I removed the Rx900s. I can't justify spending almost 60 dollars for these headphones. They're just not that good SQ wise.
I've also added the XB500 and XB700 to the list.

The soundstage is tiny, I wouldn't recommend them for gaming. I think that you put them into the right section though, they deserve a mention for a good cheap headphone for bass heads.

To Sticky or not to sticky..that is the question...
If sticky, must include the 'one headphone does not fit all requirements the best' disclaimer of sorts.

I think it is reasonable to make this a sticky. There's a lot of knowledge in this thread that would have otherwise been gained from lurking Head-Fi for several months.

Yes, that's why they're in the dubstep/bass headphones section rather than gaming. tongue.gif

Well, I've kept it pretty up to date so far including adding a few headphones as I see fit and removing some. Not like audio changes a lot anyway!

Just for my own curiosity, do a beyerdynamic T 1 (Tesla) with its "own" amplifier designed for itself, the beyerdynamic A1 (110 V), and a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD work as well as a beyerdynamic DT 990 Edition (600 Ohms) with a suitable amp and the same sound card, FOR GAMING?

Hey guys I have a very specific question so I posted up my own thread. (after searching) Take a look: Need a PCI soundcard that will output any computer audio to 5.1 over toslink to a receiver

Thx

If it for games usage then a Xonar DG, It has Dolby Digital Live encoder support which is used to Encode 5.1 analog signal to Digital for outputing stuff that isnt encoded already in 5.1 digital Like games.
