Best Headset for gaming

Hi,
I was searching for a headset and i found that the corsair 1500v2 is great.
But then I found this newer headset called Kingston HyperX Cloud which has slightly better audio according to review sites but doesn't have virtual 7.1...
I know audio is personal but how can I know which one to choose?
Which one is the best you think?(or other sugestions are welcome as well)

thnx in advance,
Methe

  1. for me, I realy like the Roccat Kave XTD it has REAL 5.1 i.e. 3 speakers per ear -you may find it lacking in base though because of this
    but there are many settings in the software you get with it

    I also prefere real 5.1 to digital 7.1 I feel it ads digital distortion... but thats just me

    Thanks for your input!
    I think it's a great headset but it is a double the price and I don't really want to double my budget you know...
    Sorry for not mentioning it ,I forgot to mention I would like a headset that's maximum a 100 euro's.

    hmmm I would prefer a headset...
    Is the difference that big between headsets and heaphones? :??:
  6. Headphones do not have a built-in mic but they have better sound quality / profile and sound stage than headsets. So in terms of quality of sound on a per euro basis, headphones are better. The sound quality on headsets are rather poor and even the best headsets that money can buy may not have sound quality that matches a competitive pair of headphones.

    The only problem is that headphones do not have a microphone. But luckily there is the modmic invention and honestly, that is the only mic that I recommend using.

    usualy headsets compromise between good mic and good sound, headphones are all sound ...good sound but this solution would cost way more than 100€ the mod mic itself is like 130...

    Well like I said, my budget is 100€ and I would prefer a headset which would fit in my budget.
    You got any suggestions or reasons to pick one particular headset?

    when I was looking for mine I tried on the mad catz F.R.E.Q. headset (can´t remember wich one but they´re all prettymuch the same) I can´t say anything about the sound but they were one of the most comfortable headsets I´ve ever worn and imo they look good :D
