My current headset is starting to crap out (it is a really cheap $20-$30 logitech). Any suggestions on a good headset that can withstand some beating?

I've heard some really good things about Sennheiser's gaming headsets. Might want to check them out.

I purchased some Zalman headset about 3 or 4 years ago.....the thing I like about them is they have 2 speakers on each side (front-rear but sounds like a middle speaker also) and you can hear things really good. Also I have not broken them yet is a plus as well.

I can't really remember but if you like these.....check if mic comes with them.

Yeah I almost got the Sennheiser.....but for the money at the time was not worth it to me. I would of bought them if they were as cheap as today though.....but I can't complain about the Zalman's.

Hope this help's !

Thinking about buying these. Thoughts? I saw the links about the other headsets but I'm really just tired of replacing them every couple of years (apparently I'm hard on them).

Looks okay. Anything from Sennheiser is going to be good. Bones just got a pair of HD 555's and a Zalman clip-on mic and he really likes them. I have the same setup but with HD 650's.

The HD lineup from Sennheiser isn't as rugged as their gaming line, so what you're looking at is probably better for you.

Damnit, now I'm waffling. My biggest complaint, ever, with quality has been the cord. Between my wife, kids, and myself...that thing gets rolled over by my chair so much. I had the PC330 in my cart and it did one of those "other people have bought this..." and reminded me of the G930. Now I can't decide. The mic seems to be an area of contention but I'm wondering where people are plugging them in. I noticed if my headphones are plugged into my keyboard (they have jacks), then it gives off a hum too. I'm just worried I'm gonna drop $130 on a nice wired headset to come right back to the same problem.

You shouldn't use the jacks on your keyboard. That's essentially guaranteeing interference.

Very pricey, but worth it so far.....no need to worry about the cord, it is braided.

I would recommend getting a pair of headphones that use your soundcard instead of something built into the cable.

Note that if you pick up a pair of HD 555's (or really any quality pair of non-gaming headphones), you can just buy new cables if your stock ones wear out. A new set of cables costs about $30-$50 depending on the brand.

Saw that Newegg has them on sale for $99 plus it comes with Star Trek Online and some STO bonus pack for free. Even without the games, the headset itself is $60 off.
