I am looking to get a new set of gaming headphones, and I really enjoyed the ones that were available in the PC freeplay area at PAX '08. Anyone recall what make/model they were?

(Look a sponsor is getting a sale!)

    There were two, very similar, types...

    Closed ears...

    and

    Open ears...

    They're really comfy, and for the price they make an awesome value. Plus they're PAX supporters!

    What's the difference between open ear and closed ear?

    Closed ear = more isolated sound, open ear = can hear more of your surroundings.

    They're awesome, using the pair I won at the Plantronics booth right now. Kinda like putting a vice-grip on your head at first but they fit rather nicely. Only gripe is the sound quality on the Audio .370's (slightly older plantronics model) seems a bit better, but I love the stow-away mic boom too much to go back :P .

    It's been pointed out that I had reversed the open ear and closed ear links. Sorry about that! I've fixed it now.
