Curious what headsets and headphones everyone is using? I personally use a wide variety from Beyerdynamic DT990’s, Sennheiser 598 SE’s, HyperX CloudX, HyperX RevolverS, and HyperX Stingers connected to on-board sound cards, Astro Mixamp TR Pro, and a Denon AVR receiver. Looking at a Schiit Stack for my PC. And a Rode NT-USB Mic when fighting on a PC.
Do you prefer headsets over headpones? How often do you guys use the mic if a headset?
I use a Antlion Mic with a standalone headset instead of getting an all in one gaming headset.
Most Gaming headsets are trash anyways, ether their crap cans or crap mic or both. There are notable exceptions.
Just get what ever headphones are good with you, and a $5 cheap Mic would outdo most headsets.
Some Audiophiles are going for a external sound module over an internal Expansion Sound PCI-E card to avoid EM interference from the motherboard.
Whether or not this this actually gives you better sound is up to debate. Some Audiophiles are weird and goes to huge extremes for good sound.
I use AKG Q701 headphones for things that allow me to use an amplifier. If I’m playing PS4, I have a $25 pair of Xiberia headphones that work really well - better than the over-priced Turtle Beach headset I have.
Deciding on a good quality noise cancelling headphones can make all the difference in your gaming experience, wireless headphones weren’t seen good by the gaming community for a long time but currently is not like that anymore.
News technologies are amazing and today we can enjoy high quality wireless headphones, we are able to play from the couch, bed or anywhere without care about the cable anymore, I would recommend you take a look at these models, good luck!
