Best headset for sound quility but also has a mic? - Page 4

post #31 of 39
I agree that there are much better headphones you can get for the same price. I heard bad things about the HS1A.

Because you can get actual headphones, built by people who have been building audio equipment for years, and aren't catering to gaming market but rather an audio market. Even in a review done by a computer/gaming website that does not focus on audio products, they clearly noted strong shortcomings in its performance. All signs point to bad.

I just read the review above from overclockers club. Funny how he used a gaming headset with a DAC, and never listed what "gaming" sound card he used.

Silliness like that is inexcusable.

I'm not going to recommend a surround headset if you're looking for the best sound quality, but I'm truly wondering if those saying they're "gimmicks" have actually ever tried one. They definitely have much better 3D positioning than standard stereo phones.

To answer the question, I'd probably recommend AD700s or a decent Sennheiserwith a decent sound card and a clip-on/desktop mic.

I would recommend a pair of these Denon cans. They are probably the most versatile headphones you can get. Would be great for gaming, movies, and any genre of music. If you decide to get a head phone amp or sound card, or something of the sort they will only keep getting better.

I own an array of high-quality, and production headphones.

5.1 and 7.1 for gaming is an absolute joke.

Even when producing, I can only really notice it on my HD800's (around $1400).

Any "gaming headset" that features 5.1 or 7.1 is a gimmick piece of garbage.

If you're going to pay a lot of money for a headset. Then for god sake, do it right.
