They will mainly be used for gaming.
But I wouldn't mind music and movies on the odd occasion.

I listen to just about anything from Metallica, to Enya, to Andrea Bocelli, to Slipknot... So very varied haha...

And thanks for the heads up.

~$650 range:

The very best for gaming:

AKG K702 65th Anniversary Edition (MUCH better headband for comfort than the regular K701/ K702) ($399)

http://www.proaudiostar.com/akg-k702-65th-anniversary.html?gdftrk=gdfV21380_a_7c627_a_7c5539_a_7cAKG_d_K70265THANNIVERSARY

+ JDSLabs O2 Amp to drive them ($156 USD including North American adapter)

http://www.jdslabs.com/item.php?fetchitem=o2full


Better value:

beyerdynamic DT990 600ohm (type 'SAVE2013' in the checkout to get $15 off!)

$351 including the coupon

http://soundapproach.com/beyerdynamic-dt990-premium-stereo-headphones-p-2473.html

+ JDSLabs O2 as mentioned.
