Well ok, but it's only $20 more. If you got the ATH-A500's you would be very very satisfied with your purchse.

Don't go with 7.1 or 5.1 headphones they aren't better then regular headphones and they cost more.

They are worse as they have poor sound quality. You have until wednesday/thursday early morning until PC160's go out of the sale. :/
