I have looked around, done some reading because I am in the market for a new headset, I have tried to do some research between Open air and closed back headsets. But the question I want to ask is, what is better in terms of playing fps games such as FPS games i.e CS:GO
Here are the 2 headsets I am looking at getting
Open air: https://www.pccasegear.com/products/34018/audio-technica-ath-adg1x-open-air-gaming-headset
Closed back: https://www.pccasegear.com/products/34017/audio-technica-ath-ag1x-closed-back-gaming-headset
To be completely honest, the Open air headset looks better, but I know looks aren't everything, if someone could help me with this it would be greatly appreciated cheers.

Who needs headphones when you have codehook? (jk)
Open - better for soundstage, gives more air and instrument separation to the sound, better imaging and directional implementation.
Closed - better low end, less sound leakage, less sound stage.
