I've been looking for some new headphones seeing as mine have lost all sound from the left side. I wanted one with a mic but I can't find any good ones with one. I saw the Beyerdynamic DT234Pro had a mic but its also a closed headphone and I hate that muffled feeling, it's like having your head in a helmet or something. Also for the fact when I can't hear my voice properly I end up shouting which is even worse when I want to use a mic. So I've narrowed it down to 3 headphones. Audio Technica ATH-AD700 Beyerdynamic DTX800 Audio Technica ATH-AD400 What do you think? Should I get one of these? Or maybe another one I haven't said? I'd probably prefer open headphones with a good mic but it seems any good headset is closed. :\

There's nothing wrong with closed cans. I'm listening to Qntal through Beyer DT770/Pros right now. But I disgress...

What is important to you, here? Just a mic? Positioning? Soundstage? Headstage? Sound quality or reproduction? Massive bass? Music? Movies? Games?

I'm guessing games, in which case you probably don't care at all about high-end cans, and since you haven't learned the benefits of closed cans, you'll probably hate IEMs...
