Headphones vs. Headsets?

V3N0M18

31 months ago

I was wondering which of the two I should get for my build. I would mostly use them for gaming, so is there a better choice? Also, which brand do you reccomend that isn't too expensive (<$150) but I can still use it to track down footsteps and that sorts of stuff in fps (surround sound?).

m30x and modmic

Why M30x? Open back is the way to go and if you need closed back then the M series still isn't great because the soundstage is really tiny.

I use the M50x's extensively for CS GO or did for a long time and they worked very very well, game sounded clear and such. I always recommend the line as the way to go, just because of how quality they've been for me.

Sennheiser HD 558 and Sony ECMCS3 clip on mic, should come to around 100 USD.

Sennheiser Game Ones if you find them on sale at your price point (I got mine for $125 a few months back)

They are basically HD 558's with a good quality attached flip up muting mic. Highly recommend, killer sound stage with high quality drivers makes directional audio and foot step tracking a piece of cake.
