    why only two? would it not make more sense to review more than two? They've both turned out crap so what do we buy now ?

    I think this should be 'without them' ? :) Not a bad article, but I feel there's a much wider range of headsets to be covered!

    hang on a minute, I have the Sennheiser PC 161 ( I don't wear glasses) and I didn't find no foam cover for the mic.
    What the hell ? Have I got ripped ?

    This has been covered before. Waiting to get hold of all the headsets available would mean very infrequent reviews, and isn't a very efficient use of time.

    We've also introduced the related articles feature at the bottom of the page which should help readers find other similar products we've reviewed so they can compare them against each other.

    Yes, I'm afraid you have got ripped, sorry. I've got one of the little mic covers sitting in my desk right now, but don't worry because the PC 161 looks better with it off IMO.

    Surely a mistake - we haven't FINALLY found something that is cheaper in the UK than the USA?!? Somebody better call ROB at the Department of Unjustified Exploitative Price Hikes to tip him off.

    Noise cancelation? 5.1 support? Things that are common in looking for a gaming headset?

    I'm sorry to tell you but you have no idea , i'm currently using a sennheiser pc160 ( of wich the 161 is just the same without " bugs " ) and it's superiour to the siberia's both in sound quality , surround and microphone ! The only thing actually better on the siberia are the looks , they're pretty damn hot i have to admit :>

    grtz

    I always reccomend that someone get a closed can, possibly the sony mdr-v6 ot beyer dt770.

    Then after that, pic up a good clip on mic.

    Thanks a lot for putting the US prices along with the GBP in reviews! Makes things a lot easier for us Yanks.

    "The sound quality is decently passed down through the earpieces, but those massive cushions could put off some. "

    that seems like all he said.. they're 'decent' :eyebrow:

    what about their sound performance? things like surround sound placement (i know they arent true 5.1 but they can still provide directional sound) i would have thought that sound quality would have been a major point of the article... i mean aesthetics and practicality are important, but at the end of the day, i choose my cans on sound quality, and im guessing most people wont want to buy more than one set of headphones so those that give good sound quality are a better buy, as they could double as multimedia headphones? also, with such a price difference between the two sets, surely sound quality must be differential? or is this just me?

    Thanks for putting the US prices as well, its weird how we pay so much more for the fatality and yet so much less for the senheiser, the PC150 and 160 series have also been cheap low cost headset solutions over here.
