Good luck finding a good pair of headphones with lights on them -.-

Btw fuck USB headphones, the USB soundcard is just a bottleneck for the headphones 99% of the times (this includes the HyperX Cloud II and Asus ROG Orion Pro as well as many other popular USB "gaming" headphones).

 

Blue snowball+ HD 558

^^^great deal ^^^
