Headset Suggestions?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
So, I know that OCN may not view headsets as "Good" but I've decided too go for one. At the minute I have a pair of JVC Rx900's with a Blue Snowball. I primarily need the Headset for, gaming and music, so if they are a good sounding headset I would like to know.

The reason I want to change that is, I game alot, so my Blackwidow keyboard sounds extremely loud in the snowball, so whoever I am talking to on skype can barely hear me.

I am fine with the headphone's I currently have, but they are a bit on the heavy side. So if anyone has any suggestion for a good headset or headphone and microphone pair, I would highly appreciate it.

( I was keeping my eye on the SteelSeries Siberia V2, if anyone has these do you recommend them for music and gaming? )

Thanks as always.

What is your price range? I personally just purchased some Samson RH600s from Amazon. Somewhat of a budget set but highly recommended here on OCN.

AD700/A700 with zalman clip on or a modmic. Do you have a soundcard?

G930 isn't too bad when it comes to gaming if you want a plain old headset. Plus the wireless is VERY nice. Great for MMOs like Everquest where you may have to poopsock for a few hours at a time and don't want to be stuck at your desk a long time.

My first Mic was the Zalam Clip and to be brutally honest I hated it so much that after a week of use I gave it to my friend.. And no, I don't have a soundcard, there are no free spaces smile.gif

It is, but it's a desk mic which really is inconvenient.. Alot of Youtube Personality's use it and the Blue Yeti... But I need a change, the modmic looks really cool, but it isn't available in my country.

Attaching a boom mic with velcro to a headset is not difficult. wink.gif
