Price for performance, these are up top of my list. They surprised me as I would also say the 555's or 700.
Corsair doesn't make any of their own products that I know of, they rebrand other companies products.

Logitech G930 Wireless headset. Perfect gaming headset. I have had this for a couple months and I use it a couple hours a day and it hasn't disconnected a single time. Cost me $130 at Best Buy. Has Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound. Literally sounds like you are watching a movie in a movie theater.

Very highly recommended. Increased my k/d in MW2 by quite a bit too because I could hear footsteps extremely well.

The k702 has epic soundstage in Its price range, however hd800 stays king of soundstage.

Quick question, what's the difference between ATH-A700 vs the ATH-AD700?

A700s are slightly bassier and closed back so sound doesn't leak near as much as the AD700s, but the soundstage is also slightly more limited than the AD700s.

What is so daunting about open-backed headphones? They're much better for gaming.

ATH-A700: Closed-back (more bass)
ATH-AD700: Open-back (better sound stage)

The Sennheiser 555s may be an option, as well. They're open-backed, but provide you with more bass than the ATH-AD700s. However, you're going to need a sound card with a sub. Either way, though, you're going to need a sound card. Asus Xonar DG?

Before you consider the HD555s, read this review comparing the AD700s to them.

If you want a sound card then JVCs + Asus Xonar DG or DS will land you the best value for your money at about $100 total. If you're willing to go over $100, then by all means consider the ATH-AD700s + Xonar.
