What sort of budget do you have?

Also, I'd recommend against surround sound headsets. They often have a lot of crappy speakers, which don't sound nearly as good as a couple of good ones. You only have 2 ears, you don't needs tons of speakers in each one to hear where stuff is.

This. You'd be much better off buying a pair of headphones with excellent sound stage, and then using a sound card for CMSS 3D or Dolby Headphone.

The console war is over, both consoles have gone casual, neither won the war. They both just kind of...gave up.

Great for last gen consoles if you need to mix your chat. Overpriced for PC. A $30 sound card will do the same thing.
