    Hi guys,

    I'm new to headphones, as I have never owned a pair of headphones, only gaming headsets. So not sure which are the best bang for the buck; I just know I want open back headphones for the better soundstage and so I will be able to hear the cries of my little one (once they are born) :)

    I have read lots of reviews and watched videos, but wanted some input from a forum I trust.

    My current selection are these:

    Samson SR850

    Superlux HD668B

    AKG K121

    AKG K240

    Audio Technica ATH-AVA400
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01ANY7EV0/ref=s9_dcacsd_dcoop_bw_c_x_4_w?th=1

    My budget has a hard ceiling of £80; which rules out things like the Sennheiser HD 559 and other known "greats". I'm just after a good set of open back headphones that will sound good for gaming.

    Thanks for help in advance.
