Question about Ultrasone PRO 550

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm in the market for headphones that will be primarily used for gaming with some decent bass for music also being a plus.
I'm hoping to stay under $180 CAD and want good value (would be willing to go a bit higher for a really good deal).
I currently have the ASUS Xonar DX soundcard so I need something that would work well with that.

So I was taking a look at OCN's most recommended audio products thread and took interest in the Ultrasone PRO 550
found it on sale on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Ultrasone-PRO-550-Professional-Headphones/dp/B000YDYEDW

Is this good value?
Would this work with my sound card?
could these be used with an Ipod when travelling or do they need an amp?

I'm open to suggestions! this is really just a starting point in my search.

oh and I guess I'll need a clip on mic for gaming, I'll figure that out later I guess.
Thanks

You'll need/want an extension cord that terminates in a 3.5 mm connector. The PRO550 out of the box comes with a long cable that terminates in a 6.3 mm.

I do not recommend portable use due to the size of the headphone.
