    Why do you love me?

    [​IMG]

    I'm doing this to help increase headphone awareness.

    How do I enter?

    Must Live in the United States.
    Must own a PC Gaming headset (Logitech, Razer, Corsair, steelseries, etc)
    Reply in this thread with a picture of your headset and why you want a pair of Sennheiser HD518.
    Contest will end when I have selected the three best answers.

    Why The Sennheiser HD518?

    The Sennheiser HD518 is one of my favourite entry level headphones. it's lightweight with very little caliper pressure. the earpads and headband are made out of cloth. the cable is single sided entry and detachable. the angled drivers are the same ones used in the Sennheiser HD598 ($249 MSRP)

    Sennheiser sells replacement cables, earpads and headbands for the Sennheiser HD518.

    Do I need a Headphone Amplifier?

    No

    What About The Microphone on my Headset?

    I recommend the Antlion Modmic or Blue Snowball

    Thank You

    please thank theJesus for helping me ship these headphones and TechPowerUp's Audio Editor Frederik S who doesn't get enough recognition.

    Happy to pay postage to the UK if I may enter
    Roccat Kave 5.1, entering because my mic is broken and will be buying a snowball iCE very soon with a pop filter. I started streaming on twitch a week ago, sound might be nice.

    Amazing contest! When I get home I will take a pic of the Astro A40 headset and AMP I use. :respect:

    edit: uh, does it have to be a pic of my actual headset or can it be a stock pic like coon posted?
    BumbleBee says thanks.

    Same as Rhino, I will post when I get home.

    I am using a Corsair Vengeance 2000 headset. It works well for gaming, but the midrange is standard and the low end is pretty flat.

    a real picture would be nice. you don't need to write your name on a piece of paper or anything.

    just remember you need to tell me why you would like a pair of the Sennheiser HD518 :)
    Easy Rhino says thanks.

    you want to see my headphones?

    [​IMG]

    Currently I have a set of Razer Carcharias, and I've been happy with them, but I have never had a "actual" good pair of headphones, that's why I would like to have a pair of these Sennheisers
    RCoon and manofthem say thanks.

    Currently using Corsair Vengeance 2000's and have had nothing but trouble after the first year. The wireless usb dongle causes the audio to go out if it gets nudged even a little, the headset refuses to charge on occasion, often friends tell me i sound robotic and i have to disconnect and reconnect multiple times before i sound normal. And I have resorted to using my PS4 controller's charging cable to charge them because the original included charging cable no longer works. I could definitely go for a good quality pair of wired headphones with excellent audio quality as a change from my vengeance 2000's and previously my Tritton AX 720's. My Snapshot1.jpg
    Also broke college student life.

    I really could use this. My Roccat Kave is rather uncomfortable. Literally leaving indents on my scalp when I wear them just from it resting on my head. I was originally looking at the HD 280 Pro last year but I was talked into getting a Kave. I regret it. I had to sell a bunch of stuff and save for months for a plane ticket so I haven't had any chance to buy any new computer stuff for quite some time. I had $27 left in the bank after I bought the ticket so a free, comfy pair of headphones is exactly what I need.

    (Picture to be added later)


    Thanks BumbleBee and theJesus for doing this giveaway.

    What an excellent giveaway, I would enter, but I already have a few good headsets, and would prefer for someone that needs them more to win them, but I just wanted to thank you for giving away these headphones, you rock! :rockout:

    APOLOGIES ABOUT GIANT PICTURE. (Old camera likes to make giant pics)

    These are my Kingston Hyper X Steelseries beauties and they've served me well. I've owned a few headsets like Fatal1ty's, some Sony that I can't even remember, and a Logitech that is somewhere..

    Reason I'd love to have those Sennheisers is so I can give my father a proper birthday present. We haven't had the chance to really bond over the years and I would love to get him something that we both can't afford. Cheers![​IMG]
