I did not assume, I asked. I do not want to know what your dad has either.

The question I pose to you is how many pairs of headphones do you personally use that you know last ten years? Putting them in a box or in a trunk is not using them. That is preserving or storing them.

To Audio-Technica's credit, my AD700 have taken some serious punishment, and look almost as good as the day I bought them. They are out of warranty though. I take care of my things.

You have not had a pair of good headphones or any of the pairs of headphones you usually list for more than 10 years.
That's a question..? Go figure.
I do use my dad's equipment, probably more often than he does anymore, because I do like experimenting and comparing them to my newer phones. Have I personally owned any headphones for 10 years? No, because 10 years ago I couldn't have cared less about audio.
That said, what does personal ownership have to do with any of this? I know how old they are, I know how often they've been used, and I know they still work fine to this day.
Why do I recommend modern phones that haven't even been around 10 years? Because I think it's safe to say that quality audio products should last a very long time. Most headsets that break have poor wiring, which ideally shouldn't be a problem.


I'm really not sure why you think you know so much about me. First you tell me (not ask; tell) that I don't have any experience, then you decide that when I said I've used headphones, I meant "put them in storage". Maybe English isn't your first language, if so I apologize. But where I come from, we don't call that a question.

That's crazy mang, that one costs more than my PC in total did.

I'm sorry but I'm not in the market for a 1.200 euro headphones. I understand pretty well their quality will rock the daylight out of a gaming headset. But like I said I need a good wireless headset solution which incorporates mic as well as decent headphones and need to be able to use it for my PS3 mainly.

I'm going to have a look at all the headphones that have been suggested.

With all that in mind, I'd really just grab the best deal on any generic TBs or something. They won't sound great, so I wouldn't spend too much, but they'll get the job done. It'd probably be too much trouble to get wireless headphones to work for PS3 and add a mic to the mix.

I thought the previous mentioned astro mixamp + headphones and clip on zalman mic would also work on my ps3.

But what you're saying it exactly my problem. There's about a billion silutions like this for PCs and only a few generic choices for PS3.

Again, everything is as I thought. Is English my first language? Now you are being silly. That is an attempt to avoid my question all together. You have obviously not bought anything and had it last ten years. So, your assumption about something lasting ten years or more means absolutely nothing. You have no basis for an opinion, you are merely wishing something did what you want.

Personal ownership has everything to do with advice you dispense to others. Coming to this or any other forum and answering every other post as you do means you obviously think you know what you are talking about.

"I think it's safe to say......." You do not have the amount of experience you reference, but you make recommendations to others. Not good. That is like standing behind a group of big guys at a bar fight and saying, "Yeah, we say so! So do it!"

Why do I think I know so much about you? You told me. You have not used any headphones for 10 years, but you are sure they should last that long.

Your dad has equipment in storage, so you think that allows you to judge how long yours or anybody else's equipment should last.

Am I attacking you personally? No. I am telling you that it is unfair to tell people what to buy when your reasons for telling them so have basis in fact or experience. Simple. You just distracted me with more silliness and it takes me longer to tell you so.

To the OP I apologize for wasting your time. I do not want Narzon telling you what he and his dad think you should or should not buy.

Ok, tell me, where did I say that? Where? Seriously, where? Oh, that's right, I didn't. He doesn't keep them storage, and that's another tick off on your crusade of assumptions. I don't know how to take you seriously. Every post you add more and more. I say "my dad has owned headphones for decades that he and I still use regularly" and to you that means "my dad has headphones in storage that we never use". How do you make that connection? I wasn't joking when I asked if English was your first language. You clearly don't know what a question is.
OP, please disregard this buffoon.

I'm not sure how you could do MixAmp solution with wireless headphones + a zalman, especially since the zalman isn't wireless to begin with. I suppose you could use analog out to some sort of wireless decoder or something... but honestly I don't think all of this is worth the trouble. And I rarely say that.
