So again, I am in need of an honest and professional opinion.

I am looking for a gaming headset to go with my xfi sound card, so no usb ofcourse.

I have read reviews but don't really understand half of them.

Any suggestions please?

Right now I have the Siberia V2.. the sound quality is quite good though I wish it was more responsive on the bass.

Depends on what you want, if you want to benefit from true 5.1/7.1 it leaves few choices, but 2.1 is still the best way forward in some cases.

 

If I were to buy a new headset I would buy:

Razer Kraken Pro: http://bitly.com/H4xSGs

or

AKG GHS 1: http://bitly.com/1d2sjnn

(though it seems they ceased a bit the production)

or

Sennheiser's Range: http://bitly.com/1akYsWT

currently i've got the astro a40 (with mixamp) and it's the best headset i've had/tried up till now. I would also recommend steelseries siberia v2. also, sennheiser are highly reputable, and personally i'd say that razer headsets are highly overprized (heard good things about the tiamat though).

I personally hv the Kraken 7.1 USB, had a steelseries siberia v1. and now I can say siberia is shit! xD Loving it, surround is awesome, deep base, quality is amazing, it looks nice and feels comfortable, watched films as well with it and I was amazed at the quality of the virtual 7.1

Well, if you are searching for some brand name and quality as well then go for JBL. this is the best headset I've ever used.
