Looking for new headphones

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I need ideas!
Listen to a lot of music, watch tv shows/movies, and play games occasionally. I have Astro A40s right now, but I am thinking that with my new sound card that I should definitely upgrade from this headset.

mdr-v6/mdr-7506

I've had lots of experience with both of these and can recommended them without a doubt, I own a set of 7506s.

A good place to start looking is head-fi.org.

Tritton produces nothing other than junk. Don't waste your money.

Also listen to dubstep/drum and bass/metal, closed or open.
Budget: $200 w/ or w/o an amp.

Yeah i still play console due to the lack of pc games but Sennheisers are always a good choice.

I recommended the trittons for the 7.1 but yeah ive heard they are crap quality since they are a subsidiary of madcatz...Im surprised i own 3 razor products
