    I'm talking about headphones like the ones that Pro gamers use. Like surround sound headphones or headphones that have LIVE chat with them. 

    If so, which one do you use?

    Yes, I have an Astro headset, I know it was ridiculously over priced but they're the best headphones I've ever had and the built in voice-chat is awesome.

    Nope, I've never tried. Do you need special gaming headphones?

    I heard great reviews about it. Is it hard to set up? Like complicated or straightforward?

    No, I like the sound of the games coming from the TV and being in private chat on my headset.

    Would you recommend the Astro A40's or the Tritton ax360 or wait for the Tritton AXPRO, because i've been debating whether to hold up or not. I really need a headphones like those.

    I'm not sure of the price on the Tritton's (if they're substantially cheaper you might want these) but I highly recommend the Astro A40's.

    I do, I use Sanheizer (sp) headsets wired through my comp speakers. I mainly used them because I could not hear the dialogue in halo 3 very well. They don't come with a mic though...  100$ for em, they are wonderful!

    I just purchased the Tritton AX360's and I can't wait to test them out, i'll give you guys a heads up and review it when i'm done. It looks pretty good. When the AXPRO's come out, i'll def be getting those.

    I've been using the ax360's for over a year now. I really like 'em - the surround sound is amazing, plus they have excellent bass response. They are a little heavy, though.

    At the moment i do actually use headphones for my 360. I'm using a pair of Sennheiser HD555's, but I've been thinking about picking up a pair of 5.1 headphones since I've heard some goods thing about them.
    I use headphones since i usually play in the middle of the night and i live in a student corridor with walls they could be thicker.

    I know this is going to sound dumb, and it is probably really easy to set up, but I have never used them because I don't know how to set it up. =) So.. any suggestions on how? and which ones should I get?

    The only time I use headphones is when i'm playing Drums on Rock Band.  I can hear the bass pedal a little better and it seems like there's zero latency.

    Hell, I rarely even listen to what's going on in a game, unless it's a story-heavy game with a lot of dialogue (i don't care to read, but I'd rather hear the dialogue if the voice-acting is well done). Usually, I keep the sound down kind of low--loud enough to hear sound effects like gunfire and whatnot, but that's it--and listen to a podcast, or DVD commentary.

    Im going to have to, for im moving my tv (hopfully) up to my room. And my dad goes to sleep really early. So it will be my only option. But now that you mention it, it will probably be beneficial to my play. Ill be able to hear incoming enemies better.

    Most of my gaming comes when my wife is sleeping, so I use headphones quite a bit.

    I prefer earbuds, so I use either the Sony's or the Phillips simulated surround buds.  Neither costs too much.

    Since I'm mostly playing single player at night, I don't need to worry about a Live mic.

    It depends on the game, etc.. but sometimes I use the earforce headset and off topic.. I have a awesome logitech headset I use for pc gaming.. I haven't tried them with my x360.. I'm not sure if they are compatible.  *pondering*
