Best headphone for gaming and music

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I want to buy new headphone for gaming and music, but I was confused which is good headphone for both? The music headphone are doesn't give gaming excitement and vice versa

The brand want to buy is Seinheiser and SteelSeries, which is good headphone for both (gaming and music), so whenever I'm go tripping I can still using headphone with my phone without annoying microphone!

I recently made aquisition of a Qpad qh-90. I think it would suite your needs.
Great isolation (but the qh-85 is opend if you prefer), it's a beyerdynamics base so top quality. It's primarly a gaming headset but with hi-fi sound quality. The microphone can be detached and it comes with an adapter for use with iphone-like terminals.
I used a razer orca headset and a roccat kave before this one and I'm never ever buying a mid range gaming headset after having tried that qpad. It's a 100 dolars but a total and absolute best for this price range (some will argue it's actualy better than the PC350-360 from seinnheiser, I didn't try it so I couldn't tell).

Meh... That was so expensive for me, what other headphone with <$50 price tag with gaming capable and music clarity? I am mid-core audiophile (focus to balanced price with quality)
