Best headphones under £50

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am looking for some headphones for under £50, which I will be using mainly for single player gaming, with some music (mainly bass and dance). I would be using it at home on my pc with fairly modern middle of the line integrated sound. I live in england and any site is good. So far I have been recommended the superlux hd668b and the creative aurvana live but I would love some more opinions/other options. What should I buy?

I have also just been recommended the sennheiser 419s as well.

i have the plantronic gamescom 780. My first headset and i must say i'm very happy with it:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-reviews/B0079G2Y52/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1

reviews at amazon.co.uk give it 4.5 stars. That's quite good, or is it not? I have nothing to complain about using thisheadset for a few months now :-)

edit: oh you said single player gaming, haha this one has a microphone. Anyways, i'll leave it here

Superlux 681 EVO is a good choice too, it should be bundled with leather and velour pads.
I'll post later if the Thomann.de hd681EVO has the velour pads bundled with the headphones, few guys from another forum are waiting for them to arrive.

EDIT: Never, ever decide your buy based on kids reviews who have never tested more than 2 headsets (amazon/etc.).
Why? Because ignorance is a bliss.
I thought my 5.1 Tritton headset sounded nice, then I upgraded to studio headphones --> in comparison the old headset sounds plain horrible (horrible enough that I will never use them again, even if I break all my other headphones).
