I am looking to buy headphones mainly for gaming, but also for music. Will I get better bang/buck with a gaming headset, or with headphones and a modmic?
Does a gaming headset have any special surround sound not found in traditional headphones, or are they the same? I want to be able to hear the direction sounds are coming from.
It would be helpful if you made suggestions or directed me to a comparison thread for hardware under $300.
