    The headset I personally prefer is the razer kraken USB. I love the headset so much. The wire is not rubber platic its a nice wire that wont rip or tangle much(depends how you use it)

    I've got a pair of Logitech G930's. Best gaming headset period for $99 (from Amazon).

    If you don't need to talk to people, or you already have a microphone you should look into a pair of audiophile headphones though.

    I'm very happy with my Kraken Forged Edition the build quality is amazing the sound is great! $300 is a bit pricy for anything but if you get a deal on them that's even better I got them for $150!

    Got a pair of beyerdynamic DT-770 pro's for studio use and stand alone mic but rather just use my KRK speakers. Headphones always start to irritate me :slightly_sad:

    Yes, audiophile headphones sound amazing and I tried a few I few like Grado, and sennheiser. The amount of detail that can be heard from music instruments and vocals is incredible. I'm saving up right now to buy a pair audiophile headphones and a razer seiren for a mic. The downside is you dont get a mic built in which is nice if you game on laptop and travel around. I talked to some people that have audiophile headsets for music and movies at home. Then they purchase a headset for use on the go like gaming at the library or a small lan party in a dorm room.

    Grab the V-MODA M80 for $90 and then a splitter to use the mic on your computer. Excellent sound quality that no gaming headset will match. They also make a boom mic and splittle bundle available for $30. That's what I am doing and I get better sound and mic than any headset I've tried.

    I've been using the Kraken Pro since Sept of 2013 and love it. I haven't had any issues with it at all. It's sounds great, is super comfortable, and affordable.

    My Razer Kraken 7.1 calls for both comfort and great audio quality. But when I go out, of course the USB doesnt fit in my phone. I usually use my old Electra which still works wonders or my Blackshark BF4 when I go out

    My 7.1 Chromas work wonders, and I have tried a plethora of headsets. Including some Seinnheisers, and I honestly think they sound just as good. They are phenomenal, and you can't forget the wonderful chroma aspect either :blush:

    my fav headset I have personally owned was my old Plantronics gamecom 780. great audio for the price and a top notch mic for level, direction and range. I did have to put a pop filter on it however to kill the sound of breathing on it. the problem with that headset was after 2 years the head band had stretched out and caused the speaker pods to ride really low on my head and rest on the top of my ears. I replaced them with my Tiamat 2.2. the speakers are pretty good, again for the price. and I really have liked the head band and the overall construction. but the mic is pretty much terrible for level and direction. the reproduction range isn't bad, a little better than the one of my 780, but I have resorted to hooking it up to an external mixer to get any kind of level out of it and for setting the EQ before it gets into my computer. I have a $700 sennheiser at work that I absolutely love, but the mic requires phantom power. so it wouldn't work well for a home computer headset.

    Honestly, my favorite one is a wireless sennheiser I bought of sale somewhere. Now, it's not my favourite because of sound quality, but it is the only headphone I have ever worn, that doesn't get heavy after having it on my head all day. And the best is, I can just keep it on wherever I go. All other headphones I have worn get heavy, or too clampy on my head, and comfort is more important for me than sound quality. Got music everywhere I go in the house. If I want to game, or talk, I switch to other headphones with a mic. Haven't found this comfort in any other headphone so far.

    I can't personally attest to this, but I wouldn't recommend getting the Seiren. Purely because this is Razer's first step into the recording world, and you could more than likely find a better, cheaper microphone from companies who have been doing this for years. Like Audio-Technica or Sennheiser. Just make sure that you buy a USB microphone, because most microphones have XLR outputs. so unless you have a spare audio interface lyin' around, get a USB microphone.

    I've had my Astro A40s since 2008ish and it has been my best purchase so far. So much so that I recently upgraded to the newer A40s for Xbone. The M80 adapter it comes with is very very nice. I keep my old A40s at work now and my mixamp at home for when I need to use another console or my pc.

    I just love my Tiamat 7.1...headset is really nice, no problem to use it for hours, the module to plugin a home theater is really useful. Sound is great of course...I'm really happy. I had a G35 from Logitech but I would never bought Logitech gear anymore...

    I've always really liked my Hammerhead Pro when I've used it with my laptop in the past, but recently I received a Tiamat 7.1 and I'm absolutely in love. I wouldn't trade it for anything at this point. :) (though, I am pondering a sound card upgrade to go with it - only because while it sounds amazing, I can't help but wonder if I could still do better than my on board)
