Hi everyone, I'm a complete layman when it comes to high-quality sound setups, but I've been using a crappy-ass headset with a top-of-the-line gaming rig for about a year now, and the lack of sound quality is really starting to become noticeable.
What I'm looking for is a setup that provides a nice balance of treble, bass, and mids (maybe a little extra bass to get those 'thumps' when a grenade blows near me, but not enough to drown out the rest of the sound and turn my room into a localized earthquake).
Preferably something that's easy to set-up, in other words the less accessories needed the better (I've noticed a lot of people on these forums using amps and other smaller devices whose function are completely unknown to me). I wouldn't mind having to set up one amp if the change in quality would be considerable, however.
My target budget is around $300-400. I could go for 400-500 if it makes enough of a difference to be worth it.
So, any ideas?
