Requesting Work Headphone and Sound Device Recommendation

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I was wondering if there was any opinions on a headphone that has pretty decent sound quality and isolation that aren't huge, or earbuds....also wondering about a USB device too as the onboard sound has a lot of interference on my work computer, but I can't use anything that'll require a driver install requiring admin rights...I'm using a Syba USB sound device that takes care of the whirls and electronic noise, but just makes everything way too loud.

Thinking my budget for the usb device is around $50 more or less (doesn't have to be great, but as the one I'm using now is about $5-10, figure a decent one would have to cost at least $20-30)
Headphones I don't mind paying more for, somewhere $50-200. Also easy to take off and put on was something I was looking at (as earbuds get tangled and you have to use your fingers to put in/take out, rather than slipping them on/off like you do w/ headphones).

Also as an aside, any suggestions on 3DS headphones? I don't mind earbuds for those, and I figure really nice ones would be a waste, but hoping someone looked into the capabilities of the sound system and might know the perfect solution smile.gif Any/all suggestions or advice welcomed, thank you.

May be too specific a question....oh well.

How do you feel about used products?

There are things available at your price point, but if you are willing to go with used equipment, I think I can give you some more options. thumb.gif
