I would like the ability to select multiple, as I use my PC speakers if it's single player, and use my headphones if it's Multiplayer.

I've headphones jack on my keyboard, so when stereo system is ON sounds are in headphones and stereo twice - sometimes it's sucks coz i wear headphones and forgot about 500W stereo... My father like to listen music by stereo on high volume so i can sometimes forget about it and then...

personally i only use my speakers to listen to music and stuff... then i dont use headphones but a headset to game, yelling at ppl with my voice instead of typing everything out is much easier to do; also it doesnt interfere with my gaming.

Some headsets have good bass output but nothing beats a real sub :)
5.1 kit for me. I sometimes use headphones for multiplayer because people's voices tend to have a lot of bass which sometimes sounds wierd

I use my Sony studio monitors. Clear sound, deep bass down to 18hz, and not too bulky.

Speakers. They are for filling a room with sound. They don't isolate you from the real world. And I like to hear what is happening around me. Headphones are meant for portable media devices and are meant for only one person. They also isolate you. But at least no one can hear you. And I have heard that they are bad for your years...

Headphones... as with the neighbors I can't use speakers at a medium volume (older house so walls transmit sound like hell) and at low volume you hear nothing.
