Any recommendation for a headphone?

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
- 70%-80% Gaming, rest for music (mainly hip hop)

- Price no higher than $200, even better if around $100

- Low sound leaking out preferred, since I'll be using it in a dorm and I live with two other people. Noise cancelling... a nice thing to have, but not necessary.

- Don't want one of those microphone-attached ones please. Ugly pos and it gives people the first impression of "you're nerd."

Audio Technica ATH-M50s
They're closed back, have good bass, fine for gaming IMO and you can get them between $100-120 usually.

Good gaming/music headphones would be ATH A700 or AD700(open backed for greater soundstage, less bass). JVC HA-RX700 and 900's are good as well. Beyer DT770 M's are pretty good for all around use as well.

Like candy said, I don't want to disturb my roommate by letting them know that I'm playing bf3, for example

+1 for the A700s. I got a pair for $100, they're great.Closed back, so they have pretty good bass and they still have a decent soundstage
