Never switching from quality cans again.
On a side note, is there a more comfortable pair of cans than the 700s? I've yet to find anything as comfortable for long gaming sessions but would love to hear others opinions.
That's what we keep telling people. At least we now have one more among us that know the truth. As for comfortable headphones. That's a tricky one as pretty much everyone has there own opinion and preference.
Personally I pretty much refuse to use other then full sized headphones that have auto adjusting headband. Currently a I have a pair of Siberia v1's.
The sound is well balanced but noting special. They are very comfortable though I would not mind a bit more padding on the cups. IMO decent for the price but if you are a heavy user of headphones (I don't as I mainly listen to my floor speakers) you do wan something better form a company that makes more mid/high-end stuff like Beyerdynamic, Sennheiser, AKG that sorta thing.
If I was to go out and buy some quality headphones today I would probably go a pair of AKG K-142 HD even if they don't quite conform to my specific ergonomic taste.Edited by Bit_reaper - 12/3/12 at 9:10am
