“ Heard these at a gaming convention. Wanted to buy a pair riht there and then, but they were not allowed to sell them at the con, so I went to their site, picked up the black/gold version with a 40% discount. Sixty bucks for these seems like I stole them. Here's why... They sound FANTASTIC!!! I never heard the v1's, but I own a pair of sennheiser 650's, also...” --Jason4774
“This is a GAMING HEADSET review. It is NOT a headphone review. The website has this in the WRONG category, and I have contacted the webmaster.

I actually prefer these to the A40s, they...” --jimmy895

“Once upon a time I played an online game and found myself in need of both a microphone, and unrelatedly, a new pair of closed headphones for general music listening in the office. Seeing as gaming headphones go from $50 to $250, I figured, in the Hi-Fi world, the $200 mark is an excellent entry point, so here we are. If you're looking for a pair of headphones for music, I'll save you the time...” --DeeKay10
