I got this as part of a bundle deal from ebuyer.com - it came free with a creative 7.1 fatality soundcard, but i understand they are worth in the region of £20-£25.
The headphones look stylish and sit very comfortably on your ears, completley covering them and allowing you to experience the full sound. The microphone is extremely manaeuvrable and will stay in any postition you set it without moving again. The is an in-line remote which allows you to turn the microphone on and off and adjust the volume of the headphones.
When using the headphones in games, they are absolutley immense. Sounds are crystal clear, you can hear thing as if they are behind you and they don't distort too much when turned up high. They allow you to completley immerse yourself in whatever game you're playing. The bass is pretty impressive too, and explosions sound unbelieveable.
They fall down slightly when it comes to music. They don't sound as good as they do in game, and MP3's seem slightly muffled.
The microphone is very, very clear - in games I can only hear myself and no background noise, and me voice is easily understandable and clear.
Overall though, for gamers these are perfect headphones, allowing you to enjoy your games in more depth.
