I made this poll so I could decide what to purchase for a third party. The recipient insists on wireless and an integrated microphone, which are two things most audiophiles would rather not work with. This is for PC gaming, and we need Linux compatibility (along with MS-Windows compatibility), along with good surround performance. As a former radio station worker, she also prefers circumaural ("around-ear", rather than compressing the earlobe) cans that are reasonably comfortable, but not necessarily super light-weight. I know almost nothing about surround-sound in headphones, but tried to select items that were well-regarded online (probably including considerable astroturf). My intention is to purchase whatever model wins this poll, provided it meets the above specs.

If the recipient's ears are small, the Skullcandy PLYR 1 would be a good option. Skullcandy acquired Astro Gaming, and it's Astro's tech inside of the PLYR 1--same virtual surround sound too.
