+1 for Audio Technica AD700. I decided for gaming, excellent 2 channel headphones trump 5.1 headphones. I forget the audiophile lingo, but basically they are "open" as opposed to "closed"(the majority of headphones) so it provides better directional positioning, at the cost of a slight amount of bass. Coupled with a Xonar d2x with dolby headphone, i love them for First person shooters. I can hear sounds that I couldnt before, like subtle sounds in shooters, and music. If you feel like getting into the technical aspects of headphones, the forums of is a great resource.
