    So over the weekend, I got to use my little brother's Turtle Beach P21 headphones, and I was pretty impressed. My whole life I've turned the volume down whenever I played games in order to not annoy parents/ roommates/ sleeping children. Which means that I often miss out on the complete experience.

    But now I'm looking into getting a decent set, nothing too crazy. Doesn't have to be 5.1. Any recommendations on stuff you use would be helpful (with a mic or without). I'll be using it on a PS3 and trying to keep it on the cheaper side. Just don't want to go into this blind.

    Well, I love music and bought this for my iPod, but I enjoy it for games (L4D with the lights off and these on) too. Theyre these skull candy brand headphones with a battery powered subwoofer in it. Its a good time.

    My favs ever were Sony MDR-v600s but I fucked them up while moving. Now I need a new set.

    <--Sennheiser HD 580 Pro 64-Ohms (I use it for my keyboard, but it works just as well for the PS3 & PC)
    sound definitely makes a difference.

    If you want to play a game and not wake your kids/wife - you should def. invest.

    I have a set of Turtle Beach X2's that have been collecting a fine layer of dust on my desk for the past 6 months or so. I thought they'd broken, then I fixed them about the same time as I stopped playing games on my 360, so I have no use for them anymore. I dunno if they'd work on the PS3 but you could give it a shot.

    My friend had these awesome ones, forgot the name but I think they were a Sony Brand. Connecting them was a bit of a hassle, but they were wireless and once they're hooked up, man was it awesome.

    It's basically surround sound in your ears. I never expected to know my enemies are around the corner or closing in by their footsteps, but they made it easy.
