I am providing a second vote for gamecom 777.. I have been using them fro a year now and love them.. good sound whether using the usb adapter or a sound card

edit: I game for hours and they don't hurt my head or ears either

I have the Razer Carcharias.
Don't get the Razer Carcharias.

It's really not that great. Broke 2 times in the same place already, had to get it RMA'd the first time, then had to rewire it myself the second time. Sound quality also isn't too spectacular. Only good thing about it is that it is VERRRY comfortable.

^This, a good set of cans + mic (zalman clip on) > almost any headset.
depending on budget but for gaming the AD700 are among the best.

Well Amazon has the AD700 for 90 right now, seems like a great price.

How's that combo look? I'd be willing to give those a shot as I've always just used generic gaming headsets. Would probably sound amazing when combined with the sound card on my mobo.

This combo works really well but will work the best with a "real" sound card, you just have a realtek audio with a creative software, a Asus Xonar or Creative Titanium will be a lot better.
