u/jezterr · 15 pointsr/hometheater

Just wanted to give a big thanks to all the helpful people here who are so willing to share their knowledge, and to u/ZeosPantera for his handy guides.

This was the very first project I wanted to complete in our new house, and considering the delays due to missing/wrong pieces for the furniture, my reluctance to punch holes in the walls in our new place, and so on, it was a bit of a pain to take on. My main goals were to keep it simple, modern, and clean, and I think I managed it well enough.

It's a basic setup, and I know there are some taboo things people will point out (e.g. speakers too close to the corners/walls, non O2-free copper-clad wire, etc), but the important thing is that I'm happy with it. I don't plan on changing much for years to come (unless you guys end up pointing out something that ends up bothering the crap out of me). It looks and sounds great - even the wife loves it, despite her initial skepticism when I first told her my plan (probably the most important thing).

So many thanks to everyone in this subreddit for being awesome, and let me know what you guys think.

As requested, here are the components.


u/__U_WOT_M8__ · 14 pointsr/anime

Guest or Regular: I don't really care, but since I'm on quite frequently I'd have to say regular.

User Name/Other Names: U WOT M8 is fine, but I don't mind being called by my real name.

Age Group: 0-15

Reasons for Wanting to Join: My brother committed suicide after not being able to join a podcast group, and my mother soon followed suit. Her last words to me were "please U WOT M8, honor our family and join a podcast group."

But seriously, I think it would be fun and I would like to discuss things with people for real instead of starting Nisekoi or F/SN flame wars like I usually do.

Past Discussion/Analysis/Review: I have two public reviews up on MAL, and at one time I had 5. However, I felt that they weren't really up to my standards so I took them down.

The headset I'm using if anyone's wondering

u/Zolor23 · 11 pointsr/buildapcsales

Arctis 7 for $62 seems like a good deal - buying the ones that only say imperfections on packaging might end up being brand new ones in damaged boxes.


u/arkhira · 10 pointsr/Overwatch

I have been using the Logitech G430 for about 8 months now for PC gaming and love them.

Some other possible headsets:

u/ashes2ashes · 8 pointsr/Stadia

I love the comfort and performance of these Steel Series I have and they work on anything.
Just plug them directly into the Stadia controller jack.

u/ChampOfTheUniverse · 6 pointsr/pcmasterrace
u/whostolemytv · 5 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

The 77 original price seems grossly inflated. Here is the non GT model for 29

The GT model is available in the states for 22 USD or 18 USD at walmart.

u/MentalToast · 5 pointsr/battlestations

Absolutely no prob :)

My mom reviews electronics for a living so we end up getting tons of new devices really often and generally need to find cables to match so things are being switched out and added in all the time. To make it more convenient instead of having to go sort through a box or into a drawer and untangle cables I wanted something super easy access to so that if i needed an hdmi , bam, I had one. Same with the others.

For the controllers I used Stick-On Game Controller Hooks 2 Pack. The snes and nes usb controllers are simply hung via a tack.

I got a simple ~$10 corkboard from walmart, used a label maker for the labels and then used CraZy TACKz 36tacks to hang the cables. I wouldn't recommend them though, a standard tack works better honestly ( In theory a hook is great but they loosen and then swing around making it a pain to re-orient them when you're taking things on and off frequently.)

The headphones under the desk is The Anchor Great adhesive, super cheap and can orient it vertically or horizontally which lets you fit two pair ( in my case one for skype/discord+gaming and the other for general use since it has better quality but no mic)

For anyone else curious about the other pieces of the set up:

the desk is Series A:72inch Desk by Bush Business Furinture.

The lights are EconoLed RGB 5M 3528 LED Strip Light 300leds

Mousepad is Reflex Lab Huge Gaming Mouse Pad

The headphones are :
SteelSeries Arctis 5
and Audio-Technica ATH-A900X

Monitors are : ASUS VN279QL and Dell U3417W FR3PK

Keyboard is : Razer BlackWidow X Tournament Edition Chroma

Mouse is : Razer Naga Hex v2

u/tr1ppn · 4 pointsr/Wishlist

I searched/researched all morning. I settled on the Sennheiser PC 350 SE. Best reviews, brand I trust, good price, and compatible with everything.

u/DukeFlukem · 4 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I recommend Logitech g930 or Corsair because they seem to be the most reliable and best value right now. You can get Creative wireless headsets for around the same price but they have much worse sound quality. You can also get very slightly better sounding wireless headphones for about 2-3x the price if you think it's worth it.

u/yeah_it_was_personal · 4 pointsr/buildapcsales

So, my strongest recommendation is going to be to get a regular headset and run either the integrated mic if you're on a laptop, or use a cheapo USB mic. For whatever reason, headsets are more expensive for decent quality fidelity.


I'm going to circlejerk Sennheiser: $50, $70, also 70$


And AudioTechnica: 50$


Especially if you're planning on streaming, you can get a great non-mic OEs for midrange price, and splurge on the mic.

u/oh_great_ones · 4 pointsr/xboxone

Yes. Mine are Bluetooth and connected the same way a wireless controller does.

u/Stephenishere · 3 pointsr/gamingpc

PC350s are good

I personally own the PC360 but it looks like I can't find one reasonably priced anymore. They are great open ear headphones, the PC350s are closed ear but sound great too.

u/captaintesticals · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Sennheiser PC350s, they're bloody fantastic.

This is the best I could do without touching the video card which is the most important component for gaming. You probably need a headset as well I guess. If you really do, go with this build which will be exactly within budget:

Depending on which AAA games you play the video card might be enough for a good gaming experience. For some it might struggle with keeping 60+fps. Also here is a link to mouse/keyboard and here to the headset, for some reason their weren't listed on pcpartpicker.

u/Ryuu19941229 · 3 pointsr/Overwatch

I've been using a Logitech G430 for nearly 2 years now. Pretty cheat headset, nice sounding with virtual 7.1 and pretty decent microphone, and the build quality is pretty nice (I have a big head and so far it didn't broke unlike 2 tritton headsets for more than double the price).

The headset by default had a pretty shitty sound quality, but after you turn on the Dolby 7.1 in the headset's driver, the difference is like Heaven and Hell.

My friend uses a Steelseries Siberia v2 and he's pleased with his too, though his headset's stripe got ripped but still in use.

For gaming, You don't need to spend a lot for a headset. If you're an audiophile you might consider going for higher price perephials, but for hearing things and talking to others you'll find decent ones for 50-80 pounds.

u/olliewright97 · 3 pointsr/pcgaming

I used to have a Logitech G430 headset ( which is at your budget, that was very comfortable and lasted a long time, in fact it still works, I only upgraded to the G930 recently because I wanted a wireless headset, but if your budget sits at £50 the G430 is a great headset for the price, if you can stretch to ~£90, the G930 is just slightly more practical with the wireless capabilities. Both great choices in my opinion.

u/crashsuit · 3 pointsr/MECoOp

I've had these for a couple years:

A little on the cheap side to look at but super comfortable to wear, sound is good, never had complaints about the mic, and the price is right.

u/_Mister_Pickle_ · 3 pointsr/GlobalOffensive

and 30% of you don't own one. I understand money can be tough for some folks, but for $9 you can buy a microphone off amazon here. And for five more dollars you could get a headset here. Amazon will ship it to you for free; yes it will take it awhile to get to your house, but better late than never! So for the investment of the game itself you can get the one piece of hardware that is needed to accelerate your play, and make you better. Please use 1 hour of your paycheck to buy this. Ya they may not be great, but they will work.

u/Rasangone · 3 pointsr/gaming

I have the Turtle Beach Ear Force PX22 Amplified Universal Gaming Headset ( . It was on sale for $54.99 few months ago. I recommend getting a wired handset because you don't have to deal with battery life.

u/HiPitchEricsFishMits · 3 pointsr/xboxone

If you miss out on this groupon deal or for some reason can't get these now, Amazon appears to have refurbished versions of these as well for $120 as a regular price.

u/Zatama · 3 pointsr/gaming

Any open ear headphones will do the trick. As for my personal recommendation I have to go with The Sennheiser Game One.
I picked them up a year ago or so and haven't looked back. Excellent audio quality with an open ear design so you can still hear what's going on around you in the real world.

u/Queenjii · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I've been using Corsair H2100 for the past few years. Great build quality, sound (7.1!) and comfort. The ear pads material is REALLY good. They have in-built mic and a volume adjustment. Battery lasts about 10 hours (you can use the headset while it's charging), and the signal range is also very good.

EDIT: They're around $100 on Amazon

u/Ganrokh · 3 pointsr/WorkOnline

I've been working from home for a little under two years now. My setup is a little pricey, but I've paid for it working completely online, so that's a nice feeling.

I currently don't have a desk (won't have room until I move in with my girlfriend in a few months), so I work on a laptop for now. The laptop is a gaming laptop. I have a gaming laptop because, I'm not looking to simply "work" for an income. During the day, I work online while my laptop mines a cryptocurrency in the background. Crypto mining has definitely been a profitable venture for me. In the evening, I stream for a few hours on Twitch. I'm not a big established streamer, but I've made a little bit of income from streaming.

Because of not having a desk, I don't really have room for a second screen. However, I do have a Acer R11 Chromebook that I usually keep a couple Chrome tabs open to monitor various things. The touch screen is really nice as well.

My mouse is a Razer Naga. I am a man of efficiency and I believe that, for online workers like ourselves who are usually getting paid by getting work done and not by the hour, efficiency and productivity are key. The keypad on the side of the mouse work wonders. Being able to program different keys and even scripts to them is amazing. Some people prefer the Logitech equivalent to it.

The headset is going to ultimately come down to personal preference. There are many, many different headsets out that that come in all sorts of shapes and styles. Do you want over-the-ear? On-ear? Do you want the band to go over the head? Behind the head? Do you need a wireless headset because you have kids at home and you need to get up often? Reviews may not be too reliable as well. For example, with gaming headsets, if you go to any gaming forum or subreddit and ask about gaming headsets, people will have you believe that the HyperX Cloud II Headset is the greatest headset put on God's green earth. It just wasn't for me. It was a little tight on my head and the audio was a bit too "in my head", which gave me headaches. I much prefer the Astro A40 TR Headset.

Finally, you're going to want to protect your eyes. If you work online, you're going to be staring at a screen for hours on end. If you're looking at a screen, you're exposed to artificial blue light. Artificial blue light is meant to emulate sunlight. Exposing your eyes to it will strain your eyes, which can disrupt your sleeping patterns, cause headaches, elevate stress, etc. That's only in the short term. In the long term, well, screens emitting blue light haven't been around long enough yet, so we don't really know what the long term effects of it is. Still, you need to protect your eyes. There are a handful of companies that make glasses designed to specifically filter out blue light. When I used to wear specific glasses for this, my preferred brand was Gunnar Optiks. I say "used to wear" - I had to get prescription glasses recently and my eye doctor offered blue light protection in my glasses. I believe it's called "Prevencia". If you have to wear prescription glasses, ask about it next time you see your eye doctor.

Hope this helps!

Edit: I forgot to mention F.lux. F.lux is a program that reduces the amount of blue light your screen emits based on the time of day, emulating a sunset. At night, it gives your screen a red/orange lighting. At night, after the sun has set and F.lux kicks on on my screen, I take my glasses off. It's a very nice program.

u/blondjokes · 3 pointsr/xboxone

Just the Astro headset without the mixamp is $100.50, and it is much better quality than the xo four. If you get the mixamp it does make it over 3 times better, and you can create your own audio presets using AstroCC.

Edit: if you don't believe me look for yourself

u/Qudideluxe · 3 pointsr/titanfall

Hyper X Cloud Brand. Im currently using a Hyper X Cloud Stinger and its fantastic. Great audio, great mic and great build quality. And its fairly cheap. You can even push your mic up so its not annyoing you when you are not using it. Hyper X Cloud 1 and Hyper X Cloud 2(newer and better generation) are also great headsets.

Hyper X Cloud Stinger Mic has a click mechanic, cheapest of the bunch

[Hyper X Cloud]( detachble mic

Hyper X Cloud 2 detachble mic, better audio

Hyper X Cloud Revolver Pro detachble mic best audio of the bunch currently on sale for 80 bucks

Hope i could help (งツ)ว

Also for those wondering what the differences are:

u/MrPlatypusGaming · 3 pointsr/mixer

Okay then here is my recommendation from what I was looking around at. I currently have an Arctis 7 wireless headset which I would recommend.. Super comfortable and includes a lot of stuff. You should be able to connect the wireless headphone transmitter to your computer. and then connect the aux cable into your xbox controller. This will enable you to have the game and audio chat settings on your computer. If you go in and disable the game audio settings you can have discord audio in the audio slider and the xbox on the game slider and both should be able to use the mic. If not I would recommend getting a either a Blue snowball or Blue Yeti mic as they aren't crazy expensive and they work amazing for stream quality. Here is a link to the headset.. ( if you want to dm me and get in a discord I can kind of show you my set-up and how I think it would all work and help you set it up too!

u/D0PETHR0NE · 3 pointsr/HeadphoneAdvice

I would return that thing even if it was in perfect condition:


The only headsets worth anyone's money are the newer Hyper X models (Cloud, Cloud Mix) and the Coolermaster MH752. These are 70 - 120.

u/throwaway20131103 · 2 pointsr/PS4

There are a couple of ways:

  1. The best way - via an Astro MixAmp. Note that headset audio over USB is currently broken so you'll need to run a from your controller to your MixAmp otherwise other people will sound very quiet.
  2. The convenient way - to the controller via an adapter like

    If you're considering a PC 360 sit tight. The price should drop back to $166 soon:

    Alternatively the PC 350 is $145:
u/ShearMe · 2 pointsr/headphones

I'd go with a PC350 because it's cheaper. All the other audiophile grade headsets are over priced compared to their headphone equivalents, so there's not a ton of options on that front unfortunately, and all the gaming-company headsets are meh for various reasons.

Edit: recently got my hands on a Plantronics RIG, and was somewhat surprised at how not-terrible they sounded. I know they use GameCom Commander's for a certain LoL tournament, so that might be a decent cheaper option.

u/roastpuff · 2 pointsr/OutreachHPG

I will chime in with another vote for the Sennheiser PC series - their bigger models (3xx series) are full over ear, and are amazing. Very durable - I've had one last me 5-7 years and still working fine, the pads just wore out. I've had two now because I left one at my parents' house when I was moving out and I bought another one to replace it.

They are a bit more expensive, but think of them as a long-term investment. They have some of the best microphones that I have used for PC headsets, the sound is clear, amazing, and allows you to pin-point people walking around you in FPS, the quality is unbeatable and the cord is nice and long.

See link here: Sennheiser PC350

u/ruskininja · 2 pointsr/gaming

Sennheiser PC 350 has an amazon offer for $225. Sennheiser headsets put Astros/TurtleBeaches to shame in sound quality.

u/BionicSammich · 2 pointsr/xboxone

I just got a set of A50s the other day (had A40 wireless that pretty outdated). Absolute beasts. I'd recommend them to anyone. They are $300 new or $175 refurbished (normally $200 refurbished). Absolutely nothing wrong with the refurbs, I'd recommend them. You will need an official Chat adapter for voice chat though. If you don't use chat, they are 100% wireless (1 wire for chat).

u/ebaydan777 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace
u/RIFT-VR · 2 pointsr/oculus is what I currently use. Surprisingly amazing sound. Deep bass and crisp highs, decent enough at cancelling noise. Wireless, and no static/interference. Amazing. Pricey though!

The wireless part is BIG for VR. Not having that extra wire is great.

u/Abstracting_You · 2 pointsr/roosterteeth

Nope, lately it has been the Astro A40 or A50

u/construktz · 2 pointsr/SuggestALaptop

What's your budget for a headset? The Logitech G930 is on a HUGE sale for the next 3 hours. I paid $160 for mine 3 years ago. I did finally replace it after 2 years due to diminishing battery life, but it was great for the years I used it. I bound one of the side buttons to ventrilo push to talk and would walk around the house talking to my guild (sometimes went outside and smoked a cigarette, the range is long). Seriously, at it's current price, I'd buy 2 if I were you and test both and put one back in the box until you destroy your first one. I used mine on average 12 hours a day for 2+ years before I managed to kill it.

If you have more money to spend, get the Astro A50. Much higher quality than the G930, but you pay out the ass for it. I got the wired version, which is the Astro A40, and it's really an amazing headset, but I really, really wish I spent the extra on an A50, because once you go wireless, it's SO hard to go back.

u/Teasylife · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Anyone recommend some good headphones/headset? I was thinking of getting this headset, or getting these headphones and a Zalman clip on mic. My budget isn't huge, but still want good quality mic and audio. Thanks.

u/nimskido · 2 pointsr/buildapcforme

Wow! This looks like an excellent build; thanks for going through the hassle and choosing the parts for me.

Couple of questions though:

  • For the monitor, isn't 21.5" quite small? Would this monitor be better even though its ~£15 more expensive?

  • Do you think the headphones are good for use with glasses? Because these Sennheisers hurt like fuck, especially when using them for a couple of hours. I also found this which is £40 cheaper, but I don't know about the quality etc. Surely, if it's more expensive, its better (sometimes lol). Or these.

  • Why do I need a £15 mousepad? What actual difference does it make than that of a cheap £5 mouse pad? Atm, I have the Fellowes Microban mousepad.

  • Is the cpu cooler needed even though the cpu is not over clockable? I've posted on /r/builadpc a few times and many have said that if you aren't overclocking, then there is no point for the cpu cooler since the stock does fine. Also, do you recommend that I buy additional case fans?

  • What's wrong with a laser pointer?

  • Are there any gpus which are better than the r9 280x? But for around £100 more?

    Sorry for the bombardment of questions, I just wanna be completely certain before I buy my parts lol.
u/BJLurch · 2 pointsr/headphones

Location - UK

Budget - ~£60, flexible on price. Lower is also perfectly fine.

Source - Will be using them for Console gaming mostly but with a chunk of films and music also. So a bit of everything but mostly gaming.

Requirements for Isolation - Will be using them at home so no preference here, open or closed is fine.

Preferred Type of Headphone - Over Ear / Circumaural. I have a large head and fairly large ears and will be wearing them for fairly long periods of time for gaming so large cans would also be preferable.

Preferred tonal balance - Not too sure, whatever is best for the things which I will be doing. Maybe a bit more on the Bass side.

Past headphones - I am new to the world of decent headphones so my past consists of the bog standard apple and in ear Samsung earphones etc.

Preferred Music - Fairly general taste in music, little bit of everything but probably favour R&b/Rap and dance/ electro a bit more.

Notes - I have spent the past week looking into getting a pair of headphones but I am still fairly lost as to what to get with such a huge variety. The AD700s and Senn 558s and other models above those are widely recommended but they seem to cost almost twice as much in the UK as they do in the US and so they are out of my price range which is disappointing.
Audio Technica M50s and Senn HD 518s can be had for around £80 but they are really pushing it price wise for me unless they are definitely worth it. Found some cheaper Senns like the 419s or the 429s but what is their quality like? Sony MDR-V6s are also another pair i have seen recommended.

Obviously for gaming I would pair these with a clip on mic of some description. something like the Zalman clip on or similar and a 2 to 1 splitter to plug into the DS4 controller. The dislike of gaming headsets is well known but never the less I have seen a couple recommended here and there and they are reasonably priced so it's not a total loss if they are useless: [The Logitech G430] ( and the Plantronics GameCom 780.

PS4 will likely be my console of choice that I will be using these for if that makes any difference. I have seen lots of talk about surround sound in relation to gaming headphones but a lot of it seems to be for PC, will it function properly on consoles too? does anyone know if the sound would be impacted if I was to plug into the controller jack or the USB slot on the console?

Thanks in advance.

I see, well for £50 you could always get the G430, it's a really great headset with surround sound. Happy to help!

Some very cheap stuff if you don't mind opened boxes and/or some slightly scuffed items. e.g. Logitech G430 headphones which are described as "Item will come repackaged. Small scratches on top of item (less than 0.6 cm. x 0.6 cm.)" drop to £32 once added to your basket you get to the checkout page.

HyperX Cloud II

  • Built in 7.1 Surround Sound that can easily be toggled on/off
  • 3 meter braided wire
  • Comfy as FUCK
  • Detachable microphone
  • Very reasonable price at around £70-£75

    Probably the best headset I've ever used, and I've owned many headsets over my 14 years of gaming.

    If you're looking for a cheaper headset with similar advantages, check out the Logitech G430 Gaming Headset, a lot cheaper at just £30, with a lot of similarities to the HyperX Cloud II.

But what if you want a mic as well? AFAIK, most non gaming headphones with mics cost a lot more than gaming headphones with mics.

this is one of amazons #1 selling headphones, 4 star rating with over 1k reviews, and they're not even $20.

if you get seinnheiser you're spending a lot more, even for earbuds.

Now whether or not the price differences are worth it one way or the other I'm not trying to say, just that if you want a gaming headset with a mic, it seems like you are better off going with the "gaming" brand rather than more name brands.

  • $0 Free-To-Play games!
  • $39 Top 3 action games on Steam.

    You could even cut these costs down. 1) Most people don't need a headset. 2) you could use a keyboard and or mouse from a previous computer (upgrading from a Xbox 360 to Xbox One or PS3 to PS4 you have to use a new controller not the old one).

  • $499 Xbox One
  • $499 TV (Because peasants believe this works with consoles)
  • $207 3 Games ($70 each)

    It's hard to cut these costs down, maybe you already have a TV, or you can get a 'deal' on a game, but peasants always brag they (allegedly) have 4K TVs.

u/N30FAMOUS · 2 pointsr/gadgets

Wifi extenders (also called repeaters, which you'll see in some places), are made to solve the problem of your router's signal strength not going far enough. So say that you router is in a room that's on the front side of your house. You want to be able to hang out in your backyard (on the other/back side of your house) and surf the web on your laptop/tablet/phone, but your wifi signal doesn't go that far. To fix that, you'd get a repeater and plug it in to a normal wall power outlet somewhere between your router and your backyard (no other wires needed), where you want the signal to extend to. You don't need an ethernet cable to use an extender. Here's an example of an extender. I can go more into extenders and how they work if you want more info.

However, your problem might not be that your wifi signal isn't strong enough (which can be solved by just moving as close to the router as possible, if you don't want to get an extender). It might be your internet speed itself. Your internet speed's divided into download and upload speeds. From what I've read, 10Mb/s of upload speed or more is required to stream, so make sure you've got that (you can check by calling and asking your ISP or by doing a speedtest at or something like that, just note that websites like that are not always reliable/accurate). If you're below 10Mb/s, you might need to upgrade your internet plan.

If you're streaming and gaming online at the same time, I highly recommend that you ditch wireless and use an ethernet cable connecting your computer and your router. That way, you get the most reliable and fastest possible internet connection.

As for the headphones, I'd say to go with the Razer pair (as long as they're not in bad condition or anything), as your Sades cans are up on amazon right now for $15 for a new pair, while the Razer pair is up for $50.

TLDR; You might not need a wireless extender (I explained the type of situation where you would need one); check with your ISP about your upload speeds and make sure they're not below 10 Mb/s. Try to use wired ethernet instead of wifi if you can. Go with the Razer cans.

u/InternetProtocol · 2 pointsr/patientgamers

I just picked these up two days ago, and I'm loving them so far, very good sound quality, the bass is great. The mic is good too, very clear and crisp. Cord is long enough to reach my mic/speaker ports behind my PC and gives me enough space to stand up and take a step. The vol control/mic switch is nice, not heavy, although I wish it had a clip so I could pin it to my shirt. The set seems pretty durable, I havent been babying them too much, either. 5/5 so far.

Source: I've had them for 3 days.

u/tacobizzell · 2 pointsr/thelastofusfactions

I used to use this one, but once I started recording my gameplays I had to upgrade/downgrade to this one.

u/lethaltyrant · 2 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

I use the turtle beach PX22 on PC. It works great with discord. It has a bass and treble along with a game volume and chat volume. If you set it right in windows it works great. Also to me has good sound quality. It is also in your 80 dollar budget. I had one that got broken went and bought another. It is a playstation headset but works great on PC.

I think there is a newer model now PX24.

I am not sure if turtle beach is hated or not but I think they work fine and that's all that matters to me.

u/ILuffhomer · 2 pointsr/GirlGamers

I got Turtle Beach headphones for about $50 that worked on old gen console and do everything I need them to do! I've used them for 12 hour Warcraft sessions and while watching TsV in bed and they're comfortable the whole time. I bet newer models are compatible with PS4.

What I used:

u/Doct0r_Dreidel · 2 pointsr/PS4Deals

If you are ok spending $20 more (still an amazing price imo) you can get them with prime shipping from Amazon.

u/Eklypze · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Yeah the A50s receive sound wirelessly from the pc. I believe you can do PS chat wirelessly but you have to plug into the controller for the xbox. The problem I have with them is that I can't adjust my game and pc sounds through my headset, so I have to adjust my sound on the systems. Unlike my old logitech F540s.

I don't have speakers set up. I'd imagine I'd had to change the source but I'll grab another pair of head phones right now and test it out. So what happens is what ever I plug in my front audio port takes priority.

So, I wouldn't recommend the A50s if you want to have 7.1 surround coming from the PC through the headset without changing audio sources. Since, I currently would have to my change computer source from my usb connection to auxiliary connection to hear my xbox and computer at the same time. So I have 5.1 upscaled to 7.1 in from my system (optical doesn't support 7.1) and stereo coming from my computer.

This review thread could help you find your match. I also find they have a little too much bass for my tastes. 9/10 on comfort.

also if you still wanna buy A50s I'd buy them refurbished through Amazon. Since the new model isn't actually any different hardware wise. Amazon gives 30 day money back guarantee and still offers the 1 year warranty since Astro is still the seller.

u/bladeofchaos95 · 2 pointsr/xboxone

well These would be a brilliant option. they are ADG1's without the mic for $140 less

u/Assyneck · 2 pointsr/Headsets
AD900X with a mic.
Similar to the MSR7

For me the Audio Technica products are some of the most uncomfortable headphones/headsets out there.

I have the ATH-M50x and the ATH-ADG1x.

The ATH-M50x sounds absolutely terrible to me compared to almost all of my other headphones/headsets. The bass drowns out everything else for me. And the pads are so terrible.

Whereas the ATH-ADG1x is one of the best sounding "gaming" headsets I have ever heard. It does everything right except comfort. It's not the headband or anything like that on the Audio Technica products. It is the insanely uncomfortable ear pads on almost everything they make. I guess the ear pads are made for people with smaller ears or something because they are not really over ear headphones/headset they sit on your ear because no-ones ear is a circle. So you have the pad sitting on the top and bottom of your ear and if you can handle that then perfect. I tried to change the ear pads but it ruined the sound. And after about 30 minutes it begins to hurt really bad.

So my recommendation is the ATH-ADG1x, which is essentially a ATH-AD900X with a mic. The sound is fantastic. Very nice bass, perfect sound stage and openness for gaming, but damn do the ear pads ruin it. Also the mic is phenomenal. It also works perfectly with my MixAmp and is actually really great for anything. Movies, music, TV, all sound amazing on these.

Anyway, good luck.

Some alternatives to consider if you value comfort:
This is very close in terms of sound quality to the ATH-ADG1x but absolutely kills it on the comfort side. This headset is my go to recommendation for anyone that wants supreme comfort, way above average sound quality, and no bullshit.
This is extremely comfortable too. It is closed though. But still sounds very very good. And if you like a more "cinematic" sound then these would be the best option. They are slightly bass boosted (but it doesn't drown out anything and sounds so much better compared to the M50x) and everything else like mids and highs are solid as well.

Also, I should mention that all of the headphones/headsets mentioned here will absolutely destroy the A40 in terms of sound quality.

Basically once you hear a better pair of cans you will understand how bad the Astro's sound. It's basically like putting your head in a fishbowl with water in it and listening to speakers on the outside of the fishbowl. Bass that is so strong it drowns out the mids and highs and completely destroys any clarity. The A40's do look cool and feel pretty comfortable and also feel very well built but that is about it.

u/suctionspore · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

u/bombos · 2 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

I bought a Corsair Vengeance 2000, and then a Vengeance 2100 after the band-earcup joint broke on my 2000s. I RMA'ed the first 2000 and ended up with two 2100s. I use one at work and one at home. I really enjoy the wireless freedom even if I have to plug it in sometimes. The mic is solid, the audio is great (music or games, crisp and solid bass), comfortable for long periods of wear, and it's pretty reasonably priced when it's on sale. The nonrefurbished one goes on sale for $100. I recommend them, 5/5 in my personal experience.

Specs are 40 ft range, 10hrs battery life. Here's two reviews from trusted sources, I linked to the final pages (conclusions) for easier reading, but jump through if you're curious.,9.html

The 2100 line was replaced with the H2100s. Those are $120 at NCIX, and $110 (2 in stock) at Amazon:

I have it, sure it's a 'gaming' headset but the quality is still pretty good and it has a wireless USB adapter. It gets charged with Micro USB and comes with a really long cord. Also, you'd be suprised how much surround sound helps in fps games. It's like borderline wall hacks :/.

Yeah someone mentioned Sennheiser above. I have these ones - Sennheiser GSP 300 Closed Acoustic Gaming Headset - Black/Blue

Not only is the sound and mic good, these are by far the comfiest headphones I’ve ever tried and I went through a good 7 or 8 headsets before I finally found a headset I can wear for extended periods of time without it hurting my ears.

u/Jonners_90 · 2 pointsr/CallOfDuty

Sennheiser GSP 300 (301 & 302 are the same thing, just color differences). - The blue one is $79.95 on Best bang for your buck headset on the market. The other best value one would be the Coolermaster MH751.


You don't need virtual surround sound; it's pretty gimmicky. Wireless capability is convenient, but you sacrifice sound and mic quality. Very few headsets do wireless sound and mic well, and the ones that do are very expensive.


With that being said, if you really want both of those features, check out Hardware Canucks wireless headset roundup from last year on Youtube and see for yourself.

u/ColdDonut · 2 pointsr/sennheiser

GSP 600 is noise isolating, not cancelling. Essentially like cupping your ears with your hands. It can be upgraded with an amp/dac but TBH it's not going to make noticeable difference. These headphones aren't meant for their musicality.

The GSP 550 is self sufficient yes.

If you're wanting sound quality but the use of a mic then others suggest going with a mod mic type set up which attached onto the headphone.

I personally don't use that setup. I just have a mic on my desk and use my HD800S. It's all preference.

For better sound quality higher end gaming headsets aren't going to benefit you.

For me I have these because I realize it's not worth the money to me to go much higher.

u/aether_tech · 2 pointsr/HeadphoneAdvice

A closed-back headphone is a headphone that has no vents on the outside of the earcup to allow air in or out of the sound chamber of the headphone. This has a tendency to emphasize bass. Closed-back headphones will also offer noise-isolation (not to be confused with Active Noise Canceling.)

An open-back has opening(s) - a grill, slots, holes, mesh, etc... behind the driver on the outside of the cup that allows air in and out of the sound chamber. Open-back headphones tend to not have the bass power of similar closed-back headphones - but typically are better at treble. Open-back headphones don't offer any passive noise isolation, as they are pretty much 'open' to the air in all directions. Sound will get in, and some small sound will get out.

The other major difference is in soundstage. Most closed-back headphones have very small soundstage, while most open-back headphones have wider sound-stage than most closed-backs, with some exceptions.






In terms of pure comfort, the Cloud II /w its' velour earpads are extremely comfortable (as my opinion), however of the above listed headsets it's overall sound quality is the worst/or tied with the Alpha. All of those have exceptional build quality compared to other gaming headsets I've ever tested (that's an extensive list, including Razer, Logitech, Turtle Beach, Sennheiser, HyperX, Corsair, SteelSeries, and whatever else they sell at Best Buy and Microcenter.) Now, that's not saying the Cloud II has bad sound quality, it's top tier among headsets - but the Sennheiser offerings are technically better, and have somewhat better microphones.

HDD + SSD combo is definitely possible with that budget. Good gaming cpu, good gpu that is even a bit overkill for that resolution - but that means it will be valid for a longer time. I hope the case is the right way of fancy, there are alternatives of course. Good psu, good monitor, enough ram.

This build leaves enough of your budget to chose the keyboard and headset you/he wants. I'd consider as keyboard, nothing fancy is needed there, and as a headset. If you want to save there without losing sound quality: + is a great alternative to a headset.

u/uxgun · 2 pointsr/EliteDangerous

Regarding the comfort of the DT 770 I'll tell you that. The silver earpads did last me for less than a year, so much shorter than earpads in any other headphones I owned so far. A new set of earpads is £18 - £20 on Amazon. And I still think it is a great deal. They are so soft that they flatten over time much quicker but also they cushion your ears really well and even they wrap themselves precisely over the glasses creating kinda tunnels. For me they feel pretty much weightless when I'm wearing them.

Gamerzzzz Headsetzzz 😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣 – that's all I have to say about most of these. One of the few exceptions would be: They offer decent sound, decent microphone and they are £40.

No problems with the Antlion magnet. I was worrying that it would be interfering somehow with the magnets in the headphones but it looks like it's not the case.

The steelseries arctis headsets are really good. I got my arctis 7 for $140 here in Sweden where everything is stupidly overpriced. But it was a pretty good deal since they are $170 in most stores here. You said you were looking for $50-$100 so the arctis 3 and 5 are worth to check out.

The only complaint I have with my 7s is that the volume is super low when I use a wire (it’s wireless)

u/swollenbluebalz · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

I'm definitely not an audiophile, I actually rarely ever listen to music but I do spend 4-6hrs a day gaming or watching tv/movies. Before I did much research I fell into the trap of buying a gaming headset and bought the wireless Corsair Void RGB 7.1 surround sound. They're not bad especially for the price ($45 from a coworker) but lately I've been wanting to invest into something that gives me more of a competitive advantage in fps games with a better soundstage.

I bought the Open-Back Virtual 7.1 Sennheiser 373D which I've been using for the past week and have been liking. The open back experience wasn't a huge change for me but it's still a quality headset I believe. With blackfriday sales going on I've also been looking at the HyperX Cloud II's on sale for $65 and the Arctis 7's for $100. I know people say not to use virtual 7.1 but I really do find it helps in locating players who may be above or below you in a building.

Alternatively, I just recently discovered modmic which opens up the possibility for more audiophile headphones since I was against a desktop mic before and was considering trying out Beardynamic DT990 or a nicer pair of open-back Sennheiser like the HD6xx or similar.

the kingston hyperx cloud is a pretty new headset but was made with Qpad, and is very well reviewed. the Sennheiser PC 250 also just fits under that budget, and is a solid headset to use for commentary etc. (the PC 360 is more popular, but also a lot more expensive).

I'm obviously abliged to say that if I were you I would get an antlion modmic and something like an ATH m50

u/speerk25 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Sennheiser PC350 Headset. It's $130, so $20 over what you said was optimal...but the sound quality will likely blow away most other headsets at similar pricing since Amazon has it marked down.

Avoid Astro (mixamp is good, headset bundled with it is mediocre), Tritton, Sharkoon and Razer, what you get for your money isn't worth it. Steelseries and Logitech are decent at low-end prices, but Sennheiser and Audio-Technica I'd rate the highest for quality for the money.

  • Budget: $300
  • Source: Going to be purchasing a Fiio E10 to plug them into, then directly into my computers USB slot.
  • Isolation: Closed
  • Preferred Type: Fit over my ears
  • Past Headphones: Logitech g930

    Let me start out by saying that I haven't purchased the amp(fiio e10) yet because I had a question about it.

    I was thinking of either this: Sennheiser G4ME Zero or Sennheiser PC 350 Special Edition . I couldn't really find a difference between the two so I was looking for advice there.

    The second thing is that the fiio e10 only has 1 slot for headphones but no mic, so my other question is, would an adapter such as this work? Sennheiser PCV .

    I'm open to more suggestions of headphones but I would like the mic installed attached to them.

Hello all! So I am in the market for a new headset and after a lot it looks like Sennheiser is the best option. I was hoping for some recommendations on which one to buy. The ones I'm looking at are the Game One, Game Zero (not really sure what the difference is), PC 350SE, and PC 363D. These are not set in stone however and I am open to suggestions.

Budget: I would like to keep it at $200 but am willing to go up to 250 if the improvement justifies it.

Source: I have an Asus G73 SW laptop. I'm not sure exactly what the sound card is but the specs are this:
EAX Advanced HD 5.0
THX TruStudio
I also have the turtle beach DSS2 thing that I can use.

Isolation:Nothing too much. Just want to be able to not hear and not be heard by my brother 10 ft away.

Prefered type: Over the ear

Tonal Balance: Don't really know, overall balanced I guess?

Past Headphones: Currently wearing Turtlebeach X12's. Tried the steelseries elite but after 4 different headsets breaking I gave up on them.

Prefered Music: Mix of everything really, nothing too out there. I usually play games like the total war series and Warthunder. Also I usually listen to history podcasts if that helps.

I ordered the HT | OMEGA eClaro and it should be here this week.

I want clearer sound for conference calls and lectures. It will be used with a Sennheiser PC 350 SE headset although I am considering getting a Blue Microphones Snowball USB Microphone and either a Sennheiser HD25-1 II Closed-Back Headphones or Audio-Technica ATH-M50S...

u/verrukt · 1 pointr/buildapc

Here is a really good headset with more info here. They have an updated "G4ME" series headset that uses the exact same hardware with a new, shiny casing at like $70 more if you're into looks. Again, they both are the same headset except the G4ME series looks nicer.

I think that headset sounds best with an amp too so I'd get one for it.

u/TheJniac · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

The HD 280 is a closed headphone, avoid them if you do not need the noise isolation. See this guide for some awesome recommendations. If you NEED a headset, I personally used this until my dog chewed the cable. It sounds good, but it is closed, and the earpads were starting to show wear where it sat on my glasses.

u/live_mas_drink_dew · 1 pointr/xboxone

Check out these

Sennheiser is a great audio brand. I use a pair of their momentum's (Not gaming headphones) and it sounds amazing. I'm planning to get one of their gaming headsets soon though.

u/Ted_From_Accounting · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

You sold me on sennheiser's my friend and I got a seperate sound card, since i have an Nvidia green themed rig, i got the builder version of the card without the red housing so i can solder on my own greens LED's

here is what i ended up getting.

YOU get a steam game from my library for your help in this. send me a PM with your steam ID

u/n3gotiator · 1 pointr/wow

These are absolutely outstanding with crystal clear mic, VERY good clear sound delivery and comfort. They are now discontinued, used to retail for over $200. Can't recommend enough.

u/Sixstringsmash · 1 pointr/gaming

Razer makes some solid products, but I definitely would not recommend a Razer headphone. I personally use a pair of Astro A50's and they are an amazing headset for their price range. They feature 7.1 Surround sound, which is great for a lot of FPS games, are extremely comfortable(don't be fooled by their huge size, you can wear these bad boys for hours without feeling them), and have amazing sound quality for a pair of gaming headsets. Seriously I own a pair of Denon music maniac headsets which cost me almost double the amount of my A50's, and the A50's can hold up to my Denon's when watching TV and movies. These bad boys might seem a little pricey but trust me you are getting more than your bang for your buck with the A50. Here's an amazon link.

They also make a headset called the astro A40 which is exactly the same headset but wired, thus making it a little cheaper.

These are honestly amazing headphones for their price range, and I cannot recommend them enough.

I also figured I would mention that I know you said you prefer a USB headset, but the sound quality on a USB headset won't be as good as say, a digital output or headphone jack. On any good gaming headset, the USB should be reserved specifically for your microphone but not for the headphone in my opinion.

u/ArchinaTGL · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Personally I'd say something such as the Logitech G430 would do fine for anyone who isn't doing anything professional (Youtube, Twitch, ect.)

u/Robnroll · 1 pointr/Twitch
u/caedriel · 1 pointr/dubai
u/Sir_Deja_Vu · 1 pointr/blackops3 - This headset is slightly cheaper than PS4 Gold and its just as good in my opinion. A added bonus with this headset you get a USB portal soundcard so any other headsets you get in the future will work with the PS4.

u/colonostrich · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I have for a long time loved the Logitech G930.

For a LAN I'd go with G430 for $65. Since you probably wont be concerned with it being wireless and having the extra buttons/features of the G930.

It's very comfortable and sturdy, 7.1 Surround, great quality Mic. and I think they look pretty neat too.

u/Sofaboy90 · 1 pointr/hardware

im not saying logitech is crappy, im just saying logitech for me is no different than your razer, steelseries and other big names based on my experience, my experience is my experience which you cant really change. 1 shitty logitech product is all i need for never considering any other logitech product.

what i perhaps havent yet said is that there is no super realiable good gaming mice in this world, every single one out there youll find reviews of broken mouse wheels and double clicking issues, same with headsets, you wont find a headset without its faults and tahts much different to keybaords or headphones where you wont see the same flaws frequently mentioned in the 1 star reviews because they just arent that bad products.

just for clarification, i had a logitech g430 which is a headset of them, it wasnt even good from the beginning, it comes with "7,1 surround sound" and that USB thing that allows it. to use that surround sound youd need the driver for it, if you download the driver, youll have random issues on skype or teamspeak where your friends would jsut randomly not be hearable for a few seconds, ive done hours of research into it, no solution, logitech themselves couldnt give me anything useful, how does this happen? it turns out the only solution that worked for me was to uninstall the logitech driver AND not use the USB adapter which means i wasted 20€ because the lower model does not have that 7,1 surround sound which was the difference between them.

that wasnt even build quality related, that was just shitty implementation by logitech. the sound is decent imo, not that bad actually but as i said the micro slowly fell apart and then the whole left part broke apart and i had to keep it together with tape.

and that headset on amazon has 3.5 stars which basically means awful. in fact looking at the reviews right now, MANY people are having that issue with the broken parts, some included pictures, look yourself

u/MrVice · 1 pointr/gaming

Ended up going for the Logitech G430 Surround Sound Gaming Headset.

Will be sure to give my thoughts on the product when I get it.

My friend has a g230 and tbh i think its just a shit headset, not great mic quality. I had a G430 for a few years and loved it. Try and return the G230 and you can get the G430s for the same price.

u/YungGogu · 1 pointr/PUBATTLEGROUNDS

Is it this one?

Then it´s the same that I have. I had an extremely hard time to hear footsteps with this headset.
Invested about 120 € and got myself said Hyperx Cloud Flight and now I can hear a thousand times better than before. The difference is literally night and day. And no, I´m not getting paid to advertise Hyperx xD

u/ItsKieronHere · 1 pointr/GlobalOffensive

Can anybody recommend a good binaural headset for no more than £50 ($76 / €63).
So far I've spotted this but would like your opinions on if this is good enough or if you know of any others that would be better

u/Gswansso · 1 pointr/xboxone

It's not a "headset", but I use a pair of skullcandy earbuds with the in-line mic. I also have a cheap headset I bought off of amazon, it gets the job done, but it's a bit light on padding in the headband, sounds fine and I haven't had any issues with the mic

The link to the one I have is below,

u/SnakesOnAShip · 1 pointr/letsplay

Something like this could work. Just look around on Amazon, or wherever you prefer. Just be sure to check the reviews first to make sure there is no big problems with them first.

u/LBraden · 1 pointr/pics

Seriously, I bought the Red ones (since it matches the rest of my cheap build) and the only problem I have had is catching the volume control on my arm rest when I move from time to time

u/The_Reaper95 · 1 pointr/gaming

You may not have a high opinion of Turtle Beach headsets but have you even had one? Because I have, I've had 2, after one broke in an accident I bought the same headset.. Because it's cheap, simple very good quality. It's top notch for a starter headset for anyone.

The Turtle Beach PX21 if you can find it anywhere cheap.

But if you insist no Turtle beach, and under 50 USD.

Then fine, here is the cheapest headset I found which just happens to be the best quality based on reviews:

It's a cheap, no brand headset for less than $20. 228 Five Star Reviews.

u/Lurk_Noe_Moar · 1 pointr/gadgets

that's the one I use. It's of course not amazing but I game constantly with it and haven't had any issues with sound quality. Can be a little tight around the ears though.

Here's one that's a bit more but is bigger around the ears.

u/HyperVideoGames · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Nice 15 dollar headphones.

I'm actually curious though are those any good?

u/_THAT_GUY__ · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

if you can go up to $60 this is the the best headset i have ever used for gaming. (with the exception of the more expensive version of it that sound the same, they just have more features).

If you can't then this is one of the higher rating budget headsets on amazon. But at that pricepoint I cannot promise anything

u/pureparadise · 1 pointr/buildapc
u/Bones_Airstrike · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

I used the Sades SA-708 for about a year. It has adequate sound, and the mic is good enough. For the $15 price tag, this thing is hard to beat. It isn't perfect, and not the most comfortable thing I ever wore, but again, for $15, it is a diamond in the rough.

u/smartalec733 · 1 pointr/PS3

I have a pair of turtle beach headphones that I use. It comes with the usb to audio line port adapter. From there you plug in the actual headset. Another option would be to plug in an aux cable to the adapter which could then send sound to speakers or even the microphone port of your computer. (I use this method whenever I play through my computer speakers)

Link below

u/doublechris · 1 pointr/DotA2

I use the Turtle Beach PX22. Super comfortable when wearing for a long time, great sound, great mic quality, and works with my PS3 as well. Also, pretty damn cheap as far as Turtle Beach goes.

u/meccano300 · 1 pointr/headphones

I'm going to get either the AD900x, HD598, or the Q701 for gaming and music (Leaning towards the Q701s). With whatever i choose i will also probably be getting the Fiio E10K. Now the main part i'm asking about is that i'm coming from a Turtle Beach PX22 headset. The inline amplifier on this i LOVE. As you can see in these pictures, the amplifier features bass and treble adjustment, game volume and chat volume are separate and independently adjustable, I can hear my own voice as i speak, and i can play music into the auxiliary port in it. So i'm wondering if it would be wise to setup all this in a way to integrate both this amp and the E10K. My current idea is to plug the E10K into the computer, then the PX22 amp into the E10K and obviously the headphones into the PX22 amp. So will this setup work? if not, is there any amp that offers a lot of the features the PX22 amp does? Thank you

u/skibbles9 · 1 pointr/Rainbow6

How much are you looking to spend? Really anything will be a nice upgrade from standalone speakers. I'm using a cheap Turtle Beach PX22 headset for the PC. 3 years old still works no problem. I'm able to pinpoint locations easily, even if they are above or below me! A massive advantage.
I'm sure someone will hop on and bash Turtle Beach and that's fine, I have had crappy sets from them as well. However... I have Nothing but good things to say about the PX22. :) I hope this helps!
amazon link

u/theLoveGiant · 1 pointr/buildapc

I like the Turtle Beach PX22. It's universal and comes with an amp extension. It can use a regular audio jack or usd depending on what you need. It's 20 dollars off on amazon right now. I have it and haven't had any complaints. It's obviously not the best on the market but it's price to quality ratio is very good in my opinion.

u/The_Chicken_Biscuit · 1 pointr/xboxone

If you're using solely for gaming, get the A50s. They are far and beyond above the rest. If you want it for gaming and to take around listening to music away from home, get the QC35s.

Here are the A50s I have for only $119.

Since I got mine they've made an updated version specifically for he Xbox One which run around $299. But the 1st version works perfectly. The ones I have can't connect via bluetooth to my phone to listen to music though. Not sure if they included that in the newest version.

The QC35s are great for music listening or watching movies on a laptop/tablet.

Whatever you do, just don't get the 800x.

u/Captchronik17 · 1 pointr/xboxone
u/MuscularSquirreI · 1 pointr/xboxone little orange box with "exclusive offer $20 off". The price isn't updated until the final purchase review

u/ColinsDaBomb · 1 pointr/xboxone

Ya I got mine and they are a dream. It works with every console, PC, PS4, PS3, XB1 and XB360 (I don't know about Wii, but I doubt you are getting them for that). The mic sounds like a dream from what my friends say and the sound quality is amazing. There is even a special mode you can put the headset in to make games like COD easier because it makes footsteps louder. You can even have it connected to the console and PC at the same time, all you have to do is plug the optical cable into the console to get the sound how you normally would and then plug the USB power cable into your PC instead of the console. You get sound from your PC and console and you can change the levels by pressing the buttons on the headset. I usually do it so I can talk to my friends on Skype, but you can do it to listen to music or whatever you want. If you aren't rolling in money then you can get a refurbished pair for $100 less (It's refurbished by Astros themselves so it's good). If you have any other questions I be happy to help, I have nothing else to do.

Edit: The first refurbished pair I got didn't work, so I just sent them back and they sent me another pair in 5 days and they work great.

u/shepx13 · 1 pointr/FireteamOne
u/NYCharlie212 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Have these. Amazon had a sale on them a while ago and you can get them refurbished in the US for $200. I absolutely love them and the best part is I can still talk on skype with them while walking around the house. (Forgive me GabeN, it works with PC even though it says XB360)

u/Bdub421 · 1 pointr/xboxone

I have A50's and there extremely easy to use with my PC. There also only $200 refurbished.

u/Clyq · 1 pointr/GlobalOffensive

I would hold off on buying the FK. If the FK1 is too big then wait for the FK2 which should be smaller whenever it comes out.

Do yourself a favor and invest more into your headset. Music is a wonderful thing and you'll be amazed at how often you will rediscover new components to your favorite songs. You really do hear things that you've never quite noticed before. As a headset my highest recommendation goes to Audio Technica's ATH-ADG1. If $100 is your maximum, I would go for either of these:

Westone UM Pro10
Shure SE215-K
*Creative Aurvana Live

The last being my last resort for you. Good luck.

u/thurst0n · 1 pointr/headphones
  • Budget: $200 preferred ($300-350 if it's significantly better for price/performance)

  • Location: US

  • Source: PC w/ ALC889 and very rarely potentially my Yamaha RX V765

  • Isolation: None (Home use only)

  • Preferred Type: Circumaural - Full-Sized Over Ear (OPEN)

  • Preferred Tonal Balance: overall balanced

  • Past Headphones: Steelseries Siberia V2 (With USB Vitual 7.1)

  • Preferred Music: Gaming and music - I seriously listen to everything except dubstep unless someone on twitch is streaming it :P - I generally listen to hip hop and rock, but also enjoy classical and other easy listening.

    Background/My Thoughts

    I generally prefer to invest slightly more in my things for better quality and longevity. I'd happily invest more in things if I knew it was more likely to last or if the quality is significantly higher for the cost.

    The left speaker in my siberia just stopped working. I am very close to grabbing the Sennheiser G4ME ONE's used from Amazon because I have a $50 gift card waiting to be used and I'm a sucker for great price/performance.

    I figure either $200 for a headset OR $300-$350 for Headphones + whatever else.

    Option 1: Headset w/ Mic

    I don't necessarily need a headset w/built in mic, I'm aware of the modmic option, but if I'm not mistaken the G4ME ONE essentially an HD 558 just with the added microphone which will be very nice for me due to how much I'm on vent/Teamspeak when I game. I don't see the point in investing much more than 150-200 for an all-in-one because as I understand the quality doesn't go much higher from here anyways.. so to get more quality I'd look at option 2 and by that point it seems to be very costly to compete with the HD 558. And since I can get the ONE used for 150-50=$100 that seems like a great option.

    Option 2: Headphone + Soundcard OR DAC/AMP + ModMic

    Unless someone knows something that I don't, this is where I'd be spending more than the $200, and hopefully only if it's actually going to be 50-100% better. I considered the AT-ADG1's in option 1 above, but I don't believe they offer $100 more in value over the G4ME ONE (White/red new is $200)- please correct me if I am wrong.

    Here are of the products I considered for option 2:

  • HD 598
  • DT 990
  • AKG Q701 (Or K701 - but I like the Q design)

    I am assuming I'll need to add another 100-200 on top of the headphone to drive them.

    If there are any options that let me gradually upgrade/add on the DAC/Amp I'd consider that, but my impression is that certain headphones need to be driven properly from day 1. I realize that any headphones, even the G4ME ONE would benefit from a better amp or soundcard, but if I go for them then I don't plan to get another soundcard or external DAC/AMP anytime soon.

    Any advice/thoughts on this or anything else would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for the wall of text. :D
u/birddog_999 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

With a $300 budget there is no question. The ATH-ADG1 is way better than anything else you can buy.

u/SirHitler · 1 pointr/headphones

For the gaming headset experience, top reccomendations go to this bad boy. However, headphones that emulate speakers are hard to come by. The Sennheiser HD600 or HD650 with an OTL amp comes to mind as a fantastic bang-for-buck combo, you'd just need to find an ODAC or other DAC to use it with.

Other headphones known for emulating speakers are much more expensive. Take, for example, the Audeze LCD-X, which people have said are equivalent to a $50,000 speaker setup in a specially tuned room. Or, the Sennheiser HD800, known for being the most detailed headphone in existence next to the goddamn Stax SR-009. There's a lot out there, but you can't go wrong with the Senn HD600.

u/DaveFalcon73 · 1 pointr/xboxone

Yes, but you need the Turtle Beach Advanced Controller Plus. You won't get microphone though. Personally I went with the (a lot more expensive) version of the ATH-ADG1, well worth it but they are a lot of money.

u/LifelongCaboose · 1 pointr/Headsets

The HX66 are probably cheaper but that's not a good thing also what country you from so I can look for links where you can order from.

But here are some Links for Amazon USA I also included some amazing headsets from audio Techinca

u/djzeroshi · 1 pointr/headphones

Its done when the audio is recorded. What a headphone's soundstage refers to is the ability of said headphones to 'reproduce' the sound in the correct recorded positioning. You don't need any gimmic programs like dolby headphone or virtual surround sound. These programs are for headphones that suck at positional audio and have very little soundstage.

The AD700X/900X and its closed-back brother are very popular with gamers because of its accurate positional much so that Audio Technica has made a premium gamer headset based on the platform. Its called the ADG1. Its about double the price though, but it comes with a usb DAC and the microphone is pretty damn good for a 'gaming' oriented headset.

u/RegularWhiteShark · 1 pointr/gaming

I bought pre-built. This is my PC. It was £999.99, £11.75 for delivery and £202.35 VAT for a grand total of £1214.09.

My keyboard, which was more expensive when I bought it.

My mouse.

My monitor.

My headset.

I do not feel I overpaid at all. My computer is as capable as I thought it would be when I purchased it. Bit miffed at the drop in price of the keyboard, but I have had mine for nearly a year.

u/t4tris · 1 pointr/simracing

If you need a mic, Sennheiser Game One, otherwise this cheap HD 599.

u/thebananabob · 1 pointr/headphones

Curent Setup - cheap mobo, sennheiser game ones with MusicBee audio player. Will build a new pc including a soundcard this or next year.

Just got into FLAC music and whatnot. Would like to step up on the sound quality. Also the Sennheiser Game Ones sometimes vibrate when playing deep bass notes wich is really annoying.

Preferred Headphones - I´d like over ear open back headphones. Only use them when sitting at my PC

Preferred music - Rock/Metal mostly

Preferred tone balance - i like a solid bass but i doesn´t have to be over the top. just looking for something that can do everything adequately.

What i´m currently looking at - Sennheiser 660S with an FiiO E10K

Country - Austria

Good idea? Bad idea? How much of an improvement am i looking at here?

Thanks ahead

u/Joneed · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

This is a premium quality headset that I highly recommend. The closed version (G4ME Zero) costs £199. I know it goes a bit over your budget but that's one very good option if you're looking for a good headset that's going to last.

If you can't afford that, HyperX Cloud II is a pretty good budget option too.

u/ChetBrmr · 1 pointr/DestinyTheGame

Do yourself a favor and buy this $15 headset instead of using the one that came with it.

If your controller has a 3.5mm jack built in, they should work right out of the box. Otherwise, you would need to buy the Xbox One Headset Adapter.

u/Poncho7285 · 1 pointr/xboxone

The Turtle Beach Z11 is currently $16 on Amazon.

I just ordered mine the other day, and it seems to work alright so far, for 16 bucks.

Another great budget headset is the [Polk Melee.] (

The melee is currently $34 in blue, if color doesn't matter to you. (other colors are more expensive, for whatever reason.)

The Z11's are open backed, while the Polk headphones are closed backed, if that is important to you.

Let me know if you'd like more information on either of those headsets, and good luck choosing!

u/cam94z28 · 1 pointr/PS4

Linked in the xboxone reddit. Doesn't seem like a bad deal....

Says they're "amplified" but the reviews say they work plugged directly to either XB/PS4 controller/headset adapter.

u/rgon786 · 1 pointr/xboxone

There's a thread on here for these on sale now. I picked up a pair myself. For 15 bucks it's a damn good deal. Ordered last night and will be here today it says apparently. Not wireless but yeah.

I use these, didn't cost a whole lot and work great with the 3.5mm port on the newer controllers.

u/Slizedew · 1 pointr/xboxone

I got these the other day and they seem to work pretty well. The cushion is like a cloth-foam, not the most comfortable but they sound terrific. Pretty good set for the price.

u/Valtieri · 1 pointr/OverwatchUniversity

You won't go wrong with Logitech, I have never had a bad experience with that brand, so echoing other posters here!

I personally am using the Corsair H2100 Wireless and have only good things to say about it as well.

u/darkenspirit · 1 pointr/gaming

I am very satisified with these. They are super comfortable, surround sound and the charge lasts 8+ hours. I had them on one day for over 12 hours and forgot they were on. The mic quality over skype apparently is amazing according to my friends. From what I can gather from my stream etc it sounds pretty good.

u/McSalterson · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Best Buy and Amazon have the Logitech G930 for $69.99 ($90 off list price) and the Corsair H2100 for $59.99 ($40 off list price) right now. Both are wireless and 7.1.

Wireless (and headsets in general) aren't ideal, but personally, I'm willing to trade some sound quality for the convenience.

u/kpanzer · 1 pointr/buildapc

You might want to look at Corsair's H2100 wireless headset.

And yes I am biased towards it because that's the one I use.

u/siegewolf · 1 pointr/MLPLounge

For 7.1 headphones the bass is pretty deep. For gaming? Footsteps are super amped. It makes it so much easier to hear people in CS GO. I'd put it on a 8/10 sound wise. Obviously you could get better sound for cheaper if you didn't want the wireless. Personally, there's nothing quite like continuing a conversation on skype while you make yourself a snack. I loathe the new color scheme and tramp stamp corsair wants to do. It sucks. Here's mine. and here's it with the new "gamer" logo. I should also mention the battery life is about 8ish hours. They can be on while charging if need be.

Overall, if you're looking for a decent pair of headphones to game and do some other stuff with....I'd recommend them. They are solidly built. Plus, they come with a great warranty through Corsair and Amazon has a fantastic return policy if you don't end up liking them. They lasted much longer than my Steelseries. I'll tell you that.

I mean I've got the 5.1 going via the home theater setup, but when I'm racing against others usually I'm on my Corsair H2100s anyway. I'd love to mount speakers to it and such, but I want to keep it light enough to drag into the corner when I'm not using it.

Now graphics on the other hand.... A guy at work has offered to lend me his Rift DK2 for a bit now that I've completed my rig, so I'll be excited to see how it compares to triple screens.

u/Zion2014 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Really good headset, i got mine before Corsair decided to make the 'gaming' brand. For a wireless headset though its amazing.

u/TheSexiestDinosaur · 1 pointr/headphones
u/DntLookAway · 1 pointr/gaming

Sorry this will be a lot of information, but when you're buying something that sits on your ears for hours at a time, you want something that feels good.

Newegg has the Gamecom 780 on sale right now for 28 bucks. They usually float around 50-60 bucks so it's a really good deal. The only problem with them is they're not very drop friendly as they're plastic. The audio and mic quality are amazing for the price though.

If wireless is more his speed a Corsair H2100 is in your price range or a Logitech G930. I just recently bought a Corsair VOID on sale for 95 bucks and it was the best decision I've made in a long time, best wireless headset I've used. (but normal price is about 120)


Gamecom 780 priced 27.99

Corsair H2100 priced 99.99

Logitech G930 priced 84.36

Corsair VOID wireless priced 129.99

Pro's and Cons:

Gamecom 780

  • Pro: One of the best gaming headsets in the $50 range.
  • Pro: Easy to setup software, buttons on headset are easy to reach and use
  • Con: Very prone to breaking, if they fall the wrong way, they're toast
  • Con: Wired, I belive a 6 foot cable. Very limiting in distance (if you buy one of these buy a USB extension as well)

    Corsair H2100

  • Pro: Very good entry wireless headset, clear mic audio and decent sound quality
  • Pro: Wireless so no cables in the way
  • Con: Battery life
  • Con: Distance is short before cutout

    Logitech G930

  • Pro: Easy to use and reliable
  • Pro: Good range on headset (longer than H2100 and roughly same as VOID)
  • Pro: Build quality is nice, audio quality is decent
  • Con: Wireless receivers die before the headset does (will start with randomly dropping connection)
  • Con: Mic gets white noise in it
  • Con: Not very loud/Charge doesn't last long

    Corsair VOID RGB

  • Pro: Strong build quality, clear mic, great battery life
  • Pro: Good quality audio, can go very loud, bass drivers are decent
  • Pro: Long range, Similar to G930
  • Con: Software interferes with some other programs currently, Corsair is working on a fix (The headset does not require the software, it is just used to control simulated surround sound and lighting)
  • Con: Feels loose on your head, the mesh fabric makes it slide against your hair
  • Con: Users have reported turning on/off the headset can sometimes put the headset into a failed mode, and require being plugged into the computer to fix (i have not experienced this and could have been fixed in a firmware update already)

i'm very happy with this corsair one but its not on that list.

also i paid closer to 60 for it

u/gutlessVADER · 1 pointr/headphones
  • Budget - Under $100 preferably, but if you find something that fits my requirements under $200 please post it.<br />
  • Source - Desktop (no sound card) and Macbook Pro
  • Requirements for Isolation - none
  • Preferred Type of Headphone - Full-sized
  • Preferred tonal balance - balanced or bass-heavy
  • Past headphones - I've been using a Plantronics Gamecom 780 for three years, and they have been fantastic. I can hear where people are coming from in games and all the music/shows/movies I listen to sound incredible.
  • Preferred Music - Nightcore. That's all I've been listening to lately, the fast tempo keeps me pumped while studying.

    The two biggest things I want are for it to be wireless and have a mic. I currently have my sights set on Corsair's H2100; all the reviews I've read say it is incredible for Battlefield 4 (which I have over 400 hours in) and reasonably comfortable. Their software appears to allow a high level of customization as well. Many customers have had problems with it, though, so if I purchase it I will go through Newegg since I have had a 100% success rate at returning defective products with a full refund and free shipping.

Corsair Gaming VOID USB RGB Gaming Headset - Carbon

u/Aseff · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I just bought the Corsair VOID USB headset with 7.1 surround sound and I am not sure if I have my settings correct.

Do I need to calibrate something on Windows 10 to get the surround sound settings correct? So far I've downloaded the Corsair Utility Engine and enabled surround sound, but I am not getting very good quality sound. I am trying to play Fallout 4 and Battlefield 4 and it seems like I enabled surround sound in the game's settings, but it feels like it is lacking some sound quality. Help please?

u/CapSierra · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

u/lMurphyMurphyl · 1 pointr/Twitch

It's all good don't worry! So I've streamed with this headset and it never lets me down!;amp;psc=1 It plugs directly into your USB slot on your PS4 and is great quality. It'll cost you about $80!

Secondly, if you navigate to party chat options, usually when you've created a party you can find it. Go to party settings, allow your voice to be shared, set to allow. And if you want your friends to be included in the broadcast they need to do the same.

That's pretty much it man!

Edit: Oh and as far as actually broadcasting, I think you can just hold down the PS button when playing a game a navigate over to "Broadcast."

I'm sorry, but what??

Unless you're thinking of a different brand

u/ssmahony · 1 pointr/GlobalOffensive

Yeah at northern arena they forced should have forced the players to use noise cancelling "3m earmuffs" (like these) which don't put out any audio. The only way to get audio would be to use earbuds. I know stewie2k uses generic Apple earbuds, however some pro's decide to go with higher end earbuds. Either way you don't really want to be using earbuds at home.

But if you are just asking about what headset to get for CS, the most common headset among pro's are the Senhizer's, if you are looking for something cheaper though Astro's, Hyper X Cloud II's , and Logitech G430's are also very popular.

I'm also going to take this opprotunity to point out that you shouldn't be using the default CS:GO sound settings, but you can read more about that here

u/JustSomeGoon · 1 pointr/xboxone
  1. It's Audio Technica

  2. The headset adapter was discontinued because it was a massive piece of shit that broke after a week and it wouldn't help you anyway because all it had was a 3.5 jack and volume controls. Your controller has the jack anyway.

  3. Not sure if a splitter will work but it's worth a try. If it doesn't work I love my HyperX but Astros are also popular.
u/Aim4thejuicebox · 1 pointr/headphones

Thanks for the info. So if I buy the PS4 A40's I can just plug the headset into the controller and the mix amp into my Xbox? I also saw that I can buy the PS4 headset (black) and the Xbox mix amp separately on Amazon but it seems fishy because no where else sells the headset alone so I am wondering if they really are Astros. Here is the link for the PS4 (black) headset;amp;qid=1451349170&amp;amp;sr=8-3&amp;amp;keywords=astro+a40+tr

u/Adjective_Pants · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

My Hyper X Cloud II just broke and I'm looking into getting a new headset. Are the Astro A40s good? I did research online and I saw some people recommend getting the mix amp as well. However, this makes them much more expensive, is there a real advantage to having it?

u/DriveByStoning · 1 pointr/buildapc

I have these, but you may want something similar with an open back.

I have a big head and they fit nice. My ears are fine after marathon sessions.

u/xXiDominateXx · 1 pointr/buildapc

I think you should get the 1070. As for headphones I would recommend getting either the HyperX Cloud 2 (I have these headphones and love them), the Sennheiser GSP 300, the Sennheiser GAME ZERO or Sennheiser GAME ONE (the game zero is closed back and the game one is open back).

u/Kennyjive · 1 pointr/xboxone

Sennheiser GSP302. $82. Check anywhere and you'll find these to be the best budget headset available.

It's the same model as the GSP 300/301/303. The number designates the different color.

u/pyrox115 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace
u/Regefade · 1 pointr/Gaming_Headsets

u/alecbenzer · 1 pointr/buildapc

How tight is the $70? The Sennheiser GSP 300 might be worth looking into for $96. Otherwise, a HyperX Cloud is probably your best bet like others are saying.

u/Mustang351c · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I would get this and a TRRS Splitter.

This has an inline mic if that is a problem.

Here are 2 more options that are from the same company that don't fall victim (to the same extent) to the gaming stereotype as others. 1 2

u/Floofyboy · 1 pointr/Gaming_Headsets

Not sure for other countries, but in Canada GSP300 already dropped:;amp;qid=1574876604&amp;amp;sr=8-3

So its better choice than Mh751 ?

u/Blais_Of_Glory · 1 pointr/BudgetAudiophile

For speakers, if space is an issue, you should get the Micca MB42X then, as they're much smaller than the JBL LSR305s. Or you could even just get the Micca MB42. I have the JBL LSR305s and a fairly small desk and they fit. I have a 23-inch monitor and one speaker on each side of the monitor. You may also want to get a DAC for your speakers, like the Schiit Modi 2 / (Amazon link) or a DAC/amp combo, like the Schiit Fulla / (Amazon link) or FiiO E10K (Amazon link) or AudioQuest - DragonFly (Amazon link).

For headphones/headsets, you have many choices. If you are a gamer, you should check out Sennheiser's gaming headsets. If you don't plan on gaming and just want to listen to music, check out the Sennheiser HD series. They can be found much cheaper on Amazon, eBay, or other various retailers. I personally have the Sennheiser PC363D headset for gaming and unfortunately paid about $240 for them, not even 6 months ago. Right after I bought them, the price on Amazon dropped dramatically, to around $130. I just checked on Amazon and now they're back up to around $219, but if you watch them, they will probably drop again like they did before. Or you can check on eBay. Sennheiser does have cheaper models though (all of these are around $150 or less) like the brand new Sennheiser GSP300 / (Amazon link), Sennheiser GSP350 / (Amazon link), or the Sennheiser GAME ONE / (Amazon link). I have tried a few different brands and Sennheiser is my favorite for performance. I also have the Sennheiser HD 598 SE / (Amazon link) for listening to music and the Sennheiser RS120 II wireless headphones (Sennheiser RS 120 (older model) (Amazon link)) for my TV and got them for my parents too. If you live in a place where you can't have your TV or music too loud, the wireless headphones are very helpful. Overall, I use the Sennheiser PC 363D headset the most and it sounds awesome. If you're a gamer, get a gaming headset, or if you just listen to music, the HD series are great too.

These ones are great - way more comfortable. I'd say the sound quality in the PS gold was better and I honestly can tell the difference without 7.1 sound, but I have 0 regrets so far.

u/shiftyshiftaroo · 1 pointr/gaming

Steelseries Arctis 5 works really well for me. The cable comes with a USB extension and a regular headphone jack extension that you can easily switch between. They're really comfortable and sound good. The mic is also good at only picking up your voice. My husband and I game in the same room with these headsets, about 6 feet away from each other, and we almost never trigger each other's mics.

u/Brandinisnor3s · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

The Steelseries Arctis 5 is a good minimalistic one with two programable ring rgb lights. The mic can be tucked inside the earpieces so that it doent hang out and it is wired for only 100 dollars

Edit: as for heaphones i assume you mean a headset

u/indianjones564 · 1 pointr/headphones

Budget - $100-$150 USD

Source - I'll be using this with my laptop. I don't intend to invest in an amp. I'm not an audiophile, but I do like crisp audio.

Requirements for Isolation - The more isolation, the better. I don't necessarily need complete noise blocking, but I will be wearing these while I study in college. It's become a habit over the years to leave my headphones on while sitting in front of my laptop reading.

Will you be using these Headphones in Public? - I will almost never use these in public. I'm not too picky about the aesthetics, but I don't want something too gaudy.

Preferred Type of Headphone - Not entirely sure, but I've really liked the HyperX Cloud IIs since they fit around my ears. I can leave them on all day and not feel uncomfortable. I've also had the Tracks Air Wireless headphones and they were comfy, but the leathery feeling got slightly uncomfortable if I wore them for long periods of time. I didn't really realize it until I switched to the Cloud IIs. I'm open to all types of headphones in this category.

Preferred tonal balance - I'm not an audiophile. I think I need a fairly balanced soundstage (is that the right term?). Bass is important since it feels like a lot of songs I listen to lean towards that side.

Past headphones - Currently using the Cloud IIs. I love the quality of the headset and its audio is great. It blocks out noise decently and feels comfortable since it completely covers my ears. They're a bit heavy, but that is a non-factor in my next headset purchase. The bass isn't bad, but I feel like it doesn't pop.

I've also used the Sol Republic Tracks Air Wireless headset which was great. I picked up the Cloud IIs because I wanted a headset with a mic for voice chat. Unfortunately, the Cloud IIs, while being great in every other aspect, don't have good mics. No matter what I do the mic volume can't be raised on my end and I'm always too quiet for my friends to hear. That is a dealbreaker since the whole point was to get a headset with great audio and a clear mic.

Preferred Music - Pretty big mix of genres, but I tend to stick to vocal-based pop and chillstep. That being said, my interests change pretty often and I haven't been listening to a ton of music lately. This headset is mainly geared towards gaming. So if there's a good headset that can provide true 7.1 surround sounds or something that would be great. The Cloud IIs have this fake Surround Sound that is pretty gimmicky.

What would you like to improve on from your set-up - I'm looking for a headset that has good audio. I'm not expecting amazing since I'm going for a mid-range headset with my budget, but audio is important. The more noise isolation, the better. Wireless is a plus, but I have no problem with wired if wireless heavily detracts from audio quality. I will primarily be using this for gaming and voice chat with some music thrown in there. The voice chat is actually the reason

Other notes - I've mentioned this several times above, but I'll compile what I'm looking for here: I'm looking for a headset with good audio quality across the board. Maybe with slight emphasis on the lower range? True 7.1 Surround Sound for gaming is nice, but not required. The more noise isolation, the better. So probably not an open back headset. This is where I might be asking in the wrong place, but I'm looking for a headset with a good mic as well. I don't think I want to get a clip-on mic even though it would be the logical thing to do. However, if you think I should just keep the Cloud IIs and buy a clip-on mic or another mic, I'm open to suggestions. I'm pretty flexible and I'm willing to listen. Again, not sure if this is the right place to ask. I'm currently looking into the Steelseries Arctis [5] ( or [7] ( Any opinions on these would be appreciated as well. Thanks in advance and please let me know if you need any more info!

u/METL_Master · 1 pointr/xboxone
u/Aperture_TestSubject · 1 pointr/xboxone

I’ve been using the LucidSound LS35X for about 2 months now. I really like them! The sound quality is good and they actually get pretty loud. My only real complaint is being able to get the sweet spot on the overall sound and the chat/game mixer can be a bit finicky.

Muting is just hitting the right earcup button and the mic even has a red light so you know you’re muted, and you can mute game and chat audio quick by hitting the left earcup button. Sound quality is solid on the mic, and have never heard any complaints from my gaming buddies. Any other questions just let me know.

u/xBassDropYETIx · 1 pointr/xboxone

True. The 420x+ are much more affordable. I say probably after about 3-4 hours. If you wear glasses though forget about it. There is an officially xbox licensed true wireless headset coming out during the Holidays this year.

u/scottymoze · 1 pointr/xboxone

Turtle Beach 420x and 420x+ are nice. I would look for prices closer to $120 or less before buying, unless you're in a pinch. Use for Amazon price history.

Older model:

Newer model (adds "Superhuman Hearing," up to you if you want/need this):



Fully wireless, no cables to the controller

Long battery life

Reliable so far (5+ friends have them, zero issues)

Clear voice chat (me, and all friends with them sound great)

Comfy (although this is preference)



Price ($100-150)

Have to charge them (I charge nightly, although once in a while miss a charge and still OK the next day)

Only stereo sound (however you can still hear stuff "behind" you regardless, if that makes sense)

Takes up a USB port w/ wireless receiver

USB dongle is somewhat bright and blinks while not connected, can be distracting if you plug into a font port and your Xbox is in view


There are also two new headsets incoming that I'm watching - both are fully wireless but also surround.

Supposedly this companies headsets have better quality sound:;amp;qid=1506564838&amp;amp;sr=8-1&amp;amp;keywords=lucidsound+ls35x
They're completely wireless, don't use a transmitter like the new TB's, and are licensed by Microsoft. The TB's hub I think is overrated, I never used it on my Stealth 500X's.

I use these: Corsair HS60


I've had them since June of last year and they're still in perfect condition after almost every weekend use. You can detach the mic so it can look like regular headsets and the mic is crystal clear according to my friends. Been using it on the PS4, Switch, Vita, 3ds and my phone. You can adjust the volume on the headset itself and mute the mic if you need to with a touch of a button. There is a wireless version that claims to have 7.1 surround but that's only on PC with the use of a dongle. This is the first headset I've used that didn't bother my big head playing hours upon hours.

I have the Corsair HS50 wired and it's pretty nice, especially for $50. The HS60 has good reviews as well, though it's essentially the same as the HS50 with a USB adapter that allows for better surround on PC. If you don't plan on using them on PC, I'd stick with the HS50.

u/RAGEMOOSE · 1 pointr/xboxone

I have the Corsair HS50's. Great construction and very comfortable with not that bad of a price tag either.

u/AzZzeron · 1 pointr/EscapefromTarkov

Very nice skill you got there man,and you play really cautious, i wouldnt notice that sound and wouldve been dead. I use CORSAIR HS50 - Stereo Gaming Headset they are open type aswell. What does soundcard do for you? Increases specific sounds or all total? What do you think about theory of playing without headphones and getting Perception to crown level? Ive heard from players who play without headphones that it levels up by playing without them and not just by looting. It also looks wrong on how your sound radius and all that levels up from looting. Each time i tried it, i died to bullshit sound, and facing enemy sideways, and i couldnt kept doing it. There are situations where sound is complete bullshit, spinning around or only your head helps but not allways. Thats why many downvoted you.

I have the console edition for my Xbox, I got it on sale for like 35-40 dollars or something a little ago, and for my PC I have the Arctis 7 wireless and love them, but I’m biased because I love how these feel on the head compared to other headsets

u/Speedwizard106 · 1 pointr/HeadphoneAdvice

Also, these or the Arctis 7?

u/Shane1200 · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

If anyone is wondering, this is the 2019 Edition. It goes for $150 on Amazon.

u/chunks242 · 1 pointr/gaming

I would personally go for the steelseries headsets. They're a quality durable brand that are worth the investment.

Cooler Master MH-752 MH752 Gaming Headset with Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound, Plush Earcups, and Omni-Directional Boom Mic

Highly recommended. Closed back with great audio for footsteps. Detachable mic. Comfortable as hell.

Philips SHP9500 HiFi Precision Stereo Over-Ear Headphones (Black)

Great sound for the price. Open back without mic. Very comfortable as well.

u/Brendansports · 1 pointr/razer

Cooler master is slept on, As a user of the Kraken Pro V2, 7.1 V2, Tournament edition, and steelseries arctis3. I recommend the

MH752, mic and sound quality of the 7.1V2 but you dont look like a wierdo with rgb.

Cool Master MH752. Comfortable, good price. Detachable mic, closed back, balanced sound. They won’t disappoint.

Logitech G430

7.1 Surround Sound.

So durable that it lasts months after the warranty expired.

Used ones starting at 30 Euro. 45 Refurbished

u/HamSambo · 0 pointsr/xboxone

I use the Logitech G430.

Initially uncomfortable, they eventually mould to the shape of your head and become very comfortable. Great surround sound and also usable on PC via USB. Only caveat is the Y Splitter required for them to work via your 3.5mm controller.

u/Erntefrisch · 0 pointsr/de

Logitech G430. Bei mir ist zwar schon ein Bügel gebrochen, aber es ist mir in den 2 Jahren uach dutzende mal hingefallen. Trotzdem super Teil. Ist sogar gerade im Angebot. Mit 50€ wirst du da gut bedient.

u/CrzyJek · 0 pointsr/DestinyTheGame

You could save 25¢ a day for a month and get decent mic/headset.

Edit: For all you downvoting dickbags.





Tons more around that price range.

Or you could save a WHOPPING 50¢ a day and get $15.99

Point is, having no mic is no excuse. A 12 year old could save enough for anything that could do the job for chatting on a ps4

u/HalEmmerich14112 · 0 pointsr/gaming

my Turtle Beach PX22 are my favorite , plugs right into my tv headset jack and USB for power , has a AUX line in for phone calls and music. heres an amazon link .;amp;qid=1417571756&amp;amp;sr=8-4&amp;amp;keywords=turtle+beach

u/nophantomlimbs · 0 pointsr/Competitiveoverwatch

i noticed atmos was muddy as well, im happy with the strix soar, but now im looking into some of they 7.1 headsets too, since i spent so much on this set up, I might be able to get something like this and save about $100.;amp;keywords=sennheiser%20pc&amp;amp;qid=1465281686&amp;amp;ref_=sr_1_1&amp;amp;sr=8-1

or maybe this

u/Whunter100 · 0 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I use an Astro A40 which you can find here:;amp;ie=UTF8&amp;amp;qid=1469896055&amp;amp;sr=1-2&amp;amp;keywords=astro+a40
Quality for listening to music, watching videos, and gaming.
If you wanted something cheaper I recommend Razer Krakens;amp;ie=UTF8&amp;amp;qid=1469896124&amp;amp;sr=1-1&amp;amp;keywords=razer+kraken which you can get in usb or audio jacks. The astros are just audio jacks btw.

Sennheiser GAME ONE Black $130 - back ordered 2-4 weeks

Sennheiser GAME ONE White $150

Kingston HyperX Cloud II - $98

Kingston HyperX Revolver - $108

Astro A40 - $150

Of those I'm partial to the Sennheiser GAME ONE's, and the Astro A40. I've used exclusively Sennheiser headphones for the last 7 years and have loved them. The GAME ONE's are open back though so you will get a little less bass but a more open sounding sound stage. The Sennheisers are also far better for music than anything from Kingston, Razer, Logitech, or SteelSeries. Also in my experience, Sennheiser headphones are always quite comfortable. The mic quality is also very good on the GAME ONE.

The Astro A40's are just really good all around. Good sound quality, good mic quality, good overall build quality. Very solid option around the $150 range.

If it were me buying it, I would go with the Sennheiser GAME ONE, my second choice would definitely be the Astro A40's though. The SteelSeries Siberia 350 hasn't been getting the best reviews from actual users. I don't put as much stock into professional reviews because they never account for longevity of the device and are based more on technical specs than actual real world use.

It really depends on what your priorities are though. If you're concerned more with the sound quality, the Sennheisers or Astro A40's are the way to go. If you're more interested in extra features, some of the other brands like Corsair, Logitech, and SteelSeries will have some other features (like RGB lighting for example).

u/LoadedGull · 0 pointsr/Gaming_Headsets

These are wireless for Xbox one, available for pre order on to be released March 31st.

u/In_Dying_Arms · 0 pointsr/discordapp

Name a single headset you can buy new today that "sounds like ass."

I'll give one example. The Corsair HS50 is $50 right now and in this video for example he sounds pretty good.

You'd have to buy a $10 Chinese knockoff and even then it probably wouldn't be that terrible.

u/ImAnOlogist · 0 pointsr/PS4

There are a ton of free games I'm sure he'll love, Fortnite, Warframe, Trove.

It comes with an HDMI cable. Maybe this headset would be good, i know its quality and decently priced.

u/allnamestakenffs · -1 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I use these, first time i bought 7.1s and they are devine, the pads are soft not leather so no sweaty head

u/xjman349 · -1 pointsr/hardwareswap

You’re right.
ASTRO Gaming A40 TR Gaming Headset for PC, Mac - Black

u/darklynx4 · -2 pointsr/buildapc

its a "gaming headset" not by sennheiser or audio technica, so that means its complete garbage lol

for $150 is by far the best thing you can probably buy. (unless you buy headphones and mic separate)

will require a sound card if you do not have the AC1150 audio codec on your motherboard built in audio (as the AC1150 is the only good integrated audio available)

without either of them, the mic and headphones will likely not sound very good.

u/sexyagentdingdong · -2 pointsr/PS3

please dont get a wireless bluetooth headset, it will sound like trash and you'll have a bad experience. i promise. get a twenty to forty dollar turtle beach headset. its a great way to start and one day move up to these bad boys

u/de_ezNutz · -2 pointsr/GlobalOffensive;amp;keywords=turtle%20beach%20z11&amp;amp;qid=1458810618&amp;amp;ref_=sr_1_1&amp;amp;sr=8-1

These are absolutely amazing for the price. Crystal clear mic quality and I haven't had any problems at all with the audio, it sounds fantastic. If you're looking for a budget mic, just get one of these, me and my friend have had the same pair for about 2 years now, they're sturdy af.

Edit: I had a pair of logitech g230's [40 dollar headset] before I got these, and I think they're absolutely shit compared to these.

u/BRUMB0 · -3 pointsr/HeadphoneAdvice

I’m not an expert but when I was looking for the same thing I bought these and have been very happy with them. Also ZeosPantera on YouTube should be able to help you. Hope this helped and good luck.
