Pros
Ultra detailed mid range, crisp highs, comfort, zero distortion
Cons
light bass response, but accurate
Summary
Step one, get a good sound card. They're only 50 ohms but buying a proper sound card will bring true life into these. I chose the Sound Blaster X Fi Titanium HD for these specifically because the bass is a little weak on the headphones and it was renowned for being a little bit bass-happy, it's a perfect pairing. For my gaming laptop, I'll run them through a FiiO headphone amp.

I went almost a year without a proper PC sound card, and was pretty happy with them. I replaced a pair of PC 360's for them and although I didn't have a mic anymore, the sound quality and comfort actually went through the roof above and beyond them.

The detail in the mid range is so natural, smooth and accurate, it blows me away. The plush comfort of the ear pieces makes me forget I'm wearing them - sometimes I'll be sitting in silence for HOURS with them on and don't even think about it LOL.

The only drawback I have for these is the fact that my girlfriend can hear me gaming from the other end of our condo because of the open back design.

Do your research, hopefully try some out somewhere, open back is a feature only found on very high end headphones that aren't afraid to let you hear themselves perform. It's acoustically correct, and for a hi-fi headphone for PC usage, these are MADE for gaming. Shooters especially. Battlefield 4's bullet impact makes you feel like you've actually been shot. The crack of a sniper rifle sounds real. The boom of a tank.

I'll stop, go buy them. Wish I had a mic for them... but go buy them. Don't forget to get a high end sound card.

Pros
Awesome look
Very comfortable for hours on end
Open-back design that lets outside sound in
Cons
None (Unless you want closed back headphones)
Summary
As someone who has used Sennheiser headphones with my computer in the past (Sennheiser 555 and PC 360s) these headphones meet my expectations for sound quality and comfort. I'm no audiophile, so I would have difficulty describing the difference in sound, but music sounds great and the headphones work fine for gaming.

The headphones are very comfortable, the ear pads sit around your ear. If you were in a hot environment your ears might get a little warm/sweaty, so use these in a comfortable temperature.

Pros
Amazing sound, huge sound stage (great for gaming), excellent detail. I love the beige and wood grain looks.
Cons
My preference is a coiled cord. The straight cord supplied is crazy long. No case or stand provided. Some may not like the open-backed design as you can hear ambient noise around you and others can hear what you're listening to due to sound leakage, but they aren't really meant for walking down the street so...
Summary
I use them primarily for gaming paired with a clip-on mic and they beat any gaming headphones hands down. They also are awesome for music. Bass is very present, but not overpowering so the mids and highs are not drowned out. Excellent for a wide variety of music genres.

These cans are also ridiculously comfortable (I seriously don't even feel them on my head for extended listening or gaming sessions).
