    you know I was thinking about getting those, but heard somewhere that I need a splitter or something because I live in the US - different plugs

    there are different versions, the link I sent was the US version, no splitter needed. they used to use a clunky sound box as well which is no longer the case, thus the V2.

    Strictly for gaming? No. the difference is the home edition has that input box that allows you to connect multiple source devices.

    Is that actually circumaural or just supra-aural? I'm kind of sick of the latter... can't wear them for any decent length of time.

    I spotted one headset on Sennheiser's site that definitely was, but it was $250... which makes me think twice.
