  1. I have around USD 100 to spend on a gaming headset. The characteristics I am looking for in the headset are as follows:

    --closed ear
    --detachable microphone
    --at least 5.1 surround sound (can be virtual)
    --USB powered, no need to plug into a wall, unless a [possible] amplifier requires it (better if not needed however)
    --comfortable

    Any ideas? It would be helpful if you have had any personal experience with the suggestion or know someone who has! Thanks.

    Did you try using Google for this?

    Yes and I am currently looking at two options:

    Logitech G35 and Turtle Beach HPA 2.

    Anyone have opinions on these?

    The Turtle Beach headset is lighter and it would be much more comfortable to wear during long gaming sessions. The reviews look better than the heavier Logitech model

    Hey Bevis,

    I think I will go with the HPA2. Has the nice ability to control each channel without software...
