If anyone uses any of these headphones made by the topics brands, then please post why you like them so other people can have a sense of what they can expect if they plan to buy them.

I'd like to know also. =)

I have the Turtle Beach Ear Force X41's. I honestly have no complaints with them at all. I have tried the X3's and the Tritton Pro's. The sound quality was superior to the Trittons in every way. The Tritton's are a little bit cheaper but if you are going to buy headset you might as well go all out and get the X4's since they are the best bang for your buck. Word of advice though, you might want to get some rechargeable batteries seeing as the X4's only last around 20 hrs of play time. Which isn't bad but can go by rather quickly.

If you have the money to spend, I would get the Astro A40's with the Mixamp. They have amazing sound quality and I have had no complaints.

I also have the Astros. Very good sound quality, good quality in general. You won't be disappointed with them. I can't speak to the other brands however.

everyone talks trash about Turtle Beach. I have the x31. 
and they work perfectly for what I use them for, I'm not MLG and have no desire to ever be MLG so I will not rake out major cash for a set of MLG headsets

Astro A40's all the way. can be used with anything you ever need/want headphones for, has a detachable mic, etc. Sound quality is orgasmic. But , like the guy above, I can't say anything for other brands...

So ended up getting the Astro's, cool.
 
I have used the Tritton AXPro's, Turtle beach Earforce X41s and I own a pair of Astro A40s now. The A40s are easily the best pair out of the bunch although they are quite expensive. If you have the money to drop I whole heartedly recommend them over Trittons and Turtle Beaches offerings.

Hmm, i guess im in the minority, but I have a set of tritton ax360's.  I like em a lot.  They work well for me with both my 360 and PC.
