What gaming headphones better?

Hello, i have trouble deciding what gaming headphones better. Creative sigma 3d, Thermaltake shock, shock spin, Turtle beach Ear Force Z2 or steelseries v2. They are all around 50 euros.

More about what gaming headphones better
  1. If "steelseries v2" stands for the Siberia v2, I'd go with this one.
  2. None of them are particualy any good. I'd recommed spending more money (if this is possible) to get a better pair.

    Whats your budget?
  3. Astro A40's are probably the best I've used. They are expensive, but if you can afford it you should give them a look.
  4. look up razer megalodon and logitech g930 or g35. ifyou have roomjust get 5.1 speakers, logitech has great sets for $80 u.s.
  5. In my experience Logitech headsets are poorly built and very flimsy.
  6. also look at CM Storm sirus, true 5.1 surround they are amazing. not sure how much the cost in euros though.
  7. The best option for a gaming headset is the Razer Megalodon. It has 7.1 Surround sound that makes you feel inside the actual game and the options for the mic are amazing.

  8. No point buying the Razer Megalodon when the Razer Tiamat is released next month.

  9. I would also go with the Astro A40 or possibly the Steel series 7H
  10. there is a point to get the megalodon because you can get it for $100 on sale, tiamat is $180 and will stay there for a while. besides the tiamats bass isnt the best according to reviews
  11. Really? I heard the bass was one of the Tiamats strong points.
  12. the review said no for being so close to $200 the bass wasnt too great. but i guess everybody has diferent opinions on how much bass is good. and i just read one review. but you also need a 7.1 card to use them.
  13. What is your budget? Price will determine what features you may have also whether you will be using surround sound such as 5.1 or 7.1
  14. i'll bet op never posts again.
  15. Well, OP has 7 posts. There is a slight chance, not too keen on fast response time by OP.
  16. How do you all like Sennheiser's PC350? Based on the specs, they seem nice. There's even a mod (http://www.head-fi.org/t/406187/modding-the-sennheiser-pc350-headset) to add more bass.

    They're a bit dated, but it seems like a good contender. For gamers, the two major complaints are the lack of bass out of the box and requiring a headphone amplifier to get decent sound quality.
  17. I love Turtle Beach headsets and am partial to them because they are comfortable and tend to give decent sound, but they aren't the best, bass can't go super low, treble not super high, but a decent headset.

    The Shock spins are a decent pair of headphones but if you're after looks don't get them.

    DO NOT go with the Sigma 3D, when they work they are a good pair of headphones, but they like to break... ALOT.

    If I were you I would invest a little more money and get the Logitech wireless gaming headset http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003VANOFY/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=gamingsquid-20&linkCode=as2&camp=217145&creative=399373&creativeASIN=B003VANOFY super on sale right now $120 US rather than $160 US hope this helped.

    Some people like it with a sound card. It's a good headset.

    I've owend the pc350s and I wasnt that impressed by them.

    I will say a few good things about them however: The build quality was very good, very sturdy, and the sound was crystal clear (good for competive gaming for hearing voices and footsteps etc)

    However, the sound lacked any "meat", too lacking in the bass, sounded a bit tinny. Evan running through a ASUS Xonar D2 soundcard they sounded average, for the money I expected better sound quality, especialy from Sennheiser. If they where priced slighty cheaper then they would be a better buy.

    Personally I like a pair of headphones to add to the immersion, which the pc350s didn't.
  20. @ gotham
    which headphones have you used that you did like?
  21. Haha, I can be very picky about sound.

    Mainly top end Sennheiser and Beyerdynamic headphones, but I'm trying to find something a little bit more affordable that I'm happy with as the top end headphones are very pricey.

    I'm looking forward to trying out how the Tiamats when they come out to see how well they handle " true 7.1 surround sound" compared to emulated surround sound.
  22. well let us know. i hate headsets, but when you share a room with your wife, thats the only option. that or not game. i just dont game, id rather use z-5500 system when shes not here. i do have 930 when she is but agreed, it seems flimsy, esp. for $160
