Need help choosing gaming headset!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey!

I'm gonna buy a new headset in a few days and i'm not sure which one to choose. The headsets I have in mind are:
Creative Sound Blaster Tactic3D Sigma
and
Sennheiser PC 360 G4ME

I would appreciate any input on which one to choose. Please suggest other headsets too. Price doesn't matter

The soundcard I use is: Creative SB X-Fi Titanium HD

Thanks

If you want to spend ~$50, buy the JVC HA-RX700. If you want to spend ~$100, get yourself some sennheiser HD555s/ATH-A700s.

Neither of those are headsets. Get over it. Buy a boom mic seperately and tape it on. It doesn't matter. Just make sure you're getting headphoans.

Are you sure that the HD555s is any good for gaming? I want to get the upper egde on the battlefield. Hearing where they are and a good overall sound quality.

If you want an edge in gaming get the AD700. Excellent sound stage (knowing where sounds come from) and most comfortable headphones under $200.

If you don't mind it being bass light.

This x1000. Amazon has them on sale in a combo with a Zalman omnidirectional mic, and both are very good.
