Considering replacing my Logitech G35 headset

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I've been using a Logitech G35 USB headset for a while. It's been very nice, I've been satisfied with the audio quality (although not always the bass sound) and I do enough gaming that having a headset with a microphone is really appreciated. However, it has experienced some physical wear and tear and so I am looking at possible replacements.

One obvious replacement would be to look at their G930 which is basically the same headset except wireless. However, I suspect that Logitech is a big enough brand name that there are other companies that have better quality for the same price, or similar quality for less price.

I definitely need a headset with good voice capabilities. I'd use it primarily for gaming, and to a lesser extent listening to music and movie playback. I don't have a firm estimate of how much I'm willing to spend, but something in the region of $100 seems like an appropriate jumping-off point. I don't have a commitment to any brand name, or to the USB interface. Wireless would be convenient but if I had to choose between wireless and higher sound/voice quality, I would go wired.

Can you give me advice?

Thank you for your time,
John Magnum

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll take a look at them.

Also, I probably should have mentioned: I currently quite like the G35's circumaural design, since I intend for the headset to be attached to my desktop rather than used with a laptop or music player.
