This might help a bit.


That post is exactly why i still keep tabs on Head-fi. They suck at answering questions but more than make up for it in their reviews.

... and daaaaaaaaaamn that guy has owned a crap load of headphones. Definitely the person to ask for differences in headphones. Shame he didn't put his Music score for those headphones as well.

That is essential what I did I gave up on trying to find a pair with and decent integrated mic after nothing seemed available to match the denon's response, and good sound quality.
So I am using my denon hp1000's plus an amp and a usb stick mic with a wind filter, and while a little messier solution than I hoped for prehaps I won't breat this mic as easily as the last few as it is less likely to hit the floor.
Thx. for all info
everyone

I would recommend getting the Razer Tiamat 7.1

This headset is AMAZING!

true 7.1 surround sound, great SOUND, crisp and clear, GREAT bass! and the microphone isnt too shabby either

GREAT BUY!

from what i have seen the fact that they have heaps of small, cheaper drivers in the headset made it so sound quality is poor, thats just from what i have read.

but apparently the positioning is good, as to be expected of 7.1 headphones
