I usually use my SH 595 for everything because 1)They are very comfy 2)I only have powered monitors for my main system, not ideal for games.
Today, I'm on my old pc with old 490s and my ears are hurting bad.

I use a pair of Turtle Beach P11's while playing BFBC2 as I X-Fire talk to my Gaming mate, also as the rest if my family doesn't hear the Gunshots/Explosions ect while watching TV...

For GTA4, Far Cry 2 I use my Logitech X530's 5.1 Set..

I find speakers more comfortable(5.1, little experience with stereo gaming). Headphones still feel like they reveal greater detail at lower volumes, but that is unimportant in games I play (TF2 and LoL).

I like headphones, they obviously have many advantages.
I have a turtle beach headset, and love using it, but it sucks it press's against my glasses, and then I get pressure points.
Other than that, really great.

but everyone loves blasting there 5.1 every now and then haha.

Nope, speakers only. I don't like the way headphones feel on my head.

It seems a bit over the top when I paid a good $200 for my sound system. And boy do I love my sound system.

I have a bad case of tinnitus in my ears too. I have problems listening to music even at the lowest volumes without my years ringing off the chart. Doesn't stop me though

And for everyone who has the "glasses pushed against the face problem" Check out Sennheiser Headphones I have the HD 555's and they don't push against your glasses and they are over the ear headphones! I love em
