    They're all very low end, just get some Monoprice Hi-Fi DJs if you're in the US, 201s are a reliable choice if not.

    plug in a physical knob??
    I've got the Logitech Z103 but the jack is simply an extension from the tower, so the volume knob does nothing. So how do I go about controlling the volume?

    Get a volume knob then. Or get a small DAC/amp.

    Need some help on getting a decent headset. My Siberia V2's developed a problem over time with audio disconnection, so I decided to look for a new headset. Upon reading about 8 reviews, I decided to get the SWTOR Headset from Razer. However, upon bringing it home it had major problems with it not being recognized to the drivers and it transmitting static whenever I didn't talk for 30 seconds.

    Should I just buy another set of Siberia's and hope these ones last me for over a year, or something completely different?

    So you're telling me to get headphones and a mic separately? That makes a ton of sense.

    Not in the way that I would be using it? Considering I'm using it for talking on Skype with friends and playing games. Obviously getting great quality headphones and a separate great quality mic would get the best of both worlds, but I'm willing to sacrifice quality for convenience.

    I'm looking for something I can buy in stores. I'm not ordering shit, sorry. I know it makes more sense to order something of quality, and that does look like a great product, it's just not what I'm looking for. I don't care that I'm not supposed to get a headset, I'm getting one and that's that. All of these solutions make more sense, but I'm not going to change what I'm getting.

    Back to the original question, Siberia's or a different headset all together?

    Get whatever cheap headset you want, they're all crap compared to a proper pair of headphones, with that attitude and not willing to order for no given reason you deserve an inferior product.

    Thanks, that helps a bundle.

    I get that it's fucking stupid to not get decent headphones and one of those Modmic's, but you have to understand that the money I'm spending will be on store credit for the store I am returning this shitty headset to. If they don't have products akin to that available, then I can't get them. I would rather get them, but it's not an option.

    I should also mention for my earlier request... I'm looking for something which has a good filter. The Zalaman had the worst pickup on background noise, and let me tell you the fun times I'm having using my Logitech webcam.

    They have crappy Logitech desktop mics. Ones that you would see at an elementary school. It's funny how up to date their computer parts are, but their peripherals and accessories are lacking.

    Those "crappy logitech desktop mics" tend to be fairly good.

    The CX's sounded pretty nice but I only had them for around 3 months, looking for something that'll actually last a while this time.

    Edited:

    I was getting excited about the PL30's, they've got some great reviews, but when I read that you're supposed to wear them with the cable of your ear I decided it's a no-go. I know that a lot of audiophiles will hate me for this but I'm going to be wearing these in public, you tend to look like a little bit of a tool with the cables like that. Might just have to buy some new CX's if there are no other options. Surely the X1's aren't that great seeing as they're much cheaper than the other options?

    All three are great headphones, I'd consider the HD280s to be a little muddy compared to the HD448 and Koss DJ, the Koss DJ is similar to the 448 in terms of sonics except the Koss DJs are better in all regards, both are very balanced for the price with emphasis on vocals and good bass texture and extension, althought the Koss DJs have stupidly good build quality for $80, it's literally all metal compared to the Sennheisers plastic. Also take a look at the Brainwavz HM5/Fisher audio FA-004, you really can't go wrong with any of these but they all have their pros and cons.
    I will say with the Koss DJs, buying some different pads (M50/V6 pads recommended (stay away from Shure pads with these headphones)) down the line or straight away will change it for the better both sonically and comfortably.

    awesome, thanks, can you point me to a good burning in guide aswell? Thanks so much for you'r help, I'm going with the Koss Djs, and I think the V6 pads (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ihctc-10594-20) for the price, why is there such a price difference?

    I'm still skeptical about the price difference, but the head-fi link says it all, thanks!

    V6 pads will be an improvement over the stock ones, the stock ones are the only con I can think of with the Koss DJs, they're "ok" but can be replaced for the better very cheaply, if you can find them, grab some ATH-M50 pads as they synergize the best with the Koss DJs and are quite comfortable, although the V6s are still better than stock.
    And the best way to burn in is to just listen to them, it's all part of the experience, they'll sound great off the bat and will sound even better after a few weeks.

    What do you mean look like normal headphones? They look pretty fucking brilliant honestly, an almost brushed aluminium look on the cans themselves, one of few headphones I'd wear in public.
    And no you can't just close an open headphone, it'd completely ruin it sonically, each good headphone is carefully designed around it being closed/open, closing a headphone drastically increases bass and the lower mids and reduces soundstage so they have to work around that by toning down the bass and increasing treble (which is why most closed headphones have a V frequency curve) and there's not a whole lot you can do with the soundstage, same goes for open except the other way around for the most part. I remember someone on here filling his Grado SR125s up with modeling clay to make it closed, he said it sounded fantastic until someone else did the same thing with the same headphones and said it sounded like someone took the M50s and stuck a knife in the driver a few times.

    Guess its just the pictures. Cool, and that's what I was thinking, only more along the lines of closing an open can would push more air around the driver towards the font when it gets pulled backwards, and that would be bad, somehow. Great info, thanks a ton!

    Cool, in the picture, only one was colorized, so I just wanted to make sure, I should be getting these buy the end of the month, I'll be sure to give you guys an update.

    'kay guys new plan

    My Dad offered to buy the voucher for me and just give the money equal to what's on it, so now I have $50 to spend on closed ear headphones. I'll probably chuck in an additional $30 to $35 bucks so that makes my price range around $85, give or take

    So I'm looking for headphones to be used exclusively for music, I'm going to plug it into my music player and use it for the journey to and from uni, and almost every other time I leave the house to go out and do something. When I'm not using them they'll be around my neck.

    I would prefer noise cancellation, or something that would block out all sound from the outside world. Also these headphones have to be reasonably durable, and they cannot be ugly.

    Feel free to post whatever you want but if they're hideous then I'm probably not going to buy them

    Please help me this time, I was pretty disappointed in the lack of help offered before. Second chance yo!
