Could someone recommend me a comfortable set of headphones under $75. Comfort is my main goal here, as they will primarily be used for just playing games and listening to youtube vids. I used to own a crappy $30 pair of headphones made by Aiwa Link I could wear these for hours at a time and have not been able to find something that I could say the same of. Could anyone recommend a really comfy set of headphones?

^^ Agree, the Steelseries Siberia v2's are awesome headphones, and super-comfortable for long stretches of gaming / listening. If you can spend the extra $$ I would definitely consider them.

Definitely audio-technica headphones from the A or AD series. I have A500s myself and they're super comfy. I can wear them for upwards of 10 hours (they're comfortable past that point too, I just never wore them for longer than that
).

I noticed these have a 90 day warranty. How is the company with replacing or fixing if after the 90 days something happens?

Also I've never shopped from this online site, can anyone confirm this is a reputable company?

What do you guys think about the Sennheiser HD201? Link From my 15 minutes of research on OCN they seem to be from a good brand, just their lowest end model. They look really comfortable, and that's what I'm going for primarily rather than sound quality.

I use SteelSeries 5H v2 USB and absolutely love them. I upgraded to them from my old Siberia headset because they kept slipping off. I've taken the headset on 8hr flights and they never got uncomfortable. Only problem is that they are $100 for the non-usb model and $120 with the usb soundcard. Worth every penny though, in my opinion.

Sounds pretty good to me. http://www.resellerratings.com/store/BuyDig_Beachtr

I think the AD700's are a great choice, if you're looking for something a little cheaper I'd also recommend the Jvc harx700. I have them and love them

The RX700's are sealed headphones, meaning your ears will get a little hot, itchy, and possibly sweaty after wearing them for a long time. Plus, they have pleather pads, which tend to get itchy after a while too.

Honestly, comfort wise, nothing get mores comfy than the AD700's for the price. Plus they're open headphones, they use velour pads (soft and fuzzy), and the headphones sit on top of your head, rather than clamping onto your ears. You can still shake your head around quite a bit and they won't fall off or move.

I do, and yeah, they're extremely comfortable. Sound great too.
