Headset?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well, i recently got into using Teamspeak, and my headset (attachted!) isnt cutting it, and i want a new one BUT i have a few stipulations

It MUST not block out ambient sounds - i use my speakers for audio, and the headset for TS audio - nothing else, and i dont want the other noise being blocked

It must be under £20

It must be comfortable (although in ear or 1 ear headsets are nice!)

Here's a link for Logitech headset I use.

They sound good for the money.
Here's another Logitech headset.

Hope this helps
Gaming with Headphones is the best way to play unless you have a 4.1, 5.1 system, because you can hear a lot more.

$20, but rip off UK means £30!

eBay has a few for £15 + P&P though...

Looks tempting, thanks!

the "Gamecom 1" is a renamed "Audio 90" which is pretty much the best headset around BUT it blocks out noise.

I think i'll get it anyway, though, thanks!

PC160 is your best bet, which isn't blocking out noise.
