    I like my set of 1500s, nothing I can really complain about outside of overall weight.

    Hi are they hard to configure or just plug and play, the corsair ones are usb how does that work, the last ones i saw and tried you had to plug them into the back of the tower.

    They are pretty much plug and play on the basic level of cans with a mic. As for the 7.1 and EQ adjustments, you need to install the software, no big deal.

    Vengeance 1500 is about £60-70 here, so I suppose that is more or less the budget too.

    Budget is £60 - £80 but the Corsair still looks good. I really only need them at night to play games so i don't wake grandaughter up.

    There are the Audio-technica A700s, KRK Systems KNS 6400, Shure SRH440, Sony MDRs, tons of HARX-700 variants available in around £80. All much better sounding than the Corsair and ROCCAT headsets. A set of good headphones and a semi decent clip-on microphone is much better bang for the buck.

    Then get a headphone, they offer much better sound quality for your money, and on top of that you get more choices.

    Here's a good place to start burning your money: Head-fi.org

    I have a 5.1 Teac headset with amp and its freaking heavy. I must say that I got old and comfort is the way to go when you use it at PC. All that 5.1 is nonsense and good old stereo headphones is the way to go.
