Question What Headphones To Get ???

Hello everyone,
I am tying to decide what headphones to get. I am stuck between these 2 choices. I am a GAMER, so primarily I will be using them for games. I am also thinking of getting the Razer sound card, (see other topic, “What Sound Card To Get ???”) so if I decide to get the card I think both razers will pair up good with each other….

Both headphones are very good, and I don’t care about the price or that the razer have mic and hd55 don’t, I just want to know what will I be loosing if I get ether one….etc


The Razer Barracuda HP-1 Gaming Headphones

VS

sennheiser hd555

http://www.dansdata.com/hd555.htm




Please advice.

Thanks.

I love Razer's products, they've always been great for me. Seinnhesier's are good, but they're not specifically for gaming.

I wouldn't get noise canceling, if you don't want to hear anything else get sound isolating ones. Noise canceling can decrease the sound quality a bit.

IMO, get the Razer product. It won't let you down.

I've heard of both of them, heard good things about both, but personally when I get my next headset it's going to be razer's.

Yeah, for gaming products, there's nothing better than Razer.

I have a pair of Shure E2C earbuds, they're excellent if you like the in-ear design. Awesome quality.
