Headset/Wireless Headset

Post by TempSoul » Sun Nov 10, 2013 11:48 pm

Hey guys,

Looking for a new headset to use for gaming/music lounging. I'm skipping the bs with gaming headsets cause we all know they are a rip. Going to bypass gaming headsets and just get a http://bit.ly/VsM8x1 antlion boom mic to pick up the slack. I'm hoping to get a new headset that is around 80 dollars or less, willing to get up in price it if's worth it.

So I'm hoping to get some recommendation in good headsets with a balance ranged of sounds. Maybe if anyone knows a good wireless headset I would like a recommendation in that cause I would love that freedom of usage.

I'mma be a fan boy here and tell you what I use
Skullcandy Slyr's
Wonderful over ear headset, with usb jack that can act as your main Speaker and Mic form. It has a fold in mic on the left ear and has good range, plus an equalizer for your suited taste

The installation and how to work it is a tad confusing [It's all USB no headphone jack needed, and has so many wires since it's also PS3 and XBOX capable.] But once you situate it it's a good set for your price range.

Monoprice has some of the best cheap headphones in terms of audio quality, otherwise Audio Technica or similar studio monitor headphones will give the best overall sound reproduction. This means it won't be bass heavy and tend to reproduce sound as it was meant, this can make certain music sound flat and uninteresting like Rap and Hip Hop. Games also rely on bass for feel, even though it often drowns out other noises making it harder to use audio as a way to make sure someone isn't sneaking up on you.

These are the ones I use for gaming/PC work, I use a lavalier mic for voice.
