    had my razer megalodon for 3 years and am thinking about buying a new headset now. Mainly because I use a laptop more and i'd like a wireless (man o war) one which I can easily switch between using with desktop and laptop.

    Used my megalodon about 3, too. Switched to an internal sound card, and(pls dont kill me) a beyerdynamic mmx 300. That baby got 5 years warranty, lets see if it lasts that long.

    I'm normally switch them, when their warranty is gone and something broke.
  4. So guys whats ur preference the usual audio jacks or thru USB? :)

    Well there is no real difference between them, the usb-headphones got the amp build in, and the audio jack needs an external amp. So the usb will always sound the same on every device you use it, but you wont be able to get better sound throught an upgrade.

    If I had to choose, I would always prefer the audio jack with an internal soundcard/ headphone amp :D

    If you're not set on a Razer, take a look at Plantronics gaming headsets. My gamecom has lasted nearly 4 years now and hasn't had a single problem, and I don't even have one of the higher end models. They're comfortable, sound is pretty good (I don't have much to compare them to), and the mic is clear and works great.

    Also, I prefer audio jack versus USB simply because it keeps another USB port open on my laptop. I don't have a dock, so that matters to me.

    I have my Tiamat 3.5 years and still near perfect ,minor wear on the ear cups ,
  11. It all boils down to preference I think. I'm using a usb 7.1 headset when im playing at home. and Hammerhead Pro when outside. What matters is where you are more comfortable :)

    I have had my headphones for 2 years and they still haven't broke. Just take good care of your headphones if you want them to last for a while.

    earphones' wires tend to spoil faster than headset's imo

    I usually go with skullcandy in the ear headphones which normally last me about 2-3 months because I wear them ALL the time. Over the ear/ gaming headphones usually last me 6 months to a year before I upgrade them!
