Just wanted to know which one was better in the sense of comfort over long periods of use, mic quality, and sound quality. I know there is a $20 price difference but the reviews on both are good. I personally like the SB45 a little better because I'm a sucker for white, I mean I'm getting a 600T case in white that I swear is the most eye-gasmic thing I have ever seen :p 

KOSS SB45: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Rosewill RHTS-8206: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Any thoughts? And sorry if this is in the wrong section, couldn't find a better one.

I'd go with the KOSS - it's got better build quality but fewer features.

If you want cheaper, I love Tek'N'Motion's cheapest headset - I can't tell a difference between them and low end Turtle Beaches. (The only cheap part in it is the volume transistor, which can be removed easily.)

Thanks! I was hoping that someone would say they were better. Like I said, I can't resist white. And I wasn't expecting the Rosewill's to be too good either, since they aren't primarily an audio company. Mostly cases, fans, and such.

After using many different headsets of various qualities over many years I can pretty much promise you both headsets you linked offer poor return on investment and are a waste of money.

Well anything is an improvement, right now I'm using a $10 Logitech set that doesent actually fit over your head. It loops around the back of the head and rests on the tops of your ears. After an hour of wearing them, your comfort level is at 0.

I would recomend getting a pair of these which are at the same sort of price but have better sound and a better build. It is all about your taste and how much you are willing to spend but i think you will like these headphones quite a lot if you brought them

I think I will go with those! They do look good feature wise. I passed over them at first because most Fatal1ty products are a bit overrated, but these look solid.
