Yeah that picture is a bit misleading, I just wanted you to see what I meant when I said "boom mic"... The mic you buy will have its own 3.5mm connector that you can plug into the mic input of your sound card (it won't have those exposed wires that you see in my post). The only technical job you'll have to do is affix the mic somewhere... I suggested the earpiece cause that's how it is on most headsets.

After doing a lot of research on this I narrowed my selection down to the rx700's, rx900's, and ath a700's. These all seem to be very good headphones and it was tough to find anything negative about them. In the end I settled on the rx700's because they were much less expensive than the other choices and many people that owned more expensive sets would still go back to their 700's because they prefer the way they sound.

the AD700's are better for gaming than the A700's. The RX900 would be better for gaming, if you were to choose between RX700 and RX900.

How about the Razer Megalodon 7.1 Headset?
post #17 of 20
Word of advice: stop looking at dedicated gaming headsets and set your sights on a real pair of headphones and get a clip-on mic instead. Most of those have subpar sound quality, relying on gimmicky 5.1 "surround sound" features when a good set of stereo cans can do the job better. MUCH better.

That being said, I highly recommend the Audio Technica ATH-AD700's for gaming due to its wide soundstage (perfect for games that rely on positioning and sound cues) as well as great sound quality. It can function as both a gaming headset and your personal music headphone.

I kind of regret the Carcharias now that I know decent quality clip of mics to the cable are available (which mbarry mentioned), the sound quality is ok but I don't ever really listen to music with them, but the electronic that i listen to is very average on it. The headset is really comfortable though. If i would have known that the clip ons were good now I probably would have got some Sennheiser headphones. I really wish I could return it. :/

+1 for AD700 for best comfort and soundstage (= knowing where sounds come from) + the mic of your choice.

But it's light on bass. Dunno if bass is important in metal.
