5.1 Gaming Headphones - Which one should I pick? Tags: Sound Cards Gaming Headphones Components Last response: January 7, 2010 6:55 PM in Components Share olkka December 23, 2009 5:11:01 PM Hello! My soundcard: ASUS Xonar D2 I'm looking for new headphones for myself with high sound quality! The usage is for gaming, music listening (and seldom some movies)... I've done A LOT of research and stuffed with all these reviews there are (Newegg, Amazon etc.). - Roccat Kave (http://www.xsreviews.co.uk/reviews/headsets/roccat-kave...) - Speedlink Medusa NX 5.1 (http://www.xsreviews.co.uk/reviews/headsets/speedlink-m...) - Razer Barracuda HP-1 They all have 5.1 sound, which I want, but Barracuda's build quality is really critisized by many users... So now, it's between Roccat Kave and Speedlink Medusa NX 5.1 - Medusa 13€ cheaper. Which one would you recommend, or is there some other good headphone set? Thanks!

You can get them for $70 on Amazon, & the reviews seem to be better than those of th Barracuda HP 1's Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B001PTH0VW/ref=d...

I need a new set of headphones anyway. gamerk316 a b 4 Gaming January 7, 2010 6:55:53 PM I'd stay away from the HP-1's; I went from them to my older Tritton AX Pro's (using a ASUS Xonar D2), and the HP-1's weren't even competitive in quality...
