Biased reply is biased.
In terms of outright BETTER an awesome quality set of headphones will always beat a headset because you can get them up to a few 1000$ a set and headsets are usually produced for a certain consumer in mind. It's completely bollocks to assume every headphones are awesome and every headset is really bad. And about the KDR: I knew people that played Metal Gear Online that could tell where people were walking when he was a floor under them. Pinpoints the exact room. If you learn to use it, it'll actually help. But like everything practice makes perfect.
A reply like that isn't helpfull to anyone and is as fanboy as people drooling over their Turtle Beach.
So to answer your question: NO headsets won't always be better than headphones and in a lot of cases it's the other way around. But if you have a specific budget and a specific demand then a headset CAN be right for you.
Basically, what we try to do is save the average person from wasting their money. Instead, showing them that high quality phones can be had for a fraction of the price of the usual headset.
The consumer that the headset is marketed to is the uninformed one, and we aim to fix that by letting them know their options. Pointing them towards phones that blow the sound quality out of the headset out of the water.
It's not a troll.
All right, I'm not talking about a headset. Nothing with a mic. I'm talking about listening to music and for gaming (but not talking), etc.
I'm not really sure about the right terminology but I'm talking about over-the-ear and in-ear headphones. Say if each were $150, would the over-the-ear headphones be necessarily better than the in-ear? Or not so?
In that case, headphones will generally be better, but there are some high quality ear buds out there too.
Headphones have larger drivers, and are capable of having a larger soundstage and more quality sound.
