Came today with no carrying case I think Newegg needs to update their product description. I guess I can use the plastic double sided clam-shell for transporting to LANs. Looks more sturdy than a cloth bag haha.
HEADS UP: KEEP MANUAL SHEET HAS YOUR S/N.

Well, half the people may have been referring to the Siberias, but I have Siberias and 4xb, and the 4xb sound just a little better anyway. My Siberias are very old and worn and V1, though.
I'm surprised this deal has so much attention actually since just last week the 4xb was $20 and I'd have to look again but don't think it got too much attention, and that also came with the Xbox plug-in thing that also can be used as a USB-powered volume booster.
Reading so many people say the Fatality quality isn't that great vs. the Steelseries also surprised me since I don't think V1 Siberias or 4xb are all that durable. The speakers are, yeah, and I think the V1 mic is great, but both cups broke off my V1 pretty quickly and I had to Macgyver them.
One thing worth mentioning in pretty much any headphones thread is whether they are open or closed back. I don't know about these, but at least some of the Steelseries are open, and if someone wants to use headphones so other people can't hear what they're hearing, open backs aren't going to work very well.

I've been using one for late night movie watching so as not to disturb the neighbors.
They work great.

steelseries 5xb vs fatality headset which is better in terms of audio and microphone performance?
-Currently own the 5xb and the audio sounds like putting a bucket over your head.
-The microphone on the 5xb is very low quality, has a hiss noise, and has a low sensitivity range as tested on audacity.
-microphone has to be in your mouth in order to get any microphone pickup.

I usually try and warn people away from throwing their money away on "gamer" marketed peripherals of any kind, but you aren't going to find many fully functional mic/headphone combinations cheaper than this. If you have a limited budget and need to communicate during PC games, this is hard to beat.
Still, don't expect anything "quality" about the sound or the build of these headphones. There are a lot of $20 sets of headphones without mics or the xtreme gamer branding that would get you better sound for the money. And, as with just about every "gamer" headset, fraying/shorts from poor build quality will catch up with you sooner or later (probably sooner).
