Considering buying a gaming headset, help

#1TorturalPosted 2/7/2014 4:16:36 PM
So I have never bought any gaming headsets, but after giving some thought decided to buy ones. If someone who has more experience with them can recommend one gladly appreciate it. Was considering the Turtle Beach since are the one most people talk about, but I have seen negative stuff about them here. Also saw in another topic about the Polka Audio 4shots which seems nice. Right now does are the ones I'm considering, but any other recommendation is welcome also.

Polka Audi 4shot:

Turtle beach XO7:

I haven't bought a pair of Turtle Beaches in over 5 years, they aren't my favorite brand. I prefer Trittons over TBs.

I'm lazy so this is copypasta from another thread I participated in.

"Astros are pretty much the top tier for gaming audio. Although, the Polk Audio Headset is looking real sexy.

But as others have said there isn't an adapter out yet. I would wait to purchase a headset for this reason alone. There is a good chance that the adapter will be bundled with the headsets at the same price."

Bump for you bud, I'm interested in recommendations too (I have TB X12) but looking to upgrade to wireless possibly.

I already paid for the Polk Audio headset myself. They SHOULD be some of the best sounding headsets when they come out next month since Polk makes great sounding speakers. But of course this could just be hopeful thinking :)... But hey, anything would be better than the stock mic lol.

P.S.
Both of those headsets you listed come with the adapter. They were designed for the Xbox One.
