Descent headphones for music and casual gaming

HI,

I need a headphone for good hard rock and bass music.
And some casual gaming. My budget is $100.

I was searching some and get this: is this good?
Sennheiser HD 215 II Headphone
Sennheiser HD 449 Headphone

Or Roccat Kave Solid 5.1

  1. Best answer
    We are often asked, “Which are the best headphones?”
    WELL, the best headphones sound better than ANY speakers. AND these will run on less power than speakers do, too. You can plug them directly into the computer…and get great sound quality.

    IMHO The best headphones are made by STAX.

    Once you see and hear STAX, you will realize that ALL other headphones are LESS than Stax. Now see what you can get, based on your own budget.
    Maybe you don’t have $3000.00 to spend on headphones? Well, there are other alternatives that sound pretty darn good. But, anything less than STAX is a compromise.

    IMHO Sennheiser: probably the second best choice, if you don’t have $3000.00!

    The BEST headphones cover the entire ear, like a CUP.
    ANY headphone that presses against the ear will cause discomfort and PAIN. You have been warned.

    VISIT your local hi fi shop and TRY for yourself, several different headphones.
    Reviews mean nothing, compared to your OWN TASTE.
    DO NOT allow a salesperson to influence your choices. DO NOT allow reviews on the internet, to influence your taste in sound quality.
    DECIDE what is best YOURSELF. TRY first, then BUY.
  2. sennheiser makes excellent headsets and it's rare to find one that disappoints. I'd recommend either of those models over the kave

    ATH-M50 is another excellent midrange model, but its price just jumped so you may want to wait for it to drop again

    happy listening :)
