generally i prefer closed as there are people around me,

i have a budget of around 200$ for both a mic and a headset\headphones

and im from israel (currency is NIS)

 

out of curiosity, why are they so bad?

They have weak drivers and the microphone sounds like it should be strapped to a diver in Mariana's trench 

 

How are the studio headphone options over there? Would you be able to pick up a pair of k371s or DT770's + a USB mic or attachable mic in that budget?

I gotta say, both this and your previous comment made me laugh

 

in terms of selection im able to pick up far more than i expected though the k371s are not available (but there is always amazon though shipping prices are high nowadays) and likely almost everything besides an attachable mic.

but the price is jacked up by around 50$ sadly as the DT 770s + Attachable mic was my go to choice but its around 50-70$ above my price range. 

 

im thinking of either waiting for black friday or cyber monday for both and just using terrible 15$ earbuds in the meantime or getting just the DT 770's and the attachable mic later on.

 

i also remembered like an hour ago that we have a Blue Snowball we never used from like a year ago but its sort of broken so i might just send it back and replace it and just use that.

Also to specify, you want the 80ohm version of the DT 770's not the 250ohm since they are much harder to drive.
