Hello guys,
I'm looking for a good headphones for music (Dubstep, Electro etc..) and for gaming (CoD, BF, MMO games etc..), I do not need an microphone.
 
Currently I have the SteelSeries Siberia V2 hooked up to my Asus Xonar DG, When I will buy the new headphones I will buy the Asus Xonar Esscence STX soundcard.
 
Thanks for the help!

The Siberia V2 is already pretty decent already. Used it for awhile before mine went kaput and kabewm. Anyway, for below $200, buydig.com has an offer for audio tech's ATH A900X. Try them out! Loved it when I borrowed them from a friend. If you don't like it, sell it to me. I'll be happy to own one of my own XD

I wholeheartedly recommend them. Have the non-pro version myself though, but AFAIK they should be pretty similar with a bit of a bass difference. Very engaging for music, movies and games. Speech sounds a bit recessed on them compared to other headphones that I have, but not so much that it'd be troublesome even at lower volumes. Regarding long listening sessions (which is probable for gaming) they're really good. Probably the comfiest headphones I've tried.
