Hi to all. My old headphones broke and i'm in the market for a pair that are 200 euro or below. I have a separate mic for my xbox so i have no need for one on the headphones. I
would like to be able to hear footsteps and such in games like COD. I would like the headphones to also sound good listening to music i all mainly listen to pop. I have no idea about bass and mids and such. I am not an audiophile at all but can still tell the difference between shite headphones and good headphones. If they are available on amazon uk that would be great as they have free super saver delivery to ireland. All suggestions and recommendations will be welcomed and greatly appreciated!

You could go with Tritton Detonators, they have good drivers, a detachable mic and a 3.5mm headphone jack included. Also come in way under the 200 Euro price you said. Have a look:

Or if you're intent on spending loads of money, you could get Tritton Warheads:

Hope this helps :D.

Thanks for the reply. While I'm not going to spend money the sake of spending money is there a notable difference between the two? I don't really want wireless either if I was going to buy the better model if there a wired version? Anyway thanks again for your help.

Sorry for the late response! There would be a fairly noticeable difference as the Warheads are 7.1, but the Detonators are fantastic. I have a pair of Turtle Beach X12s and they are also great, but they don't offer the versatility of the Detonators.

In response to the 2nd part, the Warheads are the best in the Tritton line, and there is no better wired Tritton headset. You could look at Astro A50s, although I think they are out of your price range.

If I were deciding, I would probably get the Detonators and save a lot of money, while also having some fantastic headphones, but of course it's up to you!

Hope this helps :D.
