I've gamed on headphones ever since my mako speakers died (seems to have been an intentional failure point, as I never ran them hard) but I've been using sony MDR-XD300s for a couple years now

Anyone use these?
Buy the Plantronics Gamecom 780 Headset at TigerDirect.ca
I'm getting sick of a separate mic from my headphones.

No but I've used previous versions and they were alright. Tbh the pair I had was $20 and was the best cheapset I've ever had - quite comfy and sounded decent.

i have a good pair of headphones/headset on my head about 10-16 hours a day, from work to home, for probably 18+ years now, and mostly open ear cups, except for my noise canceling headset when i work on my truck.

got me some PC360's, HD 558's, and 2 pro grade communications headsets at work(don't know who makes them only they cost more then i make in a week)

and for those wondering, my ears still are perfect even after all those years, now my eye's after growing up in front of pc screens are an other story hehehe

I do occasionally, and will probably get laughed at for it - but I got a decent turtle beach headset I use. Sounds great to me, and the best part was due to a pricing error I got the headset for 8 bucks.

Although when I first started gaming, I was limited to mono sound so anything in stereo is gravy after that lol.

You definitely need headphones for gaming if you want to soundwhore. BF4/BF3 don't have very good directional audio though.

I use a pair of AKG K550 headphones. Closed back so really good noise isolation (me from other things and other things from me), plus the positioning is fantastic. I can tell exactly where sounds are coming from when they're behind me or off to the side.
