the #1's are now the beyerdynamic DT1350s wink.gif
Many who have tried both prefer the DT1350 everytime. That said, if you can get the HD 25 II for $160-200, it is very good value for portable headphones.

But I have read some reviews or comments about these, that the trittons seem to have a lot of problems with them, and also 5.1 is just a gimmick.

What should i get?? My budget is probably around the $200 mark.
ok, there are many places named Newcastle, so what country are you in?
Both you suggested as horrid.

Sennheiser RS180 Wireless headphones for around my room
Monster Beats by Dre (Black) for travel and when out of RS180 range
Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset for multiplayer gaming
Apple's earbuds with iPhone controls for at the gym and around town

I know it isn't the greatest selection of cans, but I got all three for pretty damn cheap and am happy enough with them. My next move is probably to add some good wired Sennheiser's from their HD series for around the house and traveling rather than just the Beats. I know a lot of people don't like the Beats (or Monster for that matter) and while I would never buy a cable from Monster I do like the sound the Beats put out, and got them for pretty cheap brand new. Or maybe to replace my stock Apple earbuds for some higher quality earbuds that can do iPhone control too.

Australia. And yes that is why i posted here first! But I'm not sure if it is the right section :x

edit: would the ATH AD700 and the zalman mic work with xbox? I know it will with pc, and is it worth bothering about a sound card, or would the onboard be alright??

Any ideas or suggestions to narrow down the options please let me know!

Thanks,

Dkotek
any other suggestions anyone? about to pull the trigger on my build and accessories!

There's a lot of very favorable reviews for these cans on the internet. If you're interested I suggest you rummage around some of the more audio gear reviewers and gather info from as many sources as you can. For the price, the quality of the construction, the aesthetics, the sound signature and durability all sound absolutely phenomenal.They've apparently got very strong bass, and somewhat recessed mids. which is ok with me because I have a very neutral soundcard. Of course, like any popular, cheap and well-reviewed item it has also gathered a sizeable group of haters that will compare them to $500+ cans and say that they the M50 sucks im comparison, without considering these cans cost 5x less lol.

I'll be sure to give you some feedback thoguh once I get them, burn them in a little, and put them through the gauntlet.
