Audio Technica ATH-AD700X, should be about as good as any other headphone for FPS gaming.
I would rather have a Creative Labs sound card (AE-5?), for FPS gaming.

Maybe buy a second headphone, for a lot more then what the AD700X costs, for music and movie use.

I just watched a video test and it sounded like creative SBX sound a lot better. is ae-5 an updated version of SBX??
Both use the same Creative Labs SoundCore3D audio DSP processor chip
I'm guessing the AE-5 comes with a better DAC chip and an improved headphone amplifier.
I never use the SB-Z or AE-5, so can't say which you might prefer, for headphone surround sound.
