    Looking to buy a new headset
    « on: May 18, 2014, 11:13:29 AM »
    Hi everyone,

    So I've decided to go and buy a new headset after my current one is getting a bit dodgy in some aspects.

    I am limited to buying from this website: http://www.pccasegear.com
    and I am quite confident in buying one of two Corsair headsets. I'm completely indecisive of which one though. One is a direct USB connection, and the other one is analogue that I would use with my Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer sound card.

    First option: Corsair Vengeance 1500 v2 Dolby 7.1 USB Headset
    (Note that this is virtual 7.1 surround sound with Dolby software)

    Second option: Corsair Vengeance 1400 Analog Headset
    (Note that this is stereo only)

    My main concern is whether or not it is better to get the more recent 1500 model or the older 1400 model that I could use with my sound card.

    I'm also open to suggestions of other headsets, although they need to be worth less than $110 on the website I mentioned. I'll be using the headset for the entire range of things from gaming to movies to music. I will be using the mic every day as well.

      i dont know if this is out of your price range but i can recomend the Corsair Vengeance 2100 iv tried them and i know a happy custome that used them for a long time
      and i can also recomend the Logitech G930 ones if the price isint a problem (those are siting on my head right now)

      the reason i have for recomending those are that there wireless and for me thats a huge bonus as i have about 10 expensive wired ones all broken and eavry time its the same thing, that the wire just where it goes into the headpones started glitching and thay brake

      plus its a huge bonus that i can walk aroung my whole house with the headphones on and chat with ppl and lisen to music

      but incase these arent in your price range id recomend the Corsair Vengeance 1500 v2 one out of the 2 you were looking at and dont worry about them having a usb and not using your sound card

      id recomend the Logitech G35 Headset aswell as a wired alternetive becos thay are almost exakly like the G930 exept wired and both these have exelent sound and the best thing i like is that the ears fit into the headpones so the pads on them are not presing on you ears and isolate sound frome the outeside realy well plus the pads themselves are realy soft and therefore enables long time use of the headphones without geting sore and iritated ears

      id also like to recomend the Logitech G430 Headset and the for the same reson i recomend the G35 it has good sound and those nice soft and big earpads for extended use  ;D

      these are all recomeded with gaming in mind thoug  ;D
