Hello everyone!

I am buying a new headset for gaming, but i cant decide which one shall I pick.

I have a 7.1 intergrated sound card into my P7P55D-E PRO motherboard, so you now I can use 7.1 sound.

The price should be around 70-80 euros, maybe 90.

The headsets I have already took a look, but couldnt decide:

Roccat Kave

Steelseries V2 USB

Are they Kave ones realy good because I have been looking at them quite a lot but I am just not sure?

Should I go with a USB plus 3.5mm input or USB only?

Whats the difference.

Please show me some more headsets, because I dont know a lot about this market

Is what I use. And they will blow you away, literally. True 5.1 with a sub in each one, and fully adjustable with the USB amp they come with.

I've used a lot of headsets and headphones (even have a set of wireless Senns gathering dust) but those things are just incredible.

I gave up on 5.1 headsets

I have my sound setup for 5.1 > stereo in the x-fi drivers and find I can hear stuff better in counterstrike source than I could with a 5.1 headset.

It actually sounds a lot better than with 5.1

My current headset is a plantronics gamecom which I think was £15 or something.

Also the mic is better on these than my old medusa's

Don't the USB headsets have like a USB soundcard built in?

Anyone one else`s opinion?

Or another suggestion?

PS do the Turtle ones go over whole ear and are comfy?
