The successor to the legendary HD 650, is the HD 660 S a worthy follow-up?

    These are a step up from the mainstream headphones people buy for their systems.

    A little expensive for me, but I can see why they cost as much. My cooler master headphones will have to do me a while longer!

  • Harris

    They are the market leaders. I spent a small fortune on their headphones last year and they are fantastic, much better than steelseries, razer et al.


    They need to make a blue tooth puc for the xp 500/510 to use on new xbox one. Or make a wireless version with optical connector
