    Default Need Advice on buying a decent headphone.

    So here's the rundown: I wanna buy a decent headphone at a low cost (budget: 4K Max) I know that budget is pathetic but that is the best I can afford. Doesnt have to be very good but at least better than the cosonics and the apple earphones.

    MY purpose:

    1) Gaming: will mostly be used for single player games with my PC. It doesn't have a dedicated soundcard, just the standard realtek.
    2) Music: mostly metal again with the PC
    3) Movies: with Pc and the TV.

    so I currently can't decide among these 4 headphones and if online reviews are anything to go by then all of them are ridiculously good value for money

    1) Sennheiser HD20: (3K)

    - Has good sound quality
    - Has a long cord
    - good isolation
    - Good build quality
    - Comfort seems to be a grey area but I have medium sized head and ears so I'm guessing I should be fine

    2) Koss UR40: (3.7k)

    - Has good sound quality
    - Has a short cord(not cool)
    - Poor Isolation (again not cool)
    - Very comfortable
    - very nice design

    3) Sennheiser HD201: (3k)

    4) Koss UR20: (3K)

    So guys I have searched the net and although I got positive reviews for all of these I couldn't find anything about how they stack up against each other in gaming, which is gonna be the deciding factor.

    So please if you know anything about their performance in gaming then please tell me. Also if you no of any other headphone in the price range (~$25) which will be good for gaming then please recommend.

    Well if its just singleplayer games then you don't really need to look for anything. I suppose you can get the one best for movies.

    From Amazon via amazon.co.bd. I'm not sure if they are available and even if they are they are definetely gonna be pricey. The only sennheiser I've seen in bd were a pair of HD228 for 6K at G&G.

    No lol, Amazon doesn't have any site for bd. Amazon.co.bd is a facebook group which buys products from Amazon/ebay and brings them to BD for you.
    here's their url
