Is 60mm neodymium better than 50mm neodymium for gaming?

Hey, I was just wondering if Versus.com is reliable because I’m deciding whether or not to buy a Asus ROG Strix Wireless headset.

I’m trying to decide between Asus ROG Strix Wireless and Corsair HS70. The Asus is 60 while the HS70 is 50. Which one will cover my ears better and cut out ambient sounds (pots and pans)? Which one just sounds better?

No one knows how they will fit over your ears... I have my own ears. Read the reviews and make your decision based off that. Bigger isnt always better and more expensive isnt always nicer

In general, which will cover average sized ears and block out ambient sounds

Whichever one is closed back, if either, will block out sounds better, but only actual noise cancelling headphones will do it well. The size of the driver also doesn’t determine the size of the ear cup, so the smaller driver could have a bigger cup, or vice versa

Versus.com says that the Strix has active noise canceling. Should I believe it?

What Asus webpage says? Shouldn't the manufacturer's site be the first source of technical information?

Active noise canceling is a feature that isn't the same for every product that mentions it. How well the feature is implemented varies between products so you should look at reviews and benchmarks to see if the feature is good -- specs ripped off of a manufacturer's page compared without any testing like that on Versus.com isn't going to paint an accurate or detailed picture of how good or bad a product actually is. 

Keep in mind that the noise canceling is guaranteed to be imperfect like any other feature on any other product.

But it also says it doesn’t have Dolby which I know it does. You say that Versus tests everything so should I believe it?

That's the opposite of what I said.

Yeah I just realized that. I think I’ll go for the 60mm because of the reviews.
