Headset or Studio Mic/Headphones for PC Games

Postby Austin2Be » Fri Aug 05, 2016 10:20 pm

Alright so my PX 22 Turtle Beach headphones died very randomly and I'm in the market for a new headset. Problem is the headset choices are so many to choose from. I'm looking to spend 80-200$.

The bigger issue is I've seen studio mics and studio/mixing headphones recommended over gaming headsets since they supposedly have better sound quality. I'm not sure if they beat headsets hands down so was wondering if any PC gamers here had any advice.

These were the choices so far:

a lot of people are asking if a gaming headset their looking at buying is a good one. Well I would say as an audio engineer i can't recommend any of them. The best option (price to performance) is a pair of Headphones from a good Pro Audio company; Shure, Sennheiser, AKG, Audio Technica

For your budget, you can check these brands and their price here: http://www.headphonesunboxed.com/

Most setup are just under $100 and has significantly better audio quality (Headphones and Mic) than any "gaming headphones" its just not as pretty.
