    HP Premium Digital Headset - Available for 30 euros in Fnac Leuven Belgium

    What I want:
    - Stereo (No 5.1 bogus)
    - Wire
    - USB or 3.5mm jack with 3.5mm preferred
    - Less than 50 euros in price
    - Excellent sound

    Also what I found was:
    Creative Tactic3D Alpha for only 30 euros

    I would suggest looking into the Superlux HD-668 B. I've read good reviews about it and i'm considering getting one myself.

    Another contender, without a mic though, could be the Panasonic HTF600 for 48$, 37€. I like them a lot, they're dark sounding, much more so than the Sennheiser HD650, and with a nice dominating bass.

    As Jopa, I've also heard good things about the Superlux HD-668B. I have the Superlux HD681, which I like, it's pretty bright and punchy sounding, but I by far prefer the HTF600.

    Nope, sadly but there are good cheap headphones and a separate mic would cost under $10.

    In the audio world, you can have cheap and excellent sound quality but usually never at the same time.

    depends on what you gonna use them headphones for. Creative Fatal1ty HS-800 are quite good for like 30-40EUR. It depends what u gonna use ur headphones for.
