There is a lot of information on these forums and I am thankful for it. Having done my research I am a bit more confused on what I should buy and wanted advice from this community.
My usage would primarily be for PC gaming and movies with some light play on PS3 (I primarily play single player games). I currently own the Sennheiser HD201 but I feel the audio isn't very crisp and the bass can't really be felt. But those were only $40 (I live in Canada) so I did get my money's worth.
I was almost set on purchasing the Sony PS3 Elite Pulse headphones for $150, however I noted that the virtual surround sound does not work for pc games or movies not on the PS3. I then looked into the Astro A40s and A50 whereby I came across the forums here and noted that those gaming headsets do not provide the ideal sound quality.
In short I need recommendations for a headphone (or headphone and amp combination) that would not exceed $300, but I would prefer to stay towards the $200 range if possible. As per my understanding the studio headphones with good sound quality are only stereo, whereas I would like to get the surround sound experience.
