Thanks for answer. There seem to be some really crazy opposite opinions about xb600. i even emailed the dude on other forum and he says he likes em better than ath50m. wtf :P
So in fact - now I am looking for good isolating "fun" headphones for mainly gaming (immersively not competitevely) and some music, movies. (100 or sub 100$ please - I will use em with sbz or xonar dg. I am still reading on those 2 sound cards)
I will try to give xb600 a try in the store, If I will see them around to confirm(or not) Your disqust with them
No problem and trying them for yourself will definitely be the best choice for you. Sounds like you want over ear closed back correct?
I only had the CAL's for a short period of time so I don't remember if they isolated well or not but ultimately I wasn't a fan. Not bad at all, just didn't like them.
What about the new old school Sony's??
The MDR-7506? Great isolation and comfort crazy detail and under $100 ($85 new on Amazon) may want to check there.
Just a thought
