I need headphones and I need help picking them out

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I am in desperate need of some headphones. my logitech z313 speakers dont have a bass adjustment on them and I cannot play cod or watch a movie at night without waking up my daughter or the ole lady.

I have walmart, best buy, target and gamestop locally to buy from. I need to buy a set today. I have a budget of $50, I know its low and im not expecting to find some killer headphones for that price but i dont expect a junky set either.

I dont need a mic as no one talks online and I dont have any pc gaming buddies i basically play by myself. I would prefer a over the ear design as they are comfy and block out noise rather well.

Id appreciate it if you can suggest a decent pair of headphones, im going nuts looking at them online trying to find a decent set as I have no clue what ones are good/bad or even what to look for in a set of head phones.

I used my buddies turtle beach px21 headphones yesterday when I played cod and they were nice but they were $79 and are out of my price range.

I need to buy these today so hopefully someone can chime in and help me out, i have no clue what makes a set of headphones good, ive never bought a set before so please help me out guys I surely need it

sorry these are for my pc

You're doing yourself an injustice by needing to pick up headphones from those local stores, but if you need them today I would suggest:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Koss+-+P...0Pro&cp=1&lp=1

If you've got a Radioshack near you, you can try to see if they have the JVC Rx700s. Those would be your absolute best buy.

Those stores are not going to offer you very good sound quality for your buck do you not have ear buds or something you can use while you wait for something better to ship?
