Also not one of those flashy headsets like what Razor and other manufacturers puts out these days. Still, isn't cheap at $269 on Amazon and NewEgg.
I know I'm reviving a dead thread. But I wanted to express my enjoyment with this headset as well. I have the CE model that I bought for $150 at PAX Prime 2013, and for that price point it was a litteral steal. So far the headset is amazing, it does take a little bit of breaking in to achieve good comfort from the ear pads. But they are real leather, so it should be expected they need a "softening" period to get the best results.
Overall, the headset is stunning. Great sound quality, response, microphone has great pickup, and lastly the passive sound damping is amazing. I can see why a large portion of Professional PC gamers use these at tournaments. Outside noise just does not break in! I flew from Seattle to Tokyo with these on, an I hardly heard a sound. Best headset I've owned by far.
