I've never really had to use headphones before. Also, do a good majority of players use mics in PC games? Been a while since I played shooters online on my PC (ancient, could barely run Warcraft III, just replaced it). Thanks.
If you've got a good sound card, they do very well at the surround sound faking. I got way better at COD4 and 5 when I got the DX and my Senny's, just from being able to pick up footsteps. And if you play online at all, a mic is not mandatory but really handy. For example, I just did 2 races in iRacing. Normally, I'll tell a lapped car when I'm about to pass. Couldn't tonite, got taken out while running 2nd with 3 laps to go. I'm about to bust out my soldering iron to see if I can make some repairs.
