This. +1
Or alternatively, a Superlux HD668b if you need something more closed (not fully though).


But to answer TS question, I really do not suggest you get the Roccat Kave at all. I tried it out many years ago and it was just awful in its comfort, so bad that I felt nauseated. The weight are like hanging 2 stereo speakers around your neck and that stupid headband design, it's just utterly ridiculous... 3 pads? Seperated and thin pleather? The hell?

If you really cannot get a ATH-AD700 or Superlux HD668b, then stay with the 7h. At least, it does sound decent, is decently comfortable. But BECAREFUL of the headband, plenty of horror stories of how many have had their 7h broken in half due to the built quality of it.

Otherwise, if for whatever reason you do not want headphones with a mic... the Corsair Vengeance 1300 is the only other headset I would recommend, reluctantly.
