My System Specs


The only issue I have with USB headphones is that they use their own DAC instead of the sound card. OP already has a Prelude, so I'd stick to an analog jacked headset.

I had PC151's, really liked them. They go on sale for $50 regularly. I'm currently using a pair of PC330's, which sound even better and I love the built-in volume control, but I find the earpads a bit uncomfortable. They don't breathe at all, and I get sweaty after a couple of hours use.

As for "Best"? There isn't one. Everyone has different ideas about what's important. For FPS use, I think you want something that accentuates the mids so you can hear footsteps better. Others like booming bass from the gunshots.
