i use sennheiser pc360 and i think its the best gaming headset.

or HD598/HD558 if you don't need a mic. (which is from what i read similar sounding to the PC360)
I use the modded HD558 and it's very good for me, could be the same for you.

the PC360 and HD558/HD598 are all from Sennheiser. and no only the PC360 has a mic.
Also all these "gaming headphones" are not all that impressive. They are outclassed in more than a few ways than the other offerings available. (maybe except for not having a mic.)

If you are in the US get a normal pair of (good) headphones and order a ModMic.

ALL headsets are overpriced for the sound quality they offer.

One thing I know for sure is that MOST of gaming headphones suck.


Especially the ones you mentioned above excluding ASTRO and Sennheiser.


For me personally, I would recommend getting a high quality headphones(say, Beyerdynamic or Sennheieser) and buy a separate MIC which is cheap.



But since you are using an XBOX too, then I would recommend the Astro because they work on both PC and XBOX and PS3 :) but again they are expensive......


Regarding the Sennheiser HD360 I heared they are low on the BASS, so if you want to listen to music on PC, then they are not a good idea.

AntLion ModMic


Two reasons not to get one: no mute function (yet), no distributor outside of the U.S.

Both problems are supposedly getting fixed soon.

One question though, what is your sound card on your PC ? just the regular onboard sound ?

If you're not using an amp I would recommend the HD598 and a cheap zalman clip on mic. That would be your best bang for the buck setup.

Yeh then get one of the Sennheisers mentioned above, HD558,HD598......


I don't own them, but I only heard good things about them.


One thing to note is that they are not bass heavy headphones and they are OPEN.


Another thing to consider is the Beyerdynamic DT770.


I have the DT770 PRO-250 and I love them; closed, velour pads, sound stage, and amazing bass and sound.


In your case, you may wanna get the DT770 PRO-80 or the 32OHM versions. 


Here is the link for them:


The thing is that I bought the HD558 and I didnt like their bass for music and gaming. I mean they have bass but not as good as the beyer dt770s.... so I returned them and kept the dt770.
