    I would like to buy one of these for my PC gaming first and foremost but also use it for my gaming consoles, handhelds and my phone. Going off the specs and reviews alone I'm unsure which one to go for and these two are highly praised from their respective manufacturers, I wanna make a careful consideration and not have to spend hundreds more if I dont have to for the same quality product in the end.

    Honestly, as a brand I trust HyperX, and coupled with the fact that that gaming headset is $200 I'd say that for me that's an easy decision. However, I am NOT an audiophile and usually look for the best cheap price/performance ratio rather than the best quality when shopping for parts, so take that recommendation with a grain of salt

    I wanna get the Hyper X based on aesthetics alone and it just looks more comfortable to wear, I dont want to completly rule out Audio-Technica as it could have some extras to justify its exorbitant price tag. I just don't know what that is hence me asking, I'm far from being an expert with headphones let alone an audiophile.

    I suppose what I would recommend is going to the respective Amazon/Newegg pages and looking at the reviews
