Depends on what you need, I haven't been reading the whole thread. I just skipped to the last page and some some misinformed comments.

I personally recommend the ad700's, I own them, they are open headphones but provide some of the best soundstage and separation on the market.

If you need a little more bass, hit up the m50's. There are other great brands as well seinheiser, akg, etc. Let me know what you need.



AKG 701's are a great set of headphones, I actually plan on upgrading to those next. I hope you got an amp or one built into your soundcard because those have a lot of resistance.
well im looking for a headset... headPHONES i guess for gaming.
i will listen to some music too (hardstyle/hardcore, if that matters) but i mainly care about the gaming.

I really liked the 7.1 surround on the g35's but thats not really that important since i dont really play much FPS anymore.

They have to cost max like 150-200$. also it cant really be open headphones

I could say the same to you, selective over the headphones you got and mic you have. That's just bashing the other end of the spectrum like console fanbois do all the time.

It was a set of Sennheiser's he got earlier this year, forget the exact model. Yes I can hear the differences, if you setup the sound right you can hear even the faint sounds of birds, footsteps around you, and wind gusting in games like Bad Company 2 that you def can't hear off a 5.1 setup, not mine anyways since the card is very old.

I listen to music just about 24/7 even when I'm going to sleep, I'm no sound noob like you just basically claimed me to be. I know what to listen for and what good sound sounds like.

I didn't say the G35 headset was the best, I said it was good for the price and if he could get a new set free from warranty, then save that money up and get a sound card if he could.

You really should think before you speak cause you come off as a complete douche, when I'm just trying to offer advice.

Well, Creative do have some good USB soundcards, but since you don't have space for a sound card, just stick to onboard sound then. Get a m50 for 200 if possible then. It's the best headphone for that price by a far margin. I don't think a mic is very impt tbh.

is this good for gaming aswell, because i fell like most of you are talking about music all the time also, ar they 2.1, 5.1? what are they?

Well the USB sound cards just plug into the computer from a spare USB port. He could just get a USB hub and plug it in, then get a good 5.1-7.1 setup.

Also, you didn't register the headset when you got it? They usually offer a limited lifetime warranty with it.

Those are your 2 choices, and I think currently are the best you can get. I haven't done much research on the USB cards, so I couldn't tell you.

usb soundcards are some of the worst possible things you can do, onboard is better.

audio gets fragmented when going through a usb system, if you are going to drop that kind of money get one that is going to plug into your expansion slot.
