Recommend me a headset from these 2 sites (in India)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey, I need a cheap headset for movies and gaming.

The 2 sites I'd like to buy from are listen below, the Indian eBay is full of Chinese ripoffs.

Flipkart
Snapdeal

My budget is Rupees.1000-2000, Id prefer something closer to 1k and only up to or a little more than 2k if its a worth it.

The Plantronics Audio 355 and 360 look great but have mixed review on newegg and amazon, cant find any english reviews of the 2 Philips, and one of them is USB.
I like the Logitech H250, its cheap a review says the sound isn't bad. How is the Plantronics Gamecon 367?

The few I liked so far:
Budget's lower limit
Plantronics Audio 360
Genius HS-G500V
Philips SHM7410U
Logitech Stereo Headset H250

Budget's upper limit
Plantronics Audio 355
Philips SHG7210
Plantronics GameCom 367
Philips SHG7980

Thanks

Leave these headphones ,they r more of cheap quality.Enter into the world of Quality headphones Man!!!

Go to Proaudiohome.com and search their for these

1)Koss Porta Pro - Build in 1980's but still a bang in quality
2)Sennheiser HD202 II
3)Low on budget : take Senn HD201
4)For more refined n smooth tone and less bass - check Audo-Technica's hp

If still tight on budget go for sony's XD-200(inr-1300-1400) which u also can listen on some big sony showrooms.
Remember a headset is always lower in quality than a Headphone.


They r located in mumbai so delievry n rates arn't an issue. smile.gif

If OP do not need any mic, HD202 II or Superlux HD-681 will be a good choice. I agree to gabu840 that most headset are marketing gimmicks only.. Entertain your ears with "the real headphones".. smile.gifsmile.gif

Dude.... this is awesome! I had no idea sites like these existed here, and they have a decent price on them, no ridiculous markup. I'm looking for something with a mic, need something for long online gaming sessions and my current setup is a little uncomfortable. Big Image (Click to show)
Although I could mod my current mic with a clip and attach it onto a wire.

They don't seem to carry the Audio Technica HP, nor the JVC's.

My budget is 2K max, I don't want to spend any more at the moment. Just got the Asus G55 and I'm broke. Could you recommend me something from there under 2K, I'm liking the HD 202's, the Koss ones look a bit flimsy.



Thanks! +1

Yeah, I have a pair of Roland's for my personal use, but I needed something for online gaming. I think I'll go in for the HD202 II + mod my current mic to clip onto the headphone's wires.
