I'm just starting to get into headsets and could use advice. I'm trying to self teach what to look for and how to translate specs into the actual affect that I get from the differences, but it would help a lot to have some straight up advice. I've been looking into headsets and can't quite narrow it down.
On a purely comfort level, I can't enjoy the Astro A40's as the cup size is too small for my ears and they end up pinning them down. Everywhere I go I hear bad things about Turtle Beach and Razor, although perhaps you feel differently. I have also tried on, but was unable to get a sound demo, the Tritton 720+ and found that to be quite comfortable. I saw one reviewer on here chastised the Pro+ with the actual 5.1 compared to the 720+ and virtual 7.1. I was interested in the Sennheiser U320, but was disappointed to hear it was only stereo.
To get an idea of how noobish I am to headphones, I tried a pair of Sennheiser HD558s and that was the best I've ever heard. So let that be a benchmark for my exposure to quality audio. I'd appreciate any wisdom regarding the above headsets or others out there that I haven't considered as well as any preferred reading that I should go through.
