A certain Egg site has HD280's for around the century mark, my BF order for the HD555's was delayed which where priced $30 less than the century mark. I'm looking to pick up a nice pair of head phones for PC gaming. Any recommendations on which would be better suited for gaming? I can cancel my BF order if necessary due to the delay. I'm completely ignorant when it comes to headphones. Although I picked up SENNHEISER PX100's for my MP3 player and love them. I was planning on sticking with my Sennheiser brand, but I'm really looking for the best bang for the buck on headphones with a price of under $100.
I use Sennheiser 555's for computing, gaming, watching movies, etc. Very happy with the bass and detail from these headphones. I paid more than $100 for them last year so for $70, I would think that's a helluva buy.
I use HD280's at work because they tend to block out office noise with their "closed" design and around the ear fit. They work fine, but I prefer my HD580's for longer listening periods at home, where the open back design and the very light around the ear fit allows longer wearing times with less ear fatigue. Musically, I prefer the 580's
