View Full Version : Gaming Headphones..for game & music?

09-05-11, 10:40 AM

I'm going to hope I can post this here since it mainly involves headphones for gaming but with a slight twist..for listening to music as well.

I'm considering getting some closed headphones so to game with but seeing if any are capable of listening to music as well. I'm not expecting some top-of-the-line audio quality but something that will produce some decent clear sounds.

I know the likes of Turtle Beach and Sharkoon are standouts but I've seen some interesting models from Plantronics, Razer, Tritton, Raptor, Skullcandy, and even Sennheiser. I don't care to fork out some 200 smackers but I also know the old saying..you get what you paid for. Some of the TB models under $100 seem to have some decent reviews but again I expect it's for gaming only. So I was looking for some feedback if anyone has use the HP's for music as well. Thanks

You have to choose what you want the most first.

If you want 5.1 sound, just get the best $200 headphones that have 5.1 sound. They are not going to be that great for music, not bad either.

If you just want the best sound, then go for 2.0 sound. You can get really great headphones for $200, Sennheiser are good. If you want to go crazy check at head-fi.org
