No doubt santa will bring me some nice headphones this christmas.  I wonder if you could offer some advice ,thoughts and opinions on something suitable. Ill list some details to narrow it down.

 

  • budget £100
  • connection jack 3.5mm
  • noise cancelling
  • over ear
  • comfort a must as I wear glasses
  • useage: primarily gaming but also some movies and music.

 

Not too bothered about looking hip or cool and I dont need a headset just headphones! If you have some ideas/reccommendations please feel free. thanks for your help!

Hm, perhaps something from Sennheiser? They have pretty good headphones.

I did check these out a few days ago and they look really slick its just they weigh 1/3 of a Kilo and they are perhaps a little too precision in audio terms for most of my audio format. maybe if i upgrade my sound card too.

 

what do you make of these?

Creative aurvana Live are excellent headphones, £50 and the sound quality is better than a lot of the more expensive ones. Plus they are really comfortable

They do look damned good for the moeny they just lack that noise cancelling feature im looking for. Allthought the V2 ones at £79.99 look to have much better external sound supression but again without the actual engineering. The noise cancelling is important because 1.5 m away is a 42 inch TV and big speakers and my wife likes to watch utter guff at high volume!

I find that the Aurvana's are actually quite good at blocking the sound. Even though they offer no "Noise cancellation technology" the ear cups still do block a lot of outwards sound.

Decided to order some Audio Technica ATH MX50x's and soem aftermarket leather ear pads. my sound card wil drive them perfectly and even though they dont look very fancy I hear for the money the audio is second to none.

thanks to all for the help and advice.
