Headphones

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey, I'm looking to buy a new pair of headphones for gaming (fps/rts) and music. Probably 60% gaming 40% music. I don't really mind whether its open or closed, but I would like to keep it around $100~ (preferably lower though). I also would not like to get soft, velvet? cushion ears as they are rather hard to clean.

eDimensional Ben Heck's Audio FX 5.1 Head Sets



-_-

I cannot count the amount of times I have been accused of Walling, just because I can hear people's foot steps so well.

Pro
*Great fit on my ears and the band has great cushion, hours of gaming with no head or ear aches.
*You cannot hear a darn thing people right next to your are saying
*5.1 virtual surround immerses you in the explosions anf gun fire while still being able to pick out foot steps
*USB driver (Which most of the audio enthusiasts find as a can) I find this very helpful. The ability to rely on great drivers as opposed to a very expensive Sound card makes this great to switch back and forth from headsets to Speakers.
*The Microphone is great...crisp and clear. (provides great adjust-ability for either side of the face)

Cons
*I am on my second pair of these The construction is very solid. Aside from one terrible flaw.
Where the Ear piece connects to the head band is just a swivel joint and if you are like me and tended to throw down your head sets they will eventually break. (I have now attached a coat hook to my case and hang them up. I also do not toss them into my keyboard like previously)
*Holy CRAP! these things are loud. I usually have them no higher than notch 1 or 3 on the device. I control the volumn via windows instead of the head sets.
*Stupid LED lights on the side that light up when sound is present. (Does not annoy me, but it does my wife)
*After a few hours you start to get hot in them. (That cold just be me)
*You cannot hear people in the room even when they are talking right next to you...Tends to piss off the person trying to get something from you.

Overall I rate these as the best I have ever had.

I always have the intentions of trying to get new Headsets, but they just cost so much and I do not have the money to waste to try out some of these 150+ dollar headsets.

granted I spent $90 on these when they first came out, and another $60 when they broke.

But that $150 still has ppl crying "Wallz" as I Lawlz

I second the JVC HARX700 on a budget, better choice would be Audio Technica ATH-AD700.
But those AudioFX are one of the biggest garbage I had ever listened too. I would never recommend that to anyone. if those are the best you ever had, then something is really wrong here.

Third this. Depending on your tastes.

If you are more of a classical/rock listener, grab the ATH-AD700 like Junkie suggested.

If you want nearly the same audio quality to the HARX700/900 but with an included mic, grab the Logitech G35.

gah....

Honestly OP:

What's your current sound setup?
music tastes?
do you prefer gaming for the experience or gaming for the positional cues?

There's little point in the replies above as they don't factor these questions in.

While I will not just openly attack your accusation of how my cans are trash...I would only point out that you provided no details as to why your opinion has been formulated, other than a vague statement of their quality.

I would have given your suggestions a try if they were not immediately followed by an ignorant, distasteful, and child like rant about a product another had suggested. I know you are better than that...and while a "UMAD" or some other "trollspeak" flame-a-thon may ensue. This must be said.

Maybe next time you can formulate a response which is...for lack of a better term..."Adult".

IE:

I would disagree with the Audio FX suggested above. I have tried them and I myself found them to be terrible for the following reasons.

"They suck" is not helpful to this thread, any thread, heck anytime there is a question were people are looking for real answers.

We live in a world of accountability and "why" so please be more elaborate.

Please do not take this personally, I just feel if no one ever says anything, then we will never learn.
