Completely wrong statement about the good headphones price. I currently own a $100 headset from Sony and it's crap. The sound quality is good and shit, but it loses contact with my PC at completely random moments.
Then I guess you didn't do your research correctly? Not sure. I own a $100 headset (Steelseries Siberia Frost Blue V2) and they're perfect, no issues and its been a few months.
