Budget gaming headphones...??

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Alright so I looked through a few threads and looked on ebay/amazon/local stores and I have a list of some I could get that were recommended to others.

Samson RH600 - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/160653192740?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_1601wt_952

JVC RX700 - http://www.amazon.com/JVC-HARX700-Precision-Sound-Headphones/dp/B0013OWPV4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1334068624&sr=8-2

JVC RX900 - http://www.amazon.com/JVC-HARX900-High-Grade-Full-Size-Headphone/dp/B0013P3ZOE/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1334069016&sr=8-10

Samson SR850 - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Samson-Headphones-SR850-Professional-Studio-DJ-Earphone-/390222520590?pt=AU_headphone&hash=item5adb13210e#ht_3584wt_952



I game (FPS/RTS and others) and I listen to music (no dubstep/techno though). I'll be using a Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer soundcard. Thanks smile.gif

EDIT: Also I'm not a bass junkie, but I do appreciate good bass tongue.gif

They aren't indeed.

From the headphones you posted i personally like the RX700's. Bass amount is good, and you can customize them.

Thanks guys, I ended up getting the RX700's off amazon. That "international shipping" thing is really useful tongue.gif

Ended up costing $46 AUD shipped, which is a steal considering Sennheiser PC151s cost $90 here if you're lucky....
