Ok well today has been a bad day :( My Creative Fatal1ty headset died on me, First the microphone stopped working and i thought no biggie i'l use another one until yesterday when I turned around and the cable snapped. After trying to weld the wires together on my oven I gave up and need to buy a new set .... I saw this pair http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=SP-000-ZA and creamed myself. I do want to keep this as cheap as possible without comprimising sound quality and the sound from my old pair was amazing plus I need it to have a 3.5mm jack not a usb one :) thanks for bothering to read about this :toast:

Is your sound card 5.1? (That is what these are intended for right?) I don't know man, the predecessor (ZM-RS6F) have been around since 2004 and I haven't heard much about them. When buying new headphones I wouldn't think Zalman, but you probably have read the same reviews I have.

I've looked through a lot of reviews and they seem to be all praising it so I might just buy this pair and see for myself and yes my soundcard is 5.1 :)
