    So the good weather just kicked in out of no where in my area, I figured it's slowly time to go back outside and take part in some disgusting activities like "Socializing". Sometimes I'd like to go for a walk and listen to some music, but I am not gonna take my Adaro DJ's with me outside for obvious reasons. I figured that I also like my self indoors something "lightweight" and could use something like the Hammerhead Pro's because of the microphone so I can use it on my PS4 as well.

    Just wan't some feedback on a few products and maybe some advice, looking at the Hammerhead Pro's which are difficult to get in Germany as of late, the Hammerhead Pro V2's which are pricey especially since I am saving money for a drivers license. I also found a cheaper option but it's like turning my back a bit towards Razer, the Roccat Syva's seem to be a nice cheap alternative with a microphone, yet the microphone is not like on the Hammerhead Pro V2's right next to you it's closer towards my heart.
    Opinions and advice appreciated.

    Best regards, Mike.

    I haven't used your alternative choice, but I owned both the Razer Hammerhead Pro V1 and I currently own the Razer Hammerhead Pro V2 - both have been excellent in-ear sound options. I've never had anyone complain when I use the microphone, even when using them plugged into my laptop for gaming or when I use them plugged into my Samsung Galaxy phone. The sound is great and I really do love them. If that's the style you're looking for, then I'd say you really can't go wrong with the Hammerhead Pro V2.

    I doubt they are water resistant, but even though the nice weather kicked in it still likes to rain a lot in my area. Do the Hammerhead Pro V2's mind some rain?

    On this one, I really don't know. However, in theory the most important part should be in your ears... if it's raining maybe just use a windbreaker sort of jacket (not something to keep warm, just something to help shield you from the rain) and keep the majority of the headset inside the jacket with your phone?

    How is the sound positioning? I play some games like Rainbow Six Siege from time to time so I guess it matters. Ah and how are they compared to proper headphones for gaming? +How long can you wear them before your ears start to hurt or any different discomfort kicks in.

    Well, I can wear my Hammerhead Pro V2 for multiple hours before I feel like I need a little break. Then usually I can just stop for about 15-30 minutes and then dive back in for another few hours, so the comfort hasn't been an issue. They do come with three different sizes of earbud covering so that you can get them to fit just right for yourself.f

    As for the sound, I've never had any issues missing sound positioning while wearing them. I have worn them while playing The Division and Overwatch where the position of other players can definitely affect game play, and I've never had trouble knowing where opponents were when they made sound. I also have used them while playing sneaking games such as Tomb Raider, Thief and Dishonored, and they were just fine there as well. I'm not going to say that they were quite as crystal clear as my Tiamat 7.1 headphones, but honestly I think that's to be expected when comparing those two. lol

    I tried the the Roccat Syva and I love it although I used the Hammerhead v1 until it was busted. I was trying to find a good cheap product from Razer to replace my old Hammerhead v1.
