I had a Triton headset for a while.

But this beast required to be plugged in the wall to work! The headset was very heavy as well. After an hour, my neck started to hurt. It was 5.1 one too. I sold it last year and got a Sennheiser PC350. It's a stereo headset, but I never regret it. I got a sound card with it, and let me tell you. I can hear everything around me. The surround is amazing.

Haha I still have that one...it's fun to break it out once in a while. But you're right, it feels like a helmet and has a rope for a cable

That sound card is the Xonar Xense. Super card that comes bundled with the 350s. I have that set also,but I still prefer Psyko. I use the Xense card right now as I find it best for gaming. I also have the Trittons and the newer ones are USB powered. Just plug it into any USB and your good to go.
