Based on the price I would personally recommend Sennheiser's 350 or 360 series if you have a decent sound card or mixamp to get the most out of them. They are considerably higher impedance than most gaming headsets which means you won't be getting the full benefit and quality they're capable of with lower end onboard sound. They also take quite a while to 'burn in'. Turtle Beach or Steelseries make some nice ones that are lower impedance.

That said, I have a nice sound card and I love them. I think they're a bit fugly but they're very light and comfy (very important for gaming), sturdy, and they sound fantastic.

Just my 2 cents.

Koss ftw. Razer is mostly about "gamer" marketing.

I was just going to post nearly the same thing. I have the same same headset. For me comfort was important and so I went with over the ear type.

I use Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930. Great sound and holds charge well. It is not exactly cheap but it is a good headset.

OP, what exactly is affordable? If you looking for a gaming head set, expect to spend $50+ Basically price dictates quality. More the more expensive, the better it will be. There are few exceptions but there are very few.

Logitech G35's. Very happy with them. In other games they have worked great as well.

Heard some really good things about Corsair's Headsets. The new Vengeance 1500's are supposed to be very decent and a good price considering.

My next set I might try out the Corsair's but also happy with the Logitech's.

$20 basic Logitech headset at Best Buy.

Hasn't failed me yet. (And is better than my $70 Sennheiser that crapped out on me)

i use the wireless version of the G35 logitech and have a large head and to me, the headphone band tension is too too tight and at times would leave me feeling i had a tension headache. I swapped over to a pair of sennheisers and they are much more comfortable.
