Hey guys. I’m in the market for an over the ear set of headphones and I have it narrowed down to 3 contenders. Any help and advice is appreciated.
I’ll be using them for console gaming, movie and video watching and for music listening. All 3 are around $100 or less, so that’s not an issue. I’m just looking for user experience.
Audio Technica ATH-M50
These I’m leaning towards. Most of what I read on other forums point to these having the best sound quality. But none of them really mention these as being used under my applications (they’re used for mostly mixing and editing).
Sony MDR 7506
I know these are just the pro version of the V6’s but I prefer to pay the bit extra for the better warranty. These are an industry standard from what I’ve read and have a reputation for being very durable. That’s important, but sound quality is more important. I was originally going to go for these until I read around.
Sennheiser HD-280 PRO
Nothing really stands out but a lot of people seem to have these and are happy with them. Also, they’re the cheapest of the 3.
So what do you guys think?
I posted this over at the notebookreview forums as well.
