surround sound headphones

  charles60 19:55 14 Jan 2011

At the moment i am doing a list of the bits i am going to buy in a few mths to build a super Game/Multimedia PC. I am happy with the list so far but now its come to get the surround sound headphones for gaming on my PC. The ones I have looked at so far are the Longitech G35 the Semmheiser PC350 also looked at the Razor Megalodon but on these i have heard there is quite a few problems with them especially with windows 7 64 bit even with the firmware updates. They are also saying you have got to use a external powered USB so they look a no no Shame about that cause they look relley nice. Has anybody got any others worth looking at please thanks Ps wired or wirless

Sennheiser all the way, they can give Bose a run for their money.
the PC 350 as a binaural headset will give your gaming experience another dimension.
the PC330 are about £30 cheaper...

Hi, just bought my son a Steel series headset click here and he says they are brilliant.

Comfortable to wear, on games can hear every thing going off round you and they are well built.

Depends if you have a decent sound card whether you get the USB ones or none USB to use your own sound card.

They are not cheap but you get what you pay for.
