    The Creative Sound Blaster headsets are cheaper, have bigger drivers (50mm) and don't look like a teens plastic wet dream like these.

    Why don't PC headphones with Optical Cables?? If your going to make a high end Gaming Headphones... why not use the best we have?I am pretty sure that most Mobos or sound cards have the output? ( I know all of mine do, except my laptop, so why not an adapter as well maybe??)
