  • Headset help

    Well, the mic on my headset kicked the bucket last night. It was a no-name brand 5.1 ch surround sound headset that offered great sound, but it was built very shoddy. Now I'm looking for something a little more reliable. I've found through some research that Sennheiser is a pretty respected company when it comes to audio equipment in general. I found a decent buy on one of their headsets on Newegg.

    I'm trying to keep the price under $50. Anyone have any other recommendations?

    I don't know how good Sennheiser headsets are but there headphones sound great. I own 2 pairs of Sennheiser headphones. I'd say go with the ones you posted.

      I have that exact headset. It's fine for gaming.

        I have These and they have served me well for over a year with no problems whatsoever, Very comfortable, mic is crystal clear and they sound great.

          I've got a pair of Altec Lansings that I've had for over 5mos w/no probs whatsoever. If you've got a Best Buy around (I'd be surprised if you didn't) I'd recommend something like this.

            Thanks for all the feedback guys.

            Clawhammer, do you have any problems hearing directional sound with the studio headset? I work at a radio station and ours (Shure brand) don't seem to respond well to surround-sound effects.

              An update, I think I found a fix for my problem. Found it in another thread actually-

              Very handy, I had no idea these even existed.

                The Sennheiser PC150 is a fine headset, I have the one that is a step up the PC160. Very durable.

                  I haven't had a problems w/surround on this headset. So far it seems to work fine for me.

                    Evo, what mic did you decide to get? How is it working for you? I think my mic just went out today and I've tried drivers, rebooting etc. Still nothing. Now I'm looking to replace.

                      I'd love a wireless stereo headset with mic and "bud" earpieces. I hate getting up from my chair fast to answer the door or deal with something in the kitchen and almost get my ears torn off when I reach the end of the cord. :p
