If you are purely interested in gaming with them, I would look for something with 7.1 audio and maybe wireless USB instead of bluetooth.

 

If you want to used them in other applications they should sound great, noise canceling is great on the bus or airplane.

They look like an older pair of BT headphones, so that means they'll likely lag. No bueno for gaming unless you have a wired mode you can use while gaming specifically. If you're buying, at that price just get an HyperX Cloud of some kind. They're good headsets.
