    The Feenix Aria is (supposedly) quite the gaming headset, being originally built by a non-gaming OEM company (Yoga) that has done good work for some good headset brands (Fischer Audio and Brainwavz), as per the head-fi thread: Feenix Aria Studio-Grade Gaming Headphones

    They can be found here: Feenix Aria- HiFi Gaming Headset or on Amazon. (Currently on sale for $219 -- went for $349 two years ago) Fancy genuine Japanese Pine wood cups for that aesthetic touch (and, supposedly, aiding in the soundstage).

    Tempted to pick a pair up sometime and see how the Aria compares to my Philips SHP9500 w/V-Moda BoomPro or my Audio-Technica ATH-AG1.

    Edit: Link for 2 Head-Fi reviews are here: 1st review has comparisons to the Sennheiser HD600, Audio-Technica ATH-M50x, and Audio-Technica ATH-A900x Feenix Aria Studio Grade Hi-Fi Headphone and Mic

    Damn, those are fancy....just tempted to pick them up because they are fancy.

    Trying to find some comparisons...

    I currently use ad900x's and have a700s as a backup...

    They look nice. A shame I refuse to buy anything with 'Gaming' in the name.

    So tired of marketers tagging that crap onto everything from mice to oranges so 'gamers' will buy it.

    Not really a "gaming" headset. They are really Yoga CD-2500's with a lavelier microphone.

    I prefer wireless headsets for gaming to be honest.
