Yeah dude, i already got a nice keyboard with blue switches, and i love it! For the monitor, i think i'd rather have a larger 1440p monitor, even if that means i'll get a higher input lag, maybe 60fps if i can overclock it to get some higher FPS? I'm gonna be using the PC for desktop apps as well, and screen real estate is precious when doing multi window!
Also when are the third party GTX 1080s expected to come out? I don't wanna deal with AMD 480 in crossfire because i play a lot of indie games, a lot of which don't support crossfire/SLI. I might consider the 480x, but when is it expected to come out? I'm getting impatient waiting to finally build this PC! And why is Gsync so expensive? From the (very little) research I've done about it, it looks like all it does is limit FPS. Couldn't i get a 3rd party program to do that?
I don't wanna cut costs on the headset, but the other option is getting the GTX 1070, a cheap mouse, an i5 6600k, or cutting off half my budget for games. I found this headset with nice reviews. I doubt anything better will cost only $20 :P. I'm looking around for a i7 6700k, do you know of any deals for it? Maybe one bundled with other parts? In fact, deals on any PC parts in my budget would be helpful. Lastly, what mouse do you recommend? I need a really good sensor and relatively flat shape. Thanks! :)
I've always just end up getting these [link]
surprisingly good quality for the price if you're low on cash.
I've been using the Creative Fatality headset for about a year now and it's been really good. I'm no sound enthusiast but the headphone quality seems good to me and I've been told that the mic sounds super clear.
There are cheaper headset mics of course, but you'll need adapters to get them to be XLRs. Analog computer headsets would probably work, you'd need 1/8 inch to XLR adapters or cables.
Something like this might work, and it's cheap:
You'll need an adapter to get it plugged into the mixer though...the advantage to a headset like that (which should have separate connectors for mic and headphones) is that you could probably also feed game audio or program audio (or whatever you wanted) easily to the headphones.
Hey guys, I need some durable and long lasting over ear, closed headphones. My budget also ends at 200 dollars. I need decent sound, but durability is more important here (I have extremely bad luck with electronics, even if I'm using kid gloves)
My headphones are also only used for gaming and on my Iphone.
I had a Bose pair in the 300 dollar range that I loved that broke after four months. My replacement pair was this Fatal1ty pair: [link], but it quickly died as well.
I don't have "good" headphones and have never taken a test like this before. I just scored 5/6 using this cheap headset with on-board audio. I will admit that I listened to the all of the songs several times up to Speed of Sound and then heard the imperfections one of the choices, listened to the other two and made a quick decision. Uncompressed WAV! I honestly second guessed myself quite a bit up until that point of making my first choice, and considered closing out and forgetting about the test entirely. After that I did the same with Katy Perry and got that one right too. So I just started trusting my ears and did all the others...except the last one ...I second guessed myself some more (but admittedly I had never heard the first or last clips before and I think I got lucky on the first one) and picked the 128...damn! In my opinion though, it's easiest to hear the imperfections when there's lots of cymbals and high hats in the mix...at least for me I can tell right away with rock which usually has lots of drum fill.
The creative fatal1ty headsets are amazing.
I have had these for over 2 years now and they are still working as if I bought them yesterday. Sound quality is superb! Although I am having trouble playing Amnesia because it is too damn scary... Seriously I keep looking behind me (literally) as if something is going to jump out at me.
Gonna drop price
they're a gaming headset with a mic that is detachable
and although its not exactly this one is looks like it closely
Budget - ~$50USD
Source - Going to be using them straight from my PC/phone.
Requirements for Isolation - Some isolation, my house can be noisy at times, but it's not required.
Will you be using these Headphones in Public? No
Preferred Type of Headphone - Full sized, over-the-ear
Preferred tonal balance - Balanced is probably my best be here, they're going to be used for a wide range of things.
Past headphones - My current pair are Creative Fatal1tys. Goofy branding aside, they're comfy and the sound quality is good enough for my peasant tastes.
Preferred Music - This is a broad category. On any given day I'll be listeng to KMFDM, Kaizers Orchestra, Bob Crosby, BNL, and Reverend Bizarre back to back. Also, gaming, podcasts, voice chat, and Twitch streams.
What would you like to improve on from your set-up - What I'm looking for are some wireless headphones that fit the above criteria and also have a built in mic. So far I haven't been able to find anything. So help me, /r/headphones, you're my only hope.
You can check out the Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset on amazon.
I want to get my brother a new form of headphones for his birthday. A Zalman Clip-on mic is already here, looking to complete the setup now.
I thought about the Superlux HD-681 EVO and the Takstar HI2050 was recommended here a month ago. Is there something else that would be a good purchase?
I want to get my brother a new form of headphones and a new mic for his birthday (still time though, date is 9th of May). He currently has a Creative Fatal1ty Gaming headset and it sounds just terrible listening to music and listening to him over skype.

Ah, I get it now.
Can't do much better for $20.
You can get decent headsets for $20.
For example: [link]
you could check this out. Has decent reviews and is within $30...
However, you could get another kraken pro aswell, if you like it; http://www.amazon.com/Razer-Kraken-Analog-Gaming-Headset/dp/B00Z0IBM4K/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1450701281&sr=8-9&keywords=razer+kraken
any good headset you know of? [link]& i was thinking of those but im not to sure about em. if the headset comes with a mic that would be pretty cool :D
I've heard these are pretty decent
I personally use these for years now:
They have a good sound and are pretty cheap.
The detachable microphone is also pretty neat.
I've been using Creative Fatal1ty and have no issues. None of those driver whatever stuff. Plain and simple.
Aren't these like <$10 before the rebrand?
Also for under $35, the Creative Fatalitys destroy this.
Fatal1ty Gaming Headset
Creative Fatality Headset
Got this one for years. Nice sound quality, detachable mic and nice fitting.
Couple options that are really the same options: Get a USB external sound card. Creative labs makes some, and they even have headphones that plug in via USB and have the 'sound card' built into them.
i'd recommend not going the headphone route, because you'd preferably like to pick the cans you want, without being restricted to that one pair... the the external card is the way to go probably.
(edit - keep in mind these are just example products, and I've never used them (although i do have a pair of the fatality headphones... they are decent, but not very good), there are better quality ones out there, so be sure to investigate before you buy)
If anyone is looking for a cheap option i recommenced the Creative Fatal1ty headset [link]
They have been serving me well for 4 years now.
Im using the Scarlet 2i2 audio interface
it has 2 xlr input ports on the front of it.
But I want to be able to have the option to use this
audio interface and microphone with separate microphones too.
Say for instance I had 4 of something like this.
is there a way I can connect all of them to my computer and just use these for audio individually, I know I can use a headset to record audio, shouldnt i be able to use 4 of these to record at the same time?
It cant be that my only option is to soley use XLR Cables and buy more microphones to record with.
My main purpose in getting a headset like that is generally because I want to several birds with one stone,
I want all of my friends to have a mic of their own so we can record together,
This headset has 2 input cables, one for the mic one for the headphones, so I can listen to audio
and record at the same time. Plugging these into the audio interface would allow us to monitor the sound through
the device so it wouldnt spill into the microphone.
Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset - $25 on Amazon.
I've had mine for 5 years with no issues.
This is mine. It's good all around :)
Cheap Creative Fatal1ty gaming headset. Sounds just fine to me and my gaming/VOIP needs. Cheap enough to buy new ones when I inevitably run/trip over the cord and break them. Amazon Newegg
Check out the Creative Fatal1ty for a great gaming headset. Sound quality is very good, and the price is quite reasonable. I found mine on Amazon for about $30.
Sometimes pretty makes a horrible product. When I was looking for a gaming headset I found a set of these which costed a lot more when I bought them. They are complete garbage even tho they have that "fatality" dude signing off on them.
Ended up buying these from sharkoon which work for 360 and pc with great sound and very loud if need be. Love sharkoon now.
This question comes up a lot. Do a search to see what other people have recommended before.
If you have a decent sound card I would suggest not going with a USB headset.
I use these and am happy with them. Great price and great bass. The boom mic is detachable.
