That's not the only place to get them, but it's a good place and they ship worldwide, so I linked you there.


Most people have never heard of the great headphone makers, because most people find the idea of spending more than $20 on a pair of headphones ridiculous, and most of the rest are gamers who get sucked into the marketing for gaming headphones.

Some of the best REAL headphone makers

Sennheiser
Grado
Alessandro
Audio-Technica
AKG
BeyerDynamic

There's a few other smaller companies, and some consumer companies (JVC, Sony, etc) make some extremely high end (Ie the Sony R10, which is in the $3,500 range) headphones, but those are some of the bigger players in the high end headphone market.

Ok, well that leaves me one question: The Sennies pc 160 has "an unique 360 degrees sound". With my upcomming X-fi extremegamer, will the ATH-A500 have surround sound too?


BTW: I haven't got a VISA/MASTERCARD, and these headphones aren't for sale in the Netherlands, so are there any other good headphones for 95 $ ?

Nevermind, I saw they also accept pay-pal. Well I am going to order these. Are you sure they are better than the other Gaming-headsets, so I can hear footsteps etc. better than with those?

Yes.

You can use the X-Fi's CMSS-3D feature for simulated surround sound. It sounds fantastic through my XtremeMusic and Sennheiser HD555s.

There's a couple small differences, but stock audio quality is the same.
