I got a new desk, and really don't want to go all out with speakers anymore.
So i'm looking to get a good set of THX 2.1 set of speakers. I've seen Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 and the Logitech® Z-2300. I play alot of games, and watch alot of media (Music videos/Music).
And since i'm not going to have anymore 5.1 speakers, i'm looking to get a good set of headphones with an "equal" experience.
Something I can take to LAN's and have great/good sound.

Any ideas on the headphone part, and anyone here have experience with these speakers? Thanks in Advance.

5.1 "virtual" headphones are garbage. May I ask your budget for headphones?

Not really sure, as they aren't the no. 1 priority.
I really want to get some THX 2.1 speakers first.
But i'm open to headphones as long as they aren't ridiculously priced ($200+)

The Klipsch 2.1 THX's are amazing.
I have them.
250wts of brutality!
Amazing speakers, you'd love them. So much bass, and its very defined. Im a sound nut, a buff if you will, and im picky. I love these.

My room mate has a set of the Logitech Z-2300's. They're awesome sounding. As for headphones, how bout a pair of Sennheiser HD555s? Paired with your X-Fi you can get sweet directional sound out of them.

I'm not looking for "all out" bass, so how is the "speaking" portion (settings aside) on the logis' and klispchs? I listen to alot of rap, rock, and old old 60's stuff.
Where is a good place to get the HD555s? and what would be a good price for them?
