society misfit- Shure some nice cans there! Yes the carbon fiber faceplate on the Furutech GTX-D Pure Copper Outlet is real and weighs several ounces! Best of all of my Audio equipment that runs off of ac power from the World's First Copper Outlet now sounds at least an order of magnitude better than it did before!

As I was about to order Sennheiser PC 333D, there is another contender in same price range

Tritton AX: Gaming Headset with 720 Dolby Digital Surround Sound (PS3/Xbox 360/PC/Mac): Amazon.co.uk: PC & Video Games

now what?

I need to make decision quickley now otherwise I won't be buying anything

Sennheiser 504126 PC 333D Gaming Headset: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

Turtle Beach Ear Force HPA2 Gaming Headset PC: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

Here's a list fo the best surround sound headphones. Best Surround Sound Headphones—Headphone Reviews of Sennheiser RS 130 Wireless Surround Sound Headphones and more

The only other thing I would add is to hopefully find a pair with noise reduction

Hi there -- for serious Audiophile use I wouldn't bother with headphones at all -- some nice Studio Grade Mission speakers etc will do the job nicely -- remember this is for separate serious Music listening --not for your average compressed mp3 from an Ipod or output from a laptop sound card.

As for Noise Cancelling -- these are intended for use when travelling and if you DO travel a lot on planes / trains where there are crying babies or people yelling inane things on Mobile Phones then you will find they really ARE worth having.

One thing the OP omitted to mention was the SOURCE for the audio. It's no point in having the most perfect set of headphones on the planet if the original Source sound is horrible in the first place.

Cheers

jimbo45,
You make a valid point. Where background noise is high then the noise cancelling is nice. My point is a good pair of headphones will blow the same money in speakers right out of the picture. Now that being said can my K701's replace my reference systems.....not on your life !

My K-701's replace my Reference System after midnight when the rest of the family is asleep.
