DSP-500 Rated best gaming headset.

This headset is USB eliminating any Static, that you normally get from a audio jack.

i own a pair myself and i would'nt use anything different.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ the cord is actually about 2M long.

I would recommend the Zalman Theater 6 Surround Sound headphones. But, if you are looking for a gaming set, look else where. This set doesn't come with a mic and needs to be ordered separately. The mic by the way isn't that great and needs to be attached to the wire. Not the greatest place to put it...

Gaming = No
Non - Gaming = Great sound / True Suuround / Yes

woops, forgot to mention that those headphones in the picture are Altec Lansing 502s, which I hear are pretty good and not too expensive.

I actually have those headphones you posted (Altec). S far I love them. The mic seems solid and comes through pretty clear. The only thing is the first week or so they were really uncomfortable and actually made my ears really soar but after I broke them in it was np anymore. The ambient sound eliminator **** they have is insane. I can hardly hear myself talk so I end up talking really loud in the mic. The sound is awsome, kicks the crap outta my old stock dell speakers.

Anyway. I'd reccomend them.

Also alot of people will suggest sienheiser but I say stay away. They are pretty nice headsets but I have two personal friends who bought them at the same time and both broke in about 4-5 months. I also read the exact same thing multiple times on the internet. So it must be a common occurence.
