I am new to the forums, and also new to the headset/phone world. I have only owned two pair of headsets in my life. One of them broke after 4 months of use ($50 Corsair), and the other one lasted me for about 1 year and 9 months ($60 Turtle Beach x12). I am a little upset about having to change headsets so often, so that's why I came here to ask for advise on a good pair that will last me for as long as I have use for them.
I have been searching around, and I hear that most headsets are crap, and that I should purchase a pair of headphones and a microphone instead. However, most of the "GOOD" headphones I have found are on the same price range as the headsets, if not more expensive, and I really don't believe that BS about most headsets being inferior to headphones.
Anyway, I have a price range of around $200 top (including tax and S&H) , and if possible I would like to get a headset instead of a pair of headphones and a microphone. I have dedicated most of my afternoon looking at different headphones and headsets, and the following ones caught my attention:
Please go through each link if possible; for the most part I am looking for a durable and comfortable headset, with decent sound and microphone (not a big audiophile). If the best bang for my buck is a headphone and a microphone, then so be it, but I would really like to consider all of my options.
Right now the PC 360 looks like the best option, but it sits right on the $200 mark. I don't have a dedicated sound card or anything like that, so I am mainly just looking for something that's comfortable, has a good built quality, and with decent sound(Similar to the Turtle Beach x12 would suffice). Also, since the audio quality is not a big deal for me, I am not willing to pay an extra $50-100 just because of it.
Anyway, any help is welcomed. :)
