Question Best IEM/earbuds incl mic for FPS gaming

Jun 27, 2019
Hi all,

I'm wondering if you could give me any tips on getting IEMs or earbuds specifically for competitive FPS gaming. I realize that good quality headphones are preferred for FPS and I own a pair of AT AD900x, but due to medical issues with increased pressure inside my skull I can only wear these for very limited spans of time.

These IEMs/earbuds would need to include a mic and I'll be using them with a mixamp. Since it's specifically for FPS gaming, I'm looking for clear mids and highs (in order to hear footsteps) as well as (relatively) good positional audio and a wide soundstage (which is realize is very difficult with earbuds). Also, my budget is roughly €100.

I'm aware that I won't be able to get a really good set of buds/IEMs for that price, but I'm looking for the best within that price range on those specific characteristics that matter for FPS.

Thanks in advance!
