Looking for a good headset

Greetings everyone,
I am looking for a good gaming headset. Please don't suggest separate microphone and separate headphones, it has to be headset. My budget for it is still changing, so if it wouldn't be too much bother, could you recommend something from each price range? I am mainly looking for great sound and good microphone for everyday music listening and talking over voip. Thank you for your help.

Re: Looking for a good headset

There's been a few threads on headsets, as well as plenty of headset reviews here on HH, but to sum things up here's a few recommendations from posters lately:

Corsair HS1A
Steelseries Siberia V2
Razer Megalodon
Sennheiser PC330
Steelseries 7H
Corsair Vengeance 1300
Asus Vulcan ANC
Astro A40
Razer Tiamat 7.1

That's a good run down of what you'll find recommended here in different price ranges from low to high $$. They all have their plus and minuses (some have ok noise cancellation, some are bass heavy, some expensive), so you'll have to do a bit more research on each to find one that fits you. I'm sure someone else on the forum will chime in sooner or later too.

Of note: stay away from Turtle Beach. I mentioned this in another thread HERE, "They may sound great, but they have the sh!tt!est build quality." It was true then, and is still true today.

Also, be sure to check out HH's audio review section HERE too.

Edit: removed the Astro A30. Don't know why, but I keep typing both models when I mean to type just the one.

Re: Looking for a good headset

My friend has Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 and it is amazing headset. I tested them for voip, skype, games and I could only say it is the best headset that I ever had on my head (I am not the one who tests PC peripherals, that is my opinion from my little experience).

Re: Looking for a good headset

I use the Razer Carcharias for...almost 2 years now IIRC. For gaming they are very good. Clear sound, extremely comfortable, mic good enough for VOIP.

Mind you I am having some issues with it, but it is 2 years old of 18 hour daily usage. The right and then the left "clip" that hold the headset at certain shape, have given up completely and I use cardboard to keep them in place on my head. The connections withing the external controls piece are problematic lately, losing partly or completely the sound from the right or left side. but nothing (so far) that a good hit of it on the desk won't fix.
I still fully suggest it for the reasons I mentioned earlier.

Re: Looking for a good headset

Thanks everyone for help, sorry I wasnt responding for quite some time, as it seems I will be able to get headset/headphones for 100 bucks or so, maybe I could go slightly over.

So far I am most tempted by the Razer Carcharias, Corsair Vengeance 1300 and Asus Vulcan ANC.

Also what about the quality of wireless headsets/headphones?

Re: Looking for a good headset

Razer Carcharias seems a good bet from those 3 but the SteelSeries Siberia v2 is also great in that price range.

Re: Looking for a good headset

I can't help if you need a headset meaning with attached microphone, but if you are interested mainly in bass and don't mind if it is a headphone (headset minus the mic), then all of SONY's studio headphones have strong bass performance and they are relatively cheap (cheaper than similar).

The question is, how much bass do you want exactly? Would you like -alot- of bass or just a good amount of bass?

Re: Looking for a good headset

Sorry to be reviving this thread, but I had to postpone buying that headset and now I am ready. My budget is 150 dollars (as in Siberia 2 Frost blue is slowly reaching the top). I am looking for good ratio of quality sound and microphone since I plan on streaming games with commentary for few friends and I would have want for them to have best sound possible of my voice...in certain means of course. Why I am asking again is, mainly, if there was any change in the three months and such. Or what headset would you recommend.

Re: Looking for a good headset

When I was browsing around last year I found that one of the most recommended headsets (after this silly expensive one that comes with an amp) was the Steelseries Siberia V2. I wasn't disappointed; great audio quality, enough bass to keep me pleased, light & comfy, good mic. Couldn't ask for more.

Re: Looking for a good headset

Personally, I've never seen the point in USB soundcards unless the onboard is dead, ancient or just plain inaccessible (broken port, for example). There are exceptions (equipment that costs 100s) but I've always been one for internal soundcards, onboard or otherwise.

I see, so there isnt any big difference between them? I should just pick? Its just I am kinda worried there might be difference in quality.

EDIT : And what about Steelseries 7H in comparison with any Siberia V2 model?

Re: Looking for a good headset

If comparing the onboard to a USB soundcard you'd probably end up with a negligible difference. I had a browse around for "USB vs onboard" and there seems to be no clear winner.
The disbenefit with USB headsets is that you'll need to have the headset plugged in prior to paying a game so that the soundcard is registered. Also, if you ever do decide to buy a new soundcard you can't take advantage using a USB connector.

As for Siberia vs 7H, couldn't say. I've only tried one.

Re: Looking for a good headset

External soundcard (from 50$) is always better than onboard soundcard !
Some people will hear the difference, if they have enough experience with sound.

Re: Looking for a good headset

Sorry, I don't have any experience with headsets, only headphones.

You may buy an external or internal soundcard, USB or PCI-Ex, to get more meat from sound. Buy an 3.5mm jack headset, not USB, because those with USB have integrated soundcard and is not something special.

Also, if the soundcard dies in the cable you've just lost your headset.

It's a small likelihood that the soundcard will die. It depends what he choose.

Re: Looking for a good headset

Well...I asked some of my friends that really knows something about headphones and headsets about Sennheiser PC 360 (impedance is 50 ohms) and they say that's a really good headset, but it won't sound on it's full potential connected into a integrated soundcard. So a good decision is to buy a discrete soundcard like Creative Sound Blaster Z (it has a 600 ohms amp).

I see, thank you for the tip, would you mind later asking him (if its not a trouble for you) if it is the best choice in that price range?
