Headphone for music/gaming

I’m just looking for a good set of headphones to use for gaming and music.
I listen Mostly to orchestral, bluegrass/folk, and alot of alternative. (Cage the elephant, gorillaz, radio head, etc.)
I want detailed sound but not too sharp of highs, and I would like nice warm bass. Maybe warm sound signature? (I’m new to the whole sound signature thing.)
I currently own a pair of m50x’s but I think their a little too bassy, I also have some koss kph30i’s but I wish they sounded a little “fuller.”

I don’t really play competitive games, just alot of single player rpg’s. So soundstage would be pretty cool.

My budget is around 200$ (preferably under)
And I dont really want a dac/amp but I it’s necessary I guess id have to.

Sorry if this is kinda a tall order. Any replies are appreciated!

First thing that came to mind was tygr 300r from beyerdynamic. Its ampless less your on console or have a pretty weak mother board

Yeah I was looking at the tygr’s, and also the hd58x and he4xx.

The 4xx will need a amp to sound great that’s at least an extra $100. But the tygrs and 58x are both pretty great for gaming the tygrs especially. The 58x has a closer profile to I think what you want. In regards to sound sig. It has a similar sound sig to the 30i but less midbass , more subbass extension really great mids especially for male vocals. The tygr is better for gaming though and has a noticeably wider soundstage.

This might sound ridiculous and a bit insane coming from me but, as I have witness and heard because I have these with me, I think the Koss KSC75s can be that, both freaking good for gaming and music due to the fact that I have tried it with those and they just work. I mean it’s freaking USD15 but you get yourself some shit that is like endgame levels of sounds imo.


that’s kinda what I was thinking.

Quite the suggestion! A bit odd, but I’ll look into it!

Yep it is odd but it works for me, but you have to try it though so that you can say it works for you, for I cannot guarantee that it will work for someone else just because it works for me.
