So I've taken the advice from the recent pages and removed the likes of vmoda m100 from my short list.
It now consists of...
Philips Fidelio X1
Beyer Dynamic DT 990 Premium
I'll buy whatever one gets the most love, or if someone recommends something similar that's unanimously better. (these will be replacing my rattling Q701s that replaced my rattling Q701s..)
Detachable cable is almost a must ( i had Sennheiser PC 350s and had a lot of problems with replacing the cable)
I wear my headphones almost all day/night so they have to be comfy
(my soundcard is the STX
my computer is i5 3570k, sli gtx 670, yamakasi catleap 120hz 27" monitor.
i need something bad arse that finishes off my kewl gaming rig)
