I never ever mentioned beats I would never recommend such crap to someone, and no- its not worth paying $300 for a mic alone. I'm not trying to bag out Sennheisser I just know the PC350 is overpriced crap and worth nothing but a cent. And yes for gaming alone the MMX300 are the best headphones you can get. Not great for music though, fairly hollow mid range. Unless you are a professional gamer and you play at esports or do voice recording and have to have the clearest mic ever, a standalone or clip on mic will be perfectly sufficient. Pair that with quality headphones such as the: Audio-Technica ATH-AD700/AD900, Alessandro MS-1, AKG-242HD and you will get the best value for money while achieving really good sound.
No marketing was not the reason I got it. It all depends what your priorities are if your gaming a few hours a night Taking off and on a headphone with attached mic can get annoying. Having to clip on and off everytime I moved from my pc. Sure they are more expensive and majority of headsets are overpriced. But if you are purely a gamer it does make sense. I would gladly pay a little extra for the convenience alone. If its for music that's a complete different topic altogether and I would stick with an external amp and dac and purely use the soundcard as a transport using optical. The mmx300 headset is a good option and an overpriced dt770 but again its the convenience of having an all in one solution. Guess we can go all day back and forward I do agree that they are overpriced its just comes down to preference. There's plenty of options for the OP guess he just needs to work out what is his preferences and go from there.

Yes I agree. Comes down to personal preference in the end, I just don't want the OP wasting his money when he could spend it much more wisely.

For sure if money is an important factor a headphone is the best way to go as price for performance is better versus a headset.

Ok guys i got it - pc 350 is bad idea. You are saying about other models and telling me that sennhs are ovepriced. If i would go pc 360/pc 363d you + sound card, you strongly recommend the first one beacuase the 363d has just sound card AND THAT'S ALL yes? They look different but you're telling me it's only look differences, sound is same, the comfor of keeping them on head i same etc yes? About my gaming - as i told you i was rly rly gaming before but now i just want to play every weekend how much as i can and have rly good headphones/headset and mouse for it biggrin.gif I know that you 'll tell me that for listening to music i can pay rly less and get better.. but the true is if i do something on computer it's mostly gaming and mby listening to music while gaming but it's only sometimes... But 360/363d are that bad for music rly ? I am not audiophile or something and I am not a kid who has rich parrents or something so don't even think like that ;p Let's say money doesn't matter and i want sennheisers. You're saying guys that they are overpriced, if they would be like 30% less expensive, would you recommend it to me ?

Yeah the pc363d even though the aesthetics are different the drivers and everything else is identical except the added USB input. The money difference between the two you are better getting a soundcard and pc360. The pc360 is good for gaming but for music there isn't much low or mid bass any rap,r&b or even pop songs with a bit of bass come of sounding a little boring and flat. Vocals sound good but I wouldn't recommend the pc360 for music. I don't mind spending money on audio and have a few headphones and pc360 headset but my circumstances are different. As Dctr mentioned a headphone and mic would be significantly cheaper and provide price per value more performance. If I only had to choose one headphone I would probably struggle aswell. I have Sennheisers hd700 & hd650 for music and i still use the pc360 for gaming. If i did have to only choose one for an all rounder music and gaming in your price range i would probably pick Beyers dt880. Audio is a long journey I just don't want you to spend your money and then be disappointed. If you had my exact taste and preferences it would be easy. Audio is just so subjective one persons pride and joy pair of cans maybe might sound fatiguing to someone else. I know I'm not helping much but just read lots of reviews of the headphones or headset your after and if you get the chance to hear them somewhere before you buy them then you would know exactly what your after or if you are making the right choice.

ok i'll get (mby even today) to the shop and i'll try them out but .. it's only trying on music, not on gaming so i don't know if there is a point of it biggrin.gif As i told you gaming will be main thing that i'll do on my computer atm so ... I'll go to the shop and will write you. Even stupid wearing those headpsets mby will help me with choosing ;d But i think i'll take pc 360 and sound card... But what do you think isin't better to buy 363d because it's newer technology ?
post #37 of 57
The technology is the same it's just the plastic that's different. The USB connection just doesn't sound as good as a soundcard even a $20 soundcard will sound better than the USB and from memory it adds about $60 to the cost from the pc360 -363d. Let us know how you go :-)

Newer technology? Audio technology hasn't improved in over 20 years (minus the soundcard/driver tech).

DT990 for example is a rebrand of DT990 from the 80's:

My advice is you buy a nice $100-$200 pair of headphones, and if you want buy a sound card later. I think that you would really like the Audio-Technica Ah-AD-700s they are very good for music and perform very well in games as well. They are a beautiful pair of headphones and if you treat them well they will last you a long time. Then if you want you can buy a standalone or clip on mic to go with them.
