Looking for extremely comfortable headset

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

So yea, what the title says. And no, I'm not using some cheapo $10 headset. For whatever odd reason, every headset I've tried seems to pain me, give me serious headaches after just around 20m or so of wear. It's so annoying! So I can never use voice chat and stuff, unless I'm willing to go through the misery of putting on my headset again..

I've been through a Logitech G35, that absolutely killed me, I eventually sold it, and got myself a Corsair Vengeance 2000 (which a few of my friends have and they say it's quite comfortable). Which it is, about 100% better than the G35, but it still hurts :/

I just find both squeeze in on my head too hard, is there nothing out there that is light and just loosely rests on your head? I actually wear my headset so far back on my head that it's on the verge of falling off to minimalize the amount of weight/pressure is resting on top of my head. If I wear it normally, the pain is unbearable.

So I don't want to go out and buy a third headset now, and find that that one hurts too..

Does anyone know of any high-quality, extreme comfort headsets for people with sensitive heads like me? Even one without a mic will do (as I understand some of these might be for like, listening to music and stuff so maybe no mic, as I could just get an external mic) although I would prefer one with a mic if possible (to save costs on a separate external mic).

Thanks!

I have the Steelseries Siberia V2 and I find them to be extremely comfortable.

They look nice, but do they have any wireless ones?.. I find the cord always gets in my way :S

What is your budget? You could look into the 150 dollar range and go for the DT 770 250 ohm Headphones + an extra microphone. It will beat every Headset in sound quali and is very very comfortable through the pads.
But the siberia V2 is also a nice headset but there is no wireless Version and I dont think wireless is the best idea.

Oh, why wouldn't wireless be the best idea? :s My Vengeance 2000 sound seems to be fine.. And as of budget, I don't really have a "price range", although I'd prefer to spend less if possible, so I'd say >$200
