    Looking for a pair of headphones for gaming. I want something that cuts out pretty much all sound if possible. Not too much money.

    Something that I can use with my PS4, Vita, 3DS, and possibly with my iPhone. I need something that goes over my ears, can't stand the inner earbuds.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for what they currently use?

    I use Sennheiser HD 280 Pro headphones. They go over the ear, but don't have noise cancelling devices. Picked them up for $75 on sale at my local Guitar Center, they regularly go for $100. Pretty good headphones for the price.

    I used to have Bose QuietComfort noise cancelling headphones, and they were great, but they got busted during my last move. I don't know if you want to blow $300 on cans though.

    The Bushmills x Grado Labs Headphone are awesome!

    They are much money and i have no idea about the quality but with these you will be the king of hipsters and that is priceless.

    $300 is way too much for something I'll just break in 6 months if past experience holds. I'll look at the others though.

    @poonz: They really need to fix this text field for the forums...it's kind of wonky.

    But anyway, these are the ones you're looking for man. Only $100, and even then headphones don't get much better regardless of price.

    Also you can get a whole kit if you're feeling spiffy, but you really only need the cans.

    It's a shame you can't handle inner ears, because these are always 60-80% off and the best bargain on the internet. I've made sure to have a pair close by at all times for nearly a decade now.

    I'm going to echo @doctorchimp and say the Audio-Technicas. Saw them on sale today for $90. Bought a pair of them last month and they are fantastic.

    I break headphones all the time, these ones I swear to god are immortal. They also sound really good and pretty much cancel all other sounds.

    On a tangent:

    Does anyone know how to soften a cloth headphone cable? I have a pair of ATH-EM7s that I had put away for a few years, and now the cable is all stiff and hard to manage.

    I currently have a Shure SRH440. About 80 bucks and great quality. Cord can extend like 3 metres (9 feet) as well. Only problem is that they don't block out sound too well.

    Bose QC3's.

    Yeah they were expensive, but they're actually pretty great. Had them for 4 years now so in the long run saved cash. (I was buying a $30-50$ pair at least once or twice a year)

    Of course they were expensive, you paid for a name.
