This is the absolute best headset for gaming I have ever owned. Hands down, the best. Not only can you use it for gaming, but it has a movie setting on it. I haven't used it much, but it sounds just as good as the gaming setting. Admittedly, it is a bit pricey, but if you're looking into investing in a good gaming headset, look no further. On top of a great headset, they have pretty reliable customer service. This headset is really easy to set up. Pretty much plug and play. Great for all types of games too. There's some headsets that sound great for racing games, but not the greatest on shooters. This is an all around great headset. You can never go wrong with these.
