Recommendations for good gaming headset...

Recommended Posts

The G35 is bad because if you have a sound card it will be obsolete, as USB headsets have their own "processor" built inside them and they use more the CPU more.

STAY AWAY FROM MEDUSA....... I had a set of NX5.1 and they were ok, but. In less than a year I started having issues. Sound would randomly cut out. Then the left front channel went out completely. After paying $115 to the door, I was a little mad. Mercon International said just box em up and send to the UK. Well UPS said $120 to ship!?!!?!!?!? USPS said $38. So I went with Uncle Sam. Well, they didn't make it. The Royal Postal service said I had to pay them too. ANother $30 something bucks. So to get them warrantied, i was going to have to pay almost full retail price to ship them back. They wouldn't lift a finger even when THEIR DEFECTIVE PRODUCT was at their border. SO I told them to get bent and send them back.

I now have a pair of the Sennheiser HD 280 pro and absolutely love them. I too have Creative Fatality and to let you know what I think of them, I used some zip ties, a audio cable, and the mic from them to "make" a headset. Works pretty darned good. Since the Sennheiser conversion for the 280's to a headset is like $169 for the mic and stuff to convert it. There is a Mic'd version of the 280's just have to look for it.

Yamaha RH-5Ma

 

Those are excellent gaming headphones. They aren't advertised as gaming headphones but they have great quality for gaming and whatever else could have anything to do with sound.

Do you have a sound card? Because I know when I got my Steelseries Siberia V2 without the sound card it didn't sound too much better than my Fatal1ty. But when I added my sound card things sounded waaaayyyy better! So yeah, I would recommend the Steelseries Siberia V2(Not USB version) and get a sound card with that. And after a while your hearing gets better/used to it and you get even better at games.(I get called a hacker because I can now pinpoint from where even silenced shots come from :))

I used to own the Sennheiser PC151 headset and it performed great. Had it for about 2 years, could have been longer but i was given a chance at Quakecon to exchange them for a different headset. The sound quality is really nice, an overall great experience. I also had no problems with the mic, maybe turning up the boost but that's it.

Thanks for the suggestions! I have a budget of $50 @ Newegg only... One of the main reasons I chose these headphones is because its USB and I'm able to do 7.1 surround sound since I don't have a gaming sound card.
