Price is no issue, just looking for a good headset for surround sound gaming with comfortability. Don't give me crap about Razer, they make excellent items. I currently use an Astro A40 and also Razer Blackshark.

Unfortunately I'm gonna have to give you crap about Razer. Gaming headsets in general are mediocre in their sound, if money isn't an issue I'd recommend getting some really nice headphones like sennhieser/audio-technica/beyerdynamics, and for a mic find a cheaper desktop or clip on. Surround sound for headphones is highly overrated and only gives you a faux depiction of where the sound is, a true stereo headphone with a quality soundstage will beat simulated surround any day.

I use Sein's for music, I'm looking for something strictly "gaming"(?) related. I know there is not much of a difference but from what I've tested I prefer the features, software and comfortability in "gaming" headsets. I use a Blue Yeti for a mic. Also, I have Logitech Z506's and a few other headsets, I see no difference from surround sound from speakers, audiophile headphones nor gaming headphones. If it can tell me where the footsteps are just like any other headset/speakers, I consider it surround.
