Sorry if all of you thought I had a product to share, but it's actually going to be a question instead of a hook to introduce an awesome product.
I play CS:GO, and the sound engine is meh.
I used Siberia V2s for a while and I barely could here any footsteps in the game. Everything was too bassy, it seemed like it muffled all the footsteps..
I recently did some research and I heard AD700x's were great for positional audio, so I picked up a headset version, ATH-ADG1, since it was super cheap ($240).
I also just bought a Creative Sound Blaster Z to pair w/ my ATH-ADG1 and I really like the settings and positional audio I'm getting from playing the game. The mic on the ADG1 was really clear when I used my on-board sound, but when I plugged it in the Sound Blaster Z, the mic quality decreased a lot (not sure why..), which is why I'm looking for a new headset/headphone. The ATH-ADG1 is really uncomfortable for me as well.
Can anyone recommend some excellent headphones/headsets to play CS:GO with? Closed or Open. I don't have a preference tbh. I just want the best sound setup I could get, hopefully under $300.
I'm really new to the audiophile scene since I've used over hyped gaming hardware all my life until now, so I hope someone could help me out.
Thanks in advance!
