    I heard hyperx cloud flight I heard it’s comfortable but not as durable but it’s wireless so that’s a plus. But I rather get a sennenheiser if you’re alright with no mic.

    :eek:

    You guys spend quite a lot on headphones. I usually buy Sades Headphones which are usually $15-30 at most. I personally wouldn't spend that much unless my main job is a DJ, musician, sound artist, or etc.

    The Sades Headphones work fairly well for me since it does have clear sound, a mic for gaming, a sturdy cable, and it is long lasting. My oldest headphone lasted about 7+ years.

    MMX 300 would be perfect but would use up your entire budget. Its definitely worth it though. Hyperx Cloud Alpha is good as well. Does it have to be a Headset? Or would Mic and Headphone be ok too?

    • Sony mdr-xb950b1 or mdr-xb950n1 (both are base heavy Bluetooth headphones with excellent sound quality)
    • Beyerdynamic dt 990 pro
    • Ath m50x
    All these are on little expensive side but if you consider their sound quality then they are worth it but if you're just looking for a cheap headphone just for casual listening and don't care about sound quality then there are plenty of cheaper sennheiser headphones which can be good for you.

    If you liked your old ones then just fix them. Use a solder to replace the wires

    U guys really rich, before i was using headphones about 15 euro, but when my uncle gifted me 2 sets of Logitech G430, i was using them, about 5 years. Nice sound, mic, vowen cable, but they are SO FRAGILE. Overtime, plastic parts break themself apart ><. I'm fixing them with glue pistol :D

    I'm not sure about current prices or market availability but I rarely get a chance to promote the pair I want the most

    Just be aware that many have reported the HyperX Cloud Alpha to have a weak mic, I had that same issue when I got it, but fixed it with an Equalizer program and removing the foam, although removing the foam introduces the problem of noise cancellation as the mic will pick up what you hear fairly well.

    Other than that it's decently lightweight and it has good space for your ears for a rounded earmuff.

    i use the sennheiser gsp 350. they're a bit expensive, heavy/bulky, and sound quality for music isn't quite as good as i'd like (it's not really bad, but there's a noticeable difference. dunno if later models fixed that), but it's become such a chore to find a decent pair of behind the ears so i eventually just had to give up on 'em and all the other normal ones i've gotten either had cheap joints or really stiff headbands that eventually snapped somewhere after 4-6 months, tops. been using my current pair for about 2 years, and there's not been any stress marks or bad creaking. the cord's pretty long as well. had to use an extension cable for most of my other ones cause they'd barely get across my desk. granted, a lot of that's because the tower has to go in a rather inconvenient location due to bad design, but a long cable is still quite nice.

    Sony MDR-7506 if you want a classic feel. Since it's an old model, you can easily find replacement parts on the internet
