New Headphones

Postby WMain00 » Sat Jul 07, 2007 1:22 pm

I'm interested in picking up new headphones for either my PC or my x-box 360. I don't really care about whether a mic is on it or not as i rarely use the mic in games. I hear (no pun intended :P) that Sennheiser are the best and am wondering what i should look for. I'm definitely looking for the best in sound quality as well as comfort. Price range is £50+

Sennheiser usually do the best, but I'd have a look at some of the things that Bose are offering as well

Problem so far i've seen is that i've found what is supposed to be really good Sennheisers, but it has a 6.35mm jack. And i think it would be an absolute nightmare trying to reconvert it all if i wanted to plug into my x-box 360.

EDIT: Actually i suppose it wouldn't be that bad. Just saw on Maplins that there is an equivalent adaptor for 6.35mm when using the VGA cable.

? All Sennheiser come with a screw on larger plug, you unscrew it and it reveals a 3.5mm jack.

Bose are shit btw, lots of money for very little in terms of good sound quality.


Your price range is ideal for the Sennheiser HD485, light, comfortable, superior audio quality compared to anything else in this price range.

The HD280 pro are the alternative but they lack authority in the mid-range and the soundstage is off slightly because they are closed back design.

The 485 has minimal sound leakage at higher volumes though but you will be able to hear outside noise.

Did you get Sennheisers with removable cables? they have a 3.5mm jack on both ends, one plugs into the left headphone, the other into thepc/amp/tv/mp3 player etc - all mine have and the larger adapter is a screw in one which screws into the 3.5mm jack.
