Hi LH, very good quality headphones are the Sennheiser PC161 or if you are only looking for a small headset then the PC 121. I personally use the PC161 for gaming and skype/messenging and have never had problems with echoes!! Matt

PC161 looks good (I like Sennheiser, but impossible to find locally to test) expensive, so should I take your word on it that it will work for me ? (If I buy blind on the net).

LH:

Buying headphones is alot like buying a pair of shoes. Expensive does not always mean comfortable.
Sennheiser is a well known and respected brand, but I wouldn't buy them without trying them on first.

In my humble opinion.

Well as I said the PC161 are really good. I sometimes wear them for up to 6 hours whilst gaming!! They are really comfortable, the sound quality is excellent (as you would expect from Sennheiser) and I have personally never had problems whilst chatting. That said, I have a fast internet connection, so I wouldn´t know if the "echo thing" has anything to do with DSL speeds. Matt

EDIT: Whatever you decide to choose I would ask the online retailer if headphones can be returned if not to your satisfaction. I used to work in a large electrical/multimedia store here in Germany and headphones were classed as hygenic articles and could not be returned!!
