I have recently been looking for headphones to be used almost exclusively for gaming and have narrowed down a few options and how much they will cost: Superlux HD 668B plus velour pads- $70 Superlux HD 681 evo- $70 Philips SHP9500- $95
Which of these would be the best or rather the best value for money (eg. are the philips worth the extra $) for gaming (soundstage, positional accuracy, mids and treble and also comfort) Any opinions are greatly appreciated and i am open to other options as i am sure there are plenty out there, my budget is $100 and i would like them to have a detachable cable.
I don't have any of these but I was super close to buying the 681 evo.
In the end some other headphones showed up on massdrop. What I would say is check out reviews of these and see which you like better. And I know at least one person has the 681 evos around here. Maybe a forum search too would not hurt.
Thanks Zibob, I have been looking at reviews but ill keep looking at more and search the forums. Yeah Third mortal, I thought the philips was better but I wasnt sure if it was worth extra money. Thanks for the advice. How is the soundstage and positional accuracy with the philips?
