Default What headset?

Hi
My old headset broke for my PC.

I need new ones and I was looking at the Razor Barracuda HP1. Are these good. Are there any others you would recommend over them. I play lots of games and listen to a lot of music. I also edit films and watch DVD's on my PC.

Thanks

I got a pair of these: Newegg.com - SENNHEISER HD205 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Circumaural Headphone - Retail

about a year ago and am VERY satisfied...they really are quite good headphones. Extremely clear sound, crystal highs, decent amount of bass...

Yeh, I heard they were good headphones but they seem to be more for just music are they not?

What do you think of the ones I said in my 1st post?

Well the Sennheisers are quite good for games as well.

Sorry, I can't comment on the Razor headphones.....I've just looked at some reviews though and they seem to say the Razors are quite nice......

OK, so it is between them two. Anyone else have any opinions?
