i have had both the barracuda and trittons (analog and usb versions)
short answer- avoid both
pro :the barracuda has good sense of direction, is comfortable.
con:sounds like hell. what little bass exists is only from the side speakers, when a sound is in front or behind there is no bass at all. the mids and highs are horrible sounding, literally like somebody shoved a bunch of 5 cent speakers from china in a headphone cup
these also have a rep for breaking
tritton 5.1 headsets.
pro: comfy, great mic, decent sense of direction
con: very weak sound, only a hair better than the barracuda. feels loose on your head, it will fall off with any sudden movement
