    I'm looking to replace my really (really) cheap headset, mainly due to the fact that after 30 mins my ears are killing me.

    So, recommendations for comfortable, yet not too pricey (sub £80 if possible) headsets that I should look for :)

    Already had a few people mention Logitech or Seinnheiser, but couldn't really decide on which model to go for...

    Edit: (quick note: no USB connector Headsets please!)

    I like trying on headsets before I buy them. Last one I had was a Medusa 5.1, loved the beans out of them, but all of a sudden they stopped playing out of certain channels/sides. Prolly broke because of the break in the middle... (think I rolled over them one night)

    I'm not made of money like you Rockefellers, so I buy el cheapo, but I really like the eD brand headset I have. I've had it for years, and it's terrific, and very comfortable. It does make my ears sweaty in the summer though when playing long mmorpg sessions.

    Oh yeah, should probably specify on the first post too: No USB connectors please :)

    No worries - I thought they'd actually stopped making them with USB >.>

    Saying that however, Core - if the most comfortable ones are USB, then I will go with USB. Just a slight preference that I would prefer Audio and Mic jacks.

    Been looking at this one - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/128208 - It's got good reviews on ebuyer, but you guys are better than the people on Ebuyer :p

    They look ugly, but then again who buys headsets for looking nice?

    Yeah. I read several reviews that all said that whilst looking ugly, the headset was comfortable and had excellent sound quality, which is what I was more or less looking for.

    And for £20, why say no?

    I certainly did!

    Had them on for 5 hours now (Skyping), and my ears are just so warm and comfy.

    £20 well spent ^_^
