Basically using it mainly for gaming however, rather than recording.
My really old Headphones broke, so replaced them with the Logitech G35. But currently hating them. I'm looking to return the Logitech G35 Headset due to it using USB and bypassing my sound card. It also has an issue with making a low 'eeeeeee' sound in the left speaker when the microphone is active but not being used. I also want to get something real which makes good use of my audiophile hardware.
I have a Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD audiophile sound card which I love, hate everything 'Sound Blaster' except for this!
It has either 3.5mm Mini Plug Digital Optical or standard 3.5 mm jacks as an option. Produces 5.1 Dolby Digital Live or DTS Connect (currently set on).
Currently I have interest in either:
Beyerdynamic MMX 300-II - which has Audiophile Stereo 2.0, can this still sound surround?
Turtle Beach Ear Force XP SEVEN - which I might be able to use the Digital Optical Dolby 5.1, would this be better due to my card?
similar as above, but maybe separate Headphones from microphone?
Anyone else also use their Headphones for gaming purposes, familiar with these or something better? Thanks in advance!
