    PC Gamer is running an article which I found extremely interesting, almost shocking in some places. Well worth a read and I think perhaps you will be surprised about some of these expensive headsets and what's actually in them, I certainly was:

    I've tried a few of these and I'm not sure I agree with their numbers :p

    For instance right now I'm using a Turtle Beach Stealth 450... they have it ranked:

    - Design: closed-back
    - Interface: analog
    - Audio: 5/10
    - Microphone clarity: 9/10
    - Comfort: 3.5/10
    - Detachable cable: yes
    - Extras: in-line volume/mic control
    - Price: $130


    Real Stats (as found by me ;)
    Interface: Digital 7.1ch surround, analog only when using mobile cable to listen to music through that interface.
    Audio: 7/10
    Microphone Clarity: 9/10
    Comfort: 7/10
    Extras: In-line volume/mic control and preset button for functions like vocal boost, bass boost, etc.
    Price: $109
