Gaming Headsets

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well i can see that some of the audiophile community hate gaming headsets in general, but are they really THAT bad? I recently got hooked n want to join this wondeful audiophile community after a listen to my friends W4rs, but are gaming headsets really all that ****ty? I have a pair of Steelseries 7Hs n i feel they sound great, even better than my IEMs (duh~) but are gaming headsets ALL ****ty or ate there some exceptions like my 7H?

The steelseries is bonkerly bad. Once you listen to real headphones you will hear.

 

Buy a soundcard, e.g soundlbaster Z is a good budget option or asus essense stx and a good headphone.. e.g philips fidelio x1 and you will be blown ayway

Most gaming headsets are crap. Even those that says it has 5 speakers in each ear with a dedicated subwoofer. It's all marketing gimmicks.

 

There are some exceptions like the sennheiser pc360 (cuz its from sennheiser duh!)

 

But usually, open headphone from a legitimate audio company with a separate mic are going to be much much better. If you get a headphone with a detachable 3.5mm cable like the philips x1, then you can get something like the vmoda boom pro if you don't like separate/clip on mics.
