Then what would u recommend then?

If isolation (from outside noise and sound leakage) isn't a problem, the Audio Technica AD700 for competitive gaming. Casual gaming for the experience = different.

The K271 MKII are nice gaming and music headphones particularly if you want good sound isolation. An amp is recommended although they aren't horrible without one.

Personally I had my 271s running through a AMB Mini3 that I built for around $70-80 USD. It's a simple amp so it can be assembled with minimal circuitry knowledge and soldering skills. A pre-built Mini3 will cost about $20-30 more. I found the sound quality to be much better than the consumer options in that price range like the Fiio.

the k701, and the 271mk II are two totally different sets of cans dude...
