  • 5.1 Headsets (alternatives to medusa's)

    So I'm considering getting a new pair of 5.1 headphones after having problems with my Medusa 5.1's. Anyone have any first hand experience with any alternatives?

    I can tell you first hand, these sound amazing. My brother owns them. Also they are compatible with the 360.

      I have the Trittons. Ilke them. I don't use the amplifier that came with it though. Too much hiss for my taste. They work fine with my Audigy 2 gamer card.

        Ditto on what Dick said. Too much hissing with the amplifier. A shame cause I really liked the bass rumble feature which is only available through the amp. Overall I'm pleased with them. A bit pricey and poor bass response, but it sounds like the Medusa's are similar in that respect. I'm running the Audigy 2 Plat.

          I don't recall any hissing noise with the little blue box, not while playing the 360 anyways. I guess there is no perfect headset these days?

            Whiskey, why are you looking for a new headset when they are replacing the headsets for free?

              Whiskey, I just read your last post about your headphones and understand. I just ordered my headsets yesterday before I saw all these posts! Hoping I'm issue free with mine.

              Though Squinty did give it a good review so perhaps all hope is not lost.

                Yeah... Unless I see something better, I'm going to get a another set (for free). But since I'm returning them, I figured I'd see what else is out there, since I do have two small complaints about them (aside from the apparent quality issues):

                1) They are not Hi-Fi headphones... They sound fantastic in-game, but I wouldn't use them to listen to music - I've heard a better response from ear-bud style headphones.

                2) They aren't very well sealed - meaning I can hear TV sounds while gaming, and my wife can hear you crazy bastards while she's watching TV :D

                  I have Zalman headphones and they are preaty good. Only downside is there is no mic (there is a version that come with a microphone but its a crappy clip mic).

                    Re: 5.1 Headsets (alternatives to medusa's)

                    I went ahead and ordered a pair of the Tritton AX360's from newegg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826235001

                    Should arrive Friday. I'll play-test them against the Medusa's and return the loser.... I'll post my findings.

                      Whiskey, this means you need to go ahead and order a 360 to. ;)

                        Do let us know. I'm getting tired of not having any sound from my rear left speaker in my set. The only downside is those ones are also a bit pricey. Crap.

                          You people better be careful, I started reading this forum and the first thing you know here I am buying the Medusa headset. It maybe to late already but if it's not carefully back out of this forum and don't come back. You've been warned.

                          PS: I really like my Medusa and have not had any problems.

                            Yeah - they're about the same cost... But since I already shelled out the dough for one set, I'm golden... either I exchange the broken Medusa's for a new set or just get the cash back and apply it to the Tritton's.

                              By far, the Zalmans are the cheapest but it's not a true headset. You'll have to find a way to attach a microphone (sticky velcro for me, others use clips and such). They sound pretty good but I'm no audiophile. I've been using mine for about a year without any problems. All of my closest gaming friends use them and have been satisfied.

                              - It's who you game with.
