At that price I could have gotten AKG K701, Senn HD600, Grados SR80... etc... So they have a hard time living up to its price...

Could almost get the Logitech Z-5500 lol with that much. I know audiophiles are probably all over these, but €200 for earphones is just wrong lol, especially when you can get a pretty good pair for €30, I wouldn't spend more than €100 on headphones, probably no more than €30 on earphones, I spent €60 on a pair of subwoofer headphones, that's a lot even for me lol.

The ones that came bundled with my sony mp3 satisfy me 100%, that model should be worth some 40$ if sold separately, its bass is what i love the most and i dont believe if was to spend 200 on a new pair i would be more satisfied than i am now, they might be a little better but whats in it for costing all that money??

MAJOR fail.

You can get SO much better for the money.

While I like the design, every other Creative heatphone ever has been bad.

all form, no function. i'm willing to bet my $40 earbuds sound better than these, and they don't look half as gaudy.

let me paste something I quoted a couple weeks ago.

Surround sound speakers certainly have their place in the gaming world. But they’re more skewed towards social interacting for when you’re gaming with mates, or enjoying a single-player title. The problem with surround sound speakers is, short of expensive equipment and perfect placement, it can be difficult to pinpoint sounds as accurately as with headphones. Sure, you’ll be able to differentiate your front left from your rear right, but you’ll usually have trouble distinguishing the various levels (game world heights or lows) of sound. When it comes to the online arena, you may be surprised by how much a pair of 5.1 (at least) surround sound headphones can make a difference.

You could probably get something that sounds better in an earbud form factor for €200. Like for instance Yuin PK1 / OK1 hell I bet even the PK2s and OK2s and 3s will sound better than these Creative buds. If you want designer buds that sound great get the B&O A8 which sound good but not quite up to the Yuin's standard.
