Looking for new headset/headphones

#1ReeNoiPPosted 9/16/2013 11:05:26 AM
My Roccat Kave bit the dust and I'm looking to get something new and preferably lighter.

So far I have it narrowed down to these 2 sets, which are also at the top of what I'm willing to pay:
Sennheiser PC-363D
Ultrasone HFI-780

I'm leaning towards the Sennheisers since I kinda dug the 5.1 surround in my Roccats (these have 7.1 virtual). My soundcard is Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio PCI Express.

Anyone have experience with these headsets or recommendations/advice?

Get the PC360 instead of the PC363D.

Any reason you've narrowed it down to those two? The HFI-780s aren't what I would think of first when it comes to game-oriented headphones.

Let strength be granted, so the world might be mended.

Any specific reason why? Aside from the slightly lower price?

Mostly from looking around older topics here and searching around the internet. I want to avoid the "all flash no quality" you find in a lot of gaming headsets.

You already have a soundcard, the Dolby surround in the 363D isn't going to be much use to you. Save the $50 and get the 360.

I can vouch for pc360s in quality and comfort. Your card does support surround sound already, though i have no idea what the difference is between the two.

The 363D offers a Dolby surround processor, which he doesn't need, because his sound card will already do that, and probably do a better job too.

Thanks for the advice guys. I got the PC360 and they are indeed quite awesome and comfy.
