Everyone should go buy ESO and join me. That'll help.

 

The ESO beta just did NOT do it for me.  I think I'm burnt out on MMO's.  Wildstar looks promising but not different enough to get me excited.  I'd take a buddy key if anyone's preordered though.  :-D

You have a big black boxy thing that should sell for about $350ish. Sell that and build a budget gaming machine. ;)

As someone who has played since September, the game has polished a lot since beta. I have fellow writers who utterly despised the beta week who are now enjoying the game implicitly. But I can understand resistance if you didn't enjoy the beta experience.

 

As for Wildstar, I managed to play at PAX East and spend some time with part of the development team. That game does show some real promise. I feel it could potentially capture WoW's target audience.

Isn't ESO coming out for PS4 too?

post #23029 of 37962
Yes, but I just don't game enough like I used to. Buying an MMO that will charge me a monthly fee makes no sense at this time.

And neither does a gaming PC! tongue.gif

But... a console is just a dedicated gaming PC with universally standardized specs...

post #23031 of 37962
But... this console is something I already have... which replaced my last console. I only own two games, because they're all I have time to play.

I'm not even pre-ordering watch dogs (something Ive been waiting for since announcement) because I know I won't have time. I'll just wait to borrow it when I do...

Not gon' work Axel tongue.gif

I'll stick to going broke on headphones lol

When i'm using my "portable" mini-ITX pc in my room i use a Xonar U3 and HD598, for music i use Fiio X3 and HD598 and now i need a wireless headset with mic when i use my PC in the living room (80% of the time)

 

My budged is around 300 euros, what is the best option?

 

 

 

Thanks to anyone that will help!

 

P.S. just an info... i feel the HD598 a little inadequate with basses for gaming!

bump!

 

Anyone have an opinion about this? there are too mani options and different opinion about this on the net... for example yesterday i got an offer for Astro A50 used very little for 5 months at 200 euros and initially i was going to buy it because of the great reviews... but then i found out that audiophile around the word say that they are crap... (even Mad Lust Envy say that) so i really can't decide... i don't trust websites reviews anymore!

Have you even looked through the front page? If I can recall, there's a wireless headset that MLE recommends for those that really need a wireless headset. I forgot the name of 'em... maybe on purpose...

I think i read all the from page and in the top choices none of the headphones there are listed as wireless... maybe i missed something? i thought MLE didn't suggest nay wireless device because he hates them all ^^.

 

Anyone tried the Steelseries H wireless? they are quite new...

 

Maybe it's better if i search for a wireless amp like the Astro A40 mix amp and connect my HD598 to it? wouldn't be a lot comfortable...

 

Actually i tried to buy a pair of Razer Chimaera stereo for only 50 euros (used, 130 euros is the retail price) and the basses are ok (explosions are great), mid and trebles are veiled a lot and lastly the overall comfort is CRAP! i don't know who designed this headset but it's totally mad! Maybe because i'm bald but i miss at least 4/5 cm to reach the headband!!! it's like they are designed for south park aliens!!!

Go read the section on the Skullcandy PLYR1 again.  You may also want to search the thread for keywords like "wireless", "steelseries", etc.

post #23036 of 37962

Antlion Modmic 4.0's should be getting delivered at the beginning of May. Anyone looking for a mic may want to look out for the pre-orders when they begin.

Considering I use the Mixamp 5.8 which essentially makes all headphones wireless, I don't know where you came up with that. I've only owned/heard two wireless headphones: the A50 and PLYR1. I prefer the PLYR1, which I gave a favorable review. I even had some months debating on whether I should get the Sennheiser RS220 or not, because being completely wireless is very liberating. Too bad it has a lot of negative reviews on it's functionality.

And I literally put *wireless headset* on the headphone listings...

You are right, but sadly no way to find those in Italy :(

Whops i read all the page at late night i think i missed something, sorry :(

 

Yesterday i got this offer for A50 for 200 euros so i gone mad searching infos on the web and found you wonderful list of reviews.

 

Seems like i'll drop for now the idea of a wireless headset, unless someone decide to create an open headset with mic and HD598 sound quality with more basses... i hate compromises :/

Nice guide!

Was wondering to buy the k712 and the schiit magni, have you tried this combination, if so can you recommend it :)?
