Audiophiles.... can the Logitech UE6000 headphones be used for gaming?

#1skillfactorPosted 12/2/2013 1:01:29 PM
Tigerdirect has them listed at a great price for 69.99 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-Details.asp?EdpNo=8588329&sku=DHS-102028406

however, it looks like they are more geared for the ipod... would these be PC compatible and decent for games?

There is no reason why they wouldn't be compatible with a PC, headphones with a regular 3.5mm jack connector will work on anything that has a 3.5mm jack connector. I can't say if they're any good for gaming however, as I don't know anything about them.

My bad, my post is mainly in regards to gaming and the headsets onboard mic.

I'm under the belief that if they're good for music, they're good for gaming.

A lot of people will say soundstage this, soundstage that, yada yada yada... But I find soundstage to be the most exaggerated and placebo susceptible attribute of headphones.

You're welcome to have your own opinion, but I will tell you right away that it's not a very popular one. Soundstage is great for separation and pinpointing sounds.

The mic is on a 4 pole jack so you wouldn't be able to use it with a PC. As for being good for gaming, I wasn't a fan of how they sounded (for music) when I briefly owned a pair but they'd do the job and that is a good price on them. That being said I would still recommend an open set of headphones over a closed set unless you actually need the isolation.

Eh, if we're talking AD700 vs Q701 then sure, I don't think it's really a concern. But you're kidding if you think there isn't a noticeable difference between AD700s and M50s when it comes to positional cues. No, the M50s aren't terrible at soundstage so a gamer won't be massively hindered using them, but it's like saying a basshead won't mind the AD700s since they still do have bass.

Bummer. I made the purchase in haste thinking they'd sell out at the advertised price. I was hoping the mic would work but its not a deal breaker if the audio makes up for it. Is there anything else out there that's competitive in this price range? Thanks for your input

This thread has a fair bit of info in it and from a quick look it seems like the Skullcandy SLYR's could be what you're after.

You'd be much better off with a pair of AKG Q701's and a Blue Snowball desktop condenser mic.
