    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.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.
