And now for a dissenting opinion on the Panasonic HTF600. These are some of my least favorite headphones I've tried. After two months of misery trying to listen to them, I traded them off.
The Panasonics have dull, overbearing bass that overwhelms the mids. The mids are so recessed as to be hard to discern. And the highs produced by this set are one of its weakest areas, as it introduced distortion in many notes that was simply not there when listening to the same songs with other headphones. And there is no detail apparent in any register. Muddy and muffled are the best way I can describe them. And yes, I did burn them in for 70+ hours.
The pads were cheap feeling and sweat inducing, so I never found them comfortable to wear.
After all that, they were barely adequate for gaming or listening to tv broadcasts, but for music or movies, they simply didn't cut it.
If you can find the Creative Aurvana Live on sale at Amazon for $55-60 (which does happen periodically), you'll be much better off for both music and gaming, at least in my opinion.
