Headphones with mic?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am considering getting either of these two.

HD555 -


HD595 -


What kind of noticeable difference will I am be able to tell between the two? Also I do want a mic and I know these do not include one, so what kind of clip on mic would I be looking at?

Or does anyone have suggestion for headphones with a mic? My friend just recently got the Logitech G35 headset and he really enjoys them.

I was going to recommend the G35 headset, honestly.

My first shot at a headset was a set of dedicated headphones plus a cheap clip-on mic. I used the headphones for plenty of other things, so I felt warranted going this way. However, I found the mic to be less than optimal.

If you're going to use the headphones for something else as well, then the HD555/595 will be excellent. I've never used either personally, but they're always some of the first recommended as a set of cans and from what I can tell, they're on sale for a steal right now. There is a cheap clip-on mic on Amazon, let me go browse my history and I'll edit the link in.

is the one that is usually highly recommended, IIRC. It should be good enough quality to not make you sound like you're talking through a block of styrofoam while standing in the shower. I couldn't find any in my browsing history, so I think I just used the cheap clip-on mic that came with my headphones in the first place.

That mic is excellent. I use it with my Beyerdynamic DT770's and not a single person i've asked about it on the other end says my voice is an any way unclear. Using recording software to hear myself back just proves it to me further, the mic works great. You can even tweak the sensitivity up a little bit in windows and just tape it to the top of your monitor and it will hear you just fine.
