    umm, what's your budget & where are you getting it from ?

    What I would say is ditch the "Ozone Attack Snow" you're planning to get, these gaming HPs are a complete gimmick & not worth it at all. Not all gaming HPs are bad though. If you can manage a good sound card, then you can get the Shure 440/Audio Technica AD700/Sennheiser HD555/BeyerDynamic DT770 30ohm/AKG K701 ~ these are headphones, i.e not headsets & wont come with a mic if you are gonna play team based games. They would cost around $80-120, with the last two ranging from $150-180. Or you can also get the SteelSeries Siberia V2 USB ~ would cost around 6-7.5k, this is by far the most comfortable HP I've used, comes with a USB sound card which is handy if you are LANing.

    And avoid HPs, which are USB & also gaming HPs which are marketed as 5.1/7.1, a good old Stereo HP with a dedicated sound card will be light years ahead of these fake gaming surround HPs. Try to get a 3.5mm, so even if you buy a sound card, you can switch to it later on. I'm talking about HPs like the Logitech G35, USB headphones in general.

    Mazhar bhaiya can tell more about these HPs as I don't have a 1st hand experience, I'm using a Sennheisser HD215 paired with a X-Fi Titanium, while this is certainly better than those "Gaming" headsets.

    The advantage to this gaming or studio HPs is that they sound a lot cleaner than your average HP & but you'll need a good source. While the regular Realteks are plenty when powering these headphones, you'll miss out a lot of details compared to a dedicated sound card.

    Gaming or studio headphone produce a clearer sound than our "normal A4tech" 1s. One thing about Razer Headphones is they don't have that much bass at stock but boosting bass using my Titanium Fata1ty Champ Series make it produce alot of bass while keeping the sound clean & clear. U will know the diffrence between normal HP n gaming/studio HP only when u pair 1 with a good sound card. I would say if ur buying from BD then the best u can get is a Razer Carcarius but if ur getting something from abroad try to get a Shure SH440.About the 7.1/5.1 thing dipanzan bhaiya said it all.
