New Gaming Headset - Advice needed

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Currently looking around for a new surround sound gaming headset (or stereo - I will just use Razer's Surround Sound software with it) narrowed it down to 2 after abit of research. Open to all other suggestions however. Will be used mainly for gaming and skype/mumble etc. music less often.

Corsair Vengeance 1500
Logitech G430

Budget is anything at £80 and below (preferably lower) Build quality and comfort are pretty important for me, as I will often use it for long periods. USB headset preferred as my sound card isn't the best.

Haven't done much research into the options available, so any recommendations and advice is welcome!

I've been using the Logitech G35 headset for awhile now and love them. Didn't know they came out with the G430. I really like Logitech stuff.

Can't comment on the Corsair, I've never used them. Corsair makes excellent cases, I've used them in three builds and may always stick with their cases.

G430 has problems with the USB-dongle.
And as usual: OCN's Most Recommended Audio Products

My recommendation would be Xonar DGX + HD330/velours + Zalman mic. = 81£
Comfort would be identical to DT770, if not better because they are open-back.
