Looking for Headphones upgrade-something that wont increase the rate of my hair loss xD

Currently using Sennheiser Game One+Xonar DGX 5.1
The Headphones sound/microphone perfect for my needs. but! the thing that i hate the most is that when i put them on my head they are not comfortable

I'm not bold yet xD but im sure i will be in few years but i also feel like the Game One when resting on my hair messes it up ! like blocking it badly or something like that(hard to explain)


bottom line-I'm looking for a new headphones that will be considered an upgrade over mine or at the same level

i prefer to have Microphone built in but i guess i can buy one seperate if needed


Most important thing- i want them to be super comfort and if possible - dont rest on my head? maybe on my ears only? maybe the back of my head? maybe somehow mid head but not touching it exactly...


Black friday and Cyber monday coming soon-its great time for an upgrade...
i also dont mind upgrading my Sound card if needed

If headphones could contribute to hair loss there would already be a correlation (from professions that wear them all the time like sound engineers) and there isn't. Your hair will fall out (and start growing out of your nose and ears instead) whatever you do - either accept it or get a wig

If you want over/on ear headphones that don't rest on the head at the headband they'll need a very high clamping force to stay in place and it becomes uncomfortable. Have you looked into IEM's?

yeah no running from that hair loss i know!

in terms of audio quality im happy with the game one sound in music/gaming !


btw, in modern motherboards like lets say ASUS z390 , many boards come with abuilt in audio card- is it good compared to the xonar dgx?


and what IEM's?

lol Thank you

@OP - Audio-Technica ATH-M50x is pretty great, but the cups are not the most comfortable ones. But with Brainwavz ear pads, its incredibly comfortable with very slight degradation in audio quality

Well it depends what triggered the hair loss, for me it was stress and bad washing habits(too hot ~40c and shampooing too often), it can depend on other factors as well. But if its genetic, you're out of luck.

The sennheiser game one is already fairly comfy, where would you like to improve? top of the head or clamping?

If you are wanting super comfy, not set on your head type, I would recommend some Audio Technicas. I had an old pair of ATH- A700, no longer made. The 3-D wing support system takes the load off of the top of your head and very comfortable. Very detailed sound signature, mine were a little bass light for my taste.

I've got a pair of ATH-M50X and with both the default pads and with replacement Brainwavz pads they are the opposite of comfortable, and they don't really even sound that good for the price they cost.

SHP9500s are the most comfortable pair of headphones I own, but they are low-end-anemic. My Fidelio X2s are almost as comfortable and actually have low end.
