Hello everyone, first thing I would like to say is thank you for taking time to look at this thread, I am very much a noob when it comes to audio equipment and quality.
I have recently started a new job at a local LAN center casting Esport games throughout the week and I am trying to find a good solution for my at home system and also one I can bring with me into work.
As of now I have been using the audio technica ath-m50's for sound with my onboard sound card, also with a h100 microphone pluged in via usb to my computer. There is a lot of background noise at the moment I am sure that is due to the type of microphone that is in the h100.
Firstly I would like to know what you would consider a good set headset (with attached microphone), I dont have a price range at the moment but I really want good microphone quality.
Secondly What should I be pluging it into? a DAC or a sound card? Are there DAC's with microphone jacks that actually help to improve the sound? (this will be for my home setup)
Lastly what should I do when I want to bring the headset into work? Should I plug directly into the onboard or bring a DAC?
We livestream on twitch.tv and also record all sessions to be uploaded to youtube.
Again thank you for your time,
