Looking into a gaming headset

#1Knight2520Posted 7/26/2012 7:52:28 PM
My buddy uses a pair of Astro A40s for his gaming, and the sound quality is really good. My question is though, do I need to spend $280 on a headset for quality audio? Is it really you get what you pay for in this particular instance? Are there perhaps a few other cheaper alternatives with similar quality?

I just got a pair of rocketfish for 15 bucks on sale at Best Buy
You know why they call it an Xbox 360
When you look at it, you turn 360 degrees and walk away.

There are plenty of options that are much cheaper that will sound just as good and probably better.

Sennheiser 555's are really nice, well worth it IMO.

You could a great pair of headphones in the $100-$200 range and add a modmic for gaming.

I have the Logitech G930 headset and I love it. Wireless, 7.1 surround (or 2.0 stereo if you wish), great battery life, superb sound quality for a wireless headset, and they are insanely comfortable and even look nice compared to other headsets.

This is really cool but $30? Is the quality any good?

I got a pair of HTF600s that only cost $30 but I love the sound quality. A mic would be cool <_<
