I wear hearing aids, so I don't like IEMs

I'm just thinking for simplicities sake I will get the M50's, another GTX 470 and a samsung F3 1TB.

Be cognizant that there are 2 versions of the M50...one with a straight cable and one with a coiled cable.

Yeah...they are an incredible can for the price. Definitely a very good price/performance ratio.

Straight vs. coiled is a personal preference I suppose...it has no effect on sound quality.

Portable and closed? Looks like it's gonna be either the Audio Technica ATH-M50 or Sennheiser HD25-1 II for $200.

I have the straight cable and it works awesome for me. I use a lot of the length, so that I can route the cord completely out of my way when im moving the mouse or typing.
