    Gaming headphones?

    I just want suggestions on good gaming headsets. Preferably in a decent price range. No 400$ shit.i will mainly be using them for AVA to be a sound whore and sometimes xbox.

    Well, if you're using them for soundwhoring an FPS, definitely get a 7.1 surround headset. I know Razer makes one.

    There is no such thing as a 7.1 surround sound headset. It's just surround sound emulation and any headset can do that. Anyone who claims otherwise is a dumbass. If you compare headset and find when has better "surround" it just mean they have a better soundstage or their drivers (the thing in the cups, not software drivers) are just simply better.

    7.1 has always been the amount of channels (8 channels for 7.1, 7 normal speakers and an LFE speaker) in a hi-fi set-up and even if you were to try and cram 7 speakers and a subwoofer into a headset, it would be too close to your ears for it to make a difference.

    Basically that. Also, I wouldn't recommend buying any "Gamer" or "Gaming" headphones. Most are just gimmickey.

    You can't ever really go wrong with Sennheiser:

    ​Sennheiser, Audio Technica, V-Moda.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    Interesting. Dunno much about headsets, just thought they would be pretty good for FPS games

    Turtle Beaches also shit. They break faster than Razer products.
    People mostly buy Turtle Beaches because the brand has accumulated some sort of "God" name for itself.

    If you want a quality headset that provides surround sound, comfort, and durability, you're going to want to buy either a Tritton headset (I have the AX 720 and they still preform amazing even after a year and a half) or any astro gaming product. I wouldn't recommend anything else.

    Here is a link for the Trittons (I'm assuming you're on PC):
    TRITTON Pro+ True 5.1 Surround Headset for PC and Mac | TRITTON Audio

    Another Note - if you are on PS3 or XBOX and feeling exotic I would recommend the 720+ since the provide 7.1 Surround Sound. These are my next buy.
