Hi i am seeking a pair of closed headphones for competative gaming. fps games.
 
Preferences:
 
Good isolation, gonna use them on lan events.
 
Good soundstage, i know its better on open then on closed but i want as good i can get. Really need to hear footsteps and details.
 
Comfort, so i can use them for like 5 hours straight 
 
Music type: Mostly rock 
 
 
A while back i got recommend the Ultrasone Pro 900 but the comfort was not good for me.
 
After that i have been looking around in forums and a couple of headphones that alot recommended was

MMX 300 in 600Ohm versíon on Creatives big card with the headphone amp built in and EQ set to -5dB in the bass department. If you don't need the gaymers 5.1 emulation stuff, go for the asus sonar essence ST/STX

Done.

It does sound better than the standard 770 32 Ohm. More detail, better control. The PRO 770 clamps too tight and thumps more than all other 770s. I think for 5 hours you will get a headache with those. They are actually more a drummer headphone.
