    My dad wants to get some gaming headsets with surround sound and a mic but he doesn't want to pay as much as i did for my Tiamat 7.1's. Do you guys have any suggestions?

    20-20k MHz is the range of tones that humans can hear. Anyything outside of that, your ears can't register.

    Edit: Also, to answer your question. I am also a big head with glasses. The V-Moda Crossfades are really good and well built.

    If you are looking for a gaming headset I would highly suggest looking at the Logitech G430 or G230. They are really comfortable and great quality for a lot less than most others.

    If you want music headphones, I suggest V-Moda, they have amazing quality and style and they have great specs.

    I have a G230 as well, but I don't recommend it. The sound is great, the mic is questionable and the wiring at the volume control is super touchy. Also, get outta here, Zed. Go back to your lane.

    Zed goes where he pleases 0.0

    Yeah I only used the Logitech g430 I was assuming they were similar to the 230's but people say they are good quality.

    ^^This^^

    Honestly, when it comes to audio (for the most part) you get what you pay for. With the exception of Beats...anyone who recommends them is probably ill-informed.

    So spend some extra money on something that is high quality and will last you forever.

    I liked the for the course of time the sound would fade from one ear cup to the other due to the bad wiring. Also ever since I got them people have complained about my mic.

    I personally like the Logitech G930 (if you prefer wired; G35) or the Corsair Vengeance 2100 (Wired; 1500).

    I've owned the Carcharias, and while it's not 5.1 nor 7.1 they were still pretty good (until the wire frayed).

    Well turns out, my mom bought Sennheiser HD 518 on sale for $80 for me for Christmas. How are those for quality? I heard they are really good. Do you think they would go good if I get the Seiren? Should I hold off on a mic? Modmic maybe? There is a chance she got me a modmic with the headphones. (I am 21 so don't think I'm a 12 year old or anything) Haha any input would be amazing. I know my computers, but I'm not much of an audiophile.

    I'm really thinking about getting the Razer Orochi+Razer Kabuto+Razer Hammerhead Pro+Messenger Bag for $150 and hold off on the mic. I have an Asus G750 laptop and game on the go a lot so it would be nice to have those. Then use the HD 518 and modmic for my daily driver.

    Dude. They're Sennheiser. You can't go wrong. Good job. You better be into pure sound quality because Senns don't do bass boost. Purists only.

    The Kraken comes in a 7.1 option. The price for the green LED is the same as the Chroma, $100. Getcha one!

    I love bass though =(

    Yeah, Senns don't really do bass. Let me look up the model.

    Edit: So I don't double post, I think you can count on studio produced sound. So, yeah. It won't be super bass-y.

    @SnipeAHolic12 i am obligated to say you are all about that bass about that bass no treble.

    @Antosa Are the kraken 7.1 usb? I have had some friends with really bad usb experiences.

    Any input on usb vs aux?

    I checked audio samples from the seiren and the yeti, theres a minimal difference for me. Yes the seiren looks absolutely stunning, but im not paying an extra 70 euro's for it.

    Usb can be powered more because the usb acts like an amp(in some cases). Audio quality is amazing for both. With 7.1 usb you're good to go, with auxyou either need an amazing on board audio or a sound card. Also usb you need USB and can't be used with anything else such as phones. That's all I know. I hope it helps.
