Headphones failing, need suggestions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Right, so my Fatal1ty gaming headphones(Don't laugh!) are failing on me, it seems that the cable is coming apart at the volume adjusting thing on the cable.

It's making the headphones only play from one speaker, depending on what sort of angle it's at.

Budget: €50

I'm guessing the best choice for now are the JVC HA-RX700's? I've already got one of those zalman clip-on mics lying around somewhere, too.

I've fixed the headphones for now by taping it up, but i doubt it's gonna last. And I've got some weird need to buy something right now.

EDIT: Also, i forgot to mention this but i mainly listen to Metal, Rap & Dubstep. So pretty much everything. Gaming, too.

Dear god, another EDIT: Not an audiophile, either. As you can probably see from my current headphones.

Ive found that Sennheiser have great performance for the price. Im currently using Sennheiser HD280 Pro's which cost about 180AUD. Ive used the HD212 Pro's before and they were also great sounding and alot cheaper.

Does anybody know if the sennheiser HD 419/418's are any good? I could get them for around 55euro.

Is this in an ascending quality order? biggrin.gif

EDIT: I'm guessing not, since those Beyerdynamics look really weak.

So it's down to either the RX700's or the Sr850's.
