There's a whole new horizon coming on with headphone technology.

I'm caught between wanting good sound but being reluctant to put much money on the table.

Not sure what I should get.

So I can't remember if I've mentioned it, but I've been using these for strictly PC gaming and they are fantastic

It's so free'ing using wireless headphones when you game because you're not being held down by a cord. It's nice to be able to walk around and not have to take them off. Highly recommended if you're looking for a really nice and comfortable wireless headset for PC.

If you want good sound quality don't get headset or wireless.

Having a device do multiple things is an excuse to:

a. Make it cost more

b. Allow it to be bad at one of those things

Here is a headphone recommendation thingy made by the headphones subreddit

https://sites.google.com/view/headphoneadvice/home

This should give you ideas that you can then further research.

If you want a better soundstage open back is the way to go. These generally aren't the best while in public, there you'd want closed back or IEM.

Headphone jack on my phone is ****ed up (biggest LG V20 flaw, basically love everything else about my phone), so I opted for some bluetooth headphones. There's nothing more aggravating than a ****ed up headphones jack, man. It'll be a bit of a learning curve remembering to charge them, but they have good sound, they have the ergonomic fit that I like, and the freed up cord was more liberating than I expected. Little pricy for these but I'd recommend it. Will report back when they **** out--life in Frownland's pockets ain't easy.

I kinda want to upgrade my HD600s to HD800 but I lack money.

I should set up a gofundme.

Bought these yesterday. Not very pricey at all, but they're a step up from my previous pair for sure.



JBL T500, I think. On-ear. More bass and detail than my previous pair, plus they close tighter around the ears so they close more sound out.
My pair is wired.

I use the Sennheiser Urbanite on-ears; decent sound, but not the best value. Bought them a few months ago when I didn't know much about audio. Now I have my eyes set on Beyerdynamic's 250 ohm DT 880.

I'll probably give the Urbanites to a family member -- they're just too uncomfortable. Also V-shaped, which isn't the sort of sound signature I like best.
