Looking for a headset - with a twist

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
D any experience with these? They appear to meet all my needsI know everyone recommends using a clip-on mic, but I really need an attached mic. Clarity and physical flexibility is priority. I don't have the strongest voice or that great of projection, so this is of the utmost importance.
I see a lot of sets with in-line volume controls. While these are a great idea, they don't really work for me as I have limited finger control to operate small switches like that. As far as comfort goes, I'd really like circumaural and padded like hell.

Has anyone had experience with the Cyborg F.R.E.Q. 5 or any Tritton headsets? They appear to meet my needs? I really like that the controls on the Cyborg are on the cans rather than in-line, so easier to operate.

Holy crap there's some good deals on that site.

The one you linked looked great, especially because I don't have a sound card. What about this one? (a bit cheaper)
Corsair CA-HS1

or if I'm feeling crazy, this one's $90 but $160 off. How are boom mics to use? I've never used one.
Sony DRGA500

Hey,

I currently own the corsair one and for 50$ it's really decent. The bass is a bit lacking but, for the price, the sound quality is optimal and the build quality is really nice. The boom mics are really easy to use and usually only pick up the noise that come from your mouth, which prevent the people you are talking to to ear everything that's happening in your office. The only con is that you cannot remove the mic if it break.
