I don't know that I would call these great, but I am happy with them for the price.

How durable are they? Had some great and comfortable studio headphones from a name brand that I loved until plastic components in the band where the ear cup attached gave out. I've been going strong with the indestructible dj ones from monoprice since. They do the job, but I'd like some that were a little higher audio quality.

it's nice to see a brand from the 80's still surviving and competing for your dollars.

Marantz is from the '80's? How do you figure that?

They were founded in the 50's. Wikipedia says their "high point" was in the 70's. And yeah, Philips did a real number on them.

But their products these days are considered pretty high end. It's not like, say, Nakamichi, which has gone 100% low to midrange consumer to survive as a brand...

Good for a gaming headset? Don't use a mic.

Marantz Professional is now a completely separate company. They're owned by InMusic Brands [wikipedia.org], the same company that owns Numark (for whatever that's worth).

I'm not sure when it was founded but I remember seeing Marantz adds in many of the AV magazines and Crutchfield catalogs back in the 80s. They were always more expensive and higher quality than brands like SONY. I didnt know Philips bought them? Nakamichi is another popular brand in the 80s which was sold to some Malaysian or Singaporian company and their quality has decreased but so are their prices. I've got some great Nakamichi stuff from Sears believe it or not.

Is that second sentence about you? Are you saying that you just want a headset to play games and that you don't talk with people? If so then get any headphones you want that are comfortable. You could always buy and try out

Can anyone looking in on this thread comment on their noise isolation factor? I have a 6 hour flight coming up and want to get a pair of over ear or on ear cans that do a decent job of muting out the noisy jet engines but don't feel like spending $150+ since I don't wear headphones. I don't have any experience with headphones and am overwhelmed with the number of options out there these days all over the pricing spectrum. Thanks folks!

edit: I listen to rock n' roll and a little bit of trance.

1992-2008, Philips had a significant stake (if not outright ownership) of D&M Holdings (the parent company of Denon and Marantz at the time.)

But I can definitely see what you're talking about. There were a LOT of brands that were popular in the 80's that got "borged" by larger companies in the early '90's. Another example would be Jensen scooping up Acoustic Research and NHT (one of my favorites as I was/am a huge fan of all things Ken Kantor.)

Yes. I would not need the mic. Was wondering if anyone had experience using them for games. Due to the fact that it is a different type of audio you are listenign to, and maybe for different lengths of time. Let alone the type of jack it has. I'm not used to studio headphones so maybe the jack won't fit my PS4.
