    must be one hell of a cable running to the headset!
    For joy, apparently, it was all Franny could do to hold the phone, even with both hands.

    Well worth the purchase if u:

    a) can afford them
    b) can find somewhere that sells them.

    Not excellent... but good.

    Pros:
    + Great for surround sound gaming
    + Good for DVD movies with 5.1 sound tracks

    Cons:
    - Not very good for music listening
    - Outright poor for DVD Audio

    I disagree - Listening to music through these headphones gave a very good quality and thorough sound.

    Were u using MP3s or CDs?...

    DVD Audio im not sure as i dont have any DVD Audio discs? If you meant DVD Audio i'm also puzzled as to where u got this idea from? Are u just using crap equipment or not setting up right?

    Hexus Hardware (no relation to this wonderful Hexus, I assume?) ran a review of those Zalman headphones.

    Their conclusions were they gave a good surround sound effect in games but the sound quality was too poor (especially in the rear channels) for sufficiently good DVD/audio playback.

    I bought the Sennheiser 497s from Askdirect (the best price I could find) for my laptop. They're the best headphones I could find for <£50 (after searching through a load of reviews).

    They have good quality sound and are really comfortable, but people nearby can hear a fair amount of sound if you turn it up a bit. It comes with a convertor and the lead is nice and long.

    Having heard so many good things about Sennheiser headphones in the last few years, I am starting to think that I should get a pair.
    Never was a big fan of headphones TBH, although it could be that I was using cheap £10 with microphone integrated by of headphones ^^;

    ARe you going for pure gaming use or music listening as well?

    Whathifi gave the Sennheiser PX100 (£30) a Best Buy award in their recent 2003 awards. They happen to fold as well, usefull if you LAN.....
    They gave the 497's 4/5 in July '02 saying : "Good value and sound quality is decent for 'phones that are as svelte as these".

    With regard to Sennheiser PC gear. I use one of their neck mics for gaming (m@m 40 - £14 Maplin). Maplin also stock nice sterio sets with boom mic (MAB 40 & MAH 40) link here for between £30-50 but their website doesn't seem to have them.
