    I'm using Sennheiser HD439's and they're a very solid set of headphones, especially after doing the "bass mod". Logitech G430 is also a great headset. Cloth pads are ideal for many reasons.

    I have the razer cacharias and i like it but my advice is don't headsets from Razer. It's just marketing, nothing more...

    Yeah pretty much everything Razer is all marketing, be it mouse, keyboard, audio, etc.
    Granted they do make some good products (esp mice) but the price is very inflated for the name so you want to get them on a really good sale, or see if their are alternatives from other brands that are similar at a lower cost.

    While I enjoy the G930 I think the SteelSeries Wireless H headset is the best all around gaming headset experience. That and I also like that I don't have to have another piece of software installed on my laptop considering it already has a SteelSeries keyboard. I run sound for several churches and bands and have had excellent quality headsets over my ears and the SteelSeries set is the same great quality to me on my laptop that my Seinheiser and Bose headsets have been in running sound for me. My cousin who works for a radio station in Sandusky Ohio uses the same headset that I do for gaming. We both love it

    The best headphones and microphones are made by companies who make them for professional and for audiophile use. Gaming companies don't make neither well. Audio-Technica, Sennheiser, Beyer Dynamic, AKG are among companies who make great microphones and headphones, which are also great for gaming use.

    For video game soundwhoring there's nothing better than an open-back audiophile headphone paired with a good virtual surround solution, e.g. Razer Surround, Dolby Headphone, CMSS-3D, SBX Pro Studio. It's like god mode, probably the best competitive advantage short of cheating.
