is there a better?..

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
all rounder headset for £70 than the logitech g35's??
my headset is about dead and i need a new set. £70 seems ok for 7.1 dolby, yes?

my main focus is gaming but will be used for the occasional tune and some tv.

I'd take a look at the new corsair hs1 headphones.
they apparently have a bigger driver (50mm) than anyone else (they say everyone else uses 40mm drivers).
I have tried them at a local store, and they sound better with music than my razer charcharias headphones, and almost the same if not better than the g35's only that the corsairs have a very clear sound all through the range of sound were the razers like bass, and the g35's favor mids. IMO

As for 2.1 gaming, the razers feel more tuned for that, but the g35's and the corsairs are about the same, in 7.1 gaming (BFBC2) the corsairs sound better, and the g35's and razers feel about the same.

For me the "7.1" surround in the g35's is more of a label than actual results, from hearing them in store. You only have two ears, so why would you need more than 2 drivers in a pair of headphones?
If you have a good sound card, it takes care of the surround effects. If it matters to you, the corsairs have Dolby Headphone technology built in as well, so they handle "7.1" very well. You get a pretty good sense of what's where better than the g35's.

I personally think that the Corsair headphones are the most comfortable, because they have memory foam earpads with fabric covers, the biggest cans, and they are one of the few headphones that fit my big ears.

I'm planning to order a pair, and I think you might want to take a look into them as well.

I have them on order, and I just want to see the comfort with extended use
They felt much lighter in store, so they should be good.
