Hi,

I am currently looking for good quality headphones that I can use for gaming at a price range of around 200 Australian Dollars. All help is appreciated.

If you have an external mic. Then you should look at these.

More fun and bassy headphones:

More spacious sound and wider soundstage:

https://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD-599-Open-Headphone/dp/B01L1IICR2/ref=sr_1_4?crid=2P1A81CXG6QG1&dchild=1&keywords=sennheiser+headphones&qid=1589978756&sprefix=sennheiser%2Caps%2C255&sr=8-4

These would be my choices. Others might think different. My personal favourite are the dt 990 pro or dt 770 pro. They have good soundstage. No stupid 7.1 surround gimmick. And most importantly a fun sound. Audiophiles will most definitly say that a flat and neutral sound is the best. But not really for gaming since you want a fun sound when you are gaming. You don't need an amp if you have a good soundcard on your mobo. Me personally I have an alc1220 on my motherboard. But an amp could be necessary if you want really loud volume. Mine are at 50% and that is enough for me.

 

PM or DM me if you have any questions about audio or about your PC.

My PC specs & audio gear

CPU > Intel core i7 9700k, GPU > RTX 2070 8gb, RAM > Corsair Vengance 2x8gb 3000mhz, Motherboard > Z390 Gigabyte Aorus Pro Wifi, Storage > 1TB HDD & 2pcs of 500gb M2 SSDs, Cooling > H100I Corsair Platinum, PSU > Corsair RM750X V2

🎧Current Audio Setup For Gaming/Music🎧

Soundblaster AE-9 Soundcard

The T.bone SC400 XLR mic

Other peripherals

Keyboard > Razer Chroma v2 Orange Switches

Mouse > Cooler Master MM711, had a G502 HERO but was too heavy for my liking.

Why spend thousands on peripherals and your PC and forget one of the most important things... Audio.

Read this post if you want a "gaming" headset ;)

I would heavily go against the m50x for gaming. It's lack of any Soundstage or imaging prowess makes it stand out for baking awful for the application of gaming. And frankly it's overpriced for what it is. 

Feel free to send me a DM for further or general questions.
