Hi Guys I'm for suggestions for a new Headset I do game and I listen Music and Watch Videos so I need something that handles the "Bass" any suggestions?

Thanks

How much do you want to spend.

A decent pair of cans budget between £100.00 and £250.00, but I use the £25.00 Stenhauser ones that I use in the Gym as the compression on most Downloads makes anything else fairly pointless.

For my Music System: Tuner, Turntable and CD Player, I use a set of Koss's that I picked up in the local Auction Room for £12.00 (including Commission) but which would have cost me about £150.00 - New.

The choice is really yours

If you Google: Headphone Reviews, you will get several sites that carry them.

£60.00 will get you a superb set that will outperform ear buds and give you a wider feeling of space.

I am not convinced that those phones that purport to give you an "all-round" effect, by including more than one speaker in each ear piece, achieve what they set out to do. In effect you are buying slightly cheaper headphones with more speakers in them, your eardrum is unable to differentiate the direction of sounds, that come into your ear, except by turning your head.

wee eddie, I have a pair of surround-sound headphones (Plantronics GameCom 780) which are great for sound in games but, they are, as you suspect, not good for listening to music. I believe the supplied software achieves positional effects by altering timings of sounds from different directions and works quite well.
