Professional Players Headsets?

Why do they wear so many?
They have Earbuds, then headphones, then another one with a mic around their neck.

What's the purpose of that? Why not just have 1?

I'd assume one is game sounds (Headphones), one is for talking (Mic around neck), and one is for hearing team communication (Earbuds)?

Enlighten me to their ways :o

i would like to know this as well... i mean it CAN be more comfortable for some people to have 2 headsets (one around their neck) but 100% of players do this.. is it some kind of standard?

I'm pretty sure that one is for the game sounds and team communication, another for talking and the last one is for noise-cancelling.

This. The headphones they have on their ears are game sound/noise cancellation. The earbuds are used to hear your team and the mics around their necks are for talking to their team.

EDIT: actually, I think the headphones are used strictly for noise cancellation. The earbuds are used for game sound and hearing your teammates.
