First I want to say I have been reading many post on this forum and you all look really awesome! So I decided to ask for your help, gamer, audiophile for a project of mine. For my project I'm looking for a headset and a microphone.
So here a few information first:
-I live in Canada, Quebec
-I have a budget of 320$ (including tax)
-I'm old enough to have lived during the turn table, audio cassette, Walkman etc...
-I've had all kind of headphone through the generation of 80s, 90s and up.
-Music always been very important to me both emotionally and in term of quality.
-I sadly have Tinnitus illness but can still hear very good and am still hoping to hear every little detail in music and games.
-I'm a gamer at heart and I do not mean only about First Person Shooter but adventure, stories, drama, romance, action etc..
I am opening a YouTube channel and need a good microphone but I absolutely do not want to waste quality on my sound experience and am looking for a good pair of audiophile headphone for both music and games. I really like to feel the low freq. such as explosion or hits in a game but in music I'm a lover of Orchestral music like Bear McCreary or Two Step from Hell for example so every instrument are important for an amazing journey into music for me.
-I like over the ears headphone so they do not make my ears uncomfortable.
-Open of Close headphone? I have no idea what it does.
-I would use them in a place where I am alone most of the time and not much sound around.
-I do not trust wireless gadget
-My computer has an X-FI soundcard
-Microphone would need to capture my voice but not what would be around me and be useful for commentary.
Important: I am by far not an audiophile tech person like all of you as I do not know much about the tech behind it but I know how a good sound can feel and a bad one I believe for being so much in love with music.
So that's it :) here's my challenge and I cannot wait to see what all of you will suggest.
PS: I had my eye on the Turtle Beach Ear Force XP Seven but I wonder what you all will think about it. And again thank you for your help! <3
