I was wondering which headset i should get, when i want to buy the Asus Xonar Essence STX. I was thinking about the Astro A40 7.1. I've heard that the Xonar can't deliver the 7.1 surround output that I want from the Astros, and therefore i don't know wich headset that is the best with the Xonar soundcard. If you could come up with any headset recommendations, I would like if the price was about the same as the Astros.
Now, this is also a recommendation if you are up for it. You could get some kick ass headphones that are 2 times as good quality as the astros for the price and get a cheap desk mic. ^^Thats what I would do but we all have our opinions.
I would stick away from any headset with the name "gaming" in them.
They're usually overpriced and you can get a pair of headphones at audiophile grade for the equal price.
Well, i would like if it was around the 160 Euros. I don't use a mic that much, so i don't really care for the quality of that.
Also, it have to be with a 3.5mm input to the headset, but I'm sure you already know that. :-)
