One thing that needs to be remembered is that those sorts of headphones are usually not bad, just overpriced. I owned a pair of Razer headphones and I really liked them. After getting my current cans (ATH-A700) I see what I could have gotten for the same price. But in no way was I disappointed with the Razer set. If you like the headset, then enjoy it. Just know that when the time comes to upgrade again you will now know what to look for.

I will only know if they are bad when I try something better, therefore I do think they are awesome though, I have never had headphones this expensive $40! I'm just about to purchase my first sound card a Xonar DX(PCI version), can't wait to get it!

Please help me.

Which's the opened back headphone for music/games and costing <=25 USD do you recommend me?

Sorry for my English. I'm Brazilian, so my language is Portuguese.

Koss ksc75. There is also the Koss ktxpro1 which uses a similar driver, only it has a headband instead of clip-on.

drjoey1500, thank you!

Are There only these two recommendations?

What do you think about the Sennheiser HD 437 that looks good and recommended Sennheiser HD 202 but with the back open?

I've heard bad things about the hd437. I remember reading that they have bloated, muddy bass like the hd202.

Honestly, the koss ksc75 have plenty of bass, if anything too much (modding can help this). Compared to hd202, the ksc75 are slightly clearer, and there is better treble. You wouldn't think so by the look of them, but the ksc75 are basically agreed on as the best you can get in that price range.

TBH, all the headphones I've tried (hd202, ksc75) in that price range have a pretty compressed soundstage. If you can afford a little more, I've read that the JVC HARX700 are great. They are usually about $35. If not, I'd go for the ksc75/ktxpro1.

Hey guys,

I was wondering if there are any clip on mics that aren't clip on to your lapel or on the headphone wire, but rather they have clip on say, some part of the actual headphone, and the microphone is positioned next to your actual mouth like a regular headset's microphone is?

I have a mic that I clip on to my collar, but it's much too muffled when I put it there. I held the mic up just near my mouth and it's so much clearer without having to speak a lot louder. I currently have made a DIY clip using a sticky square plastic thing I got in a PC cable tidying kit and a plastic fork (lol), and clip the mic on the end of the plastic fork so that it's just near my mouth. It looks utterly retarded though, so was just wondering if there were any products that are basically what i've done but done right?

Or failing that, anyone know of any materials or something I can easily build that is sturdy enough to hold the weight of a small mic even with the length it needs to reach my mouth, but is also somewhat bendable and adjustable? Like some kinda of plastic you can get from a DIY shop or something?

Quick question.

If I'm on a laptop or a desktop with onboard audio, will buying a USB headset with an integrated sound card increase sound quality?

No, it'll bypass it.

Zalman clip-on mic is one.
