    Default Best Gaming/Music Headphone under 5k?

    Ok, those corporate a...holes charge pretty high price for goods tagged with the label GAMING. Usually, quality is good, but still don't wana blow 5k on a headphone and see that it performs like a 0.3k one. So suggest me headphone under 5k. My choice, Tt eSPORTs Shock2 and Razer Moray. Need user review of these. (Dont trust review sites) In-ear, over-ear no problem. but if u suggest in-ear, suggest me one with pouch or case.

    Shock2 BD tey nai.
    U can try Shure SRH 240 for 6k.
    @Hemlock can help, bcoz I don't how how it will perform but due to it being a studio HP it should be better than Gaming Craps.
    Otherwise get a Razer Carcharius, its not bad for its price but IMO the Shure will be better.
    I personally do not like the Moray.

    But I don't have a sound card. Will a studio headphone under-perform? Or they good enough?

    Any and every headphone will under-perform if your sound card does not have op-amps, op-amps will give you better quality of all the frequency especially mids and a tigher bass response.
    Now I wouldnt recommend the SRH 240, the difference between an SRH 240 and 440 is huge thus for a little more get the 440 ; plus you could try looking into audio technica, they make great headphones offered at a good price. Dont look into the high end ones as they are above 500 ~.
    The best headphone for price/performance would be grado sr80i, they are an open back design which will give you an awesome soundstage. the bass is a bit lacking without a good SC or headphone amp but a great headphone overall.
    The TTesports shock has a pretty good sound paired with the x-fi premium hd, after some mods though .

    @EviL AnGeL and @eXsTatik - How are JVC Xtreme Xsplosive? Online review is not bad. What do you think? Worth blowing 4.5k? (Dont compare it with over-ear ones.)

    Since u said diffrnce b2n 240 and 440 is huge, how huge exactly in terms of price and performance. Then again I can't cross 5K.

    First of all the srh 440 according to online reviews have much better sound stage, wider and softer bass extension, better clarity and overall more natural sounding; that said the 240 is not a bad pair of cans but the 440 is closer to the 840 .
    I dont like in ears that much because of the bland sound, it feels very 2d ish. The sound stage isnt as good as good quality over ears. KRK KNS 6400 is a good buy for people on a budget, you might want to give them a look .

    yes not only that as I mentioned earlier the soundstage is very 2 dimensional also the bass extension is not nearly as good as over ears on top of that they are more harmful for your ears than overears .
    Btw you might wanna check some instrument showrooms they have nice hp's there, audiotechnicas are quite well regarded by many, most of their models are great.
    ATH 20 is available and is a great pair.

    I recommend that you save up and buy a good pair.
