You say that, but the 380s aren't without their problems. I've plugged them into my AVR to play games and I'm just not impressed with the sound quality. I think they are far better for music.
The curly cord isn't friendly at all, save entanglement issues and durability benefits. For example, the cord likes to get under my forearms while typing at my desk and it's a bit of a false length, because as the cord length stretches, it pulls on your headphones.
Also, the 380s could really benefit from some extra amplification to fully use them.
So yeah, the Klipsch may be a step down in quality, but if the inline controls work with my phone and are a bit more comfortable, for $50 why not?
