Any recommendations for PC gaming headsets?


Recommended Posts

Yes hello,


My existing PC gaming headset is broken. I ordered a new one but when I arrived I realized that it has total noise cancellation in the ear muffs, so when I voice chat with friends in-game it feels really weird speaking (like having earplugs in), and I can't tell if I'm yelling or being quiet. It's pretty off putting, and also the mic died like a week in.


I was curious if anyone has any good recommendations for a headset that lets me actually hear myself speak (noise cancelling mic is OK though), and is decent quality at mid-low range price. I'm thinking $80-150 range. Nothing too crazy since I never break 15 hours a week gaming anymore these days.


USB connector is slightly preferred over analog, but not a huge deal. Any recommendations are appreciated!




Edit: I realize I can just google headset reviews, which is what I did for this last one, but I can't really google "without noise cancelling ear muffs" or the like and get good results. It'd be nice to talk to someone who actually owns the headset.

since black friday is approaching, wait until amazon has sennheiser hd 598 on sale for 100-110, and get urself a modmic.

It will beat any "gaming" headsets.


This guy has the answer!


HD 598's for $109.99.  Then just get a mic with a wire clip.


Gaming headsets are mostly a scam.  Not worth the money.
