As you can see from the text streaking down the side of the headband, this headset was made for gaming and designed with the gamers in mind. I've been searching all over the internet for headphones that match these qualifications: comfort, good for gaming, and cheap. I wanted headphones that didn't have leather padding, because I've wore those before and not only are they hot, but they get uncomfortable. So I wanted some other material for headphones. Sennheisers headphones met all the qualifications except one, THEY'RE FREAKING EXPENSIVE. I wasn't willing to spend that much on those headphones. Then I stumbled upon these 377 headphones and I was amazed at the price. So I bought them. I have no regrets buying these. Not only are they comfortable, but they also sound amazing. I have no complains about this headset. I intentionally bought the open ear headset because I didn't want to be completely oblivious to my surroundings, but if you're looking for that complete immersion then I would buy the 367 closed ear model.
