Gaming HeadSet

Hello. I am looking for a gaming headset that is not only comfortable but affordable.

The headset needs:

- a microphone. I need to be able to communicate with fellow gamers. It needs to be a clear crisp microphone.

- long cord (So I am able to move from my computer to my bed and listen to music without disturbing room mates) So approximately 8 feet (or 96 inches) of cord to lay comfortably in my bed.

-Comfortable. I hate buying really expensive headset's to not have them be comfortable.

-Adjustable. So i can fit them to my head.

-No more than 35 dollars.

  1. Thats alot to ask for spending 30 bux (tax is the rest)
  2. Yeah I know. That's why I came to you guys. I know you guys on this forum are at the best of what you do.
  3. Under $35?

    I dunno but I use something a little bit more expensive :

  4. I guess it doesn't have to be under 35. The price can get to a bit more expensive. Just not to 100 dollars.
  5. I have these and really like them. They are $40 on newegg and $32 on Amazon, both free shipping. The cord is only 6.5' though. You can always get an extension cable somewhere.

  6. I took a look at the customer reviews for them. A lot complained about them hurting their ears. So it makes me not want to buy them. That is one of the reason's I want a new headset. The one I use now hurts my ears so much I can't wear them more than an hour.

    I've worn these things for hours on end. The only time anything hurt was my head form hearing to many explosions. I guess is you have a large head or big ears it might cause issues. I dunno. I like them alot.
  8. Nah. Its just my headset now is just horrible. The cushion that's suppose to be protecting your ears are no longer there. X[ Thus the pain
  9. I was looking at these "Ear Force X11 Amplified Stereo Headset with Chat" on amazon and I was wondering if they are a good buy. I have an xbox 360 and a computer. So i was thinking kill 2 birds with one stone?

  10. These muffs fit your ears inside so the padding is really against your head, which I like compared to my old set that the cushion sat on my ear. It was just a suggestion.
  11. Thanks so much for even taking the time to look at my thread <3 I appreciate it so much.
  12. A good way to check them out is to go to a large retailer that has them on display and look over them.

    I think what you're looking for might be impossible to find under 35$...

    However, the Sennheiser PC 161 seems to receive a lot of praise (even though I never tried them) and it seems to be everything you're looking for, it has a 10 feet cord, comfortable, good mic etc... The bad news is that you will have to shell out more cash than you originally planned to:

    There is also the Razer Carcharias that is more expensive than what you wanted to pay, but it also has the 10 feet cord + the reviews say they're very comfortable:

    Otherwise, jay2tall's suggestion to go to a retailer and try some of them is a pretty good idea.

    Good luck!
  14. Oups, just realized the PC 161 is back-order on katerno.com and it seems to be at least 20$ more expensive with other resellers. For about the same price I think I would go with the Razer.

    However, if you wish to pay a little less, there are the Sennheiser PC 151:
