    Look no further than the Plantronics GameCom 377.

    For $50, it sounds just amazing. It's comfortable as hell, too, and the mic quality is great. I only replaced mine because I got an $80 Razer Carcharias for free. :p

    If $50 is too much, then for $40 you can get the GameCom 367, which is essentially the same headset, but with a closed-ear design (the 377 is open-ear, which yields better sound quality, while closed-ear offers greater isolation).

    These both use dual 3.5mm standard audio jacks.

    Absolutely sexy! That poster who wanted a USB woofer should be considering this! The red matches my usb Red LEDS.

    I definitely want one!

    Just keep in mind that the headsets don't actually have any LED's. :p

    It comes in 3 colors. (well at the campus store I went to)

    Blue, white and red. I chose red because it gave my computer setup a NOD look to it and the green LED fans on my Antec 300 gave a look of tiberium.

    I am a fan of the Command and Conquer series obviously lol. :D

    Id suggest maybe trying NCIX or Newegg, or even Tigerdirect.
