Hey guys,

I've been recently given a $100 gift card for a local electronics store called Future Shop (yeah most stuff on their is overpriced cause it's canadian). And I'm looking to use the gift card on a wireless headset that supports both PC and PS3. I've limited myself to items below $170-$180 on there as I don't want to spend over $70 after the gift card is applied.

So the headset must be found on the www.futureshop.ca website.

My criteria has been the following:
-wireless
-works on both PC/PS3
-surround sound of some sort that preferably works on both PC and PS3, not only one

My searches have come up with two headsets.

1.) The Turtle Beach PX3s - http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/turtle-beach-turtle-beach-px3-ear-force-headset-playstation-3-8085238/10177762.aspx?path=d2a20e9aa1cd051c40772d1be824a147en02

They are from the more well known Turtle Beach brand. It's on sale for the next two days at $100 so I wouldn't have to pay anything with the gift card and with that left over money I could probably buy a Blue Snowball mic (which I've wanted for ages to do commentaries with). However, they are not surround sound, and they look sort of ugly.

2.) The Creative Tactic3D Omega - http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/creative-lab-creative-sound-blaster-tactic3d-omega-headset-gh0130-gh0130/10181904.aspx?path=5f54fca7560e68a5dd42419b72af512cen02

If I get this, it will be without the Recon3D external sound card. This is probably more high quality than the turtle beaches, and it comes with it's own "3D sound" (assuming that's some sort of surround sound, correct me if I'm wrong) but I'm not sure if that 3D sound works with the PS3, probably not though. They are about $70 more expensive, and buying these would mean I wouldn't be purchasing a Blue Snowball. However, they provide more features and and bells and whistles than the PX3 do, and they look better.



Which one should I buy considering the factors? If you guys have any better products, please suggest them! I'll even consider wired headsets that work on both PC/PS3, but if wired they MUST be surround sound.

Thanks.
