  • Headsets

    I decided I wanted a mic tonight, so I went out and got one only to test it in HL and have the sound quality absolutely blow. I got a suggestion from Aero awhile ago but figured I'd post here aswell as two (three) heads are better than one. I'm not interested in mics or headphones - I want the device to move with me.

    What headset (if any) do you use and love?

    Re: Headsets

    Thank you. Really.

    I've got some POS Logitech that came with change-outable side plate things.... different colors... I threw them away (the colored things). Anyway, the moral of the story is that, if you get something home and hate it, give it a while. It might work with time. I hated this thing when I got it home, but it doesn't suck enough to go buy another one.

Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.

      Plantronics version...60 or something. Its only about 20 bucks now, and offers great sound for the price, for both microphone and speakers. I just wish I could remember the official name. Comfortable to wear, too.

      Edit: Aw, DISCONTINUED!!! I better make sure this one doesn't break then. Here's a picture of it though.

        Re: Headsets

        I was strapped for cash, and was sick of the cheapo $30 headsets from Staples. I found a deal on newegg for these: SENNHEISER PC 150. Needless to say, I am 100% satisfied with these. Excellent bass, crisp sound, and extremely comfortable. But, with the extra long cord (maybe 9 feet or so), I find myself sometimes tangled in it. Maybe I just get to involved with the game, I don't know...

            I love my sennheiser 160's to freaking death. They take a severe beating, sound qualtiy is great, mic is great. I'm very VERY happy I bought them. I've had them for 3 years now.

            Seriously, I'm hoping they break so I can purchase another pair, but that doesn't look like it will happen anytime soon.

              I use a pair of Sony MDR-V150 headphones. Considering I've got some kids that just love to play with daddy's toys when he's not around, they might be too expensive. ;)

                Newegg had some complaints about the sennheisers being uncomfortable with glasses - would anyone be able to confirm or deny that?

                  Squeak, is right I have the sennheiser 165's and love them. Head on over to newegg and check them out.

                    I wear glasses, and they are fine for my head. Note: They were a little "tight" at first, but you can stretch them out. They are uber.

                      Do you have an abnormally small head?


























                      =P No seriously, thanks for the help guys. I'll be watching this thread for awhile to see if there's any new revelations, but I feel much better informed now. TYVM.

                        The kid has busted two pair of headsets for me. Cheapo Logitecs, to be sure - but busted nonetheless.
