I am researching new headset /w mics for online gaming for the PC and console (PS3). I have read countless reviews and everyone that owns a pair seems to be happy with theirs. I understand that comfort is something that is personal preference, but I am looking for sound/quality recommendations. However if it helps I have a Flinestone head, so I need something that will not cause a canyon sized dent.
What I am looking for is someone that is knowledgeable with 1) the specs part 2) reviews 3) what looks to be worth while for a good time period. I do not want a pair that is outdated in a year or two. Basically good comparison/contrast between the main headset competitors (Turtle Beach [if they make one for both PC AND PS3], Trittons, Sharkoon...). Being that I am not well versed in headsets (first attempt to get a good pair) or the specs, I am hoping for a basic breakdown. At least a recommendation list.
My budget is between 120-150 maybe squeeze to 160ish for a "next step up" model.
I have read some people like the legit 8 speaker surround sound, but some say the sound of the simulated surround sound is better. Some recommend a mini amp. I would rather voice/game sound control with mic mute all in one package. I would love wireless, but I do not see a product out there that fits my needs.
Basically I want a bad *** headset that works with my PC and PS3 with good sound quality and sound adjustable. I do not want to shell out decent money (for me at least) and get a overpriced hunker.
With some research done I came across these:
Not sure if this will help or be needed:
Any help, please, would be appreciated. I am affraid of making an expensive/poor decision.
