Hello, i am currently looking for a new headhones with in build mic ater my old headhones broke.
I was thinking about the sirus, but i am still wondering waht is the diffrence between the flashy controller version and the S version, and should i take the "regular" one if i got xonar essence STX sound card? and what about some of the other ones like: 1300 by corsair and even the tt shock spin/one?
Thnx.

What is your budget?

We won't recommend headsets as they are overpriced and not very good.

The best option is to get a regular pair of headphones and get a Antlion ModMic

I would strongly recommend you buy some nice headphones and a cheap $5 mic. I bought a Zalman clip on mic for less than $2 (shipping cost 2x more than the mic) off Amazon and it has better sound quality than allot of headsets offer. I don't even clip it on and people can hear me completely fine with the mic sitting behind my monitors under a bunch of cables.

There is very little value offered with headsets, especially ones targeted towards "gaming". The build quality is usually cheap and the sound quality just isn't there, especially compared to similarly priced headphones.

I suggest checking out THIS thread.

I am from israel, oh and i see that the mic isnt important so that is good, i can give you a site where they show some of the head phones we do have in israel 100 bucks worth around 400 ISL(our money), but i dont know if i am allowed to post site links.
And the thing is i dont really want to ship into the country because of the warranty issues that may occur, especially in israel where shipping can be a big big headache

Sure, I can have a look for you.

I can't imagine Israel is the easiest place to ship to.
