    reposting cuz no one replied in the hardware forum!

    my logitechs broke the sound on them has gone incredibly buzzy. i've tried a cheap set of in ear head phones which work fine, so it's definately the headset. massively upset cuz i did like them and now i need new ones. these are the ones i had:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Logitech-St...1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1213716316&sr=8-1

    i just wana know what you use and if you got any suggestions?

    the primary use will be gaming and listening to music and a little voip. i want it to be USB, have a mic, and also work with a mac and pc (i skype a lot on my mac) it's also got to be pretty durable, i have a habit of giving my headset a few unneccessary knocks. if it can be wireless in someway that also be very appealing as i've developed clutters of wire all over the place, but this isn't a desperate thing...it would just be very nice budget ideally £30 tops, i paid about £25 for my logitechs at the time, but then wished i'd bought better. but if you can recommend anything worthwhile i'll look into it

    I was impressed by the 360 wireless headset, so I bought the PC version (it's just a black 360 wireless headset with the usb reciever).
    However, I've yet to get it to work properly in either XP or Vista.

    you could get the creative fatal1ty headset. i intend to get one since its at a good price, good quality and looks pretty good. i belive overclockers uk is selling a set for 23 quid incl. vat. when you add shipping, it comes to about 27 quid, plus, you get a free game (call of juarez...which you can sell)
