Sorry for creating a thread and ask such a stupid question but honestly i need help on choosing this headset or not.
I currently have the Turtle Beach Z6A (MW3 Charlie) and it has been great until today when the same problem with the mic drive me crazy.
The mic doesn't respond well and create much static noise when you move the cable around (from the AMP to the headset), this problem is very common with this series (i have had totally 5 RMAs for this headset with Turtle Beach for the same problem). So now, i decide to say good bye to this one because i am out of warranty for it and it is time for a new headset.
Searching around, i found that Roccat makes a decent surround headset (biggest selling point, i am a hardcore FPS PC gamer) "Kave". I have been reading reviews and most of them are mixed with "not good for Music listening" or just "Terrible with both Music and Movies". The thing is, i understand that gaming headsets are not designed for music listening and i do take that in considering when i bought the Z6A (which is true 5.1) and i don't know what is the measurement of "being terrible or bad" for those guys who reviewed the Kave (people have different ears and music of choice)
Myself, i do listening to music a lot but i am not Audio Professional or something like that to have a desire of having a Studio-quality Stereo Headset (you probably know what i mean). The Z6A turn out to be great (for me) to listen to music despite of being called "a gaming headset". I mean if i have to grade it in the scale of 10, i would give it an 8.5/10 for the Z6A (clear voice + warm bass is all i need, i don't need bass to be overwhelmed).
About the Roccat, i want to ask about the Music listening experience of people if you guys have one here, how do you guys grade it ? And if you can compare it with the Z6A that would be great. I don't doubt the ability of the Kave in gaming , but Music is something to consider because i don't want to have a headset which is "flat-out" when listening to music. I have an external sound card so you guys don't have to worry about me having the same experience on both Headset because of using internal sound card.
PS: I do understand that i am a new member, so i might miss something out in this forum, if you know some thread with the same question or something like that, please let me know
