Ya I like the audio technica's Jim, for me more for music, though allot of guys swear by them for gaming on sites like headfi.org for the wide sound stage and positioning. My son uses the blue yeti for a mic on his hd555's , I tried the cheaper blue snowball haven't tested out his yeti yet.

I use a Phoebus sound card, I find it's loud enough for me without an external amp.

Never meant to say the Astro's were a step up from the Senn's. Just meant that I was stepping up in general. :P

Just got back from Canada Computers as I had to get a 3.5mm jack extension for my Siberia's. I was wondering if the sound quality would diminish using an extension?
