To be honest, these no longer look that good to me after reading this review, haha. For hardcore gamers, sure, I guess it has its use, but when it can't do OTHER things that well, it's kind of a turn-off. For $300, you can get a sweet set of Beyerdynamic cans or something that will be well-rounded for any purpose. Or Ultrasone for that matter (and yeah, I guess Sennheiser).

That said, I do find the design of these to be incredibly interesting, and I give Psyko credit for that. But for $300, that's a very hard price tag to stomach. It's not as though extreme engineering went into each one of the drivers... just the placement of them it seems.
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)
