Quality Headphones
 
Looking for some good headphones for:

Gaming (XBL)
Watching TV/movies (roommate sleeping)
Music

willing to spend upwards of $200 as I use my headphones a lot. Work afternoons and roommate is sleeping when I get home. Completely covering the ears is a must. A built in mic would be Ideal with audio controls.

AKG or AudioTechnica. I Absolutely love my AKG's.

What's your sound preference? Bassy? Accuracy/Detail? Soundstage? Well at this point it's gotta be a closed set of headphones.

The audio technica ATH-M50 fits your bill quite well and sounds very good, but I doubt it'll work with xbox

The mic isn't really a point worth mentioning (I wasn't thinking) can't use the mic b/c I'm jacked into my receiver.

Sounds good. In that price range the M50 would be a good bet, as well DT770 Pro/880s are good choices

I might pick these up, comfort and sound are equally important and this vid was helpful--
