Not that I expect an $80 headset to be wireless but...

...I'll stick with the TBeach PX5's.

Plantronics have wireless ones too that are pretty good.

I'll stick with my Floorstanding speakers.

My PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset arrived yesterday. 7.1 surround. Wireless. I pre-ordered moths ago when Amazon ran it on special for $69. Best headset I have ever used. I want to use it even when my wife isn't trying to sleep. Amazing immersion. So much for my Turtle Beach.

EDIT: @BakedGoods, I don't know about the 360, I haven't tried it yet. But it officially supports the PC as well as the PS3.

True, that set looks sweet.

However, for a multi-gamer like myself, I need a headset that works on the PS3, PC, 360 and hell, even TV! The tbeach's roll nicely with all that.

I got my PS3 wireless stereo headset on tuesday and I have to say for being virtual 7.1 I don't think you you could tell the difference between others using multiple speakers in the headset. These things sound amazing but I had to pay the full $99.95 for mine as I missed the pre-order date. But for a wireless set that is this kind of money I am sure they can't be beat. They sound as good as my in home 7.1 surround, minus a bit of bass because I have a 15 inch sub in my home surround set.

No headset will ever sound half as good as a decent surround setup. And no i don't mean 7.1 in a box setups.

True, headsets multi-speaker setups are mostly simulated. And the ones that aren't, the speakers are so close together you don't really know what is what, and where its coming from. Not to mention the software that comes with them is garbage. Plus, most of them don't even work with sound boards. Simulated sound ftl...

A good surround sound setup will be by far, more superior for a long time to come. Especially for an audiophile.

The best sounding headsets are the ones that can hit the highs as well as the lows. And do so with far less than "7.1"

Best buy her I come. beach a what, tron the uhh? I think I'll go for a simple plug n play style (look ma' no wires)

For the volume I can take my "not in a box" 7.1 surround set to without disturbing my wife, kids, neighbors (because I live in a condo) it does sound better than half as good.
