So guys, I'm looking at getting something closed. My ATH-AD700s are great for my Mom's house where it's usually quiet, but I go to my Dad's house every other weekend, and he is currently building a pool house, so I need some isolation!

Right now I have my eye on Equation RP-21s, any thoughts?
Someone here on the forums had those for a little bit, don't remember a whole lot about them... that being said you can also find a500's and ultrasone hfi450's in that price range.

EDIT: thx by the way on the tip, might actually pick up the c551k's. source for now is going to be a 1 gig ipod nano 1st generation.

EDIT: ok now i can see how that would be helpful. but not as helpful ask just simply asking what the potential headphone will be used for?

Oh, you guys started a club. Does that mean I get to knock on your door and pester you for advice? I've been looking for reviews but 'my sites' don't really have a lot of recent ones.

Currently I have a set of Philips SHP805 headphones, and before that I had Sennheiser HD 515s. The Sennheisers broke from wear and tear and the Philips ones are just getting mangy and nasty. It's not like you can put it in the washing machine.

So what I need is something that..

- covers the ears like these and the ones before
- gives good music sound while also being decent for games (I don't have a fancy sound card as you can see and I rarely listen to anything but mp3's so don't think I'm picky..)
- preferably with a neck band as the 'headphone hair' is getting old
- preferably with replaceable pads so I can wash them or throw them when they get nasty
- none of these insanely priced audiophile thingoes, less than €100 (or slightly above if it ticks all the boxes and is optimal, obviously) would be better

Here you go
http://www.steelseries.com/us/products/audio/siberia-neckband/information


This is the head phone for those who want the most out of some white over the ear head phones that make sure your hair looks awesome at lan parties!! W00t, because we all know how important looking cool while pwning at [insert whatever people are competitively playing at lan parties now-a-days].

PLUS it has a mic! so you can yell at your buddies who are sitting next to you!....through vent!.....ON a freaking LAN! lol

Seriously though, these are decent headphones for gaming, they're circumaural and are neckbandy and junk. They sound good for anyone who isnt an audiophile and they do look cool. Yes i have worn and tried these out.

Good lucK!
