  1. An A40 if you don't need wireless, and A50 if you do. Or a Steelseries Siberia V2/Corsair Vengeance 1500 if you don't want to spend an arm and a leg.
  2. Hi,

    You could also try the Logitech G930's. They have 7.1 surround sound and are wireless. They will also last up to 10 hours and are only $145.

  3. I bought the G930's about 6 months ago. They fit nice and sound alright. HOWEVER I have had a few issues.
    Firstly the dongle dock went. It wouldn't charge at first, and then decided not to power up at all so I had to use a spare cable to charge and plug the dongle directly into the PC. The batteries don't last 10 hours at all. I'm constantly recharging them and most of the time I just leave the cable plugged in. And lastly, my dongle has decided to drop out at random times. Usually when I'm raiding.

    I am now in the same boat as you. A40's or A50's.... I think I am going to go for the A40's as they have a wider frequency range, are a little lighter, and the mix amp is pretty awesome. I'm sick of the problems that wireless headsets seem to come with.

    On the other hand, I like that the A50's come with a headset stand, and that they run on a 5.8ghz. But if the headphones die then the whole set is basically useless.

    TL;DR A40's FTW
  4. I was also trying to decide between the two. Here is a helpful review http://jamescausian.hubpages.com/hub/Astro-a40-vs-a50
