I've been using these headphones for over a year now ( with a Sound Blaster E5 ) and if i'm going to be honest Wowie. the headphones are really good if you like to manually tweak your own sound to your liking. in open environment games (hunting, sandbox, etc) where its just you and the game 10/10 and the open back shows and you get completely immersed. ( also lo-fi with a strong bass preset is a def try, but might be overpowering to some people)
BIG fat But -
here is where the but comes in. the only downfall of these headphones i can see for long term use is that the band that is supposed to support them and keep them in place is very cheap and after their worn they will start to droop and it's sad. these headphones i use for everything and 95% of the time i have to wear a hat to keep them from drooping down. an ez fix someone else found is using thick rubber bands and that's nice. but this just shouldn't be a problem. ( also i've been very lucky to never run into any soldering problems and only had a bad cable cause of long term use )
for the price $200 Leafs isn't that bad for audiophile headphones so everyone in this forum needs to stop complaining about the price >:( why buy them then complain about the price. these headphones and others like it aren't going to be cheap because they are investments and for people that love audio. not just another pair of headphones. when you buy into these don't assume its plug and play. GET A DAC / AMP
now would i recommend these to pro gamers or people trying to go pro that's a no. why?
cause not only are you spending $200 Stones on headphones but you will and i mean will need to GET A DAC / AMP and that'll run you another $100 - 300 Bones depending on your whale status. although i have been using these for competitive gameplay and it's been awesome i think most people would rather just get what these big pro gamer streamers have which are closed back plug and play. again i will state these are for people that love tinkering with their settings like i do.
Final Thoughts -
now if i remove the small cons of these headphones and if your bank is looking nice then... YES buy . are you kidding me only $200 Coins DUH. getting a good dac / amp with these and jamming out to your favorite tunes or even playing Minecraft with the boys you will get instantly immersed in your own world. 9/10
*ps - please please please don't just read this and think you will have the same experience as i have had with them and not think and buy. please do your research before buying ANY audiophile headphones. there is nothing worse than someone new getting into audiophile headphones and getting there entire experience getting ruined because they didn't do their research.
