looking for a headset that's comfortable for someone with glasses.

#1twinslashPosted 9/30/2013 11:00:12 PM
I'm looking to get a headset with a few things:

- Comfortable to wear with glasses on.
- Mic isn't really long/wacky (like the razer black shark for instance.)
- Preferably under 70$

Mainly going to be using it for playing MMOs, watching shows, and talking to people in mumble/vent/skype.

I've never really used a headset before and have always opted for my speakers+mic. But I thought it might be a good idea to get a headset now that i'm in an apartment with a roommate to keep the noise level down.

Any with memory foam pads should be good with glasses

Razer Carcharias is pretty nice. It's very comfortable.

Check out the Steelseries Siberia V2. The sound quality is passable (although the bass can get a bit overpowering at times), the mic is retractable and it's probably the most comfy headset I've ever used. I almost forgot I was wearing it at times.

ill 2nd these.

price wise the counter strike version has been the cheapest ive seen. but im drooling over the led versions

other headsets ive tried would either hurt my ears after a while or have muffled audio, some too tight like the.

cm storm ceres too tight, muffled audio
turtle beach earfoce 11 uncomfortable after couple house, and mic died after a few months

some old platronics, but it my ears would get sweaty and muffled audio

anything with velvet pads is a pain to clean.siberia has soft leather which is easy, the cord and volume adjusting part isnt heavy so it wont throw the balance.

SteelSeries Siberia V2s off of Amazon. I have some and wear glasses, and I can easily wear them for hours without getting uncomfortable. They sound pretty nice and look decent, although they feel slightly flimsy. I'm happy with mine, and may or may not get another set (or w/e they update it to) when these ones are done.
