My soundcard: ASUS Xonar D2

I'm looking for new headphones for myself with high sound quality! The usage is for gaming, music listening (and seldom some movies)... I've done A LOT of research and stuffed with all these reviews there are (Newegg, Amazon etc.).

- Roccat Kave (
- Speedlink Medusa NX 5.1 (
- Razer Barracuda HP-1

They all have 5.1 sound, which I want, but Barracuda's build quality is really critisized by many users...

So now, it's between Roccat Kave and Speedlink Medusa NX 5.1 - Medusa 13€ cheaper. Which one would you recommend, or is there some other good headphone set?

You may want to consider the Razer Carcharias headephones . You can get them for $70 on Amazon, & the reviews seem to be better than those of th Barracuda HP 1's




You can also read reviews on Newegg. I may get these myself in the spring. I need a new set of headphones anyway.

I'd stay away from the HP-1's; I went from them to my older Tritton AX Pro's (using a ASUS Xonar D2), and the HP-1's weren't even competitive in quality...
