    So, I am sick of my skull candies. Well actually in all honesty, they are broken. Talked with a couple friends, and the same happened to theirs. So now I am on the hunt for a nice sounding pair of headphones (OVER EAR) that cost less than $100. $50 or so would be awesome!

    So far I have found these and found nothing but good reviews on them. Tell me what you guys think, and maybe could offer...

    ^^^^RAZER ORCA'S^^^^^ (if you don't feel like visiting the link)

    Thanks!

    EDIT: No mic needed

    do you need the mic?
    if yes, use the AD700 and zalman clip mic.

    if you dont need mic, also AD700

    Steelseries Siberia V2 or Sennheiser PC350/PC360, but AD700 still wins.

    Steelseries 4h's can be had for about $45 bucks. Very good sound for the price.

    Go with the Psyko 5.1 surround head set. That way everyone else in a 20ft radius can hear what you're doing just as loud and clear as you.

    Seriously though, go with the Orcas; they are sexy! I want to get them.

    What AhokZYashA said -can't go wrong with an ATH-AD700. An AD500 is about as good if you can find it a lot cheaper.

    Like I said, don't need a mic lol. Sent my skull candies in finally. I think I may just go with the Razers. Not sure yet though.

    yep, for gaming without mic, AD700 is one of the best option.

    nice, spacious soundstage, accurate positioning, and not to mention, very" comfortable

    Is the Corsair Gaming Audio Series HS1A 3.5mm any good? They're on sale at Newegg for $50 with a promo code, $40 after MiR.

    Do you have a preference between open and closed air designs? Loud environment? I always go open air if the environment is quite, better quality IMO.
