Add in the Astro Mixamp and you are good to go. Now that combo can get a little pricey depending on the cans, but you get to use it with both your console and PC. Plus you get a descent pair of cans to listen to music.

Yes a set of good cans and a mic are better for pc gaming. Normally these are cheaper

Edit: Wow 200$ price tag run away fast

I the only one who gets annoyed when people just say "cans" "cans" "cans".
They're called headphones.

yes, if your just gaming on your PC then a set of nice headphones paired with a clip on/desk microphone will do better.

And personally I'd stay away from anything wireless

Im looking forward to more companies making decent surround sound headsets that aren't emulated surround sound because the quality tends to drop on those.

Only one I have managed to find that fits perfectly is the Roccat Kave and they aren't distributed much in North America, But this new one from Razer is sure nice for a wireless one. I can't wait to try it out.
The replacer.

I'm using their Megalodon atm; it's perfect for gaming purpose, but I really hate having to handle the cables... Wireless would be so cool (besides from the battery that needs to be charged)!
It's a matter of habit imho.
