My roommate has the wireless Logitech G930s, and they seem pretty nice, but when I think audio I don't think Logitech. I have the MSI P67A-G43 motherboard with onboard 7.1 surround sound. However, the only 7.1 headsets I've seen come with a USB audio card, are these the only way to get 7.1 in a headset? I've read about virtual surround sound from non 7.1 headsets, what does that mean and is there a notable difference?
I just stumbled across the new Razer Tiamat 7.1 headset which has 5 x 3.5mm jacks and you need a compatible sound card to use them. Would they work with my on board? They're a bit pricey, and not actually for sale yet, but if that's my only option so be it.
TL:DR- Budget $<150. Must have: Covers my entire ear, good noise cancellation. Prefer to have: 7.1 surround sound, microphone.
Looking at, Sennheiser HD280PRO($80), RS160($120), PC333D($115), Razer Tiamat 7.1($180)
