Wireless Headset for $100-150?? Skype + Gaming

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys,

I currently have a Turtle Beach headset that was designed for the Xbox I guess.. The cords like 10feet long and annoys me.

So I am looking for a solid quality head set for $100-150.. Maybe $200 if needed.. I would like one that doesnt feel cheap.. and is adjustable.. I got a big head..

Needs a MIc!

I only use it for skype and games.. I honestly dont listen to music too often, but would love it if I can have sound going on in the background of the headset and not have the person I am chatting with hear it..

My tutle beach picks up ever sound in the room and even in my hall way.. and I try to turn it down but it doesnt help..

Why do people say wireless isnt the way to go??

Would love suggestions!

Looks like the Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 would be a perfect fit for your needs.

I prefer wired headset so I don't have to worry about batteries and such.
plus, most wireless headsets are on the 2.4ghz spectrum. which may have interference with other electronics such as cordless phones and microwaves.

G930. It pales in comparison to a good pair of headphones/sound card with a mic. But it gets the job done. I used it for quite a while before I got my current setup. The VOIP is awesome on it I will admit. Good battery life (10+ hours, never died on me).
