Gaming headset for a big head :P

I'm trying to find a good gaming headset. My main issue that I have had with every headset I have ever owned is them being uncomfortable. I have a large head (Size 8) and biggish ears the prevent them from really fitting inside most of the ear pieces. So I'm trying to find something that doesn't put much pressure on the side of my head or on the edges of my ears if I can help it. Aside from that I'm looking for good sound (5.1 preferably, I have a Creative X-Fi 5.1 card) and a good mic obviously but as of now comfort comes first. Probably won't spend more then $150 dollars but really I'll look at anything and if its worth it I'll pay more. Thanks for the help.

  6. Best answer
    The Sennheiser PC 350's have a 150 Ohm Impedance so if the sound ever seems weak or distant, it's because the audio source isn't pushing the drivers hard enough and you'll need a headphone amplifier like the one listed below.
