Arrow Can't decide on which headset - Help

I currently have a Steelseries Siberia v2 headset but they are currently on the way out. (The left ear piece distorts at medium+ volume).

I'm looking for another headset and the choice I've narrowed it down to is the following:

Asus Orion ROG Stereo - £59.99

Asus Echelon Camo Edition - £59.99

Corsair Vengeance 1400 - £64.99

Sennheiser PC 320 - £65.99

What would you guys recommend from the above list or is there another set that I've missed that I should put into my shortlist?

£65 is pretty much the top I can spend.

I have the ASUS Rog Orion, the camo edition would be a personal choice. I can honestly say that they sound amazing and the mic is good quality, pretty hard to find a good sound/mic combo. I can't comment for the others as I've not used any of them. Also, unless you have complete privacy don't get the Orion headset as they are open ear meaning you hear things sometimes which can mesa with gameplay and obviously they leak noise as they are open back and when they are loud they will annoy people who are in the same room. On a plus note, you can wear them for 12-16 hours a time and not get sweaty ears like closed back. If you want the closed back equivalent then look at the ASUS Rog Vulcan.

a kinda random suggestion take a look at the AKG GHS 1. AKG make some really nice headphones and these are meant to be decent from what I have read, I have not tried them myself through. You can get them in white, black and camo.

Obviously, when looking into PC peripherals, keep Razer in mind. Their products are a bit pricey, but excellent quality. They even make 7.1 surround sound headsets, which will be great for FPS games. Just something to consider!

I had Sennheiser PC 350's for ages and they were great so I would suspect the 320's you're looking at would also be good

I find Superlux HMC660s awesome for the price. They do need a headphone amp, though...

Quick Update:

I never got any of the headsets that I first posted in my original post.

I finally settled on the QPAD QH-90 Headset.

OC3D Review.
