Need Gaming Headphones

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Can someone suggest to me what qualifies as the best ~$100 or lower gaming headphones a guy could get his hands on. Something available in Canada please. Newegg.ca, tigerdirect.ca, etc.

Honestly I don't know much when it comes to audio, so I really haven't got a clue what is better than what. I just want something with some nice surround sound for a reasonable price, if anyone can throw out some suggestions

Thanks

Under $100 you won't be getting any good "gaming headsets". They exist, but not really at your price range. I recommend you glance over this as this pertains to you: http://www.overclock.net/sound-cards...-headsets.html

What I would suggest is the zalman clip on mic + Audio Technica AD700. AD700 have the best soundstage (means that you can hear people around you) and are extremely comfortable.

Other recommended options are sennheiser hd555, Superlux 668B, Samson RH600, JVC or RX700s.
