Best Headphones from Best Buy?

I need some GREAT headphones for Gaming/MP3, but mostly gaming on my computer system. The only stipulation is that the headphones must be from best buy. why? Because I work there and can use my discount!

Now I looked through some archived posts here and at some other headphone review sites.

I think the Seinheisser 570 came out on top from the list here


Any opinions?

Yep given those options definately get the Sennheiser.

Too bad they don't sell Grado, those are really nice

This must be a joke. Right?

You're looking for headphone recommendations, and you work at the store?

Yeah, this must be another joke about the help at BestBuy.

I have the Sennheiser 570's, and love them.

The biggest problem is that if you're planning on using them in a noisy environment, look elsewhere. They're open air, and as such, you're going to hear noise around you as well as your music.
If you're planning on using them strictly indoors and in relatively quiet areas, they're hard to beat.

They are, in addition, the most comfortable set of cans I've ever owned.

Assuming qpid is a guy

Just cause he works at Best Buy he should know about headphones?

I guess just cause he works there he should also know which is the best mini vacuum, lady's shaver and coffee filter or whatever other lame crap they sell!

Yeah Best Buy sucks, but not because of the employees, because of the customers like you that expect them to know everything you don't! Anyway........

Thank you

Unfortunately I was absent when the CEO of Best Buy came to each individual store and told all employees in every department to know everything about all departments or you're fired.

I work in the computer department, can I help you with anything?

Re: Best Headphones from Best Buy?

the audio quality of senheisers hd 180 over-ear headphone is just awesome. it is portable, gives powerful sound with great bass, and of course very durable too. thanks admin for the suggestion.

Wow, 16 year bump. The OP probably has gone through 8 pairs of headphones by now
