Do you really need us to choose a headset for you?

Yeah, I don't think you need help with this, just get one with good reviews, not a big deal.

I was just trying to get some opinions. Though someone might have owned one of these and let me know if they were good or not.

all 4 are good, but for 60$ the icemat is really good, plus its really comfortable because it goes behind the ears

Why do you want it to be USB?

Headphones that plug into a dedicated (or even an onboard) sound card are usually better.

Personally I have Sennheiser PC160 headphones.

I want to get a USB compatible headset because I cant get a regular on to work with my X-FI sound card front panel while playing Battlefield 2.

So use the rear port.

the PC160's have a long cable.

Also, the X-Fi's front panel audio connector is exactly the same as the Audigy 2 ZS, in case you needed to know
OverclockersClub Forums > Audigy 2 Zs Front Panel Connector Guide

Or you could do what I did, and solder an audio connector to some pins, then plug the front ports into it
