Looking for some good headphones for Linux/Windows

Not about OpenMW? Just about Morrowind in general? Have some random babble? Kindly direct it here.

Lol, can't wait for all of the pretentious audiophiles to come out of the woodwork. They do sometimes have a point though, I would agree that a good pair of stereo top bluetooth headphones will be much higher quality than a great pair of surround "gaming" headphones. I'm not sure how important sound fidelity is to you, but I listen to a wide range of classical music and game a lot, but never with the kind of twitch reaction games where sound location is really important. Good thing about a normal set of headphones is you'll have no problem being compatible with all platforms. At the end of the day though, they're your ears; if you can try out a few different pairs, that will be way more helpful than a bunch of us randos on the internet.

As to the HTRF, let me know if this is hijacking your thread Greywander, but I would very much like to know how to enable it properly on Windows in OpenMW. I tried googling it a couple times and never really got anywhere.
Is there a way to get HRTF working on Windows?

Ensure the device is configured as Headphones in Windows (not speakers, or virtual surround sound), and is set to a sane sample rate like 48khz or 44.1khz. With OpenAL Soft 1.18 or newer, it should automatically enable HRTF in-game.
