Hi everyone,

So I recently decided to switch from gaming headsets to mic and headphones set up.
I already have a mic but I am wanting to get some good quality headphones.
This is obviously going to be used for gaming but most of the times music

My budget is: $150 AUD

Thank you,

Heyo GodMikesBeats

Amazing to see you shift to the headphone realm. As for you there's some options. I'd probably say start with something like the Beyerdynamic DT770/DT990. These ae great headphones to start with. I know that they're a little over your budget, but trust me, you won't regret it if you purchase one of these.

DT770

DT990
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Beyerdynamic-DT990-PRO-Headphones-250/dp/B0011UB9CQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1506947744&sr=1-1&keywords=dt990

If that jsut isn't possible for you, maybe something like the Audio Technica ATH-M40X's with some HM5 pleather pads would do you nicely. These are a closed back headphone which is moderately cheap for that quality you get.

HM5 pleather pads

IF it's in your budget a DAC/AMP combo could do you good in this situation. SOmething like this Fiio e10k is a cool lil' one.

Hope this helped a little.
Cheers
