Looking for a headset.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've never owned a headset for gaming in my life, so I don't know ANYTHING. I've been talking into webcams my entire life, and I want to actually experience a headset for what its worth.

As for budget, I don't really know. Absolutely nothing over $100. I'd like to keep the price as minimal as possible. Only real requests I have are comfort, and that it's compatible with the X-Fi Titanium. I spend most of my time gaming. I'd like to be able to wear it without it hurting my ears or weighing down on my neck.

That's really it. Thanks.

I find them quite comfortable, although my head isn't exactly the smallest.
Sound quality is definitely great and supposedly gets better after burning them in for 100 hours.

I would recommend you go into the For sale thread on this forum and find some Sennheiser HD 555 sold used for around 50 bucks, I got the the Sennheiser HD 595, and the sound is splendid. They are open cans, so you will hear what is going on around you, but in exchange you get awesome soundstage, crispy and clear sound.

I am using Sennheiser HD 595 with Zalman clip on mic, and I am not satisfied with the quality on the mic, since the mic is positioned distanced from your mouth, the quality is so-so.
