Whaddya think of the Logitech G330? I like the design and it does look pretty minimalist.

Please...

Two questions:

1. The Grado SR60i needs an amp?

2. Which is the best, Zalman ZM-MIC1 or Audio-Technica ATR4700?

Thanks.

1. Not necessarily, but you do pick up some sounds you thought weren't there before.

2. I never thought about using a microphone since most are into gaming headsets.

The Porta Props emphasize bass and they both roll off highs. They're good for all around gaming as well. There's not many reviews on the porta pros, but are told to be a decent performer. Good news about them though, you can modify/upgrade the pads to HD414 pads for cheap, for better comfort and so forth. Just, most people over look them as they are ugly as all get out. People love these cans over at head-fi and they are excellent for people with glasses, as they fit well.

Bottom line: Warm, fun, no sound leaking, but no isolation. Might as well call them birth control they're so ugly.
I've had these babies for 4-5 years now. They sound great, the bass is pronounced and really do pretty decent with the highs. However, the cans are mounted on the headphones by a very small piece of plastic. This is very easily worn down upon normal use (cord gets snagged, poof!) and will eventually lead to them falling off quite a bit. While they sound great I wouldn't say they're very comfortable either. They REALLY press hard on your head, it keeps them in place but not something I like.

I replaced them with the Sennheiser PX100's. They don't have very distinct bass but the highs are better. They're a lot more comfortable and come in white or black.

Things to Avoid

Inner Ear Modules [IEMS]
Not necessarily at all tbh.
If the IEM has fantastic imaging properties, it can be very good for gaming indeed.
I've tried the SoundMAGIC PL-50's as gaming IEMs and tbh, the imaging is obscene for the price. The only problem is the lack of resolution of soundstage compared against headphones. If it had that, I would be recommending the PL-50 for gaming over the AD700
(and that's saying something). Also there is the E.D.G.E Acoustics GX400 which is an OEM Etymotic ER4P (known for accuracy) with a clip-on mic and in effect you are only paying $10 for that clip-on mic as the GX400 is only $10 more than the regular ER4P.
