I'm looking for some Sennheiser cans with an awesome soundstage. Need to be open back obviously.

Thanks for the help.

Budget?

Ragingboar submitter 1 point 5 days ago

$1000 in peripherals mouse , cans, keyboard and display. So maybe $200 or $300.

There are the HD 600 and HD 650 in that price range but they need a good amp and DAC to pair with which takes it out of budget.

The HD 558 would be worth looking at and sounds just like the HD 598. Goes on sale at Best Buy for $80 often.

Oh, btw forgot to mention this earlier, I will be using the cans solely for gaming.

just ordered a pair of hd 558's on best buy, they're on sale right now for 79.99 and are great headphones at that price.

Look into the Sennheiser PC 363D, very comfortable headset, with a good mic. And the sound is very good. Also one of the most comfortable things I've ever put over my ears.

Combined with my Xonar DX in my gaming rig, it sounds fantastic.

The PC 363D does come with a little DAC - just not a great one. But its' still miles better than realtek onboard stuff.

I've heard some samples of the PC 363d mic and it sounds pretty close to the human voice. (unlike most headsets) I am considering those or cans and a regular mic such as, the Blue Yeti Pro depends on cost.

Sadly, the 363 is like $150-200 365 days a year. I managed to pick mine up for $110 during this last black friday sale from an Ebay seller I've bought from a few times (Best Offer).

The Mic is great, it took a bit of fiddling to get working right on my computer but once I did, it was ... great.

Why are the g4me cans praised so much the mic quality isn't very good, even if every other part is.
