i have set of these Razer headphones. they're pretty decent but i won them and wouldn't pay what Razer ask for them. for the price range of that Razer set i would check out some Sennheiser HD 4 or 5 series headphones, you won't regret it. the HD555 set is awesome, i would guess they might cost maybe $20-$30 US more.

I have the "seinheiser 280 Pros" thanks to crysalis's recommendation.
They're awesome for what I need.

in summary: probably any price sennheisers will beat Razer's headphones.

Crysalis, or somebody....I have $125 to spend on a good set of headphones, I want them for gaming, music or nothing else matters to me. I would also like them to have surround sound if that is possible.

I really don't want to spend over that $125

What would you recommend?
