They are also comfortable. I wore them all day watching e3. Only removing them for food or going to the loo.
They work well with Razer surround as well, which I use when I game.
They go for about 170 on eBay.
+1 on the Audio Technica ATH-A900X (closed) headphones.
I added Hifiman HE Velour ear pads to my A900Xs.
There is also the AKG K550s, sometimes there are good price for used and refurbs on eBay.
I bought my refurb K550s off eBay, from HarmonAudio (AKG).
