Just got ordered the 2000 and I'm wondering if I should cancel and go for the G930.
Thoughts?

Thanks thumb.gif

lol, while I agree because I have seen the light in avoiding USB headsets (enjoying my Ultrasones) and getting a pair of real headphones

That being said, IF these are your ONLY two options in life... the G930's are high build quality and Logitech supports their products well. Personally I like what Corsair does in other product lines, but I dont like products like headsets that only come in one color scheme (Blue?)... lame. If you are referring to the G930's on Newegg for $100, as opposed to $109 for the Corsair... not a HUGE difference.

For that money, you could get JVC HA-RX900, Samson SR850, or even some used Ultrasones on eBay like I did.

If you read the recommended products thread in the Audio subforum, you will find that the pro's here DO NOT recommend headsets because they are a sub-par product that costs more than quality headphones.

I am not one of these pro's, but I have read these threads and asked many of these same questions though.

i don't think that they are subpar, they are just overhyped and expensive

I can agree with that. Logitechs are fine build quality.

to clarify what I meant by subpar, is lower quality audio at the same price due to marketing/gimicks/GAMING/etc.

Well, they're headsets and headsets have awful sound.
