If strong bass is important to you then I'd avoid all of those phones. It's hard to find something with a lot of bass but also give a nice airy sound - which in general is good for FPS gaming.
What would you suggest

Thanks!
Other questions that would be helpful if you answered:

Source(meaning soundcard, seperate dac):
Any amplifcation:

And toss the grados out now, they sound nice for rock music but they are worthless for games.

LOL gotcha.

So I would assume open means sound can still be heard outside of the phones, semi open = kinda still hear out the phones? and closed = cannot or very little sound heard out side of the phones?

Onboard sound unless it is recommended for a card I am open for that and that would come under a different budget.

No amplification

Yep. When I first got into it I was against open cans and couldnt even understand how people loved them. But if you play in your own room, the sound is amazing and worth the "extra noise"

For inside the house headphones I will always be getting open ones.

I'm honestly not sure. None of the headphones I've used really match that. The HD600 are a nice all-rounder but you'd probably want to buy a decent amp with it.

Edit. And a source.

Well if you want good positional for gaming a x-fi despite their crappy drivers is still the best for positional audio in games, so I'd budget for cans+sound card.

Hmm I don't really play many FPS, but the sound is great. Do you mean they just don't have good positioning, soundstage type things for fps?
post #19 of 73
I'd go with a pair of DT770s but you'll need an amp to get the most out of them tho.
post #20 of 73
When I need a mic - I use these. But they get kind of hot....
