The headband and materials used are different too - that very likely results in a better haptic feeling.

CREATIVE SUCKS
i could probably go get a $15 card of e-bay that has vista driver that support a mic but a company that sells a $300 sound card cant write driver to support there product

to stay on subject the headphones look nice but they probably only work half way on vista (i think the left side doesn't come in)

Looks like a competitor to Razers and Asus' head phones (or whoever has those spiffy new headphones that was reviewed on here like a week ago)
