For the most part I'd rather play sans a headset using speakers, but the missus I think is tired of hearing me and friends that I'm chatting with at odd hours of the morning.
I had a higher end Sennheiser and it worked ok, but I believe I have killed it and I wasn't very happy with the flimsy mic boom. So I decided to try to do a bit more research before plunking down some coin on one.
I was looking at the Beyerdynamic MMX 300, but that fucker the way I want it weighs in at close to $500. I was also looking at the Astro's and Psyko lines... Turtle beach looked kinda meh' to me, but I really don't know. Corsair looked OK as well as the Steelseries.... gah.
Oh, and if anyone knows, I tried to find out the difference between leather/faux-leather/felt like earcups and which would be more comfortable/cooler to use. I remember the Sennheisers getting hot as hell on my noggin. Suggestions?
I welcome any suggestions (for headsets and maybe even a possible sound card upgrade). I've currently got a creative labs sound card or something or other that will push 5.1. Does anyone use one of those 'mix amp' thing in conjunction with yer' headset? What do you guys recommend/use?
