Should I snipe these headphones? I'm scared it will be fake or something:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Audio-Technica-ATH-WS77-Solid-Bass-Headphones-Black-/321187319756?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item4ac8418fcc

Unfortunately I have no idea. I remember he was telling me something about how awesome they were and I just saw that they were on sale. I will ask him again and report back but I think he is on vacation. He doesnt use them for a lot of gaming but he said the clarity and sound was on par with his bose. Not sure how accurate they would be but he paid $60 I think for his.

Sorry I couldnt be of more help.

You helped me, +rep, this is the lowest price for the AKGs that can be found. Much appreciated

I've been using this headset for a few years.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826158082

Sure, I'm on my third set due to the wires breaking, but the headset itself is pretty nice.

It's probably not the best quality you'll get, since it has a built in microphone, but I never have trouble locating where players are ingame with it on.
I have it on for around 12 hours a day, sometimes more. I usually sleep with it on since it is so comfortable.

At first it is tight and can squeeze your head slightly, but that goes away in a while. To speed that up, you can put it over your desktop tower to keep it stretched overnight for a week and it'll loosen up. After that's done, it feels like nothing on your head. I've got a pretty large one myself, not a single "one size fits all" hat fits on me.

I have the sennheiser HD419, they are very comfortable and can wear them for hours, but the cord is reallly short and annoying.

Funny, and informative post; I'd like to see how these compare to the Turtle Beach x11 headset

http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Creative-HS-800-Fatal1ty-Series-Gaming-Headset-With-Microphone-Fatality-/200903287791?pt=US_Computer_Headsets&hash=item2ec6c4e3ef

scratch that, found it for $27 here:
http://www.amazon.com/Creative-HS-800-Fatal1ty-Gaming-Headset/dp/B002DS4HTM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377613030&sr=8-1&keywords=hs-800

Wow, $35 for a headset.. and I need a microphone. Interesting, I wonder how the sound-stage compares to the RX700s $33 (Walmart).

I prefer short cables smile.gif

Should I go with brand new Sennheiser 419's or refurbished 428s? It's a $10 difference with the 428s being more cheap than the 419s.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B004RO3V7O/ref=dp_olp_refurbished?ie=UTF8&condition=refurbished

Audio Technica ATH-T400, 53mm drivers, quality brand, refurb'd by the company itself + includes warranty

I own a pair of ATH-700X's which are slightly different but they have the same drivers and ear cushions. crazy comfy, even if u happen to wear glasses underneath

I stay away from headsets as i find they break easier but that doesnt always apply

Funny, I was literally saying to myself I am not getting a headset! Then I refresh my thread and see your post.

I'll check these out, and I am digging how you sold me on comfort + warranty.

I am going to search for reviews on soundstage on the ATH-T400s vs Sennheiser 419s/428s vs JVC RX700s and try to make a decision.

i'd also check this thread on the head fi forums:

http://www.head-fi.org/t/433318/shootout-107-portable-headphones-reviewed-astrotec-as-100hd-as-200hd-added-12-02-12

it's somewhat dated now, which isnt such a bad thing - you might be able to find some of the headphones listed in the 30-50 or even 50-100 bracket which fall within your budget now.

good luck with it all

Great guide, makes me want a Sennheiser 428 or Audio Technica M30


Trying to decide between:

Samson SR850
Sennheiser 419
Sennheiser 428
JVC RX700
Audtio Technica ATH-T400
Audtio Technica ATH-M40FS
Superflux 668B
