Hi guys,

I just picked up a set of G930 wireless gaming headset, I leaned torwards wireless to try the freedom of no cables and based from some good reviews picked them up. Installed the drivers and thought I would give crysis 2 a go at default. I was playing with a set of Ultimate ears 350 earbuds for some time now and going to these was hoping for a better experience, I was left disappointed and want to return them. Any large explosion has static or base levels distort the speaker completly. I had to turn base down (not sub setting) almost to 30% to take that away but then was left with a treble pingy sound. Is there a way to set these up correctly or should I return and get a different set. i was looking for a more surround sound type feeling that I didnt think I could get with stereo, or can I tune my UE 350's better and just stick with them, My sound is coming from the onboard sound on the asus chv motherboard.

$100-130 was my range, I would prefer to stick to shopping at frys due to the employee/family discount I get. Some Bose sets are way cheap (170 down to 100) but thought a deticated gaming set would be better for some reason lol.

Please advise, Im begining to think I made a mistake going with a gaming set.

Thanks

I owned a G930 and it was one of the worst headsets I have ever owned. My $30 outperforms it in terms of music and sound quality. That thing is seriously a piece of junk.

Even the wireless was horrible. It constantly interfered with my other 2.4GHz devices.

Go return it ASAP and pickup a pair of AD700's.

Honestly I own the g930 and I would not recommend it to anyone. The win 7 drivers are horrid I need to reinstall them everytime I restart to get the 7.1 surround working.

Buy high quality headphones and a creative Xtremegamer/Titanium/Titanium HD. CMSS-3D is very good surround sound.
