    I just got me some Icemat Siberia cans. Have to say, very impressed with the quality.

    I think they come recommended because they are cheap and have half decent surround sound. From play.com iirc.

    Have they sorted out the problems with that product?

    Maybe it was just bad press but seems like everyone has received a broken headset from them

    Great price/features though

    Sounds nice - thanks! My primary aim is to get good mic quality in CS... the USB option of the Sennheisers attracts me as I can just plug them into the front of my base unit.

    £40 isn't that bad, I have a set and box alone is probably worth £10 it's lush!

    I'd like some BOSE Noise cancelling ones... I think I know where my first pay check is going!

    I have http://www.sennheisercommunications.co.uk/pr-pc150.html (seem to be the non-usb version of what you're looking at).
    Very comfortable to wear, nice sound output and the mic seems to be good quality (hard to say as I don't talk to myself with it).

    I have the Speedlink Medusa's as well. No problems with them at all and the surround sound works really well. Have to agree with Tifosi as well, the box is lovely.

    What are you talking about , the Medusas are the cheapest 5.1 surround headphones around, and they have a built in mic which is not standard on other headsets. You cant really go wrong.
