I currently have a pair of Arctis 7X’s which I’m not getting on with too much. I’m finding them a bit too loose around the head for the most part. I also have a pair of WH1000XM4’s that I use for listening to music while I work.
I’m wondering if I can sell both of those and get a set of headphones that I can use plugged into my Dualsense and Series X controllers that will be driven well enough, and what can be used plugged into my iPad Pro 10.5.
My consoles are across the room so I don’t want a DAC. I have two young kids so running a cable across the room isn’t really feasible, so that rules out quite a few headphones which require amping I guess.
the headphones must be good enough to be driven solely by the controllers but still have good sound. And also driven well by the iPad. I don’t need the portability or noise cancelling of the Sony’s as I don’t travel so it’s all wasted really.
So now I’m after that one pair of headphones that i can use for all situations. I prefer a darker sound, high treble does tend to hurt my ears a little, but I would like a bit of soundstage. No competitive gaming at all, it’s all just single player gaming. Music genres are mostly hip-hop, R&B and rock.
From reading about here and various other forums, the Tygr 300R’s sound like they’d be my best option but they don’t seem to easy to pick up from the UK. They’re out of stock at the Beyerdynamic store and Amazon only has them bundled with a microphone for £300.
Are there any other headphones that you can recommend instead?
Edit: Just noticed on the Beyerdynamic website that they’re not shipping to the UK nowadays so it does look like the Tygr is out of the equation unfortunately.
