Out of that list, the only ones that have a good reputation around here are the 280 Pro and the K 27 i (which is a newcomer, so not many people have experience with it). Another good gaming 'phone in that price range is the Audio-Technica ATH-A500 (A500 for short), which can be ordered from www.audiocubes.com.

AudioTechnica can only be bought in USA and i live in Norway, and i want the headphones by next friday... It is an option... I wonder how long it takes to ship things from audiocubes (no norway is not the capitol of sweden)

Well, a $50 jump from the 280 is worth it, if he can. Also, the 770-80 does not need an amp to be an excellent gaming can.

Had to go with the k27i. Love my k26p. They are a little fragile, keep that in mind if they are going to see abuse.

Umm no. They can only be bought in japan, but audiocubes imports them and ships worldwide. Another vote for the A500.

Wrong website

And I'll just recapitulate that audiocubes.com and bluetin.com ship all over the world.

Why do you need closed? Will you be in a noisy environment?

I would suggest looking at the Sennheiser HD 485 too. It's a good gaming headphone for somewhat cheaper, but is also open. With cheaper headphones, open is usually better.

But out of the ones you posted, I'd have to pick the Koss Pro-4aat or 4aa. I've used it, and it sounds quite good.
