Need a new headset, PC350 broked....(Purpose mispell!)

State your budget! (Set an absolute maximum or give a relative maximum with + x amount if it will be amazingly better) :
0-300$
Quote:
State your music tastes:
Everything, although this will mainly be for gaming.
Quote:
State what perks are highly desirable (low impedance, heavy bass, excellent for gaming etc..) :
All around excellence, mainly gaming however.
Quote:
State what products you already have and are planning on using with your recommended item (state whether you have an amp if you're looking for headphones with high impedance for example) :
I had a Sen PC350, the mic broke and it's obsessivley annoying so I decided to go pick up a new headset.. After doing a lot of research I picked up the HD558, however... I immediately noticed that the directional sound is very muffled(heavy bass), although I'm not overly surprised as they are more so audio headphones from everything I'd read, I really just wanted to give them a try as they looked very comfortable (and they are) so I tried them with music and baboom they sound amazing! I don't have an amp... however I may look in to one!
Quote:
State how you are going to use the item (e.g. out-and-about, at the gym, at home, PC / console, gaming, music etc). The more detail in this, the better.
These will soley be for PC/Laptop gaming (FPS) and some music when not blaring out of my speakers.
Quote:
State where you live and offer some sites that are known for having good prices / being reputable so we can help recommend you products in your country's currency (like Amazon or ebay).
I live in Canada, ordering is an option however anything local (willing to travel) to Alberta is acceptable.


I hope someone can give me some tips. smile.gif Please only advice that has been researched... I don't want recommendations like turtle beach ect that is junk.. (Not trying to offend anyone)

I would rather get a seperate microphone and headphones. Better quality overall and around the same price.

Nowhere around me sells used, unless you're saying you have some for sale in which case maybe?

No, I saw some things on head-fi earlier today. I realized that one pair has already sold in ~4 hours and the other is actually located in austrailia so shipping would be outrageous.

Try and look around for some sennheiser HD600s. You should be able to find them in your budget.

HD558 or HD598, cheaper alternatives around your price range.
