What would you guys recommend? Either the Sennheiser HD201's ($45), or the HD 205/415 (both $75)

I know it's more expensive, but i live in South Africa. I will get either the Asus Xonar D1 or an Extreme gamer, leaning towards the D1. I game 70% of the time & watch movies/episodes the rest of the time.

Hey guys, I'm looking for your valued advice. I'm seeking a pair of headphones or a headset which I can game with. They'll be used almost exclusively for gaming. They need to be lightweight (cool) because I'll wear them forever and don't want the reason I'm stopping play is because my head is too damn hot. I don't want to spend a mint, but don't let that be a deciding factor. I'm really looking for a trim, cool pair without heavy bass. I love hearing footsteps.

A700 or AD700

They barely even feel like they are on your head. So comfortable!

Hey guys, do you know a reputable retailer that sells the Plantronics Audio Switcher? Newegg and Amazon are out of stock and Google Product Search only showed bad, expensive sellers.

Hey guys. I've been looking for a good gaming headset for awhile. How do these look? It's the HD-555's, and if I also buy the clip on mic, it's only $100.
Is it a good deal?

I just got a pair of Sennheiser HD201's. Best 18 bucks I've ever spent.

Hope this isn't the worst thread within which to ask this question: are there any soundcards out there out there that have a USB/digital output? If not, why not?

Why don't you talk about the grado sr60s. As I understand it they're considered one of the best headphones ever produced, let alone under 100 bucks. I've listened on a pair of friends and would be happy to report that they're probably the only ones on your list with a truly balanced sound for under 100.
