise won't bleed in and the clarity is excellent. My vote is for another set of 280's.

Yea the 280 was definitely the most comfortable pair of headphones I have ever had. I have no idea how I lost it during moving house ._.
