  • Headset?

    Alright, here's my problem:

    My mic on my headset got screwed up somehow (not really sure) but now my voice is distorted in game, and only in certain mic positions will it actually pick up my voice. I'm thinking about buying a new headset.

    Ideas?

    USB or a 3.5mm jack? Any preferences for fit, noise canceling, surround sound, price, etc?

      Cheaper is better, but nice quality sound. I don't have a preference for a jack, the one that broke used the 3.5mm, but I don't really care. Other than that, no preference.

        Just a couple threads down from yours still on the front page is this:

        Gaming Headset

        And on page 2, (and I think linked in thread above) is this

        New Headset?

        The 2nd link should really help most.

        Just remember you get what you pay for, but right now is a good time to buy with all the black friday sales, especially if you live near a Fry's or order from newegg.

        And I love your sig..............

          Alright, I am now looking at these three:

          One
          Two
          Three

          I think number One is winning right now.

            I've head great things of the Sennheiser PC151. And, Newegg is selling it for $34.95 as a holiday sale price. What a steal!

                i had a set of plantronics and they did the EXACT same thing that your broken one did. so i would suggest not buying those.

                  Okay, I'm now looking at this:

                  One

                  I plan to order within the next couple of days. (If you're wondering why I'm on Amazon, Newegg is out of stock now...)

                    http://www.steelseries.com/us/products/5hv2/information (Steelsound 5H v2 $40 more than the 4H because it is designed to be dismantled)
                    or
                    http://www.steelseries.com/us/produc...4h/information (Steelsound 4H Technically identical to the 5H as far as audio quality is concerned)

                    Problem solved.

                    I've been using the 4H for 2 years and it has never let me down, absolutely fantastic quality in both speakers and microphone. Don't let the retractable microphone worry you either, I've been extremely forceful with it from time to time and the build quality is supreme. Plus I can wear it for countless hours without my head getting sore at all.

                    Also, USB headsets are more likely to go wrong than if you use direct-input (3.5m jack)
