Thanks! I didn't even notice, i've been gone all week. I just got home to the comps today. Thank goodness for, my wife keeps turning off those clients when I'm not looking!

I cannot recommend you a headphone, just warn you not to use ebay to buy audio equipment from Asian countries, expecially when it's low price.

It goes on and on, just look up fake sennheisers from ebay in your preferred search engine.
Thanks, good to know. I'd decided to pass under the assumption that what sounds too good to be true probably is too good to be true, but it's good to have that confirmed. At this point I'm probably going to go with the sennheiser as soon as I see them on a decent sale. Although the corsair's are still tempting @ under $100.
