Looking for a 7.1 Headset with some of these qualities - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Too lazy to look through it on my phone, but get gaming headphones from the recommended audio section, a used Titanium HD or Xonar ST(X) or a newer, cheaper soundcard, and a clip on mic.

As far as positional sound goes, they'll sound infinitely better than any headset for the money. With the xonar, your voice will be clearer as well.

While not the best for competitive gaming, I'm immensely happy with my modded Fostex t50rps with my Xonar ST.

What razor headset you looking at? The tiamat? Good for computer but not sure about ps4 and ipad. And if they did work I wouldnt rate them any chance of sounding good. The 7.1 just help a little more with positional awareness in fps. Anywhere from 5 - 20 percent boost to your gameplay but they have no bass and sound tinny with distortion at some frequencies. I had them for 3 weeks and gave up on the and the phoebus 7.1 sound card.

To be honest anyone who knows audio will tell you get a set of stereo headphones. Because a decent top headset is only going to be equivelent to a average set of cans. You can pick up a zalman Mic for 15 dollars spend 300 on headphones that are twice the quality of a Razer headset.

Here is a saying that I believe in

You buy fish from a fish and chip shop and chicken from a charcoal chicken shop. You never buy from the shop that does it all.

I.e. Razer make good mouses n keyboards. Sennheiser make heaphones.


If you want a headset get the sennheiser pc360,363,350 etc

If you want headphones that will work on anything and have you listening to them everywhere the ultrasone signature djs are awesome. I have them and use them 2hours a day minimum. I cant recommend them enough. I know they cost a bit but you get great distortion free sound with out a dac. The amount of hours of used them has totally repaid me for the original out lay. People talk up beats and then they try my Sig djs and they are blown away.

In your budget I would get the akg q 701 Quincy Jones headphones - they are $349 at http://www.addictedtoaudio.com.au/AKG-Q701-Quincy-Jones-Signature-Line-ReferenceClass-Headphones

so i shud get 5.1 or regular good stereo headphone and use ranzer surround ? but razer app is for windows right ? how i'll get 7.1 effect on ipad or phones when listening music
There is no such thing as surround for mobile devices.
1. Music is always stereo
2. Mobile devices don't support multiple channels (afaik).
3. Only thing you need surround for is games and movies (that actually have DTS audio track, which basically means BD).

If you want to use the headphones on mobile devices you need 3.5mm plug headphones with low impedance (or an amplifier).

Here just buy these and you'll be happy

Beyer DT770 $170
http://www.amazon.com/Beyerdynamic-770-PRO-250-ohms/dp/B0006NL5SM

Modmic $33
http://www.modmic.com/collections/frontpage/products/modmic

Creative Z $99, Asus Xonar DG or DGX if you want a cheaper card
http://www.amazon.com/Creative-Blaster-Beamforming-Microphone-SB1500/dp/B009ISU33E
http://www.amazon.com/Xonar-DSX-Engine-Playback-Support/dp/B007TMZ1MY

You need a sound card to amp the headphones and provide the surround sound effects

edit: you would need a portable headphone amp to use with mobile devices/ipad, something like http://www.amazon.com/FiiO-E11-Portable-Headphone-Amplifier/dp/B0053KWDES

Personally I would recommend DT990 instead of DT770 if you are going to get 250ohm version instead of 80ohm.

Keep in mind that 250ohm versions use coiled cable.
