I'm new to the forums, and this is my first post - so, hi!
Current soundcard: ASUS Xonar Essence ST (has built-in amp)
I've been using a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50S for a few years and have really enjoyed them. Last night, I got up and tripped over the headphone wire. Long story short, the headphones no longer work so I'm looking to get a new pair of headphones or a headset and looking for recommendations.
First of all, are there any decent headsets out there, or do you basically have to buy a nice pair of headphones, and a separate pair of headset? I already tried using a clip-on mic with my ATH-M50S, but didn't really enjoy that experience.
If there are really no decent headsets out there, then I don't mind purchasing a really good pair of headphones and then a pair of headsets separately.
Do any of you have any recommendations for a good pair of headphones and headsets within my budget?
I realize everyone sees this question pop up multiple times a day, so I really appreciate you taking the time and giving me recommendations. I've been trying to make this decision myself, but there are so many different options and I really want to get the best I can for the amount of money I spend.
