post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm considering to get a good headset, completely noob here and i can't try them when purchasing, so i need your help!

HD595? AD700 ? or any better suggestion ?
what i need a GOOD SOUND QUALITY for music movie and gaming, not necessary to strong bass but GOOD SOUND QUALITY!

and 1 more question , will it be a big difference with or without an additional sound card ? or get a good headset is enough for that ?
THNX FOR HELPING GUYS!

I've been satisfied with my G930. The sound quality is reasonable, but the biggest difference for me is the fact that it is wireless, and simply works great that way. It doesn't go into standby every five minutes, and if I charge the battery overnight it usually lasts through a day of consistant use. The buttons on the side are convenient, too.
I find the sound quality more than adequate, although I've seen some reviewers saying there are competitors with better sound quality, and from what I know of Logitech, that may be true. Who cares though, honestly.

AD700s are pretty awesome all around except for bass. Bass is it's only weak spot and it really fails hard on bass. If you can live without that, it does everything else really well, especially gaming and classical music.

A sound card I would say is a must.

a700 will be better choice you think ? i just don't need too heavy bass thing.
i love mookster's suggestion lol ,there's too many cable on my desk.
omg.. so many choices... if the wired headset quality is far better than wireless, i'll go with wired any others suggestion guys ?

Wired always better than wireless, unless the wired are crappy. Ad700 or a700 are better.

the standard price is around ~US$100
A soundcard will always be beneficial.
What's your total budget?
