I use the Logitech G430s. They're $40 on Amazon at the time this comment was typed. I've had them for the past few months and they're great.
The 7.1 surround sound is awesome, and there's a pretty nice amount of bass. The ear cups are removable and washable, and the headband has a sort of memory foam as cushion. They feel good to wear for long periods of time and they don't make me sweat at all. It also comes with an above average mic. I can recommend them in a heartbeat.
Amazon also has Logitech G430 Over-the-Ear Gaming Headset on sale for $34.99. Shipping is free. Note that it wont ship until June 21st
The logitech g340 is what I have. It's $40 on Amazon right now.
I love it. It has surround sound and sounds great when listening to music. The mic is pretty good quality as well.
There are some headsets like Logitech G930, G430 etc. that use an additional mic on the "outside" to detect noise coming from other sources and canceling them. Maybe you want to give one of those a try. example
I recommend this headset, as it's cheap and extremely comfortable:
I bought mine almost a year ago and wear it around 10 hours a day most days, and it only hurts towards the end of long computer sessions. The flip side of it being cheap is that it didn't last - around the 9 month mark the sound balance started acting up, and I am going to replace them, but they are cheap enough that if you like them, and comfort is a top priority, they're good value and could be worth replacing.
hey! I had the lower tier version of this headset for about two years and it served me fantastically (eventually broke in one ear but it was due to me being careless).
It's on sale for $30 right now but looks like it usually costs more! seems like a steal to me
Would recommend the Logitech G430.
I use it myself on my laptop and it’s pretty good for the price, being on sale most of the time. The comfort is the main selling point for me, I don’t even feel it after wearing it for hours, and the mic quality is relatively clear. Sound quality is also good, especially if you aren’t an audiophile and want anything too good, at which point you would probably go for a discrete mic and headphone setup.
Thanks. I'm debating on buying those or a cheaper set the
not sure which ones to purchase, I'm not an expert
Logitech G430 7.1 DTS Headphone: X and Dolby Surround Sound Gaming Headset for PC, Playstation 4 – On-Cable Controls – Sports-Performance Ear Pads – Rotating Ear Cups – Light Weight Design https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CQ35C1Q/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_HYTNAbVN8C7W7
Check this out
For less than $5 more, you can get the G430 on Amazon. It's a pretty good headset, in my opinion.
I understand, I was just looking into other options since my last headset physically broke and decided that if I was going to grab a replacement, it might as well be a bit more of an upgrade.
I looked around and I'm curious, would these be snake oil by any chance? https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-G430-Headphone-Cable-Sports-Performance/dp/B00CQ35C1Q
For the record, I mention these specifically because I may have found a decent price for them.
Hey, thanks, I do remember seeing these before, but it's been a while since I looked. I remember previously I found a lot of things that said 5.1, but weren't and a lot that them had other weird misgivings.
For instance, here's a pair of Logitech 7.1 headphones for $40: https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-981-000536-G430-Gaming-Headset/dp/B00CQ35C1Q They are just mini-jack headphones with a DSP/USB adapter, so it's doubtful that they are actually 7.1, unless there's some weird proprietary technology between the analog drivers and the USB dongle. One reviewer even said, "Not sure how the '7.1 Surround' works, as they are not digital headphones."
Logitech G430 wired headset. I use it for PC and PS4 and I've had it for 2 years now.
this Logitech G430 gaming headset i got for christmas is quite good quality for the price.
i assumed them to be much more expensive when i opened them up and started checking them out.
unfortunately, you better have a surround sound speaker system to use with any game consoles you might have as these only do stereo output even with the ps4 (now that was quite the disappointment).
oh and they even have a built in sub woofer so they get bass sounds quite nicely. :)
Logitech g430 headset is incredible--$60 for 7.1 Dolby surround sound. Had a pair for 2 years, then my kitten chewed the cord too much. I bought another pair straight away.
Need recommendations for 144 Hz monitor :)
Looking for a pair of headphones that either have in-line on-cable audio controls or on-ear audio controls.
Example of in-line audio controls: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CQ35C1Q/
Don't really want a headset mic, just want headphones. Budget $150. Don't like ear buds at all. The goal is to lower volume control for just myself, while my live stream's audio remains the same.
Yeah, I'd listen to /u/qwe282
$40 for an excellent headset. Supports PS4 and PC. (not sure on xbox)
this headset is amazing for $40, mic is really really fucking good, friend uses it, and audio is good too from what i've heard
Since the Corsair Void's are ~$59.99 I figured I would link the ones I use. I broke a set of Steelseries headphones (don't remember the model but they were $150 at the time) and on a whim went out to Walmart just to get some cheap headphones to replace them until my new ones came in. I bought the G420 Logitech Headphones for $49.99 (currently $39.99 on Amazon and no joke, I feel like they are far superior. I play Counter-Strike as well where sound cues are hands down the most valuable information you can have and I would definitely buy these again.
EDIT: I forgot to mention I returned the replacement set and continue to use these g430's
There's multiple solutions for audio on the R2 – I use these two:
- audio via USB (which is via the $7 adapter that was also mentioned)
Plus I have HDMI carrying my audio to my monitor, which has headphone out to 2.0 speakers when I'm not gaming.
It's worth mentioning that there's an optical out, but I don't recommend buying dedicated speakers with this function as it's less versatile later on.
Bluetooth is also an option, but you chance running into the problem of having connectivity issues periodically.
Hope this helps.
This is a headset my friend recommended to me. I haven't bought it yet, but it seems highly rated with many of the additions you specified. Again, uncertain about the product durability because I don't have it, but it's the one I would buy if I was looking to get one.
Get this if you're looking to replace it after a while with a better headset. It has a really nice mic on it, but don't know about the sound.
I was really happy with the Logitech G430 when I started out.
Not the best quality, but for that price its fantastic.
Just make sure you actually download the proper software for it and update the firmware. Makes a substantial difference.
$30 is pretty hard to find a good set that has a good mic and good sound quality.
You can get a used G430 on amazon for around $35 or if you're lucky you can find a used set on ebay for usually around $25 or under. https://www.amazon.com/LOGITECH-G430-DTS-Headphone-981-000536/dp/B00CQ35C1Q/
I'd recommend saving up for some hyperX cloud 2's or cloud stingers. HyperX cloud 2's are the best bang for the buck imo.
Anybody have any experience with these?
I picked up a pair because I was looking for a spare headset just for my PC. I have a pair of Astro a50 ' s but i really don't like having to remove and set up the station etc every time I switch from xbox to pc.
https://www.amazon.ca/Logitech-Surround-Sound-Gaming-Headset/dp/B00CQ35C1Q/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1485311402&sr=1-1&keywords=headset Like I posted then mate. If you want something similar to your kraken set The other poster has a good idea as well.
i'm looking for a headset, i'm considering something like the logitech G430 since it was worked well enough for my brother and is quite comfortable, but i'm wondering if there is an easy upgrade in the less than $50 range
> headphones imo are basically mandatory at a high level of play because of this
And it can help you on all levels of play. especially if the headphones are 5.1/7.1. Hearing WHERE the sound is coming from and reacting to it will bring a lot of salt and hacking accusations (as you surely know). I can vouch for Logitech G430 as a decent 7.1 headset.
I can't say anything about those but the general rule of thumb is gaming headset < headphones + mic
To be honest, if you are on a budget and want to get a good headset then the Logitech g430 or the HyperX Clouds would work just fine.
These are the headphones: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CQ35C1Q/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I connect the audio jack to from the monitor to the hub that displays the headset icon. No sound.
That multi-audio option on the PS3 is only for chat, it does not output game audio.
I use these I have the money to get a better headset, however, these work too well to justify upgrading. They sound great the mic is great and they are fairly comfortable. Also, I never have to worry about a battery or wireless connection issues.
Go with the Logitech G430. Looks like $50 on Amazon, I got mine from a Best Buy for $40.
It's got fantastic sound quality, especially for a budget headset. People I game with have said the mic clarity is good, and I've never had problems with the earpads being uncomfortable (and I have big dumbo ears, so this was a huge perk of the headset for me). Not wireless, but its worth noting that the cable is 7 feet long so you're never restricted by cable length.
If you want to save some $ get these for about $50. I have used them for almost 2 years and they work great.
Budget - $200 maximum
I'm looking for headphones with on cable volume control. The https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CQ35C1Q/ Logitech G430 Headset has on cable volume control, but I'd rather not have a mic on my headphones.
I'm currently using an Audio Technica ATH-M30X, which does not have on cable volume control.
This isn't anywhere near your budget, however, they are amazing sound great and have a great mic. https://www.amazon.com/LOGITECH-981-000536-surround-Gaming-Headset/dp/B00CQ35C1Q/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1471745608&sr=8-4&keywords=logitec+headset
Because they are not wireless you don't have to mess with any connectivity issues or anything like that. They just simply work and its great.
I have had really good luck with these. I mean really, I have enough money to upgrade if I wanted to. They simply work too well to justify a change.
this is what im thinking of buying right now, any opinion? Sorry again if this is the wrong place
Cool thanks! I would like to save up but my mic is pretty trash atm. So what is better the Hyper X Cloud 1 or... the logitech g430. I have been recommended the g430 also. Any opinions on that?
Just FYI most of the Logitech G series does work on the PS4. I use a G430 and I've never had any problems.
My issue is a lot harder to fix, sensitive ears, cannot keep on-hear headphones on more than 30-40min without being really uncomfortable. Sigh*
My fiance uses a Logitech G430, if you use the USB plug, it has some nice noise-cancelling software built-in. Sometimes a little too much, if you speak too softly it won't catch your voice that well. But it's a very nice and very comfortable headset. Unless you already have headphones you like, I'd recommend the Logitech G430.
If you just want a mic, your options are only limited by your budget. Go for something with gain control, that'll help you eliminate background noise. The Yeti by Blue is a very popular pick for simple ease of use. It's not the godsend people like to say, but it's only around $100 and still works great.
Did a little more research, at a price of $54.99 I think the Logitech G430 might be the best headset on the market at that price point and it's got 7.1 Virtual Surround.
I've heard good things about both of those headsets. I've also had a good experience with the G430's
Logitech G430. Primarily a gaming headset, I originally got them because they connect over USB through a dongle. I don't have a sound card since my motherboard is micro ATX, my video card is a 2 slot card, and my PCI-E 1x slot is being used by a USB 3.0 header card so I can use my front panel USB because my motherboard didn't have a USB 3.0 header...My motherboard caused problems in the beginning.
I had to use the onboard audio, which was apparently badly grounded, because there was always feedback that buzzed when using just the 3.5mm jack. On the plus side, the headset has Dolby Pro Logic II, which outputs 7.1 surround, says Amazon. It also has decent music response for my favorite bands.
There isn't any buzzing anymore, which is good...since that is the entire reason I got them. Decent reviews, decent price.
I game a lot as well. But my setup changes according to the genre. When I play fps I sit at my desk and play on my 23" inch monitor with crappy builtin speakers.
For other games i use either a 360 pad or arcade stick connected to my home theatre system, 50" lcd and 5.1 setup.
I recently sold a pair of turtle beach x12s that I had as an artifact from my peasant days. I'm thinking about replacing them with something like this
I use the Logitech G430s and really like them, voice quality is decent, and it has 7.1 surround sound (which I know doesn't mean much in CS, but still a nice feature.)
I was going to suggest the SteelSeries Siberia headset, but you want cloth cups, so Logitech G430 is what I recommend.
I use the g430 and it seems pretty popular. I don't have anything to compare it to but it's great for me. Never had any issues with it
Honestly I think Logitech makes the best mid-priced peripherals out there. I have heard nothing but good things about the G430's and I own the G930's (wireless with 7.1 surround optional settings). I absolutely love them, probably one of the best purchases I've ever made that was computer related.
I have friends that have this headset:
Offer Built in 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound, lightweight, noise cancelling, and overall just really comfortable!
@ $55.99 on Amazon Currently
this a little over your $50 price and they do have a sort of meshy ear pad. but i have them and i love them, 7.1 dolby digital and the mic is good quality. it is not usb, it is 2 3.5 ports, one for mic and one for headphones. it does come with a usb splitter too.
I also have those. They were provided by the office. I personally think they aren't very good for sound quality, comfort, or noise cancelling.
I went out and got these - but they aren't noise cancelling unfortunately.
I use and love this one - the mic quality is superb and it's both USB and the jack connections (Comes with its own converter).
Just make sure you download and install the software update from the website to fix the mic issue some sets have. (It'll drop your voice when you talk, but it got fixed a long time ago through the update)
They're pretty good for 60 bucks. Several hours of wearing them though kinda makes my head hurt because they're a tad too tight. I have that problem will all over the ear headphones though.
To those looking for an alternative with close to equal performance, the Logitech G430 Surround Sound Gaming Headset with Dolby 7.1 Technology is a good alternative for $59.99.
I own these AMA.
I bought these last time they went on sale for this price at Best Buy.
I love them, best headphones I've ever owned. I always had cheap pairs before these though.
A little album of pictures that might help someone make a decision about purchasing these. If you have any other questions or want a more specific picture of a certain part let me know. G430
Also for anyone concerned about the voice quality there is a firmware update to address the issue. Proof
They are also for sale at this price on Amazon. Amazon
G430 is consistently about the same price on Amazon.
Is that a better headset (according to the naming)?
Edit: best buy comparison here: G233 is stereo and G430 is surround.
FYI to anyone Amazon seems to have these at the same price right now, with Prime.
Def check out the Logitech G430 Amazon BestBuy $40 right now on bestbuy.
I've had these for over 2 years and they are still the best. Pretty comfortable with glasses, not sure if you have but comfortable nonetheless. I can hear footsteps clearly on siege and even pubg.
Check out the reviews on the Amazon link.

Great, thanks. This is the headset I use:
WIll alcohol wipes be okay for the ear pads' material?
Amazon has it for the same price
Got one myself last week. For the price it’s great.
From my previous experience with the Logitech G430, my current ones are comfortable with the memory foam ear pads. The G430 had this synthetic material that gave a rash every time I wore them and I couldn't play games for a long period of time. That's why my brother went searching to try and find me one without the cloth padding. He spent some time looking and found these. Though the Logitech's mic was decent, it was light and flimsy with the cheap plastic. The HS70 is a bit heavier but it seems that it was last me a decent time before breaking. Those Logitech ones broke after less than a year!
The Corsair ones are cozy and my ears fit perfectly in the cups but I wouldn't recommend these if you have big ears. I like the wireless aspect and the range is good. I can run from my living room to my bedroom if I needed to grab something. But my bedroom is right next to it anyway so take that into consideration. The battery life is alright, I charge them every night so I haven't tested how long they can go out without a charge. I'm not too informed on headphones and I don't know much about the technical aspect of it but they sound good to me and I can hear where people are in siege, so I guess that's all it really matters.
My brother bought it in store, which Canada Computers had a deal on for a boxing day event. I believe it was 80$ not including tax. I remember going into the store and look at all the different headphones but these were the ones I ended up picking and I don't think I regret it. The smile of me clinging on to the box waddling behind while he and his friend walked in front with their umbrellas and I had a pure smile on my face. We went to iHop after too
I give them a 4.5/5 :)
I own the Audiotechnica-M40x which sound great on primeday/Black Friday for under $100 and they are really great. The only problem is that they don't have a microphone. I have a seperate microphone so it's no worry to me. This headset looks pretty good and is on sale. If you want an affordable headset I would recomend waiting for blackfriday and consolting This website for the best sound quality and price.

The sale ended but: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CQ35C1Q
Hmmm you seem to know a lot about audio n stuff.
which of these should i get?
I recently got a logitech g430 based on friend recommendations.
For LANs, I recommend the Logitech G430s. For home, I recommend something like the Sennheisher HD 598s if you have a large budget and play alone in a room (due to them being open back) and pair it with a dedicated mic like a Blu Yeti. I, personally, would stray away from both of the headphones you have listed due to the fact that they are both marketed towards gamers, and generally, headsets of the sort will be of poorer quality (more on that here). If you're on a tight budget, but still want high quality sound, I'd recommend a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50Xs' with the Blu Snowball. I also saw you mention the kinds of headsets used by professional gamers. Pros usually are sponsored by certain brands, and in turn, use the brands gear (such as mice, keyboards, headphones, etc.). Additionally, pros generally use 2 separate pairs of headphones, one pair of in-ear monitors, and one pair for noise cancellation. The pair used for noise cancellation is generally one own of their sponsors. As you continue to search for a pair, please consider what I have mentioned, and feel free to ask me any questions.
Not sure on your price point, but if you want something around that - which is considered an entry level headset..
Logitech G430 are not bad at all as a choice.
You can use this via USB but you can also snag this to use it completely wired to the Controller.
This is of course just one of many options as well - just snagged another common one.
There are course others, but I'm uncertain of your price point.
As for those, don't go for anything that is off brand like that. Trust me, if it looks "cool" and isn't a well known brand.. it's just a ploy.
But again - depends on your price point. There are tons of viable options from reliable brands.
I suggest that above just because it's popular among entry level headphones, and a few friends of mine use that for their PS4 explicitly.
I'm thinking you thought they were speakers because of the 7.1.
G430 is a headphone
Will the Logitech G430 work with USB on the dock?
Headset with mic
Just really nice mic
That's the headset I use
I've rocked the Logitech G430s for a couple months, and it's done me well.
Besides a weird phase where the surround sound wouldn't work unless I reinstalled the drivers (I say phase cause it only happened for a month or two. Hasn't happened for awhile), I believe it's a solid headset for the price. It has great sound, pretty good bass, a built in mic that's usable, and it's comfy for long gaming sessions. The earcups are also removeable in case you need to wash them or replace them with fresh earcups. The blue accent also looks nice.
You can find it on Amazon and Logitech's website for $39.99 right now.
You can find better deals on some parts:
For standard 1080p 60hz monitor it's easy to find better deals, e.g.
G430 at near the same price:
The Logitech headsets are not bad and very comfortable over my big ears.
It's more of a taste thing but I think these cases looks better:
In the past I've owned these:
All of which, if the game has good sound design, will basically allow me to see through walls. A lot of it does come down to the game you're playing, and of course setting the audio up properly so it doesn't have a bunch of bullshit echo and what-not.
Is this the one you're talking about? It's $70-$80 Canadian so I assume you were saying $40 American in certain stores.
Pretty good headset imo, I use it with cs and pubg and have never had a complaint
I'm looking for a headset to play games with on my pc (as the previous ones broke). I'm looking at 3 headsets right now and want to know which ones I should get and why, compared to the others? The three choices are Logitech G430 the HyperX Cloud Stinger and the Corsair Gaming Void. Thanks
LOGITECH G430 DTS Headphone: X and Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset (981-000536) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CQ35C1Q/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_DdhzzbK69BRXM
You can also get a Logitech G430, it's way better than the G230. Also only $6 more.
Logitech G430 or hyperx cloud/ cloud 2
$40 brand new from Amazon $32 on warehouse deals. Might wanna lower it a bit.
Made the right compromises here, without failing to meet your friend's goals.
I think this will do great.
Didn't go with Kabylake, as the base Mobos are still expensive.
This has room to upgrade down the line. You can add more RAM, add some more fans/LEDs, and change the peripherals.
The 144Hz monitor will be great for gaming, and the 3GB 1060 should hit 1080p frames in most new games nicely. Its almost identical in performance to the 970 of the previous generation, at a friendly price tag.
As for a headset, I'd pick up the Logitech G430 if he wants to stick with the blue accents. The mouse and keyboard do this.
Budget: MAX: $150 USD
Source: Desktop PC Motherboard. MOBO: ASUS Z170-A. Willing to get soundcard or whatever, included in budget.
Requirements for Isolation: None really, just going to use them in my room, so none necessary.
Will you be using these Headphones in Public?: No.
Preferred Type of Headphone: Full Size.
Preferred tonal balance: Overall Balanced Headphones.
Past headphones: Logitech G430 Headset. When using them on my pc, there is clear static which gets in the way. I never use the microphone because I have my own, so I don't need one. I thought they were pretty comfortable, but tilting my head forward and backward they slide around a lot, often falling off my head. I want to stray away from headsets and to a pure headphone.
Preferred Music: Here are some links. Aire - Tea Time (Miraie Remix), Dansunanba O Tomoni, Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You - Cargo, vivid undress 「シーラカンスダンス」. My genre's are all over the place, here is the whole playlist. Just if the songs listed sound good, I'm for it lol.
What would you like to improve on from your set-up: In my first official pair of headphones I guess I'd just like cleaner (crisp?) balanced headphones. I'd like to hear vocals pretty clear, but not at such a hard cut to the other parts, I don't know if this is possible or not though. I suppose Midrange (vocals?) and the higher range (is this recommended for the music I linked?), and I'm also going to be using them for gaming, but it's not my main concern (although its what I do the most).
I know nothing about what it will take to 'power' these headphones. The closest thing I have is for my microphone I had to buy a Phantom Power supply (similar? I'm new) I'm willing to have to buy a soundcard or whatever, but please include the cost with the budget. I'd probably have to buy either the headphone or what ever I need at separate times. I'm a poor high school student. I really appreciate the help! Thanks!

Some good budget headsets:
Just fyi, the G430 are $39.99 brand new on Amazon
What about these? I really need a headset for various reasons (room being one of them), and my budget is sub-$70.
That's the best you're going to get for a cheap gaming headset.
Here's my suggestion:
I never realized how weak the Canadian dollar is, I was really surprised at how much less it gets you. This is based on the "Crusher" build from the /r/pcmasterrace wiki, plus a keyboard and monitor. I don't have any direct experience with any of these parts besides the monitor, which I got for my girlfriend's computer build (and it's a great monitor at that price)
If you're looking to spend more, the first places to do it are
Now for other recommendations. I stream on twitch as well, (mostly World of Tanks and other games), and I mostly use a Logitech G430 as my headphones/mic. If you're looking for a new mouse, Redragon makes really great mice at really good prices, I use a Redragon Perdition as my primary mouse for gaming, a Redragon Nemeanlion at work, and a Redragon Centrophorus for my secondary computer (used as a server and for doing distributed computing). For a webcam, I use a Logitech C920
logitech g430's, great sound, metal headband and very durable https://www.amazon.com/LOGITECH-981-000536-surround-Gaming-Headset/dp/B00CQ35C1Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1473379229&sr=8-1&keywords=logitech+g430%27s
Think these are a tad bit high on price. I'm sure you're open to offers but here are links to a quick google search. If I were buying, I would just buy new from one of these. Just FYI.
G303 commonly dips to $25 new on sale
G430 for $40 shipped
Roccat KPM for $30 shipped
My friend uses the Logitech G430's and he sounds completely fine quality wise. I can't comment on the audio quality since I've never used the headset myself, though.
I own and like these https://www.amazon.com/LOGITECH-981-000536-surround-Gaming-Headset/dp/B00CQ35C1Q
117 $ seems way too much i got my g430 for 40$+shipment 2 years ago at amazon.
Most may suck, however, I have used these for ~3 years and they still work great.
Budget: ~$80 preferably, $110 maximum
Source: 3.5mm jack in a computer
Requirements for Isolation: None
I will not be using these headphones in public.
Preferred Type of Headphone: Full sized, preferably over-ear but anything will work. Long listening sessions need to be comfortable, and open eared headphones would be nice as well.
Preferred tonal balance: I'd prefer an overall balanced set of headphones. Most of the stuff I listen to has vocals so mid emphasis would be nice as well.
Past headphones: Logitech G430
Preferred Music: Usually Lana Del Rey and some other music
What would you like to improve on from your set-up: I'd like to have a headset that is somewhat sturdy. I understand that at this price range that this goal may not be possible, but it's one I'd like to keep in mind.
One of my friends recommended this and another recommended this, if that helps.
Budget: <$30 (can go higher if it's absolutely necessary, but I would rather not.)
Source: Headphone jacks on phone and computer. Not looking for anything that needs a DAC.
Requirements for Isolation: I NEED good, if not medium isolation/cancellation. They way my setup is I have my bro's computer right next to me. The fan can get loud and he talks very loud into the mic. He also constantly messes with dice and throws them around on his desk which is loud as all hell. He also hits the table every now and then in frustration. Also his keyboard is mechanical, and mine, while not mechanical, is loud enough to get annoying even to me.
Public?: I will be using these on bike rides, car rides, planes, and at home. If outside I usually leave an ear open so it shouldn't make a difference.
Types: I would like either over ear/full or IEM's
Tonal balance: Balanced overall please, nothing balanced too much towards one end.
Past Headphones: I have used the Logitech G430 Surround Sound and Panasonic ErgoFit RP-HJE120-K before, both of which I liked.
Music/What I listen to: I mainly listen to podcasts, but I do listen to a fair amount of electronic music and electro swing, with some rock / jazz here and there.
Improvements: Main thing is that I want good isolation/cancellation.
I highly recommend the Logitech G430
Here's the headset I use. I love it:
This one from Logitech is nice and in your price range:
I have a few things which I will be posting tomorrow. I have prices in mind, just want to get a rough idea of the prices and how much it would cost to ship.
Logitech G430 Headset. Bought from Amazon. Used for 7-8 months. Have original box.
Corsair Spec 02 Case. Bought Open Box from Microcenter for $45. Comes with 2 fans (1 No LED Black; 1 Red LED). Will include additional front dust filters and 2 Corsair Red LED fans bought new from Amazon. Have original box and packaging.
Seagate 500 GB 5400 rpm Thin Laptop Hard Drive. This came with a laptop I bought 2 days ago and was replaced with an SSD. So it's brand new.

Have the original box it came in.

Oh, my young padawan, you need to use surround sound headphones.
The Logitech G430's are nice
http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Surround-Gaming-Headset-Technology/dp/B00CQ35C1Q/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1446949920&sr=8-2&keywords=logitech Great cheep headset used it before I made a huge investment!
On sale Logitech G430
Also these are the headphones I have and I think they work fairly well!
Or even cheaper, the G230's
If you haven't tried logitech headsets I recommend you look at the selection.
I need some headphones for Gaming, I'm willing to spend around 300$.
I have these bad boys right now: http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Surround-Gaming-Headset-Technology/dp/B00CQ35C1Q/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1445576174&sr=1-1&keywords=g430+logitech+headset
Okay well I want something better because I also enjoy listening to music.
AKG Q 701: http://www.amazon.com/AKG-Signature-Reference-Class-Premium-Headphones/dp/B004444OFK
I like these, but will I need an AMP and a sound card?
Sennheiser HD 598: http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD-598-Over-Ear-Headphones/dp/B0042A8CW2/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1445576296&sr=1-2&keywords=sennheiser
I've heard the sound stage is amazing on these and they're set at a pretty decent price. I'm willing to put in a little more money into a pair of headphones though... so I feel like I could get something better?
V-MODA Crossfade M-100: http://www.amazon.com/V-MODA-Crossfade-Over-Ear-Noise-Isolating-Headphone/dp/B00A39PPCG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1445576392&sr=8-1&keywords=V-MODA+Crossfade+M-100
I love the look of these and there's no sound leakage on these so that's a big plus.
What do you guys think my best bet is? 350$ is the most I'm really wanting to spend here. I'm mainly going to be using these for gaming but I'm willing to invest in high quality headphones. If you could suggest any other headphones for me that'd be great!
Id probably go with one of those two.
I've been using these for about a year and they have held up pretty well.
Neither. Get these.
How does that compare to the G403? It is also around $40 except for Amazon.
If you're into Logitech gear, my wife uses the G430 for PC and PS4 (essentially just a wired version of the G930 without the G keys with much better volume on PS4 than the G930, which I've tested); with an inexpensive adapter cable, they will also work on XB1.
I love my Logitech G430's http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Surround-Gaming-Headset-Technology/dp/B00CQ35C1Q/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1438143943&sr=1-1&keywords=g430
I want to buy a new headset mainly for online calls and games (occasionally, music and movies). I don't need ultra HQ audio; I just need a reliable headset with good audio quality and a good mic. I was considering a Razer, but it was USB and people told me about their poor build quality.
I just have to decide, Logitech G430 or HyperX Cloud?
If you were going for price/value, I'd say the Logitech G430. It's pretty popular, has a great mic, and right now it's $60 on Amazon (sometimes it gets to around $40). It has so-so build quality, but for the price it's pretty decent. It's black and blue so it might not go with your build, but there are some more costly ones such as the G35 and the G930, which are all black. The G930 is the wireless version of the G430, but my friend had it and he had many problems. I've heard good things about the G35, but I don't have it myself so I can't say much. Here's a link to all:
this logitech headset is the one I own. I can vouch for the audio quality, but to me at least (and I seem to be in the minority of people who feel this way) I think the earcups are kind of uncomfortable after a while. I will however be picking up one of these later on, as they look fantastic and have absolutely stellar reviews. If I had to recommend one, I would say get the second one.
I Use this
its good for the price IMO
I use these.
They let my ears breathe and they don't get uncomfortable even after hours of wear.
Worth the extra $30 http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Surround-Sound-Gaming-Headset/dp/B00CQ35C1Q You want surround sound man, trust.
[http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Surround-Gaming-Headset-Technology/dp/B00CQ35C1Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1420265315&sr=8-1&keywords=logitech+g430] (there are pretty good. Sound great, good mic, and comfy)
Wearing these now, best headphones I've ever owned.
How cheap are you looking for? This is fairly cheap and it fits large heads with glasses very well. https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-G430-Headphone-Cable-Sports-Performance/dp/B00CQ35C1Q
I had it for a while and it was my favorite budget headset. The only reason I don't use it anymore is even though the mic is on flexible rubber the wires inside do break. Mine broke after 4 years of use. It can last longer if your really careful with it.
LOGITECH G430 DTS Headphone: X and Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset (981-000536)
For 39.99, I'd say this is a really good mic.
The Logitech G430 may be a good option for a budget. Other than that and the HyperX Cloud 2, Plantronics GameCom 788 is a solid choice too. I know streamers that use both of those headsets. The only issue is that the G430's mic may not be what you're looking for, but the headset and a $50 Blue Yeti Snowball come in at just about $110 before shipping.
These are on sale today on amazon, just recently got them and absolutely love them so far. Great sound quality for the price and very comfortable.
For CS:GO I recommend getting something with surround sound. CS:GO is the game I play most and I use the Logitech G430s and they are great. I've also heard the G35s are good. I wouldn't get the Razer Kraken 7.1s however. I used to use them and they cannot compete with Logitech.
$57 $7 above but worth the money
i can recommend this one, relatively inexpensive and really good (to me at least). you see Cloud 9 using these....
logitech will get you the best bang for your buck (atleast at the price range you had)
don't go for any brands like turtle beach and astros, they are shit quality for the price.
$58.99 & FREE Shipping
$79.99 & FREE Shipping
Maybe $21 is a considerable amount to you, but it sure isn't to me.
Check out these: http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Surround-Gaming-Headset-Technology/dp/B00CQ35C1Q/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1390744407&sr=1-1&keywords=logitech+g430
Also check the 230 ones.
I love them.
But choosing from your list, definately the 215's
All you need is a USB port.
Many surround sound headsets connect with USB... and they have their own sound card built-in.
Take a look at these...
I believe they have a USB sound card built-in. I would confirm tho.
My suggestion doesn't pertain to the build itself; rather the headphones you chose. I've used the G230 as well as the G430, and the G430 sounds just so much better with virtual surround sound. You can find it here for $64.99, and I personally think the $30 more is worth it.
