Still, sound quality is good and the headset itself is very comfortable, so as long as you can plug it directly into the USB on the computer you should be in good shape.
ok thanks i will take a look at those .i also noticed the pc version of the astro A50 for $200 i know it is above my budget but if i could swing it would it be a good investment . but you say most people would urge me to get a wired headset do you or anyone else no if i can get a headset that plugs into my 360 controller and gets me voice chat and hearing other players or am i gonna be stuck with a 10 + foot cable running across my living room if i go wired?
I dont believe the headset feature works on PC, at least it didnt with the xbox 360 controllers.
Ive never heard of the Astro series, but look up reviews and see if people like them. They are more expensive than the Logitech G930s but they look extremely similar, so be sure its worth the extra.
Wired headsets deliver better sound per dollar, but as LDV pointed out, if you do go wired its much cheaper to just build your own headset. you will get better sound that way. It may be a bit annoying to have the cable across the living room, but you do get better sound and not having to worry about batteries dying in the middle of a game.
