As the title says. Right now I'm a little paranoid about bothering friends through mumble or in-game comm with the kiddies making background noise.
My setup is an Asus Xonar Essence STX with some Sennheiser PC350s. I used to listen to more music but I just don't have much time anymore and I use my audio equipment mainly for gaming these days. I feel like a change but all my research points back to the PC350s. I've been wearing that model headphone for 7 years now, surely there's something better by now...
I'm looking for:
-mic that blocks out background noise better than what I have or advice on settings/physicality that can help
-highest quality possible
-good mids/highs (bass is a bonus as long as the mids/highs are clear)
-budget not a concern
If anyone has information about a way to macro a mute button on my kb I'd really appreciate them. The MMX 300s are interesting but lack that mute and I've read they pick up more background noise than the PC350s.
I appreciate any feedback, but I'd prefer first-hand knowledge. I've been reading here for years but this is my first post. Thanks for all the years of info.
EDIT: I should clarify this is for PC gaming.
EDIT2: I'm in the stereo headphone and let the game/drivers do the surround sound camp.
