I bought the Skullcandy Crushers thinking it was a good idea and thinking that they were good for gaming, but I am not satisfied with them, so I was wondering if you guys can recommend me some good headphones for gaming... I was thinking about the akg k7xx, but i think they're way over my budget so are the Superlux HD-668 B good for gaming? Because I watched some reviews and they sure look to be good...

hd518 or hd558 are great choices.

the 668b is a good budget choice but i'd take the 558 over it.

the m50x has a very tiny soundstage which makes it not quite so ideal for gaming. not that sound is bad, just soundstage is not what most gamers want (wider is better)

If you are on a budget sennheiser HD 558... got a soundcard or a DAC? Beyerdynamics DT 770 or what I am currently sporting aiudio techninca ATH- m50x... steer clear of skullcandy they are rubbish and shit build quality..

So i should buy the sennheiser HD 558?
I dunno I think I'll stick to the skullcandy's until I have enough money to buy the ath-M50x...

Well the elements of the sennheiser game headsets are nearly identical to the HD 558... it is a real good entry level choice. Then if you want better audio experience go for a DAC or sound card and the DT770 80ohms

The sennheiser ones. The audio technica ones are only comfortable if you replace the pads. I bought the replacement pads for the 840 shure. The AKG I haven't tried.

i would get the hd558 since you do not need any amplifier and its a more general use product a bit better for gaming than the m50. the k7xx is a nice can if you dont mind budgeting for an amp.
