For your headphones: for less than $50 i'd go with Sennheiser HD457, for $50-$90, I'd go w/Sennheiser HD497, for more than that, Grado SR80, for even more, Grado SR125. Check URL=http://reviews.cnet.com/Music/4502-6468_7-0.html?tag=pageNav&orderby=-7eRating&qt=]here [/URL] for more 'phones.

I recommend you give the external side of the wood a nice finish to match the surroundings and paint the internals black. I assume you are going for a cockpit-like environment, so maybe some fancy instrument/LED panels are in order?
GOTTA have a joystick!

This really does sound cool and ull have to post pics or something on here when done.
I have had the pleasure of working for a constuction company and if you want this to last, ull have to build it sturdy. If you can make it from 2x4 studs and use 1/2in plywood for the sides and roof. Then use either a 8in slab or 2x10s put across sheeted with 3/4in plywood as a base. Make it sturdy especially with having alot of equipment in it.

I hope it works!!

Have you thought about dual monitors. It sounds like you already have two and that could add to the coolness factor.

Of the Mod not the Bawls.
