I need an advice for picking the right headset. I have a PC with a medium quality soundcard (i don't want to spend on it), and i also have a PS4. On ps4 i play fps, on pc mobas, but i like to watch films, and listen music. So basically i need an universal headset that i can use with ps4, pc, mostly good at fps, but also enjoyable with movies. I have used Steelseries siberia v2 for a short time, it wasn't good for fps game, because of the virtual surround. It is ok that i hear where are the enemies come from left or right but not the exact position like front left, or left side behind me. I bought a roccat kave 5.1 ,3 years ago, it was good for fps, movies, but it was too heavy and i couldn't use it with PS4.
I can't decide that i would just go for : - simple headphone for better quality with table microphone, but then i couldn't use microphone for ps4 (not a big issue, usually playing alone)
- usb virtual 5.1 what fits ps4, and pc too, but i can't use the sound card of my comp.
- a simple stereo when again, i can't use microphone on ps4
- the real 5.1 market is so poor, the next level from roccat kave would be tiamat 7.1 which is out of budget. and also couldn't use with ps4
- or buy a cheaper headset/headphone with some remote control like mixamp.
Max budget : 250$
I went to a headphone shop, and listened almost all the high end stuff, doesn't make that much sense from above 200 $, on iphone.
I found an Audio-technica ath-m50 good, but thats only a dj monitoring headphone, doesn't have mic, and i don't know how it would sounds for games.
