I bought Phillips HG100 gaming headphones with "Force Feedback" system and I must say that I'm quite impressed of this hardware.

It just add little more immersion of being there. You can feel the engines, explosions, guns, etc. Of course it's not perfect because it takes the effect from sounds but it does quite good job.

I bought typhoon FF headphones /w boommic as an impulse purchase from LIDL (25€) just to test them off. Didnt have any great expectations. After all its just a headset with a bass vibrating unit.

I tested it and whoaa! It truly added a lot of immersion and now I wouldnt want to play without them. Its awesome when your head starts to shake when you pull the trigger, and it does *not* downgrade you gunnery in the game like an FF stick could do. Also, its great when your motor is in the low revs range and you feel the parts of the plane vibrating due to the low momentum.

For the price theyre a steal. Ill urge ppl to try them out. The immersion add is on par with TIR and fresnel lens.
