So, I do a lot of PC gaming. Like, too much.
I currently have two perfectly-working pairs of headphones, one the Sony XB-600 and the other the Logitech UE4000.
I also listen to a lot of music, mainly electronic (Wolfang Gartner, Deadmau5, Bassnectar, etc.).
I love the two headphones for music but I know there is better, and someone locally is offering a late-80's pair of MDR-V6's for $40.
I asked around about using either my current Sonys or Logis for PC gaming (looking for some decent virtual surround sound) and they said that my best bet would be to get something like the MDR-V6 and pair with a low-mid range soundcard like a Xonar. Would you agree?
PS I mainly play FPS and other games with big boom-y sounds, I'm a huuuge fan of how Battlefield Bad Company 2 sounded if that means anything.
I guess long story short;
Would MDR-V6 + ~$50 sound card be good for both electronic music and virtual surround sound during intense PC gaming sessions?
