New Earphones Suggestions
I currently have the SpeedLink Medusa 5.1 Surround Sound Headset. Really good headset and had it for donkeys ages. Sadly, after dropping them one time too many, they have finally broken.  :( Both earpieces still work, but one is sort of hanging off and is really uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time. Not the best situation seeing as they're mostly used for gaming. Would like to get another set the same, but at approx £50 GBP, they're a little steep.

So was wondering if anyone has any recommendations. Would prefer 5.1 but not strictly essential. Please discuss.

Re: New Earphones Suggestions
Most of the 5.1 headphones have good positioning but the actual sound quality is inferior to normal headphones of the same price. I would suggest just getting a standard headphone and gaming with that. Some popular choices around $75 or so are the Sennheiser HD280 and Sony MDR-V6/7506.
