Default Can't choose which Headset is best? HELP!

Hi guys,

I bought myself a soundcard and it's the "Asus xonar dx"

now I want a good headset for games...
but I don't know which one is good for me
the thing what I think it's realy important is to hear your enemy very well so you can locate him asap and kill him xD

the headsets below are in my country a bit of the same price range.
please help me choose!

Corsair vengeance 1300
Steelseries siberia v2 full size
Razer Carcharias Professional
Roccat kulo

Bye,

I had one and didn't think it sounded anything special. However it was by far the most comfortable headset I've worn, the mic was decent and seemed durable.

In the $100 range,go for the Roccat Kaves,or the Tritton HDa 5.1 analog headphones. If you have a little more money,get the Tritton Ax Pro's. For the ULTIMATE set available right now,go for the Psyko Carbon's. Digital is OK,but analog is the only way to go for true surround. My comments of course,are related to GAMING headphones. I know of what I speak. I have,or have had, every set of good 5.1 analog headphones available today.
