I am in the market for some new headphones and I'm looking for some suggestions of some headsets or headphone and microphone combos set ups to look in to. I have been watching the forums here off and on and the people here understand quality unlike many of the review on headset I have read on gaming websites or reviews from other people working at call centers. Many of them have never experienced good sounding headphones and freak out at paying more than $80 for a set, so how could they give me the information I want? This is why I am coming here to the guys who will point me to the better ones.
At home I am currently using Presonus HD7 with a nameless mic taped to the wire. I love the headphones, the base is great and the semi block out surrounding noise but someone can still get my attention without tapping me.
At work I am using a nameless $5 dollar headphone and mic set that was handed down from other co-workers.
What I want is something that sounds great like the HD7 but are more comfortable since I am wearing these between 10-12 hours (only work 4 days at a time). The issue I have with the HD7 is that the padding on the outside is slightly too thin so the inside padding makes my ears sore after 5 hours.
Also need a Clear mic that will pick up my voice but not the whole office (it does get loud to).
Budget $200 for the combo.
Interface options usb and standard aux for a pc (I think 3.5mm is what is called). Preference on aux
Bonus, I would like wireless option when I am working calls, not wireless headset (cause that will kill any thing I put into my home system when I start getting that together) When I say wireless option I mean some sort of box I can strap to my belt and plug aux jacks into and have another receiver attached to the computer. But this wireless converter is not part of the budget I set above.
