Noise cancelling for <$50?? Doubt it.

Got these bad boys as a present a few years ago. 5.1 awesomeness but not cheap.

Yeah thats them. I had another 2x 5.1 pairs before them - a medusa pair and a seinhisser (sic) pair - but the ear cups on both were too small and squashed my ears after a while. The psyko are large enough to cup my ears and are comfortable for continual use for hours on end. Im no sound expert but they sound great and the mic works fine. Have had them for approx 3 years and they are the only thing i use on my PC for sound.

They serve the same purpose as sunglasses on the back of the neck, you can safely assume the person wearing them is a f***wit.

Yeah I wasn't impressed by the Beats by Dre, especially for the price tag.

I got Urban Ears, love them, great sound quality, durable, nice fabric cord/inbuilt mic, not too expensive.

I got some Logitech G35 headphones, 7.1 surround sound.

They were like $130 from officeworks! (I think JBHifi wanted $210+ for em)

As i said, im no sound expert but i think the psykos are great. Can only order from USA IIRC which is somewhat of a pain.

My 2nd fave is this one:
http://www.speedlink.com/?p=2&cat=41A3&pid=25159&paus=1
Had adjustable volumes for each speaker (front, centre, rear) so you could adjust on the fly if desired. Ear cup was too small to cover ear but wasnt too uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time. Ordered them from the UK.

Then i also had these 7.1 ones:
http://www.cravingtech.com/sennheiser-pc-333d-gaming-headset-review.html
The 7.1 came from an inbuilt soundcard so i dunno about how good that is. Problem was (as mentioned in the review) the ear cups are small and tight and squashed the f*** out of my ears after only a little while.

My first pair were the speedlink ones after i spent time searching what pair to buy. This is probably 5 years ago. A while later my Dad was talked into buying the sennheiser ones by somebody @ JB hifi or the like but they werent for me. Then i got the psyko ones for a present from my brother after he read about them in a tech mag. Havent needed another pair since.

Id be interested if anybody else has a 5.1/7.1 pair they recommend. But none of that synthetic 5.1/7.1 created from stereo sound crap like the turtle beach @ EB.
