  1. Sorry if this is the wrong forum, but I didn't see anywhere more appropriate.

    Priorities:
    Great positional audio
    USB (dont want to need to blow more money on a sound card, and the onboard sound on the MSI P55-GD65 is apperently a bit poor)
    Comfortable
    I am not concerned with poor audio for music, although it would be nice if it worked well for movies.

    I was looking at the Creative Sound Blaster Arena and the Saitek Cyborg 5.1. I was concerned about Creatives notorious driver unreliability, and one review said that quality was atrocious on about 60% of games on Windows 7. Meanwhile the Cyborg 5.1 has got mainly good reviews, but some complain of a buzzing sound and a didgy microphone.

    Have I overlooked any good options? Do you have any experience with either of these headsets, or near competitors?

    Thank you very much for any help.

    ^I'm using one of those... and it's amazing. It also features virtual surround sound :)
