I have had Turtle Beach PX21's and have been very satisfied. The right earcup recently stopped working. I'm looking to replace them but not sure what type or what company to go to. Any help would be nice. (Doesn't have to be Turtle Beach brand either.)

I have the Tritton AX Pro and it is very good. I wanted a headset with true 5.1 sound (not simulated). It isn't as good as say my regular 5.1 system, but I find the separation to be just great for headphones.

I've taken a look at those, and they are in my top 5.

along with something that looks like this:

With that, I can use my headset on skype via PC, Playstation 3, and bought another adaptor that allowed it to connect to my xbox360 controller as well.

That made Nintendo's E3 for me.

What's your budget range TC? Are you willing to spend a lot on a 5.1/7.1 surround sound headset? Or will a stereo gaming headset will suffice?

I have a PX21 as well with the Ear Force DSS surround sound add-on. It's simply awesome. It's unfortunate your PX21 stopped working for you.

I love my PX5s but don't love how if you have it sitting near a router it causes interferrence.
