What are you after? Proper big headphones that will contain the noise, or just ones that sit on your head for when it gets late at night and you turn your speakers off?

http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-PC-350 ... 850&sr=8-2

Someone suggested them, said they were comfortable, durable and good quality.

Someone else said that these are the industry standard for most headphones, whether he was being accurate or not I don't know:

Those Sennheiser ones look nice, but they are very pricey £100 is a bit out of my price range right now.

I actually really like the look of your ones fatty, whats the bass like on them when your listening to music? and is the mic adjustable/detachable?

Its just for games and music later at night, right now im using a cheap logitech headset. Something like these, but the mic is broken (think I stood on it :S) and they are uncomfortable after a while because they sit on my ears.

I don't use a headset just some headphones and a separate mic, but I used to have a good headset until one of the ears fell off. It lasted about a year and was about £25, it wasn't bad. Mine would of lasted longer if my nephew hadn't started throwing them around when I wasn't watching =)

Adjustable height, the mic is pinned to one earphone and rotates up and down so you can move it out of the way. The sound is great, bass was brilliant if you have proper music and not ripped off mp3's.

I'll try and find the packaging later, can't remember the name of them since it was a long time ago

the sennheiser ones are for sound freaks thats for sure but they are worth every cent.

mines got good music-sound the bass is ok. u can adujust everything by the cable control or software wise. the game-sound is just ace.
in games like BF u hear everything even ppl coming from behind and the best is u "feel" every shot :wink: .
the earplugs are huge and flauschi and the mic is crookable. its just a little bit heavy

If you can afford it the Razer Megalodon is out of control good. 7.1 surround sound, great driver (no issues) and it sounds phenomenal. When I bought it hack in September it was 140 usd it may be cheaper now.

I've gone for the Razer Carcharias. My Razer mouse has served me well so far, so hopefully their headsets are built as well as their mice.
