ATH M50X replacement?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Looking for a wireless replacement for my M50x. I've noticed the Steelseries 840 but I'm weary of sound quality.

 

How are bt headphones for latency? These headphones would mainly be used on my desktop where I game a lot so latency would be important (Steelseries use some proprietary thing which may/may not be good).

 

Anyone got any recommendations for a m50x replacement (so similar sound sig) but wireless and low latency?

I'm in the UK and ideally working with a budget around £200, but can go up to £250. Suggestions around £300 are fine since I may be able to get them on sale.

 

Thanks.

Latency isn't really a problem nowadays, it's mainly the sound quality that suffers with wireless headphones.

Enough for gaming? So would I be looking for something using bt 5 or would 4 suffice?

These look wired?... Did you mean the G933?

oh yeah, i mean that. I have to tell you that the Padding is slippery depending on your skin because the review that were done by LUKE in 2015 has the proofs for the slippery padding. Sound is good from their credit
