they don't cup your ear or seem to be surround sound, but its hard to ignore the hype around these headphones.

grado SR60's are great, cheap open headphones for music

however, they lack a broad soundstage, making them not very favorable for games

Thanks for all of the advice and recommendations. I was originally looking at the Zalmans and read a few good reviews. I don't need a mic with the headphones and I don't really need to spend my whole budget. I just want something that sounds good and allows me to track those darn enemies coming from all directions.

Not going to use it for music or movies, just gaming.

I might get the Zalman's but one draw back it, i'll have to unplug my z-5500 and plug in the 3 plugs to the headphones everytime I wanna use them. Well, I guess that isn't so bad???

Thanks Again!!!
