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

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.
