I'd been using a40's for years until my new cat chewed the cord. Mine are old enough that they don't make the replacement anymore. I ordered a used cord off ebay but in the meantime I've been using my sony mdr cd2000 headphones. They are old, slightly beat up and less comfortable for extended sessions but wow they sound so much nicer than the Astros. So now I'm thinking it's time to upgrade.
I have narrowed down my headphone choices with great help from this thread. The only thing I could use a bit of advice on is the mic. I am a pc gamer so I have a few more options than console gamers. I would like to hear the op's thoughts on the BoomPro mic though. I like the idea of less cords and the boompro would combine the mic and headphones once again like my original a40 setup. If mle or anyone else has thoughts on beam forming mics or desktop cardioid mics like the Blue Yeti, I'd like to hear that too.
