I might purchase these.
How good are these for immersive gaming on games such as Skyrim and the Witcher 3?
that's a strange question really
I have Sennheiser HD558s and the velour earcups are amazing
however the sound is just so mediocre
I need 'oomph' or something
well I guess then you are looking for closed ear headphones to block out outside sound, and for oomph you probably want something with deep defined bass.. for good bang for buck you might look at audio technica ATH-M50 or M50x which are amazing value and stupidly cheap second hand especially
you can also get velour earcups for the ATHs, but really headphones are a personal choice. good to listen to as many as you can to find what you like
I'll do that, I heard the ATHs are really nice.
m50 vs m50x?
either is great, I think the only difference is the detachable cable on the x ..might be worth it if you don't want a coiled cable and want a specific length for your gaming position
The cable is detachable so you can switch it out on the x.
I'll probably go with the X.
Thanks a lot!!
you won't be disappointed. they're practically invincible too so if you can find a second hand one go for it IMO :)
That is really a perfectly valid question.
There are headphones that are good and bad for gaming. Open backs (like HE-350) are usually better unless you're sharing room with someone else.
HE-350 cannot be compared to M50 on any aspect, it's a much better headphone.
Giving out bad/uninformed advice isn't doing anyone any service.
Take a look at the m40x. I honestly like them better than the m50x and they are cheaper.
It was a strange question because of the wording and lack of info, but when the dude went on to explain he wanted oomph and immersion it def sounded like open backed was not what he was looking for :)
