    Upgrading Headphones. Which to choose?

    Hey guys. I recently broke my Dynamode DH-660 (very cheap and pretty bad headphones) and I am using my friend's spare headphones Fatal1ty Creative but its time to buy myself my own headphones. BTW I broke my old one's by somehow twisting the jack and I could only hear on one headphone which happened to me to the past three headphones. Any way to prevent that?

    Okay to the point. I was thinking of getting the Turtle Beach Ear Force PX22's but recently my uncle which is a techy guy said that I should get something from a better known brand that would last longer and recommended me Sennheiser in which I found the Sennheiser PC 320's but they are pretty expensive. My budget is max €100 ($137). Which ones should I choose? The turtle beach or sennheiser? Or maybe if ye guys could find me a different set that would do the job just fine at a maybe cheaper price. I just want to use them for gaming and I want a good enough microphone so that I could be heard clearly and without any background noise ingame and on Skype. Thanks a lot in advance.

    Brands to look for:
    Sennheiser - Great sound, great look, great build quality.
    V-Moda - Great sound, tons of bass, built like a tank.
    Grado - Good sound, rustic look, good build quality.
    Audio-Technica - Amazing sound, fantastic build quality.
    AKG - Incredible sound, great build quality.

    Brands to stay away from:
    Beats by Dre - Sub-par sound (Badly repressed mids, over-driven lows and highs), very cheap build quality, hellishly over-priced.
    Soul by Ludacris - Strikingly similar to Beats.
    Skullcandy - Low-quality sound, weak drivers, cheap build-quality.


    Take it from any audiophile, Turtle Beaches are overpriced piles of shit.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.
