I am currently on hold with a DENON AHD-7000 and later today found out about the Fostex TH-900 and Audeze LCD 2 and 3. I heard D7000 is good for gaming through Mad Lust Envy Heaphone Gaming Guide. For the Fostex and Audeze, one review had all 3 and he showed his D7000 sitting in the case (which means it's not as good as Fostex and Audeze).
I have a Asus Xonar STX and will be playing Call of Duty Black Ops 2 mostly. I haven't found any reviews for the Fostex or Audeze that have been used for gaming. Are the positional cues really good for the Fostex and Audeze? I am primarily trying to get good surround sound. I gave my 5.1 speakers to my brother so I am stuck with 2.1 currently.
I bought the Beyerdynamic MMX300 headset which sounded nice but the sound was really overlapped and I had a hard time telling where stuff was coming from in the game.
Also, is the Denon D7100 Headphone better than the D7000 for gaming? How about Sennheiser HD 800?
