    Hello,
    i am new to this community, yesterday i received my first apple computer ( iMac 27 inch 5k )
    i was thinking of buying good headphones with great quality of sound, i have been looking at logitech g430 and razer kraken 7.1.
    do you recommend one of those ? or do you have better suggestion for same price and same quality.
    i guess they are both compatible with mac OS ( their software )

    thank you

    I think there are a lot of factors to consider: price, corded (length) or cordless, gaming, audio quality, noise cancelling, long-term comfort, and so on. As noted above, any headphone will work.It's all about how you plan to use them along with personal preferences.

    I like my Philips Fidelio X/1 (X/2 are out now) ... but I only use them to listen to music (via Audioquest Dragonfly DAC).

    Comes down to personal choice. Go to a store and try them out. That's what I did. Thought I was certain on what I wanted when I went to buy mine until I went out to the store and started to try the many different ones they had. Was I surprised at what I ended up with. Saved myself a little money and in the end was super pleased with my choice. We all hear things differently.

    In-store auctioning is vital in ensuring you don't waste your money. An aesthetically pleasing set of headphones doesn't necessarily mean that they sound as good as they look.

    Even so, I was pleasantly surprised to discover one benefit in buying a set of Bluetooth headphones. At home, in pairing my headphones with my Mac Mini (with iTunes open), I can use my iPhone's (Apple) Remote app to access all the music I own, rather than being limited to the storage capacity for playing music on my iPhone.

    I use the Bowers & Wilkins P7 (wired) with my Mac. There's also a newer wireless version. The sound is excellent.

    I use Sennheiser HD650's and they have a really lovely sound. They're not particularly cheap, but they are worth it - I've had this pair for over five years and, if anything they have improved with age as the parts have bedded down.
