To be honest I find them all a bit gimmicky. Youre better off getting yourself a decent soundcard and a good quality set of Sennheisers like my PC360s but that's just my two cents.

Out of strictly this poll I'd get the Kraken Pro. Looks good, sounds decent and not gimmick-ridden.

PC360 is undoubtedly king of gaming headsets but also way more expensive than the ones mentioned here.

None of your list.

You better spend some time reading about the Superlux HD681 EVO. I believe they have a mic, or you can attach one (not sure)
