Headphones

Iam looking for some top of the line headphones. Anyone got any suggestions? Really dont know what to buy.
Iam currently looking at the Sennheiser RS140. Which has most of my specs but not all.
Looking for:
Wireless, RF or BlueTooth
Great Sounding
Rechargable
Has a base
Preferbly surround sound, 5.1 6.1 7.1
Iam planning to use it for everything i do on the computer. Recording, TV, DVD, Gaming, etc.
Bluetooth will be real nice since iam aiming for a Bluetooth only enviroment now.

And does anyone know how much the Sony MDR-CD3000 is worth now adays? Done a search on it, but dont think its accurate.

What are you guys using now?

Re: Headphones

lol you have.
Medusa 5.1 Surround Sound Headphones
Zalman Theatre 6
Sony MDR-DS5000 Surround Sound Headphones
iRock! Theater 5.1 Surround Sound Headphones
Kinyo Ky-100 5.1

Most of these are actually pc hardware brands. Just google them for more info and reviews. Some of the reviews are actually quite entertaining.

Can't really go wrong with sennheiser. Sony has a few good wireless headphones too.

Re: Headphones

A friend of mine told me that these are very good. I'm currently thinking about buying the "Music Series One".

[edit]

Forget what I said... I didn't realize that you were looking for wireless

Excellent headphones for games. They are true surround sound with 3 speakers in each ear. I wouldnt use them for music though, they simply dont have the response needed, and the bass is very loose.

They sounded ok with some EQ'ing with my X-fi card, but i deffinately wouldnt reccomend it for anything with onboard sound (which tend to lack a good EQ).

how can headphones be true surround sound? even with different speakers in each of the phones, surely their proximity to your ear makes any kind of psychoacoustic difference negligable?
