New Headset

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey wizards of audio,
I'm looking into buying a new headset for my computer, it's gonna be used for everything especially gaming. I currently have one of these http://www.trittonaudio.com/prod/pc510.asp and it's pretty messed up, it has cracks on it because the sound controller is heavy enough that when I put the headset down on my desk the sound controller will just pull it off, and it falls hard. It sounds good but it's heavy as hell and not very comfortable. Anyways I was looking into buying a Razer Kraken, this one specifically http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826153112 I want a headset under 100$ simply because my current one is under 100$ and I don't want to pay more than that. Any suggestions or recommendations are welcome,

Thanks,
Keegs

If you want a PC headset type deal then as always I must present headphones and mic as an option. For that price an Antlion Modmic and Superlux 668b Headphones sounds good. Maybe a blue snowflake if you don't want the mic clipped on your headphones.

Its gotta have a mic attached to it, a snowball would be really goofy sitting in front of me when I'm playing games, on my pc.

1) Budget is 100$

2) Musical tastes range from heavy metal to Japanese techno

3) I really want a comfortable headset that is lighter than my current one, also excellent for gaming

4) I already have this headset http://www.trittonaudio.com/prod/pc510.asp and my computer to use it on, (see specs for motherboard, yes I use onboard audio)

5) I'm gonna use it at home for watching videos, playing games and listening to music (so no carry case needed)

6) I live in Canada, Newegg.ca Amazon.ca and many others are good websites for me

Hope that makes this easier,
Thanks

Yeh I was looking at those to, I have a SkullCandy for my ipod and it's okay. I'll consider that one, but I think the superlux 668b is probably the best, I just wanna get it somewhere that I don't have to pay 98$ for it and then buy a mic
