Gaming Headphones?

I'm looking to invest into a good pair of headphones for once since I seem to play alot of fps games and sound is kind of a big deal. I'm currently using motherboard sound, my board is a Biostar H61MGC. Now I'm looking to spend hopefully no more than 200ish.

What I've been debating is buying a pair of Audio Technica ATH-AD700s along with a ASUS Xonar DX 7.1

Option #2 was buying a pair of Sennheiser PC350s, but I may not be able to get a sound card in addition to this headset.

To any audio experts out there, are the Sennheisers worth the extra cash? Are they much better/better at all than the AD700s?

    well let me just recommend you an off-brand: somic g927
    it's a 7.1 gaming headset which cost me about 30$ and it is amazing:
    1. the sound is clear, high quality and noise canceling.
    2. the microphone is awesome as well: my friend has steelseries and it's a better mic then his.
    3. IT"S ******* CHEAP.
    i know all this cuz i own them, and i play bf3. trust me on this, don't spend so much money when you can buy something better and cheaper.
    there are other modules of course, some are better; but i can recommend you on this one cuz i have it.
    it's an off brand, so you can only get it on ebay though.
  3. Check out the Plantronics GameCon 780. A great 7.1 headset at a great price.
  4. Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset :) I use it and its so awesome, compared to the Logitech G330

    I may pick up a set of those. Those look sweet, and right about the max I would want to spend also.
