I've used a few headsets in recent years. I tried the Razer Barracuda (actual 5.1 surround headset), and it was a piece of crap. Went through two sets, and on both the left ear cup stopped working. They also sounded pretty terrible, but I was convinced that the surround was better for FPS. I went through a few different sets afterwards (Plantronics 777, Creative Tactic3D Alpha, Corsair Vengeance 1300, Plantronics 780, Logitech G35, Logitech g330) and none of them compare with my Sennheiser HD555. That combined with the CMSS-3D from my Titanium HD card gives me surround sound that's just as good if not better than my Barracuda set ever was. The Logitech set sounded good, but was too heavy. Same with most of the others. I recently picked up a pair of Carcharias for work (I needed a headset for talking on Skype all day) and I have to say they are the most comfortable phones I've ever put on my head. They are light wight, seems sturdy, and sound great (a bit bass heavy, but that can be EQ'd). The mic is amazing too- very clear. I've only been using them for a couple weeks so I can't comment on durability, but they seem to be well built to me. Though I like the sound of my Sennheisers better for music, I now use the Carcharias for gaming as I think the sound great and I don't even feel like I have them on after 30 minutes or so. Razer quality has been hit or miss for me- the Lycosa keyboard was a piece of crap, but my Blackwidow is great. My Copperhead and Deathadder mice were awesome, as is my new Imperator 4G, but the Lachesis was nothing but trouble. I've have good and bad stuff from Razer like I have any other brand, so anyone you ask will give you a different opinion.

I'd stay away from this kind of headsets. Their build quality is poor.
