Hello everyone,

I suppose the thing I am looking for could be called headset or headphones, but I prefer to call them that way for now.

I heard a lot of bad things about headsets, that they are flimsily made, and don't have the sound quality of often much cheaper headphones, but then I heard there are some exceptions to that rule. And I was wondering if you are aware of some.

My budget is around 180 dollars (preferably under) ,and I am mainly looking for comfort and good build quality (so they wouldn't break on first accidental drop)

Thank you for your help.

Are you looking for a gaming headset or one for music? Do you want a wireless or wired?

I am not expert in the field of headsets, but I believe someone here on the board can provide you with something useful.

@ravenlight: Where can I get one?!

@wasabicurry: Well it will be used for both music and gaming, but I guess I would rather go for gaming headset. I don't care much about wireless/wired, whatever will be better for best price.

@detlik: I would say go search around on Amazon and Newegg. Additionally, read reviews from both professional and feedback sources.

I did find one that I enjoy.

In my experience, you can't go wrong with Sennheisers. My twelve year-old HD 490s just died on me, and I'm pretty sure it's my fault for rolling my chair over the cable for the like the thousandth time. I could probably replace the cable (it detaches) and they'd continue on just fine, but maybe it's time I bought something new.

@sinusoidal: I was considering Sennheiser PC 360, but I heard I will need good sound card with it...tempting, but I wouldn't be able to purchase on for quite some time...the sound card I mean.

Get a clip-on/desk-stand mic (personally I'd go with clip-on) and some real headphones.
