I had a pair of audio-technicas about 15 years ago that I absolutely loved. They lasted me over a decade and they were perfect in every way

I got a new pair of audio-technicas about a year ago, Air ATH-AD500X... and they made me feel LIKE A PIECE OF s***. The build and sound quality between this pair and my old pair is absolutely astonishing, these new ones are absolute garbage, and unsurprisingly they've now fallen apart after only a year

15 years ago audio-technica was making amazing quality for the price. Now they're making trash for the same price. Who is the go to these days

Best PC gaming headset you can get ........
Audeze Morphius.
Doubles up as a best wireless headphones on the market today.

Im surprised how cheap they launched, considering their normal 'audiophile headphones' are like $2000-3000.

The only issue I have with them is......battery is required for wired use.

AKG or harmon-kardon. IIRC they are owned by the same company.

or you can get $4000 in-ear monitors.

Headphones are the one peripheral where you shouldn't fall for the stuff marketed towards gamers and should stick with the traditional headphone brands outside of gaming - think Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic, Shure, AKG, etc.

If you're caught up on a mic, there's always modmics and stand-alone mics. I think it's worth the inconvenience to get a good pair of cans from a respectable brand like the one above. They even sell some that come with mics, though I've never had a pair that did.

senn, beyer, shure, akg, audio technica all remain the best top end quality brands

mass drop usually has high end headphones for cheaper prices

For all intents and purposes, I'm not making fun of you cause you're gonna resort to swearing or some s***. The beats performed the worst overall in their picks. TC should go check out headphones at his local store and then make a decision. Going by the internet isn't the best experience. I use modded sennheiser HD 439's with aftermarket earcups as well and it's a great experience. It could be better, I've used better headphones before, but for 50 bucks this ain't bad.

You don't know Fade if you think he has the capacity for those kinds of jokes.
