Hi all,
I have been looking for some headphones for a while with the following characteristics (in order of preference):

Wireless/bluetooth.
Microphone
Surround sound

Does anyone know of anything like this? I have found 2 out of 3 but not all 3.

Thanks.

Avoid surround headphones - sound shit.

Avoid bluetooth - cost too much.

Microphone - only get if you plan to use alot for gaming.

Headphones of choice for me are Sennheisser HD212pro.

They sound great.

I want to use them for gaming, yeah. I just hate wires. Surround sound is not top of my list. But wireless with MIC is. Doesn't look that particular seinheiser is wireless.

No, it isn't.

As I said, wireless will cost alot.

I recommend finding out if there are sennheissers that are available in wireless (pretty sure there are a few available).

Wireless with mic, you are probably looking at logitech.

Wireless headphones: http://headphones.com.au/pbrowse?catID=1&subCatID=19

If they're on that site they're decent.

None of those have MICs, I'd pick up a desk MIC and use that instead.

I wouldn't recommend wireless either.

One thing that can be said, if you drop them an email and ask them their opinion on what the best product is they'll often lead you in the right direction.

Also, the forums there are very handy. The guy who runs the store always posts his honest opinions.
