    lol, I doubt that even though I hear Sennheiser is good as balls I still love the barracudas it really does sound good in games, no bass but once your in a game the bass comes out and its sounds great BUT ill get those just to replace the barracudas for now think I can get it at a walmart,lol

    No, WallMart won't have them, try looking for a Logitech Gamers Headset. Only about 25-30 bucks and are pretty good for a backup set.:toast:

    I have the Logitech gamers headset and it is really worth the money. Good bass and the mic is good too.

    Well, don't let the man control you. If you feel pressured, just say no.

    Here is my list of best headsets / headphones price performance wise: Sennheiser HD555, Razer Barracuda HP-1, Sennheiser HD595 (Really nice if you want premium listening experience), Sennheiser PC161, Sennheiser PC160 (Only a little worse, but I think that the price difference between the two is worth it), SteelSeries 5H and the rest.

    The best gaming headset is the Razer Barracuda HP-1, but they are quite expensive. You might consider a pair of HD555 coupled with a clip-on microphone. The HD555 are a little better at reproducing music whereas the Razer Barracudas are a little better in games due to the 5.1 configuration.

    Hope you find a mighty fine headset.

    Best Regards
    Frederik Skovgaard
