That was my thought... Still, these look pretty good for offline. Hot.

think play.com are having you on if they suggest they are gaming headphones. Intro audiophile and as pointed out above no mic.

they get pretty good reviews here, just change the desfrition and remove the gaming bit imo.

get goldring ns1000 from play best set of cans this side of £150.
#5
These are all-purpose headphones, very good quality and a bargain at that price.
#6
I get the impression that 'gaming' headphones are normally geared towards a bassier sound signature, rather than being a headset.

i know!

My god thats the first thing i thought!!! "wtf no MIC, hello isnt this 2010!!!!!) cold for that resaon. only a mute would vote hot.

The open design of these headphones will let a lot of sound in and out, so they're not good if you need to be quiet. Just get a clip on mic, which will cost around £5 or something. I don't know why these are "Gaming Headphones" anyway because they are normally sold as mid range audiophile headphones, but at least with these you know you're paying for quality instead of paying for 5.1 surround in ear superleet get 100% more headshots gaming headsets at double the price, yes im looking at you razer, steelseries and roccat...

I have the HD555's they cost me £60 around a year ago, but ive stopped using them because i needed a pair of closed headphones, which i now have and prefer for gaming.

Excellent value at £50 but definitely not the best in that price range.
#13
What would be the best headphones for playing games? For best sound, crispness etc... Not overly fussed about having a mic as i dont be online much but if there was as good a set with a mic id be interested. dont really wanna spend more than £50. What are the turtle beach like?
#14
what kazuk says is on the money.

for gaming headphones then there are tons of reviews. I think a mic is pretty important if you ever try online gaming and a good mic at that. Teamspeak and ventrilo make gaming plus ofc there is skype. Long term comfort is very important, you cna decide if you want all the 5.1 surround sound stuiff.

Sennheiser are the ones I like, steelseries cyberia, but there are plenty of reviews. Speedlink medusas. The new Creative ones have got great reviews and better thna the best of the sennherisers. The quality of sound will also depend on how good your soundcard is as well.
#15
Frankly most of the other "gaming" headsets with mics are usually of very poor sound quality and just sell because of their brand names. I always have used and will always recommend to get separate headphones and just get whatever cheap mic you can get hold of. Will usually blow any of those silly headsets out the water.
#16
Mics are absent from audiophile level headphones for a reason, to minimize noise so that the best audio quality can be delivered.
If you need a mic, get a cheap clip on from dealextreme, they're probably a quid or 2 shipped. Much more convenient too if the mic breaks, you dont have to send your whole headphone away for repairs, you can just buy another cheapo one.

Agreed - I use Sennheiser HD595s and a stereo array microphone for gaming - you can get much better quality sound and recording buying separately, than using merged ones from Logitech etc.

please tell me they are not wasting away because you dont like gaming with them ???

Well, guess it's just me with the opinion that Sennheiser's are massively overrated.
I've never been pleased with the sound quality of any of their can's that I've tried.

ordered 3's, great price :D

I don't think there's any mainstream brands that make headphones better than Sennheiser's.

There are lots of obscure headphone brands that those over at head-fi.org rant and rave over but they are normally very expensive!

Are you experimenting with ATI’s new EarFinity technology? :)
#24
it all depends on which model. I play a lot online and the mosy comfy ive used are sennheisers. counts for a lot if its an 8hr session and ur using teamspeak. they have some turkeys as well so all heaphones from one manufacturer are not good, also the fact of whether you them to be closed is pretty importnat as well.
#25
as said above the goldring ns1000's are the best headphones i have ever bought and they only cost £50 on play.com .
#26
get the logitech g35 ...7.1 surround sound headset!
#27
hello? testing 1-2-1-2?

I use HD595s for gaming, movies and music on my laptop / xbox / ps3 they are awesome and just seem to get better as time goes on.

I would recommend them to anyone and just get a clip on mike. I have tried a few other 'gaming' headsets that friends have bought (turtle etc), they are uncomfortable and the supposed '5.1' is not better than the Senheissers which have depth, clarity and plenty of spatial sound.

Think HD595s going for about £80 these days. Watching Blurays on laptop is utterly amazing :thumbsup:
