You want the best, it's going to cost about $330. Senheiser PC360 + Astro Mixamp.

Actually the PC360 look like they're priced at $250 right now, probably because everybody is getting their taxes back and buying stuff like this. Usually they're about $200.


You want the best of the best, you're going to want the above, plus the DSS2 as a second amp. By using the DSS2 as a second amp you get the full punch of the game sound, plus enough punch with voice to hear your friends talking. It's not necessary, but it kind of is!

I love my Tritton Warheads. $300 wireless headset


Those are pretty slick, best ones I've seen so far.

Any neat features that you didn't realize until you got them?

How's the bass?


Not really, but the sound just blew me away. I went from TB x11s to these and the difference was insane

I'm not knocking anyone for what they want, but if I drop $300 on a headset, it better know how to cook breakfast as well..

I have yet to try the Sennheiser/Mixamp combo but I have tried both the Astro A50 wireless and 2013 version of the Astro A40 and both ended up being defective. The A50s lasted a month before the battery would no longer hold a charge. The mixamp on the A40s would just lock-up randomly and I would have to turn it off and back on to reset it. Got rid of both of those and bought the Turtle Beach Tangos which are wireless and have had zero problems with them. Then two weeks ago I bought the new Turtle Beach XP Seven headset which is comparable to the A40 and love it thus far. Super comfortable and the sound is really good.
