Need new music/gaming headset, suggestions please!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My budget is about $250-300 MAX - Already have a sound card (X-Meridian 7.1 2G)

Recently i purchased the tiamat 7.1 from razer, to try out thinking they might actually be decent. But as i had expected the audio-quality was sub-par at best.

It would be mainly used for music and gaming, probably 60-70% music with the rest being gaming.
I listen to trance, house and progressive, so any headset that would be best for that and gaming would be awesome.
I've tried looking on pccasegear and have thought the AD700's might be alright but looking for feedback + help.

Any ideas would be awesome, Thanks a lot biggrin.gif!.

Even the AD900's, but that is more expensive, but if its worth it then i might grab them.

I'm assuming you want some headphones with some decent bass based on your musical preference. I would stay away from the Audio Technica's and check out the Beyerdynamic 770's or 880's. If you want some more suggestions take a look at Head-Fi.

Thanks, i'll have a look at them and on Head-Fi. Any other suggestions would be considered too, if anyone else can think of something else.

The Beyerdynamic 880's 600ohm looks pretty decent might end up going with them.
