They where uncomfortable, built poorly, and I don't even use the microphone much anyway.
Still curious if they improved over the years since it's been awhile
Headsets have been improving steadily over the last few years and it is likely that one day the blanket statement of "gaming headsets suck" will no longer be true. I personally like to keep my knowlege up to date in this regard and am less dismissive of headsets. Basically, I'm not going to condemn a product with no knowlege of it.
Raceroom does have very good sound, however I will not support F2P projects so I'll never get to play it.
I've not played PCARS for a few months but that game never really left beta. I doubt they'll iron out all the problems before abandoning it for PCARS 2, so PCARS 2 is certainly not going to be a day one purchase for me. I have a number of complaints about PCARS that if repeated in the sequel might make me skip it altogether.
Yeah my reply to the headsets was just sarcasm lol but I do agree that "gaming" headsets have been improving as of late but that's also mainly because some of them are rebrands of a headphone and then just attaching a mic to it. Nothing wrong with that but it should be noted. However, some of those in house made headsets do seem to be improving like the Logitech G933 although it does have its flaws and its too flashy for my taste (Im 30 years old, I need to keep it classy not swag), it is still a solid headset to purchase for aroun $150.
Yeah, RaceRoom micro-transactions isn't what I like about it. Such a shame they had to go that route compared to previous games like WTCC 2007 or 2008 as well as other that felt to me, very complete.
PCARS....well it has gotten better I say but I do agree, still needs a lot of polishing up and for them to start on PCARS 2 which will probably be announced officially next year, is going to be bad for the PCARS community. It's sad that even on the forums, peoples complaints and stuff are being deleted off the forums and users are sometimes banned from the forums.
I wont be buying the next PCARS 2, nope. So much marketing went into that game that Im very sure most reviewers of the game got paid to say good things about it, with the exception of a few of course.
Long live Assetto Corsa, I can't get enough of that sim. I just hope they get their MP aspect running nicely and do some sort of cross-platform multilplayer so we can race the console peasants as well. Would make things very interesting given that some youtuber's have already tried the console version of Assetto Corsa and have said that it feels the same as on PC. Kunos is doing great work and listening to their fans and that is what people want....for the developers to listen to their players. And I believe the game will have full support until 2020, will get new DLC and upgrade in graphics and sound as time goes by.
Assetto Corsa just gives great quality for the price you pay for.
lol I was kidding about the console peasants. Im a console peasant myself as well. Got the PS4 right here lol
wait, does that make me a hybrid? PC/Console peasant? PConsole? PCP.....wait thats a drug lol
For some reason I can't edit my post and getting a server error message....anyone getting that as well?
Well before I forget, does anyone know where I can get the adapter to use my Vmoda boom pro mic with my AKG K7XX? I want to start using them more.
For some reason, as much as I like my bass, the bass in my Fidelio X2 isn't as yummy as I initially though it was. I started using my K7XX again and I like the clarity more on them while the bass is less than the X2, the soundstage and imaging is better on the K7XX, like it gives me that balance of immersion while still being a great headphone for competitive gaming. I think I made up my mind about using my K7XX as a daily on my PC and the X2 on the PS4 or for music on certain genres. For music, the K7XX doesn't give that oomph in music compared to the X2, especially in EDM or music that has a lot of bass. The K7XX however works well with Hans Zimmer's music, John Williams, etc, etc.
Its funny how I loved the X1/X2 for the longest but somehow started losing some interest in it. I think that after I use my K7XX for another year or so, I might make the jump to an HD800 or HD800S.....or I could go with something around the $500 dollar range, of which I still have no options to choose from in that price range.
Yeah I recall Zombie making them but then stopped for obvious reasons (I think his prototypes were gone missing and/or some didn't pay upfront?). PETEREK? Can not recall his name but a linky would be helpful, TIA
Cool. Thank you
