Decent headset - not noise cancelling for gaming?

  1. I'm browsing around on newegg for a new gaming headset but all the quality headsets I see in the 30-70$ range are noise-cancelling. My brother and I LAN often so I would prefer non-noise cancelling headphones (plus I find anything things that completely cover your ears to often be uncomfortable if gaming for over an hour).

    This is the best I've managed to find so far : Gaming Headset G330

    According to various reviews they have great comfort, mediocre durability and sub-par sound and voice quality, and are only somewhat noise cancelling.

    I think the noise cancelling and great comfort outweigh the need here for quality sound and voice quality. If I'm going to watch a movie or listen to music I will use the speakers.

    Edit: Must have a mic.
    Edit2: Apparently newegg does not ship to Canada?

    I have a pair of these. They are circumaural but the cushions are fairly soft, and they don't hurt my head or ears after extended gaming. They do get a little warm. They sound pretty good, but I turn down the bass a bit on my sound card so explosions don't drowned out important details I might need to find other people on a map.

    newegg.CA should deliver to Canada :p maybe you have a different issue you're not fully aware of yet.

    I was definately on .COM! Thanks for the reply. I think those were a close second but are now my primary choice.
