I've gotten through my audio life by purchasing "gaming" headphones. (Razor, Logitech, etc.) I feel like I'm ready to try something more, especially since my current headphones (Logitech G90) are failing. I do not have a dedicated sound card or amplifier, and am not looking to purchase one unless absolutely needed. This is my motherboard.
I do not need a ridiculously good sounding headset, just one that sounds as good or better than my current Logitech G930. I assume this isn't hard to do, since it's mostly a gimmicky gaming headset.
Directional audio is very important to me as well, since I will be playing a lot of PC FPS games. I know the G930 had a "fake" surround sound driver on it. Is there any way to replicate something similar with another set of headphones? Or would I need a dedicated sound card and lots of other things to do that?
I do not care if it has any features such as a built in mic, buttons, or anything of the sort. All I am looking for is good sound quality. I will be mainly be playing video games (FPS, RPG, RTS) and listening to music. (Rock) Bass does not matter that much to me, as long as it is noticeable. I am satisfied with the sound quality of my G930, but I assume I am able to get just as good, if not better, sound quality from another headset.
I am looking for a comfortable full-sized headphone. I'm not sure if this is the right term to use, but I am comfortable with the ear pieces of the G930. I like my ears being surrounded and 'closed off' if that makes any sense. I would not like to spend more than $200, but am willing to go up to about $210-$220, but only if it's a REALLY good headset.
I hope that this community can help me out, as I'm not very knowledgeable about this kind of thing.
