Hello everybody, my name's Andy and I'm from the UK.
A couple of weeks ago, my Turtle Beach PX21's left earcup kicked the bucket and I took it back to the shop for a new one. I got a new one, but found a fault on it the first time I plugged it in. Basically, whenever the three and a half mil jack is plugged in, I get farting noises and weird staticky-feedbacky sorts of sounds.
I've got fed up with Turtle Beach's build quality, and as I was going to go and choose another headset I realised that I don't actually want a specifically gaming-marketed product. I also don't really need the mic built in, as I have a webcam mic I can use. I play the violin and love pretty much every genre of music apart from rap, and I know that headsets are known for having disappointing sound quality.
So my call for recommendations is for a pair of headphones for around £40 to £60 that has better sound quality than the PX21, and is suitable for gaming and music. I use the onboard sound of an ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3, so if you think I should get a cheapish sound card then please say.
Finally, the most important thing for me is comfort.
I hope that I haven't been too picky for my price point, and that it isn't too awkward to make recommendations.
Thanks in advance.
