Which Headset?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all and thanks in advance for the help.

I am getting a new headset and need to pick one but first a couple things.

-Budget is around $85
-Has to be comfortable. (I got the Razer Carcharias and they are WAY too small for my ears)
-Have to buy local at Best Buy or similar. I can ship to store but I HAVE to be able to return them if I'm not happy.
-I have a brand new ASUS DG so Analog is a must.
-I don't care about 5.1 or 7.1
-I really only play games, but some light music on the side, no movies.

I know people will say get headphones + mic but I can't see how that is possible with my budget and there don't seem to be lots of options from local stores. The two choices I am looking at since the Razer ones were small and made my ears hurt are:

1. Corsair Vengeance 1300 Analog - $85.00 (Brand new with good reviews so far) http://www.corsair.com/vengeance-1300-analog-gaming-headset.html

2. Steel Series 5h v2 $70 (solid headset, been around a bit) http://steelseries.com/products/audio/steelseries-5hv2#did-you-know

Thanks again and I'm looking forward to seeing what everybody thinks.
