    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Now that's out of the way Does anyone have any recommendations on PC headsets? I was thinking about the Creative HS Fatal1ty Gaming Headset or the Plantronics GameCom 377 Open Ear Gaming Headset but I first want to know if there is any other good ones out there.

    EDIT: oh forgot the price. Not to expensive. Below £40 I say.

    There's a PC to Xbox360 headset converter?! Now there's another thing I have to buy.

    Anyway, I bought a Plantronics Audio .370 and they are very comfortable. The only thing I don't like about them is that they don't sit well on your head if you move a lot; however, that's what makes them so comfortable.

    The sound quality is okay, but I'm not an audiophile so I can't talk about highs/mids/lows with you. All I know is that it feels nice and it works with Team Fortress 2 [​IMG]

    I got it on super sale from Future Shop for $20

    It seems like tempers don't use headsets or has no knowledge in them so I thank you BiscuitBee for replying

    np

    If you wanted a pair of headsets just for your PC, my friend uses a USB headset that does 5.1 ..they're over $150 for the mid-quality ones though [​IMG] I was, originally, looking for one of those, but I didn't think it was worth it for me.

    ... and I doubt it would work in an Xbox 360, being basically a USB soundcard and what-not.

    Thing is, I do use a really great headset. But you said that you wanted headsets below £40, and this headset doesn't fall into that category.

    However, if you really want a headset with of good quality that is really nice to wear for long periods and have the cash for it - Then I'd suggest you to look up the Steelseries Siberia headset.
