1) What's the best headphones for gaming under $50?

2) What's the best value headphones ever to hit the market?

3) Is Headphones better then a 60watt Surround Sound Harmon Kardon speakers with a Soundblaster 7.1?

4) I was looking up some sites on headphones and I want to know what does "mw" means?

just for reference. i have the sennheiser hd 280 pros. msrp of 200 but i got guitar center to price match a price i got from the internet of 80 usd. they sound great. and if you do get headphones, make sure you get a decent amp. you'd be surprised in the difference in sound.

only with an amp will your headphones reach their full potential.

and btw: the only downside the the grado's are their comfort factor. uncomfortable. i've heard of solutions of replacing their pads with some of sennheiser pads that you can order.
