Need a good headset

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. So i think its time to invest into a good gaming headset. I'm staying away from the word "gaming" headset cause i know the are way overpriced and just a gimmick. Anyway, I needed them for gaming for bf3. I have a webcam mic that works perfect but of course don't want anyone to hear the feedback and whatnot.

My Spending limit is 50$ max! 50$ is pushing it. I was going to go to walmart and pick up a cheap headset but we all know how that turns out....every 2 days going back to get a new one.

I need something that is comfortable and doesn't get hot after hours of play. I live in a apartment by myself so i don't have to worry about closed or open headsets. I think i would prefer open since i still want to know whats going on and not that im being robbed and not even know it. xD

Sennheiser HD212 was recommend from the OCN gaming headsets guide.

The HD212 is a good choice.

Another option would be a high quality pair of earbuds, like: http://www.headphone.com/selection-g...etal-im590.php

If you can wear earbuds for extended periods of time (some can, some can't), then these will be less oppressive than a massive headset.

Around that price range I usually recommend the Beyerdynamics DT 235 (

), but those are $55, so they are outside of your price range.

The Sony MDR-XB500s ( ) aren't bad, and I consider them a pretty good value given their price.

I really like these

cans. Sound good without an amp too. You can usually find them for about $60, so a little higher than you listed but I think you'll like these. They handle bass very well, especially for the price.
