Best $50 Closed Gaming Headphones/Headset?

    It’s time for a new thread as my requirements have changed a little.  Namely, my budget for a headphone/headset has dropped from $100 to around $50 after I realized I need an upgrade for my onboard sound (as well as Dolby Headphone) so an ASUS Xonar DX shall soon be on its way.
    Other requirements are the same:
    Closed/Around ear/Circum-aural (unfortunately, this really is a requirement, otherwise I would have already bought the AD700)
    Doesn't need an amp
    Works well with Dolby Headphone
    Good for a variety of games including FPS where I want directional accuracy (CoD series, RAGE, Crysis etc), Driving (F1, Dirt 3), RPG (Diablo 2 & 3, Skyrim), NBA 2K/Live Series etc.
    I have read Mad Lust Envy’s excellent post, but most of the headphones listed there are either too expensive, open, or both, so am looking for some fresh ideas.

    Hmmm, thanks for the reply - I've been reading about them for a couple of hours now, and it sounds like they may well be what I need!
