    which gaming headset?

    now i've got my alienware pc, g110 keyboard and deathadder mouse sorted out, i'm looking to replace my old yellowing £24 plantronics headset which sounds as flat as a steam-rollered pancake in bc2...

    been looking at these blighters:

    PC 350 ~£100
    high quality, closed-type with no gimmicks, but not tweaked for surround.
    http://www.sennheiser.co.uk/uk/home_en.nsf/root/private_headsets_pc_pro-gaming_502141

    PC 360 G4ME ~£150
    expensive, higher quality, open-type for long-usage, but not tweaked for surround.
    http://www.sennheiser.co.uk/uk/home_en.nsf/root/private_headsets_pc_pro-gaming_504122

    G35 ~£100
    looks cheap, lesser quality, but with 7.1 Surround Sound gimmicks.

    Megalodon ~£100
    looks funky, lesser quality, but with Maelstrom and 7.1 Surround Sound gimmicks.

    Or is there something better out there for gaming?

    i only want my headset for gaming, so i don't care if it sounds pants for music and video. i just want to hear people before they hear me and have better quality surround sound!
    ;)

    I've got the P350's and they are awesome... & very comfy
    i guess the 360's are the new version
    the other do seem like gimmicks

    get them you won't regret it

    Strange, this is such a great article for the performance of the wearability and audio quality of the speakers of these headsets, but what about the microphone performance? I want headphones exclusively for gaming. I hate giving up the performance of my Logitech surround sound, and am only doing it for the mic. Anyone got any comments on the mic performance of the Razer Carcharias or the Creative Sound Blaster Arena?

    Hi,
    creative Fatal1ty gaming headset HS-100 is my best experience ever. It is comfortable, cost effective & light in weight. And yes, the sound quality is excellent. You can use it not only for gaming but also other purposes. It is really awesome. Try it.

    Well the Creative Sound Blaster Arena that everyone hyped sooo much are f***** garbage! They broke on me yesterday because of thin plastic matieral on the left headphone-bracket.
    Now i cant repair my ,90€, still perfectly sounding headphones..
    When someone has any suggestions on repairing them, that would be awesome!!

    Have used Turtle Beach X4/X41's for the last 2-3 years on my Xbox and will hope to continue to do so on my PC. Love these headsets.

    Why not use a sound card with the PC 360s for Dolby 7.1? If I were looking in the $300 range that's probably where I'd go. You could also hook the new Ear Force X12 up (50mm) with a sound card.
