Default Re: Gaming/Audio Recording Headphones?

Thank you so much man. Very helpful and informative. I think I may go with the zalman clip on mic. I can see there is some slight static but I can easily remove that. Also, did you mean the Corsair Hs1? I personally haven't looked into it that in depth, but I couldn't find anything on the corsair sp1. Again, thanks.

Ah, they're called the HS1. I hear good and bad things, but I have no personal experience with them.

Yeah, I had a look at them myself, and they actually look too bulky. But I've got a month to decide. I'll look into it further.

I have the little brother of the Plantronics GameCom 777, the 377 and they are beautiful. Cheaper, but still has amazing sound, even better than my $70 2.1 system...

I had my eyes on them for quite a while and yeah, I heard they are great for audio. Sound I didn't hear much about though. The only reason I probably wont be getting any Gamecom headsets is because of the durability. It is horrible apparently. I myself have a small head, and should be fine with it for as long as it is said to last, but I don't want to take any risks. If you have any arguments to debate about the durability, I would be grateful to listen. As I really need as much information about headphones, clip on mics, headsets and so on. Got one month to become an expert with these.

That's not very surprising.

Lol well when you're talking a $30 set of head phones... That and I'm a poor college student More goes to rent and school than my computers now.

oh and Oimanoi, as for durability, mine are only 4 months old but still look and feel like new. The guys that I game with who recommended them have had theirs for over a year with no sign of wear in sight (so they say).

Making good headphones is much cheaper than making good headphones. It's like buying a bike vs buying a car for the same price. You get much more bang-for-your-buck.

Hmm, I just looked at the Plantronics Gamecom 777 audio quality, and it was amazing. Couldn't hear any static. Though, I have no idea how it sounds. The only reason I am even considering this is because I have a shop literally around the corner that are selling the 777's for around $70, where as the zalman and a good set of headphones are located around 2 hours from my house.

I can do the 2 hours, but I am still really unsure. Oh, and the Audio Technica M50 isn't even sold anywhere in Australian shops, other than online shops, which I cannot participate in. :/ So, I have to either pick a different set of headphones, find the Audio technica or decide on the gamecom. Hmhm. I think it would all come down to sound quality with the gamecom, if I were to buy it. But would it even matter? With me having a horrible on board sound card? Oh and I heard, because the headset is usb, it comes with its own soundcard? Which is probably better than my realtek Hd audio. But I am completely unsure on this.

USB headphones bypass your onboard sound completely. They use their own DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter).

How's the shop's return policy? If they do refunds, you could try them to see if you like them.
