Astro A40

They are far the best I know, I am planning to get some soon! They are cheap, but perform like $300+
Happy Gaming

Yeah I was looking at some reviews online what about the turtle beach P5?

The px5 you mean? If so here you go:

Frequency Response: 20 - 20,000Hz
Decibels: 120dB
Impedance: N/A

To me I wouldn't recommend it since it doesn't have "all" the specs, but your the consumer biggrin.gif
Is there anything else?

I have the Tritton PC510.


Cheap but thoses are epic for real surround.


Won't work on a PS3 because it has 5 connectors but anyway... Check out Tritton AX 720 and AX Pro.


I don't know how they are compared to 400$ headset/headphones but they sound pretty great imo.
My build?..

It's not about how much you can spend on a headset because you can get a $1,000 headset and the specs can be horrible. It just depends on the specs then you look at the price (that is money isn't a issue if money were a issue then you were to give your self a price range then compare the specs to see which headset is the best)
