Looking for headphones and mic.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Lately I have been reading that a headphones plus mic combo is a lot better than a single headset for about the same price. So I'm curious about this and want to try it out for myself.
I have read the guide and looked around for shops in the Netherlands and Europe, in order to see the prices.
I will put some stuff in bullet points and go on after that wink.gif

Budget:
I have a budget of 100 euro's. This is pretty much the maximum I want to spend at the moment, altho if a selection is a lot better and costs 120 I'm willing to consider it.

Aim of the headphones:
They will mostly be used for gaming. But Im also looking for some headphones to use with my phone/ipod. But the main use of the headphones will be gaming.

Location:
The Netherlands

Possible shops:

So I have been looking around using the guide and I came across the following headphones:
Samson RH600

Superlux HD-668 B

And I saw someone mentioning the Superlux HD-681 EVO WH
http://www.thomann.de/nl/superlux_hd_681_evo_wh.htm

They all pretty much cost the same, so Im at a loss which one is the best.

For the time being I will use them with my onboard soundcard, but I might get a Asus sonar DG seeing as thats only 30 euro's.

As for the mic, Im not sure what to pick. I have been looking at the Samson CO1U, which is around 55 euro's. But I dont use my mic that often, so I might just get some trust/logitech mic for <20 euro's if I can find one.

So any suggestions are welcome smile.gif

edit:
At the moment Im using a creative soundblaster arena. Or atleast I think thats what it is called.

So after some more research I came up with the following:

The superlux HD 668 B, the asus xonar DGX.

Main reason for opting the DGX over the DG is due to it having a PCIe slot. And I think the DGX is the same as the DG except for the slot type.
Still looking for a proper mic, but I might end up with the samson Go Mic.

Any other suggestions, or is this a solid choice?

Yeah, DGX is new PCIe version of DG.
