Need Headset/Mic Recommendation Desperately!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I hope I've posted this in the right forum! I apologise if not!

I talk to a lot of people over skype, I run a radio show and I make youtube videos. I had been using Turtle Beach Earforce X11s and was thinking about upgrading to something a bit higher quality.

Well my decision has been made for me, since my leads on the X11s have just died.

I need a high quality headset in terms of both sound and recording.

However, I don't know much about headsets these days, and would like some advice! I've heard good things about Tritons, but which model?



Anyway, all feedback is greatly appreciated!

If you're dead set on getting "gaming" headphones, prepare for a storm. Otherwise, I recommend the JVC HA-RX900s with a Zalman clip-on mic.

I've been offered a pair of Corsair HS1 by my friend who works in an independent computer shop for £51 - Are they good, and is this a good price?

Okay I think I've settled on a steelseries 7H - Any recommendations? I appreciate all of the help so far, and have looked into those products and prices.
