Need a new pair of cans - Page 2

post #11 of 16

Way to go.
With USB headphones you're limited to the internal sound processor they have, not a good idea.

Personally I think USB headphones sound better, although I have only used high end Logitech ones so I may not have heard the lower quality stuff. USB can deliver enough bandwidth to produce high quality audio though.

I will never own a Set of usb headphones again. Way too much interference and locked into the usb format. I wouldn't be able to use them on my avr or my ipod etc.

I suppose that is true, but my Logitech wireless (that's why it's USB) headset sounds amazing. I love it, except for the fact that it will no longer charge. I personally think it had better sound quality than any pair of 150 dollar headphones I have ever heard.

Depends on what 150 pair of cans you are talking about. If it's beats, then yes of course. Those are horrid headphones. Wireless?! Even worse than USB! D: Even more interference on wireless unless an odd frequency is used. 2.4GHz and even some 5Ghz wireless headphones are just a definite no go.

Beats are the most horrid headphones in the world, when people buy them I simply laugh at them haha. But the sound quality on my Logitech stuff sounded absolutely amazing, I couldn't ask for a better pair of headphones and the wireless capabilities is wonderful. I would recommend them to anyone, just be careful when you unplug them because if you pull too hard too many times the solder inside stops connecting and you have to resolder it but that destroys the warranty.
