Best 5.1 Headphones

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.

I just got a Creative Sound Blaster Zx...
Now I want a set of kick ass headphones.
I dont mind if they have a mic or not, as I can use the mic on the Zx.

But I dont know what to get smile.gif
Money isnt really an object for the perfect set.

I would really love for surround, either Virtual or not (not sure which is best).

These will be used for Movies, Gaming and Music.

And I was thinking of using the attached Zx mic and headphone (ACM) slot so doesnt need to be wireless, as I will use that as the control unit.

Thanks for any feedback smile.gif

I was thinking of using the virtual surround sound, with a pair of
Denon AH-D600
or Beats Pro
or Beyerdynamic MMX 300 (Can you recommend any other Beyerdynamic?)

How do you think the virtual surround would work with any of the above?

Im leaning towards the Denon's as they look and apparently sound pretty pucker!

Well I wouldn't want to spend $1000+ just on sound.

But if your talking like $500 then that's a different story.

Why the Beats Pro's over anything else?
