Looking for gaming earbuds/clip behind the ear setup.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Folks, basically, I've got a Asus g74sx bbk7 that I game on, and use quite a bit these days. The audio card in this machine isn't too bad, especially when the THX True Studio is launched and on. I've got HD 280's on my desktop with some promedia 2.1's. I'm looking for either ear buds or the earbuds that wrap around the back of the ear, either way is fine. I'm just looking for something that sounds amazing from a gaming standpoint. I know the drivers are small, and being there is only one in each bud I'm not expecting a 5.1, 7.1 emulated exeperience, but I'd like to get as close as possible. No more than 100ish. Mic is completely optional.

I've heard a lot of good about the MEElectronics buds:

What about some larger clip on headphones like these Audio-Technicas:

http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-ATH-EW9-Lightweight-Clip-Headphones/dp/B000CMTV3I

I mean...it really just depends on what you want quality wise. Saying you want earbuds and have $100 is like walking into a candy store with $10...your choices are unlimited!

Hell, go for a cheap pair of Monoprice buds seen here:

http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=108&cp_id=10823&cs_id=1082303&p_id=8320&format=2

Yeah yeah...they're only $9 but they're pretty comfortable and made well and sound EXCELLENT! WAYYY above and beyond their measly $10 price tag. That 14.2mm driver is pretty baller.

So yeah...just some suggestions but more info would be nice like what kind of sound do you want? More bass? More accurate? Etc.

Bass is nice and all, but coupled with crisp accurate sound. In essence, I just want something to wow me, but just not be bulky like the HD280s
