Hello World need a hand on my thoughts and decisions
It's been 3 weeks reading and reading, watching reviews my god im so desperate! i got a 350$ budget.. i didnt planned on spend all in headset.. but apparently ill have to, why? because i like investing in tech that will last years! I dont know much about audio..
So i was about to buy the Sennheiser G4ME ZERO(280$) because they are white/black color (match with my whole pc), they have sennheiser sound quality and they are apparently "the best" and doesnt have cons! other the personal cons for example
They are STEREO Headphones! and has a HUGE MIC (WHICH i dont mind while playing) that cant be detachable! So am i spending so much money for a headset that i wont be able to use outside? even at the living room ill look so weird.. moving on..
ASTRO A40 +MIX AMP (250$) good and bad reviews! apparently, but the 7.1 surround sound is apparently AMAZING FOR FPS GAMES, i will be able to use on console (which i dont play much with but is a +) They look good, they are white/black, the MIC is detachable and has many features.
Sennheiser 363D 7.1 (250$) They are apparently SUPER GOOD but they use a USB Dolby thing to produce 7.1.. But they are black, the mic is not detachable, and i got the feeling the 7.1 sucks.. WHY? Because right now i got a Sennheiser PC333D Headset with that same USB 7.1 Dolby thing and IT SUCKS but it could be that the headphones are bad.. they are cheap also..
Now try to understand how i look this the G4ME ZERO are just STEREO for PC, i wont get 7.1 out of them (APPARENTLY) they HAVE AN AMAZING SOUND QUALITY (by the reviews) but STILL they are STEREO, if im going to buy them only for that, i prefer to buy SEnnheiser or BOSE headphones without the MIC and ill be able to use them outside, travelling etc etc..
Now the Astros; My onboard sound card (P8Z77 V-PRO) do not support DDL.. meaning in order to get 7.1 out of that mix amp ill have to buy a sound card lol.. so that'll be like 350-400$
Others 7.1 Headsets are using USB thing.. does the usb sound card need DDL? or DTS? why they are different from the mixamp tech..
