Hello all! I am looking to get some nice headphones around $125 to listen to all types of music, mostly rock though, and to game in. The headphones use will be all on the pc. I was looking at the audio-technica ath-a700's, but read a review somewhere that told me I can find much better for less. I was also looking at the HD-555's but they seem kinda old. (Released in 04'??).
My budget can stretch but I really don't want to go past $150.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

so where do I go from here?



I like my Audio Technica ATH-AD500s
My JVC HA-RX900s are on back order, who knows for how long.
Try the JVC HA-RX900s, they are going for about $50 cheaper then the
Audio Technica ATH-A700s.
