Best $100 headphones? Not headset
Apr 22, 2013, 1:31 PM
Hello community and thanks in advance for all responses.
i know almost nuthing about sound but want to get the most out of my gaming so i figured id spend a lil money on some good headphones.
I have a soundblaster z and am wondering what to pair it with headphone wise for some good gaming.
right now i been told either sennheiser hd280's or Audio Technica ATH-A700X's
i think sennheiser a lil cheaper are the ATH's woth the extra 30$
Thanx again everyone

The Senheiser HD25 have so far been by far the best headphones I've ever owned.

There isn't really a "best" set of headphones, audio is subjective.
A good pair is the AD700:

Go with the open unless you want to get audio to yourself and not bother others.

I have not tried the Sennheiser HD 25's, only more expensive models from them, but I do know the AT ones are great for gaming.
Sorry I can't me much help regarding those specific ones. Should be fine for music though.
