Yeah. I returned by Logitech USB 350's - because <br />
<br />
1.) Didn't know I couldn't adjust bass and such through sound card software (which should've been a no brainer, but I didn't think about it)<br />
2.) The mic didn't work<br />
3.) Felt bad spending $40 on them because of #1 - even though the sound was "okay" at "stock"<br />
<br />
The headphone part of the headset has to be really good - since I'll be using them as headphones too (on the computer though, because I'd look pretty stupid with a boom in my face listening to my CD player) for music and such.<br />
<br />
The mic part has to be good, but I really won't use it anything other than through AIM/CS:S and the like. Nothing special.<br />
<br />
$45 max. I can spend about $55, but I really don't want to spend that much with a new build coming soon as I might need it. <img src="/images/smilies/whistle.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Whistle" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
Pretty sure everyone is going to say the Sennheiser PC 150's, but figure I should go ahead and ask anyway. <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

get a cheap labtec or creative set of headphones. like 20bucks. I mean dont spend loads on a headset if you have a good sound card. (i didnt check your system btw sorry). but yea i dont think spending that much on a headset is needed i have a 20euro pc line one, that with my soundcard is really loud and clear.

well then, you will get CMSS with that and everything so even a decent set would do imo.

CMSS gives you virtual surround sound in any headset. Plus the x-fi have crystalizer to make sound clearer.

People seem to think that is the best solution.
