Wireless and gaming don't go together for me, once those batteries get low things start getting funky

G35 is a good headset. Although I thought it was a little heavy, compared to other brands I have used. I do think logitech puts too many features (extra programable buttons, morphing) into there products which inflate the cost unnecessarily. I didn't find the construction what it should be, as the wire connecting the headset to USB started "shorting out". I have had that issue with their gaming mice.

Logitech to it's credit does have a liberal exchange policy when under warranty, so if your comfortable with the product and features I would consider it. For me, it's a bit pricey compared to value.

Hopefully the next version of the G series headset will be a bit sturdier.

Ive never had probs with any of their wiring as i have the g9 and g19 also but everyones experience is different. I gets I could agree with the too many features part as i dont use em all neway but for the quality of the headset your gonna pay more or the same with somthing else so features or not. Its up there

Read this.

If you have to have a headset, I would STRONGLY recommend getting the Sennheiser PC350s over the Logitechs. They should just be in your budget at the top end. Ebay pops into mind first.

If you want a good headset, please please don't get a G35.
I think the most comfortable headset I've seen is the Corsair HS1A.

The HS1A has received lots of reviews claiming it is really really comfortable. The structure of the HS1A is similar to the HS1, except the HS1 has built in surround sound which you don't want.
Since the HS1A are analog, you can get a nice sound card to give it awesome surround sound.
I suggest the Xonar DX.

If you want to cut down on money, you can go for a cheaper soundcard like a Xonar DS, or DG.
Even if you aren't an audiophile, you still deserve great sound.

Now those things look padded, I will look at those for sure.

Another person recommending the AD700s... I've had them for almost a year, still going strong and very comfy. They feel are very light, and you don't fatigue while using them as you would with a USB headset (my experience).

Audio Technica are at the forefront of comfort in headphones.

I've had A900's for over a year now and even though they weigh a fair bit, you cannot feel them on your head. I'd highly recommend any Audio Technica headphones product over a tacky unspecefic headset. To pair with your AT headphones,most recommend the Zalman ZM-Mic1, I also recommend the Logitech Desktop microphone for those who don't like clip-ons.

If you still like music, but you don't find it as important as gaming, you'd probably be more interested in the HD555, or HD595's by Sennheiser, they are more marketed towards gamers. Comfort is still there, but not as comfy as the AT equivalent AD700's, but the HD5x5's are much less bulky and offer better looks and portability. As funny as it sounds, they are the 'standard' non-standard gaming headphone. These as most headphones do, pair well with a desktop or clip-on mic.

Hope that helps!

Why is G35 a bad headset? I just want peoples opinions because I have no problem with it at all. But I have not tried all these other headsets that are being recommended.
