Looks a bit bulky mate, still its not a fashion parade when gaming.
I choose 7.1 in the windows sound settings and headphone in game and when the sound is working properly in BF3 no one knifes me in the back because I hear them coming  Wink

The microphone unplugs too mate, so you can have a feed whilst playing and not get food all over it  Cool

Re: Gaming headsets - which do you recomend ?

I have had then for over a year, first set I have had for gaming so I can't really compare. I used to watch stuff on my computer before I hooked up my PC to the TV and they are sound (excuse the pun) for listenening to movies too. I would recomend them, my mate in Belfast got a pair on my recommendation and he says they are great too.

Re: Gaming headsets - which do you recomend ?

Just had a few games with my mate in Belfast talking over skype, both using the fatality head sets, clear as a bell mate.  I am not keen on the new sound on BF3 though, sounds too tinny after the patch.
P.S. sorry I didn't join your canals TDM Ste but I can't handle TDM, it reminds me too much of COD and MOH. I prefer conquest bazaar and siene because it gives you a bit of time to get your head in the game after respawning.
