Right now i have quite bad and old headphones which are falling apart. And i hear people talking about how great a good set of headphones / headset is. Even people on the consoles now play with a 5.1 headset with games like Call of Duty where they talk about exactly hearing where the enemy is - even when behind the wall. So i also want something like that. All the movies also are now it 5.1 so i would like to experience that. Here's what i'm looking in my headset.
* Big cups. I don't want any of those small like Fatal1ty ones.
* Comfortable. I want them to be good even for long gaming sessions. Which means they definetly need to be softened on the top and so on.
* Good sound. This is for grated. I don't need them like perfect and i wouldn't listen to music with them, but you get the point.
* Good microphone. This is something i would really want, because i would definetly use them to talk to people and so on. It needs to be clear.
* Durable. This headset would have to serve for a long time.
* Surround. People say that this is just a gimmick but still - i have heard so many people talking how you need surround sound headphones - forexample in CoD again. Also - i can't tell which direction something is coming from at all right now.
I think that about does it for now. I am running Windows 7 if that changes anything. My motherboard is Asus P5Q PRO so i'm not sure if i need a new soundcard or something?
I would also like to say that in my country the selection is limited. But now that Amazon.co.uk and other sites like that ship here too then i can hopefully order from there. A lot of people have suggested just a pair of headphones with a mic clip (like the Zalman one), but unfortunetly i haven't found a place where the Zalman clip is sold.
