Looking for a very comfortable headset for gaming.

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a good headset for gaming mainly, I will do some music listening with them but the music quality isn't a huge concern. I'm not an audiophile by any respect the most important thing for me would be comfort I want to be able to wear them for 8 hours straight without making my ears soar. I also really want a microphone and the ones that go on the cord never work that great for me. Looking for between $50-$125 I can go a little over. Anyone have any recommendations?

Wow those are marked down a lot, I really wish they had the mic attached like the beard guy modded but I could probably deal with my desktop with that price drop

What's wrong w g35? He said gaming not audiophile. G35 is very comfortable and great for gaming. I'm happy with it listening to music.

All the audiophiles are going to hate on that surround sound and honestly I don't like it, it's just so weird.

I understand that and I wouldn't recommend that headset for an audiophile. But he did state he's not an audiophile. The g35 set with bc2 through the sb x-fi fatality pro is so sweet. Even w good onboard sound it's great for gaming and comfort. And voice changer =p.

I do not know how to break this to you.....but if you are using a Logitech G35 headset, you are not using your Creative Fatality sound card at all.

The USB headset is the sound card.

Logitech G930, just as good as the G35 but wireless freedom... and on sale.
