Headset wise, I'd recommend something else. Surround headsets all have two things in common: Weak drivers, and poor audio isolation. Weak drivers cause the audio to be poor, and the poor isolation means teh audio "jumps" as it moves from driver to driver within the earcup. Hence why many prefer virtualized surround on a stereo headset, which most soundcards have as a built-in feature now.

Hard to give a recommendation without a price. Soundcard wise, this is ASUS's product line:

Headset wise is harder. Really depends on the type of audio you listen to...
