Need help picking new headphones

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Alright I'm looking for a pair of new headphones with a mic built in for LAN parties I'm going to be attending. Budget is not really an issue but I'm not looking to spend like $300. I'm looking for ones that are going to sound as good or close to my surround sound system. I've also got a X-FI Fata1ty so I've got a good source for them. I haven't bought headphones in about 5 years so I'm way out of the game on this one. Any ideas or spots with some good reviews? Thanks.

I checked the link from Medussa site to Creative's and there seems to be nothing in the forum about this issue. I saw the section where to check to make sure your settings are correct but not a whole lot more info. Has anyone had success/failure with these headphones and a X-FI?
