Hi I'm deciding between these 2 headsets and I would like everyone's opinion.

I'll be using them mainly for gaming and maybe music every so often.

I just ordered the Gamecom 780 today, so in about a week I'll be able to give you a review lol.

But from what I can see, the V2 uses your headphone jack, while the 780 runs off USB. So if you have a nice sound card, the V2 will be able to take advantage of that. The 780 will create its own surround sound though so it's probably a better option if you don't have a dedicated sound card.

Are either of them compatible for the Xbox 360?

i own a pair of the siberia v2 and they are extremely comfortable with a nice sound, and they do work on the xbox360 but you need an adapter or buy the headset that comes with it

Okay damn maybe the v2 but the 780 looks nice also!!! They're both really similar in price.

Sennheiser PC360. There is no substitute.
