One other consideration aside from those mentioned - if you have a gaming venue, like LAN cafes,* LAN parties where everyone brings their own laptops, or gaming events where you gather all players in the same place on LAN rather than have someone be handicapped by lag (or claim such when they get shot), you wouldn't want to hear what's coming out of the headphones of those beside you, plus all the other noise at the event. In other words, they consider usage in public places.
*you might not have those in countries with really fast internet and nearly any schmuck can get a credit card with low interest rates to buy a gaming rig; we have lots of 0% 12mo installment deals on credit cards here, but good luck buying your own custom rig with it as the shops that sell PC parts tend to not have this as a payment option
