Hey guys.

I just got a Creative Sound Blaster Zx...
Now I want a set of kick ass headphones.
I dont mind if they have a mic or not, as I can use the mic on the Zx.

But I dont know what to get

Money isnt really an object for the perfect set.

I would really love for surround, either Virtual or not (not sure which is best).

These will be used for Movies, Gaming and Music.

And I was thinking of using the attached Zx mic and headphone (ACM) slot so doesnt need to be wireless, as I will use that as the control unit.

Thanks for any feedback
