In the Xbox forum, they've got a great thread on gaming headsets. I'm sure they'll have more info than what you're finding here.

The X41's seem like a pretty good value. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be very many multichannel wireless headphones out there. The latest Sony and Pioneer versions are more than double the price.
And AKG has a pair that retails for over $1000.
There is also the Sennheiser RS 170, but I read somewhere that it only simulates surround and doesn't decode DD, DTS etc. However, it can be had for a more reasonable price (around $240) and you can usually count on Sennheiser for a quality product.

Ok, I got a set of X41's.. They are great!!! Sound is clear and crisp. You can hear all of the foot steps, shell casings hitting the ground, people sneeking up on you! Im glad I bought them!! I have to use them at night so my kids and wife can sleep.
No big deal that I can't use chat but it seems to be a bunch of cursing and young kids anyways so I can care less!!
If your debating a set or not, I say get them!!!!!Very easy set-up, voulme is loud if you want it and can activate 'bass' or not. Comfortable too; my 5 year old son uses them too!!!
