Sennheiser PC-series

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I am going to buy a Creative X-Fi Gamer-soundcard and want to buy a good headset along with that.

What are the differences between the Sennheiser Pc 150 and Pc 160?
The difference in price is twenty euro's, so if the differences aren't noticable, i'd go with the pc150.

Thanks in Advance,
AMD-rules.

So what your saying is that the PC 150 are equal to the PC 160?
Does the PC 150 have 360 degree surround-sound?

he said the 151's sound the same as the 160's 'to him/her'

any headphone will have '360 degree surround-sound' with an X-fi

Ok. But If you had to choose between the Sennheiser Pc 160 and the Icemat Siberia, which one should you choose?
