can't comment on the others apart form the fiio:
If you don't need a dac, look into the E11 - or if you want something more fun, go for the digizoid

Sorry I don't have this microphone I was just looking around for new microphone and this came up smile.gif Just open it and check for wires how those are connected green should be left and shield should be right of M1. I see that link does not work correctly. Just go that forum and search for "logitech low gain" and first result should be the right one.

If I can't resolve my own problem with microphone I'll probably buy this one and if it will have same problem as described ill open it up and take some pictures smile.gif

I need some feedback that the original guide was unable to assist me with.

I currently have a Creative X-Fi Titanium from 2007 as my current soundcard. I have this paired with the craptastic Razer Carcharias Gaming Headset and needless to say I am sick of it.

So, I am shopping around for a new high end headset, one that is preferably under $200. I use my headset for 60% music and 40% gaming. Can anyone reccommend a good headset that has a built in microphone that can meet my needs? FYI, the music I listen to is mostly electronic and sometimes I listen to the occassional rock song. As for games, I play all types except for racing. Any one care to make a reccomendation? Thanks!

As you guys might recall my AKG AGS White headset was damaged and did not work anymore. I bought it thanks to this beautiful guide made by Simca.

 

Since options are very limited in Turkey and the prices are twice, I had to get something here. I couldnt import anything becaus of the shipping costs and custom issues.

 

Anyhow I just purchased an Asus Vulcan headset.

 

It looks INCREDIBLE, but I wish it sounded at least good.

 

AKG AGS was a MUCH better headset than this. The quality of it was really great. The Asus Vulcan is mediocre at best. However I must admit that the ANC feature is incredibly neat.

 

Don't get me wrong guys I mean Asus Vulcan is probably still a great choice for the price range, I am not arguing that but AKG AGS costs less and performs better.

 

I sometimes hate that most technological gadgets are not available here in Turkey.

 

The explosions, the clarity everything was better in the AKG AGS.

 

I will be keeping my Asus Vulcan for sure but if you ever think of purchasing it, look elsewhere. there are better options.

 

Edit : Maybe I have to wait until the headset burns in. I wonder if thats the case for Asus Vulcan as well.

I would get the D1080 IV instead.

Thanks for the suggestion. I kind of like the white but the price isn't that much higher and it definitely seems like a step up

I figured it out thanks. Be doing the fix tonight, if it works you will have saved me quite a bit of money, and get some rep for it as well. :)

Ok. My dad helped with the soldering and after messing with it some more I almost got it to work. Moosed the cable and it worked well for two seconds. Then the wire broke and after that the solder pad pushed out. Now it looks terrible and there is almost a zero chance of it working. Thanks for the suggestion though, as it worked (not for long though xD), I will still give you some rep. :)
