I already own Koss KCS75 and Sennheiser HD-518. I think that these are great for listening to music but I am on the fence on whether or not they are good for FPS gaming. I would like to get a headset/mixamp to replace my dated Logitech G930. These would be solely for gaming. Most important thing would be auditory location awareness. Please advise.

I own the HD 518s, they are amazing for gaming, but the only downfall is that it does not have a microphone. I currently own the G230 headset (new gaming line) and so far I enjoy it. Unlike other headsets, is actually sounds pretty darn good with music, and the microphone has good quality from people I've talked to. If you want to pay a bit more, they make the same style of headset but in 7.1 surround sound, but for me, stereo is good enough.

I have to disagree on the G230. I like playing games like battlefield where auditory awareness is just as necessary as skill. Stereo is good but 7.1 is better. And the 7.1 in the Logitech G930 leaves a lot to be desired. I was looking at the Skullcandy SLYR set with a Xonar DX or maybe even the PC360 headset. Don't want to invest in something without getting some raw data and comparing them though.

I don't use my G230's for FPS gaming, my computer isn't good enough to handle those kind of games. I mostly play Minecraft and the occasional Audiosurf. When I play my PS3, I use an adapter and use the HD 518s. No question that 7.1 surround is better, but for my needs I just don't need to pay the extra money for it.
