Hi guys I just wanna ask how long does you're headset/earphones usually last before u replace them?
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.
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
I also prefer audio jacks so i can use it on my mobile device nice one dude
Lasted 3 days before. Now barely 1 hour since I got cursed by the audiophiles
I've had to replace my kraken usb twice in the lats 2 years.
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 ,
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
20-30 bucks last for a 1-1.5 years
70 bucks and more(Razer and Roccatso far) for about 2 years
Wear it till it either stops working which it hadn't. Going strong for 1.5 years.
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!
Ive had mine for 9 years! Still going strong!
Ive had my Krakens for 3 years and till going strong-and as a bonus theyve been thrown about abit and still work perfectly
Oh and also had my hammerheads for over a year and also still in great working condition-generally razer products are made very well and last long
I have my Razer Kraken Pro for 2 years and Kraken 7.1 Chroma for 3 years, both works perfectly fine
My last earphone lasted a year. I'm thorn between hammerhead pro or cloud 2. Thanks for your responses.
