Hello all<br />
<br />
Ive had 2 pairs of sennheiser 150 and 160 there great.. But now my 160 are broke... <br />
<br />
So what do you guys think is the beast Headset? Im not a big fan of the Madosa and it cant be USB.... Have any of you guys tried the new Razor head set yet????<br />
<br />
Any suggestions would be great<br />
<br />
Thanks<br />

I have the Zalman ZM-R6F and perform very well, other who have had them and other 5.1 claim there good but not as good as some others. There a bit dated and most likely there are better sounding units out there for sure, but I can add they can take a beating with out breaking, trip on the cord and sent then flying more than once and not a problem yet <img src="/images/smilies/redface.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Embarrassment" class="inlineimg" /><br />
As good as they are I wonder how the "+" version sound.

And just so the OP knows it can be used with USB and regular audio connections.<br />

The <a href="http://www.razerzone.com/Products/Gaming-Audio/Razer-Barracuda-HP1-Gaming-Headphones/" target="_blank">Razer HP-1's</a> are just about identical to <a href="http://turtlebeach.com/site/products/earforce/hpa/producthome.asp" target="_blank">Turtle Beach's Ear Force HPA Headset</a>.<br />
<br />
I've had a pair of Ear Force HPA's for a few months now, and absolutely love them. I believe the Razer HP-1 has some kind of proprietary connection made for their upcoming <a href="http://www.razerzone.com/Products/Gaming-Audio/Razer-Barracuda-AC1-Gaming-Sound-Card/" target="_blank">Barracuda AC-1</a>. It looks like Razer may have adjusted a few things about the design, but from what I see, it's a good thing. The original Ear Force HPA's sound great, but the padding is too thin, and would hurt the ears after a while. <br />
<br />
Other than that, and a modified mic design that still attaches in the same place as the HPA, they look the same in design. I'd <i>easily</i> recommend them to anyone, and might get a set myself, as my wife will probably 'inherit' my Ear Force HPA's before too long.

I will have to recommend though that you get a regular pair of headphones i.e. Senn HD555 and a clip on mic like a Zalman. Dedicated headphones will reproduce sound much better then these headsets. I am not saying get the HD555 they are just the example (I use them).<br />
<br />
Also in the last issue of Maximum PC they did a head to head on regular headphones and a headset... The headphones one with the Zalman clip on.<br />

</div>They also stated that they suggested the headphones & lapel mike if you WEREN'T going to be doing much gaming. They pretty much dissed on the lapel mic for anything but a casual mic user.

</div>And there suggest is to buy both then or sacrafice the outgoing audio for better incoming.<br />
<br />
I am reading it again right now.<br />
<br />
"If it's to be one or the other, however, we'd make the compromise on teh outgoing-audio side of teh equadion: Buy a set of quality headphones and an inexpensive lapel mic."<br />
