I'm considering getting headphones for various reasons, but there are so many options it's become a bit overwhelming. Maybe you guys can help me out. I've tried researching them myself, but to no avail, so I will list the pertinent info and maybe you pro's can lend your wisdom.
These headphones would be used for both video games and music. They don't have a single primary use, I've just been needing some for a while.
1. TV : I usually spend the night at my girlfriends house, she has a big t.v. in her bedroom where I've set up my game systems. Because of scheduling, I can often only play games late at night and her brothers bedroom is on the other side of the wall the tv is on. If I could use some headphones while playing games late at night, it'd be great. We're looking at about an 8 foot rich from the front of the t.v. (output) to where id be sitting against the wall on the bed across the room. I don't know if that would necessitate wireless. They would also be useful to allow me to continue to play with sound on
if my gf decides to go to sleep. I get by without it, but it would be great to have. Would this necessitate closed headphones so the sound doesn't leak to her 2 feet away?
2. PC: Eventually (really far down the road, like a year?) I would like to finally get my computer upgraded enough (re: Replaced) to get back into PC gaming. Headphones would be great, and would cut down on costs from speaker setups. Most of the usage from TV reapply, mostly to be able to play without disturbing others and have decent stereo effects for lower cost and more versatility. I don't think its soon enough down the road to require headphones with a mic though, especially since I assume it wouldn't work with the xbox controller for my 360 (my stock headset broke a week in, which makes tf2 a bit lame, but I'm guessing it'd be easier to just get another 20$ headset for the 360 and get separate headphones?)
3. Amp: I practice guitar, but its hard to really practice the electric late at night without some headphones. If I could get some for my other purposes that had one of those large adapters, it would definitely be a plus. Most 10$ headphones don't have them. (don't know the dimensions of what adapter i need, but its much larger than what an average cd player comes with.
Budget wise, were looking at around 100$, ofcourse preferably under. I'm no audiophile, I'm not a tournament gamer, I'm not a recording artist. Doesn't have to be a crazy pair, just a decent pair. Preferably not in ear, simply because I don't enjoy inserting things in my ear canal and it always seems easier to lose your hearing with those.
I dunno...any suggestions? Either on type (open/closed, wired/wireless, etc) or Brand/Model?
tl;dr: I need some headphones, what can you suggest?
