    (Really) budget ( strictly < $15 ) headset for calls with a long cable

    Hi! I don't know if someone is concerned about such things on this forum, but I'm looking for a very budget headset for Zoom, Slack, etc. A long cable is very preferable. I would prefer a better mic rather than better drivers. I don't need durability, I hope they fall apart after 6 months (if...

    Looking for Headset with Great Sound

    Hello, I am looking for headphones with a mic that sounds decent, which also sounds very good when listening to music. I've noticed with a lot of these "gaming" headsets that bass/mids sound pretty weak or muddy, or they have some weird eq that poorly affects music. The mic should be...

    Open vs closed headphones

    I recently acquired a 'open back' PC gaming headset, the Sennheiser PC363D. While the microphone is top notch, I'm not entirely satisfied with the drivers. They are supposed to be the same drivers as the HD 558/598 and to provide a similarly wide soundstage. But they don't sound open and airy...
