You can now easily browse through the listings either in the detailed list view or in the thumbnail view, with filters for functionality such as headphone type, number of channels, noise cancellation, wireless support, and built-in microphone availability.

As with other part types, you can set both standard and parametric price alerts, check for the lowest prices, view price history, and add them to your part lists and completed builds.

nice addition go check out /r/headphones for some great cans and Brands you could add (like beyerdynamic)

edit* also a good addition would be to say if theyre open or closed headphones :)

We do specify the open/closed - or at least it shows up on the part specification page and can be filtered by that attribute in the category page. For the additional brands to add, I know manirelli is still in the process of adding additional sets. I'll make sure he is on top it - thanks!

You guys should add the new Corsair vengeance headsets they just announced!

And an idea I had for a feature, you could make it so that you can click on the custom parts you entered, and it'll show builds with similarly named custom parts. I don't know, just a thought. :-)

Good call on the beyers! I have the dt 770's and they feel and sound great. The only complaint that I have is that occasionally hairs get stuck in the drivers and you have to rip em apart to get the hair out.

Just a reminder that gaming headsets or headsets in general will always sound much worse than proper headphones. If you do proper research, you'll see that you want to avoid Logitech, Razer, Astro, Turtle Beach, Steelseries and (of course) Beats, Monster and Bose.

Hi, I was wondering if you wouldn't mind naming some brands you do recommend? I am looking to buy some headphones right now but not sure what might be a good choice. I would be using it for gaming as well as for music/phone if possible. thanks in advance! :)

Audio-Technica ATH-M50 for neutral sound (I have these, they're awesome). Phiaton MS400 for more bass. Audio-Technica ATH-M35 for good value.

ModMic for headphone-mounted microphone or a Blue Snowball for desktop mic.

Doesn't get any better than those! (for a reasonable budget)

Sennheiser definitely, Audio Technica, AKG, Klipsch, and Sennheiser.

Sennheiser do some great headphones like the momentum's, HD series, as well as some great quality headsets

Koss is a respectable brand as-well.

And if your interested in a mic for gaming chat, these are great priced but great quality usb mics, bluemic.com

There's hundreds of headphones across a very big range of brands so narrowing down one is all up to what you want. Check the resources in /r/headphones or just go to head-fi.com for a while and look for headphones in your budget.

Awesome, but it really needs to be able to filter by connection type (usb, bluetooth, 3.5mm (split or combined)).

Can you add Plantronics to the list? The GameCom 780 are quite decent and popular in the lower budget end.

After checking specific headphones for gaming, seems most of them are here. Interesting that there aren't any more high-end headphones like Audeze, Fostex, Grado, HiFiMan, and the electrostatic Stax headphones.

Great addition. Is an option to specify which kind of drivers the headphones have coming?

  • 75 months ago
  • 2 points

Probably not. Most sites have terrible information as it is unfortunately. I'm curious why driver size matters to you?

  • 75 months ago
  • 1 point

Not just driver size, but also driver type. So I could sort by balanced armature drivers for example.

Woohoo! That is an awesome addition - thanks for all the hard work! The only thing is the list would be awesomer with VModas and Phiatons

What are the chances of adding the impedance stat for headphones as well? I think it would make a great addition.

just throwing it out there, add support for b&h photo video. they have a ton of headphones and audio gear, stuff that newegg and the likes never stock (aka the good stuff). I know its a lot of work incorporating an entire new site to the mix but if youre doing audio at least try and also support the high end stuff too

Oh wow, I completely forgot to check back on my comment after I posted it. In answer to the question you asked a a long time ago (D:) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826289003 and http://www.amazon.com/Universal-Stereo-Gaming-Headset-TM-YB100A/dp/B001FY7LBQ are two that I know of.

To the site authors, bosses and worker bees! This is a great idea, the parts picker. Millions of us clunkers trying to build PCs alone at home in the boonies with "nary" any help close by (I live in the South...) thank you as they and Elvis say in the South 'from the bottom of my heart.' (I am a physician and have never understood where the cardiac bottom is...). Thanks again, this is an inspired idea and service. F Miller MD

Nice, HD 800's for the icon seem a bit odd though, not really gameing headsets or really ment for pc's at all. They are studio headphones...

  • 75 months ago

We are including those in the listings too. Many people use studio style headphones for gaming and other applications - usually paired with a separate microphone.
