Hey!

I would really like to know what (audiophile) headphones you guys can recommend to accompany a Vmoda Boompro mic (because I think they sound so nice).

I think I'd prefer open-back headphones for the bigger soundstage / directional audio and sound isolation is not a problem.

My budget is <200 euros total and I'll use it primarly for gaming and listening to music.

Also, if you know any better microphone solutions for around the same price, feel free to let me know.;)

Sidenote: I don't have a dedicated soundcard / DAC / Amp

Heyo loperaster09

If you're going a little cheap, something like M40X's would do you nicely. I've included some pads with them, since I personally find the stock ones like small "soft rocks".
They have detachable cable and should work nicely with the mic.

If you want to go a little higher something like the DT990's and another sort of mic would be great. It's pretty 50/50 whether you're going to like these or not. Some people love them others hate them (Personally I like them, but the highs are killing me). The high tones on these can be quite harsh on the ears, but none the less, they're great for the price. Although you'd need some DAC/AMP for them. The Fiio e10k is a good option.

If you'd like amazing mic quality and acceptable headphones, something like this might fancy you.

The Audio interface is amazing (I own it myself, running the AT2020). Has crystal clear sound, both on the DAC and the Phantom power section for the mic. You'll need a scissor arm for this though, but these are only like 10-20 buck depending on where you buy them.

A pop filter would also be nice for it :)

Hope this helped a little.

Hey True Buie!

Thanks for your elaborate answer! ;)

Unfortunately I already ordered a pair of Philips Fidelio X2s, because they were on a huge sale. They work together with the Vmoda Boompro. What do you think about the Fidelio X2s / how they compare with the Beyerdynamic DT990?

Anyway, that Focusrite mic looks really nice! If I decide I don't like the Vmoda boompro or they break after a while I'll definitely check them out!

The FIdellio X2's are also an great option. It's a "fun" pair of headphones, so they should do you nicely :)
Compared to the DT990's they're a little more bass heavy and emphasize more on the mids. The X2's have huge pads, which you've probably already noticed, and are therefore also amazingly comfy. Not to say the DT990's aren't, but the X2's are on another level IMO.

Personally I'm more to flat/neutral headphones, although this doesn't mean that I don't like the X2's just I prefer something like the Sennheiser HD600's instead. One of my friends have them and he's as happy as a pig in split.

Cheers.
