The best gaming headset I've owned

Posted

Pros: Fantastic sound, detachable cable, excellent for music, good looking, compatible with: 360, PS3, and PC

Cons: Volume control, only three settings for bass, uncomfortable at first.

I bought these due to morbid curiosity; Skullcandy made a gaming headset? I figured I try them out because I was getting tired of my X12s, which had replaced my X11s. The SLYRs have now replaced my X12s. One fact to know about these headphones are that they were mostly designed by Astro Gaming, as Skullcandy bought them. This changes everything The sound quality is astounding and the way the headset is built is just perfect. But as you see in my cons list, they are uncomfortable for the first few hours; I believe it could be because your ears are fully encompassed in a smaller, rectangular hole vs the X12s larger round cups. Now after you wear them so that your ears are broken...

Best Earbuds Ever

Posted

Pros: Amazing sound, they look good, great audio jack angle, comes with carrying box.

Cons: Cable can be stiff.

I'd just like to say the audio jack on these are of a very smart design; the cable goes into the jack at a 90 degree angle and doesn't shoot straight out. My last pair of earbuds died because of my hand accidentally smooshing the standard jack. I can already tell that these UE500s will last a very long time. That said, they sound fantastic. I prefer these over my mothers UE600s because the 600s sound...flat? The 500s sound more rich than the 600s. The only thing the 600s are better at are fitting in your ear. But, the overall value you get from the 500s is, in my opinion, better in terms of sound and isolation. If you get these brand new, they include a little box to carry them in...

These things are remarkable. Fantastic for the average gamer, good for the pros.

Pros: Great volume and bass control, excellent mic, somewhat good looking, rotatable ear cuffs for different fits

Cons: The cable is way too long, one side could be slightly out of balance.

    I have been using my X12s for a little more than a year and they never cease to amaze me. It makes gameplay so much more enjoyable because of the enhanced sound and adjustable bass levels. When I'm playing games in Halo, I can always tell what direction my foes are approaching me from because the X12s allow you to hear pretty much everything. They are also comfortable, enough; the tops of your ears may get sore after a long sitting. In my opinion, the X11s (the model wich these replaced) were a bit more comfortable because they where a tad lighter. But the X12's sound quality is by far better.      The only legitimate problem I have with these may be in my...
