I currently have TB x11s which arent good to begin with, but there also 3 years old and after chewing on the cable for awhile i get occasional popping XD. My mobo is a p8z77-v lk with onboard audio. First thing i want to say is please no 'just get a better sound card comments'. My birthday is coming up, yay
, so if i do have enough money and i dont waste it all on stupid crap ;p then i will definately be getting a soundcard, but for now im focusing on a headset. Soundcard recs are welcome tho! preferable for under 50 dollars. Mainly im asking for headsets tho as the ocn thread on soundcards is fine
First il list my criteria:
I have a farely small head so huge headsets wouldnt be preferable.
Well built and can take some throwing around.
preferably black, white, or blue but other colors are ok
Good mic for voip even though i do have a blue snowflake
would be nice if i can use them on the go with my phone or ipod for music
also an avid music listener mainly techno so bass is important
mic to be either detachable or easy to move out of the way when not in use AKA most of the time most likely
unidirectional mic preferable
WIRED none of that wirelss crappity crap
Don't mind flashiness and vibrant/not maintstream coloring.
Nice LONG cord that doesnt break easy
not turtle beach
AAAAANDDD THE BUDGet... hopefully under 150 us dollars. Would really really really prefer under 120 but then again, with electronics you get what you pay for.
And here is the list of the headsets i was/am looking into:
Steelseries Siberia v2 purples
CM Pulse-r (was almost sure on these but been seeing some rather negative reviews)
*edit* After some reading ive decided to go the headphone route. Since i already have an external mic, i really don't need the headset mic. So recs on headphones anyone?
Thanks for any help with this guys! I've been looking for awhile but i am an INCREDIBLY indecisive person. Currently working on that with my therapist lol but still it's still there, so i ask for help alot from friends and on forums before i buy anything. Thanks!
