I do believe I stated that I do not go running with my Cowon. At best I go cycling in which case, wrap around is better. I stated that i have a Cowon so that you all would have a better idea of the kind of sound quality I would be listening to. Yes, i realize that full ear would "weaken: the sound. But again, we go back to the fact i want headphones for multipurpose uses. Yes, the ear-buds serve a purpose, they just don't work well for me. The only thing that stayed in my ear(only after lots of fighting with it) is mold-able earplugs in the Army. I don't mean to step on an toes here, I'm just trying to cover all the bases before I buy.redface.gif

So, the plan is that I will snag the Iasus NT3, and get a ~50 dollar set of cans. All I'm missing is some good recommendations from the list on page 1 and some recommendations on decent sound cards( much better than the VIA I use now)thumb.gif

JVC RX700(mod-able) and Samson SR850 were mentioned. I'd recommend getting something like the HD555 instead though and mod it to 595s. You can get them for around $50-60 used. X-Fi Fatal1ty for gaming and Asus Xonar D2X/Essence STX for music.

The X-Fi won't be nearly as good as the Asus for music, but if you mostly game than it's better for positional gaming. To get good use out of the Asus though, you'll need to invest in better headphones and possibly a headphone amp.

Thank you for the suggestions. I will let you all know how the NT3 works.
The only thing i need to figure out now is how to connect the NT3 to the Avaya 4610SW IP phone. I can use the PC 3.5mm cables combined with an adapter, but i dont know if the plug is RJ9/10 or 11 or they have some kind of serial connection I just dont know what it is.confused.gif

the rx700s are nice, LOT bigger than the steelseries headphones, but very nice and padded.

I just dont know how the Zalman will perform with the 5.1 playing war sounds.
post #356 of 471
It will perform just fine. If you have the Mic clipped to your headphone cable or shirt collar, try moving it downward and see if it picks up less noise from your headphones.

My headphones do not play the game audio. What part of 5.1 translates to headphones?
The Stereo headphones are TeamSpeak. I now have JVC HARX700.

If I were to use something like the Plantronics Audio Switcher - would it affect my soundcard's built-in amp? Kind of a dumb question considering 1 wire going strait to another - but I just want to make sure before I get one.

Denon dt770 is no longer the best gaming headphone buy now at the $150 price range. Ultrasone HFI580/HFI550/DJ1/Ozma 5 does better positional audio with the same amount of bass.
