After doing quite a bit of research, these seem to be the best options: G4ME ZERO/- One, Logitech G633/- G933 Spectrum Artemis, Audio Technica ATH AD 700x/- 900x. How does they in general vary from each other? And which of those do you think would be the best one?

If you live in the US, based on current Amazon pricing, your best choice by far from within that list would be the Audio Technicas. They are not only cheaper than the others on the list, but also both superior comfort and audio quality. They may be the only ones on your list that aren't marketed for gamers, but they actually win there too, offering the largest soundstage of the bunch.

Keep in mind the AD-700x/900x is open, while the A-700x/900x (no D) is closed. They each have their strengths and weaknesses, so you will have to choose based on personal preference / usage. They are also the only ones that do NOT come with a built in mic. This is a good thing, since built in mics are always incredibly overpriced and just add another point of failure that will shorten the lifespan of your headphone investment, but it does mean you will have to pick up a separate mic if you want to be able to use voice communications, youtube recordings, etc (unless of course you already have one).

They're basically the same aside from the styling and the microphone. The mic on the ADG1 is actually really high end for an attached boom mic, probably the highest quality you'll find on any headset, but is still isn't worth anything close to the $150-250 (Amazon) price difference between the 700X and the ADG1.

For the price difference, you can get a proper professional mic, stand, shock mount, and pop filter. Alternatively if you just want something good enough to serve for VoIP and in game voice comms, you can upgrade the headphones to the 900X level, and pair it with a cheap $7 zalman clip on mic, or a $35 antlion modmic, and still save a decent chunk of money.

I see I see, hmmh, think I'll go for ADG1, for aesthetical reasons, lol. Thanks for the (fast) replies ~
