Sennheiser PC160 Gaming Headset
When it comes to picking out a set of sound-conveying accessories, the
choice is now more divergent and complicated than ever in this post-iPod
world. Do you want a pair that you can take with you and use with your
portable audio player, as well as being plugged in for long frag-a-thons?
Are you an audiophile who won't compromise on sound quality, or is VoIP such
a massive part of your life that the mic is the deciding factor when it
comes to your purchase? There's also the complication of whether to have a
headset that works over USB as a secondary soundcard versus just having a
couple of audio jacks on the end.

"In terms of audio quality, the headphones are pretty darned good, far better than the Plantronics. They're not what you'd call high fidelity, but they are perfect for gaming, with strong, boomy bass that is great for recreating the gun battles on screen. However, the high end is definitely a little lacking and if you intend to listen to any music with these, you won't be able to hear the subtle nuances in music by artists like Wishbone Ash or Lemon Jelly, but you're sure to get a rocking experience out of Green Day and Funeral for a Friend. These are not headphones for the dedicated music listener, but they are pretty decent nonetheless. "
How can the Planctronics survive the other review theb???
I heard the exact opposite of bass and high ends in other reviews.
"If you want the absolute best in mic and audio quality, however, look elsewhere."
If you are a extreme audiophile maybe, but there is hardly any better headset (let alone for that price)
