    Are you a critical listener? Take the mp3 test

    Go to and take the test using the best headphones you can. See if you can tell the difference between a 128kbps and 320kbps mp3 file. They use a random selection of music, some of it's a little disingenuous as they pick some tracks that would tend to mask compression artifacts, so...

    Does anyone know any good inexpensive headphones for gaming/movies

    I have some HP700 which sound great with music, but not having an amp of any kind makes them not that good to use with my pc, and the short coiled cable isn't the best to plug, not to say they aren't exactly the most comfortable headphones I've wore, that being said, can anyone tip me about some...
