Speaking of that bug, the HE-400 is ~$250 on Razordog right now (with the velour pads). I know the 400i is coming out soon, but this sounds like a great deal. MLE makes them sound like a very attractive alternative to the X1 if you have a nice amp (hi, Change!) and don't mind the loss of the Boom-pro.
comfort wise I gotta weigh in.
It's 440 Grams. It's heavy, and u do get used to it but depending on your gaming sessions (I can go sometimes with friends for like 5-7 hours straight), i think it'd be bothersome. and the fact that the treble is an issue -it can be eqd, but that's not as much of an option on consoles.
I like my he 400s alot, but I just couldn't see myself ever using them for gaming too much and the weight is a big reason why.
