What wireless gaming headphones should I get?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My Corsair HS1s are breaking on me after over a year of owning them. So it's time to pick up a new pair and i'm really leaning towards wireless since my cat loves to chew on cables, not to mention the chord gets in the way.

What would someone recommend for FPS gaming and some light netflix? All comments are welcomed. Astros are out of the picture since they are too expensive.

Right now, I'm a little skeptical, but interested in the new line of skullcandy gaming. I've noticed more people are using this for console gaming but how good would they compare to other pc gaming headsets?

Or I can go with the Logitech G930s but I hate how bulky they look.

Someone please give me some advice.

That would be my recommendation, but with that being said what's your budget?

If you want a boom and are tempted by the skullcandy, go with amazon on that http://www.amazon.com/Skullcandy-Slyr-Gaming-Headset/dp/B009RXUNZI/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_3?s=aht&ie=UTF8&qid=1360728071&sr=1-3-fkmr1&keywords=KULLCANDY+PLYR+2, save you about 20 bones.

I have a $180 budget.

Would those be good for gaming?
