    Hey guys,
    After flogging some stuff, I have some spare cash.
    Now, looking to spend about £25 on a new headset for gaming, and general multimedia + music.

    Key points:
    -Decent bass
    -Comfy even after hours of wear
    -Good mic with noise-cancelling

    The two Ive spotted so far are:
    -Plantronics GameCom 367

    -Ozone SPARK
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=SP-002-OZ&groupid=702&catid=1058&subcat=
    Ive never heard of Ozone and am struggling to find reviews, tbh.

    Which of the two is better? Or are there any other better alternatives?

    Thanks,
    Alistair

    I've also never heard of Ozone, however I've heard that the Plantronics are quite good for the cheap price

    Plantronics GameCom's as mentioned by Yarwood, are decent for the price. :)

    Cool, Ive just noticed that the Plantronics GameCom 377 is also just in my budget, would they be better for the extra £6 or is there no discernible difference?

    the difference between the 367s and the 377s is that the 367s are closed ear and the 377s are open ear. all a matter of choice because the hardware is the same inside.

    Closed ear = more background noise cancelling?

    Yes, closed will keep noise out a lot better than open.
