Hi, I was thinking about upgrading my headphones but don't really know what to buy or even if it's worth upgrading. At the moment i have the COWIN E7 headset. I will mainly use the headphones for PC gaming but I also would like to have good quality for videos, music and stuff like that. Anything under £50 will be fine but I can stretch to around 70-80ish if necessary. (Use a USB desktop mic so I don't need in built mic in the headphones)

The CB 1s are rated very well for sound quality but build quality isn't very good. It's a solid choice at that price though. The Philips SHP9500 are another solid contender. Not sure about price or availability in the UK but they are $50 at newegg.

I'd advise against 'multichannel gaming' headsets or headphones.

Question from mrpony48 : "Headphone upgrade. Help?"

so I've been wanting to upgrade my headphones for a while but not sure if it is worth it. I have the COWIN E7 headset at the moment and was looking at the Superlux HD668B and the Logitech G430 as upgrade contenders. (I USe a usb Mic So No Need For inbuilt Mic.

So Is it worth upgrading in the first place?

And if so Superlu x HD668B V.S. Logitech G430?

Also if You Have Any Other Ideas Please Let Me Know.
