New Mic Help

#1Killean_NuggetsPosted 4/23/2013 3:42:03 PM
So mic is kinda knackered atm. I will be able to get a new cable that will fix it for now but can honestly see it going in the next month or so. Anyway thinking of getting a new mic. So far I have been looking at the following.

TB X12 - Wired. Basically the same as what I have now.

TB PX5 - Wireless. Seen these half price. Surround sound, bluetooth, etc. Apparently there can be issues with them interfering with WiFi, but I don't use that for my Xbox anyway. Is there that much of a difference in clarity between wireless and wired headsets? Wouldn't there also be slightly more delay compared to a wired headset?

Astro A40s - Wired. Heard decent things about them. Would be buying it without the mix amp. is there much of a difference without it? Sound quality, build quality and comfort and good?

Just looking for some suggestions for a new headset for Halo 4 and other games. Choices above are listed in order of price. Any other suggestions are welcome.

What you think is broken when it comes to a game could easily be explained with you being terrible at it.

Turtle Beaches break much too easily. I'd recommend the Astros.

My pair of tritons had a terrible mic, but they were comfy and the sound quality was great.

If you don't want the x12, then astros. I don't like wireless headsets.

Got a pair of X11 just now and tbh they have been ok. Even though there is a crack starting to appear just above one of the speakers I have easily got my moneys worth out of them. One thing I have noticed with them though is that although you can work out where noise is coming from along a horizontal axis, it doesn't work so well along the vertical axis. I presume proper surround sound headsets are better at this?
