I have been looking around online for a good pair of headphones to replace my home theater system. In the past I have used Razer and Turtle Beach. I did love the Razer headphones, but those were used on a desktop with the proper sound card installed. I am now using a MSI GT780DX gaming laptop, which does not have the proper connections for a 5.1 or 7.1 headset.
My TV does have the optical out and single headphone jack on the back. Given my setup, what headset would work best for me?
Is the Razer Tiamat really as bad as I have read if you use the adapter to 1 3.5mm?
Ah, sorry. Should have included that. Budget wise I'm good probably up to 200-300. The headphones will be used mostly with watching TV/Youtube/Netflix. The rare occasion when I do listen to music on the TV it would be a mix of Rock/Techno/Pop/Dance lol.
The high range sounds on both of them MIGHT be a little harsh for you at first but after some burn in it should mellow out. Be careful about the Ultrasones, they're a german company and don't honor warranties in the US, according to their site. IDK if they really won't or what.
These are also very well received, but it's probably best to have a DAC or sound card with headphone amp.
Keep in mind the second 2 I linked are open back, so you will get audio bleed both into and out of them, so if you're around a lot of people, they WILL hear your headphones if the volume is up a little.
