New headset suggestions ?

Hello again people, looking for a new gaming headset, will only use it for gaming and talking on team speak. The max I would pay is £80 and I'm in the UK.

Thanks

I've just went and ordered the Hyper X, my old headset was the Siberia V2 and it is probably the comfiest headset I have owned.

I had several V2's myself and it is true they are very comfy. Well they are overall just good headsets imo. I am also in the market for a new one since my current one (Asus Echelon) is utter c**p (mic is a fooking joke).
There are many choices out there and i didnt know wich one to get but decided to wait for the Siberia V3 before pulling the trigger.
I dont think you can go wrong with the HyperX since it is a rebadged QPad QH-90.
Enjoy it and be sure to give some feed-back on it. I am interested on how it is.

I also bought the HyperX about 2 weeks ago, for £52... bloody bargain.

Design and comfort is very similar to my Beyer DT770s, which is very high praise, and they fit even on my huge noggin'. Audio is as expected from a gaming headset; to be honest it's decent - if you've never had a play with any audiophile or music production hardware then you'll probably be blown away by the HyperX, it doesn't really do anything ''wrong'' (well, maybe a little too bloated bass), it just doesn't have the detail and resolution of higher end gear. To be honest for the money they're the best out there right now.

Well, after reading a fair amount of reviews and watching a couple of vids, i pulled the trigger on the Q-Pad QH-85. Wet with the 85 instead of the 90 because i am more of an open type of HP user.

So i am glad to announce myself in the "Club" fellas !
