Seriously, I haven't used my

for anything but PC games for 2 months now? What the hell? I listen to music in my car, on my crappy Klipsch stereo downstairs and the two most expensive systems I have: the K1000 and my upstairs stereo get NO playtime music-wise.

Should I get rid of it and get something more appropriate? I feel guilty having these fine cans and not using them for tunes.

So then you're cool with trading my DT 770-80s for your K1000? Great, I'll box them up for you.

I've used my K1000s for watching TV.

Of all the games I play, I feel like World of Warcraft put the most time into the audio. Really nice ambient soundtrack, and not too much compression on anything at all... I really can't hear it.

The first time you walk into the Undercity, past the broken bell and over the dead rose petals? My favorite moment in gaming audio, period.

Well, your probably more of a gamer than a music guy it sounds like. There are no rules, so why torture yourself by sitting in a chair and listening to music when you'd rather be gaming. The K1K's throw the biggest soundstage of any headphone - that's probbably why they sound so good for gaming.

I've never tried it for gaming, but do what you want to do. Don't feel like you have to live by other people's standards of how they listen.

You should only feel guilty if you are playing Serious Sam on a 17" crt with a 9600pro.

I use my k1k playing games (ie day of defeat source and hopefully the new red orchestra on steam), with a 17" crt and 6600gt, not to mention the 512mb of ram

Sell 'em and buy some CDs with the money.

P.S. not that there's anything wrong with you, but it seems like they're a bit too expensive/high end to use only for gaming, and a cheaper pair of cans will do just as well.
