For anyone interested I highly recommend The Logitech G930's. I use mine daily and I've had them for 3+ years when they were around $120.
I remember the Fry's employee cringed at me spending that much on a headset. He recommended some plantronics headset that looked extremely uncomfortable for $60. Fuck that.
Edit: Fuck you plantronic loving cunts
I own this headset. I use it on my pc and ps4. It has a true 10 hour life. Also side note I wear glasses and as anyone will tell you it's hard to get comfortable wearing a headset for 10 plus hours. Well not with these. The mic quality is pretty good. The surround sound only works on pc so I'd say that's a downside on you xbone.
It seems new. Like, there aren't any scratches or scuffs and everything was in the plastic with the original boxing. The build quality seems low, though. The plastic is flimsy and makes rattling sounds. I'm worried I bought them from a bad seller, but they're on Amazon and they're prime. I thought that because they were expensive that they'd be good quality headphones, but maybe not. I might have just been jibbed.
And an update on what I've figured out so far: it seems like they never implemented support for Windows 10 for these headphones. And, to their credit, the Amazon listing doesn't list Windows 10 as one of the supported operating systems, only vista, 7, and 8. And the buzzing only happens when the headset is charging. Also, charging is weird in general. It seems like the headset is constantly turning on and off while plugged in.
I've already submitted a ticket on the Logitech support site. I've had dealings with them before (none too great) but I can still hope.
Here's the amazon listing: [link]
I use a Logitech gaming wireless headset - this one, actually ([link])
It's been marvelous. Tons of mixed reviews on Amazon but I've been happy with mine. Great sound, people can hear me on the other side just fine, great range, etc. I mainly always have it plugged in, though, since I don't wander around the house much with it.
I'd recommend that you look at the gear for gamers at Amazon or Best Buy or where-ever and go from there.
When I was doing my research a year or two ago, Logitech wireless headsets consistently come out on top in terms of quality and affordability.
Budget - Around $150
Source - Desktop
Requirements for Isolation - Indoor use, some isolation is appreciated (but not required).
Will you be using these Headphones in Public? - No.
Preferred Type of Headphones - Full-sized, but I am open to other types. No microphone.
Preferred tonal balance - I guess I like a deeper bass, but it shouldn't drown the rest of the sounds... It will be mostly used for gaming, music and the occasional movie/series.
Past headphones - Logitech G930
Preferred Music - Rock, heavy metal, classical, pop
What would you like to improve on from your set-up - "Better sound quality", I don't really know how to translate that in more technical terms... Surround sound would be very welcome. Wireless would also be welcome, but a detachable cable is more than enough. Also very important: comfort. I use my headphones everyday for prolonged times (4 hours or more) and I wear glasses, so it's quite common that the sides of my head where the glasses rest gets painful after a while with the headphones on. Avoiding that would be very appreciated. Durability is also important, I'd like for this headphone to last for at least 3 years, hopefully 5 or more.
Logitech G930s. I have had a pair for 3 or 4 years now. They are wireless but with a great connection. The receiver is usb and installs quickly. The mic sounds great and is good at reducing ambient noise (ex. I can sit next to a server and still carry on a professional phone call). Battery life is a few days of average use. Really All around a great headset.
I know nothing about audio terminology, but it sounds a lot cooler for this game. I don't usually like to keep it on for games, but for this, the voices sound more like they are coming from around you, rather from out of the headset.
Here's the headset I use if you want to look more into it
I love these. I've had two pair over the past.... 6 years? (damn!)
The audio quality, range, and durability are all excellent.
I've played a couple seasons of TagPro w/ these babies and I've never had any complaints with them.
There is one minor software flaw with them, but that is easily fixed by installing an older driver for Windows.
Anyway, hope this helps.
I have a Logitech G930, seems okay to me.
I have noticed diving for that button a lot of times it fucks me up.
Well, you have a trade off then. If cables keep getting tangled, you either need a way to deal with that, or you have to deal with charging a wireless headset.
If you want the wireless route, I used this back in the day. It was a pretty solid headset that you can charge and play with, but the pleather ear cups did flake off a bit after use. If that's something you can deal with, it's worth the sale price it's currently at.
My friend has a headset that I want and is trying to sell it to me for $51. The headphones he is talking about is the Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G9300
Is this a good deal for me?
I use these wireless surround sound headphones. It's nice to ditch a cable whenever possible, and I think good surround sound really adds to the VR experience.
I use these
Battery life on the amazon page says up to 10 hours per charge but i never try to run it that long
I've dropped mine more times than i can count and it's very durable
One hell of an employer you must be
I will most likely get down-voted to death for saying this but check out the Logitech g930 wireless headset they are cheap , work and sound great.
I own two pairs of studio quality headphones at home but when I want to go wireless these are the ones for me .
are incredibly comfortable and last hours and hours wirelessly. I have a really, really big head and the band on top never hurts my head like other headsets do. The ear part goes over your ear and the padding is cloud like.
I love wireless because I hate having to take headsets on and off when I need to get up for whatever reason. The range on them is about 40 feet.
The sound isn't perfect and the mic is no Blue Yeti, but I cannot emphasize enough the awesomeness of being able to listen to a movie/tv show or talk to friends while walking around my apartment doing chores.
But again you fail to understand how the logitech g930 are great for gaming.
They sound awesome when playing video games ( look at any twitch streamer or professional game stream you will see them all using the logitech g930 wireless headset)
they are wireless so if you don't need wires !
for the price and quality you get out of them they are very cheap less then $70 on amazon
Show me a wired headset that's priced lower then this with a amp that can deliver a better gaming experience.
Interesting, I've always been unsure about stand alone mics, fearing that they would get noise, keyboard sounds and even some feedback if i decide to use my main speakers instead of the headset.
I'm assuming the blue snowball is much higher in voice quality, though I'm not planning on doing any streaming or whatsoever.
Reddit is advising me with, any thoughts by any chance?
And Thank you so much for helping. Much is appreciated buddy
I am personally using the Logitech G930 Gaming Headset which is 'surround sound' usb wireless headphones and microphone. I got them on sale a few months back for less than I could find regular wireless headphones so I took a chance on them. It all works rather seamlessly; they live in our media cabinet with the dongle, and when I'm up late (or early) I just get them out, plug in the usb dongle and turn them on and everything comes through my headphones rather than my receiver (which the PC is plugged into via HDMI).
What SSD would you recommend instead?
Well I wasn't thinking of doing the crazy expensive headsets.. just something like this
Es no bueno?
Hate to steer you away from what you want but I just bought this Logitech G930s and they are they best headset I has had, comfy af - amazing sound quality and a wonderful mic.
Logitech Wireless G930. They're over the ear, have 3 additional programmable buttons (I use them to take snapshots or activate comms), 7.1 surround, good base, wireless, and have a microphone for in game talking.
I have no personal experience with this headset, but i have heard it is pretty good. Logitech G930
I currently own Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 with 7.1 Surround Sound and think they sound amazing, but after reading your post I'm considering on upgrading. Can you recommend me a pair ?
Another one you can look at is the logitech G930 which is on sale on amazon for 80$. It is wireless, 7.1 and loved by many. Though the hyper x cloud 2 is still a great option.
Amazon Link: [link]
Best recommendation I can give is the Logitech G930s.
I've been using them for around 3 months now and enjoy them thoroughly. Wireless range is good, USB support is excellent and sound is miles above my old Razer black sharks. As a bonus, as of 4-30-16 they are on sale on amazon for $86.49 (just bought for girlfriend)
Link to Amazon:
I currently have the logitech G930. Pretty comfortable, pretty good noise cancellation, pretty good mic noise cancellation, and it's only ~$70 when on sale. It's wireless though
I have this one. I enjoy it, the sound is good, I haven't had many disconnect issues unless I wander to the other side of my house. I has pretty impressive range, sitting down next to the little stick I have had no problems with it dropping the connection. Yet. Only had it 5 months.
I use a logitech g930 and OBS to record/stream. Its possible that the overall acustics in the room are picked up. As its fairly large open area.
I don't actually have scripts. Outside of the run notes or contact front videos. I actually have no idea on how to do any kind of editing. Its one of the things I have in mind should I launch a patreon or something like that. But this is encouraging.
Hope is to make the idea of gming less intimidating to newer people. The idea that it makes you wanna gm again is also encouraging
I can't wholeheartedly recommend this headset anymore because the latest drivers have issues with Windows 10. But since you're paying about the same amount there's also a wireless version Logitech G930 Headphones.
I've owned several pairs of those over the years and have been happy with them overall. But recently driver problems with Win 10 has me looking for alternatives. Maybe someone else can chime in with their experience with Logitech Gaming Software and 7.1 sound. I've had more trouble than anything else with the software/headphones since upgrading Windows and am at the point where I'm giving up until a fix comes around.
I've heard the Logitech G930 is pretty good. It's a bit more than your $60 budget though, and I would definitely read the reviews about it (I've heard it has an issue with disconnecting sometimes). There's a wired version (The G35) that might be less prone to those issues.
I personally use the Wireless Gold from Sony though, haven't had much issue with it.
Aww that's so awesome of you! I'm sure your brother will love it :)
And that case is beautiful... I also have a NZXT case, the phantom, but I'm starting to hate it because it's so damn big :(.
I have almost the same keyboard, CM Quick Fire TK with browns. How do you like your headset? I'm thinking of upgrading to a wireless one as well but I'm just not sure about the battery life and stuff like that (if you care this is the one I'm thinking of getting).
The Logitech G930 is amazing. Gaming, Music, and videos sound great, Bass is amazing and the clarity is the best ive ever heard on a headset, not to mention you can switch from 7.1 Surround to stereo on the fly.. I couldn't imagine why you'd want to for anything anyway.. plus the software is pretty easy to use. It's wireless and i can use it just fine from halfway across the house. (Good for cooking and jamming to music :P)
It's on sale right now on amazon and some other websites for roughly $70 USD (Full price is $160 USD.) [link]
Hell... that's a better deal than what i bought MINE for at Best Buy for $80+tax.
For horror games... F.E.A.R 1 and 2 were pretty good. Scared the bajesus out of me a hell of a lot in 2. But usually everyone has them in their steam inventories anyway. I'd say just get him a Steam card if it's available where you live if you want to give him more games :P
Personally I went with the Logitech G930's specifically because they were 7.1 surroundsound, on sale, and wireless. I think they are great! I hear stuff in games I've never heard before and it helps a ton when playing games like Arma 3 where direction audio plays a big part.
Although they are priced a bit higher than the link you posted. Not sure what your price range is:
Logitech G930 its a great headset cheap as well streamers like Dyrus use it as their primary headset.
No problem. I would get something like g430 with 7.1 channel or g930
Here you go.
Got this one right now and am very happy with it. Battery life is 10 hours so more than enough. Sound is great and mic works great as well (plus some option voice changing options for why not)
If you want even cheaper you could also check out the G230 or G35, but I do not have any experience with those. Although they appear to be quite good quality wise.
Out of curiosity what type of headphone was it?
I have a spare pair of these..I think that my brother left behind, barely used at all. He went AWOL across the country so won't be looking for them ever.
i have those logitech speakers! but i don't ever use them to game on csgo. it's harder for me to determine enemy footsteps, so i use my headset (logitech g930) which works perfectly.
i'd honestly recommend you just buy a good pair of headphones instead of getting an okay set of speakers and an average pair of headphones. the g930 is on sale for half off ($80) and has free shipping! 7.1 surround sound will help you in game and the mic can allow you to communicate with your team.
i used to only use the g930 for everything and loved it. the only reason i have these speakers is so when people come over, they can listen too (like if i'm showing them videos or listening to music).
I have been using this headset for years for mmo gaming and playing my steam games. Never had an issue, I would highly recommend this headset.
Yeah never know with these electronics, I would upgrade to another logitech though. This is the one I have:
Have had it for over a year now and still works great. Quality is 5/5.
Budget: 250$ CAD
Source: PC (S/PDIF or 3.5 mm stereo [TRS])
Past headphone: Tritton 720+ (These are the ones I am replacing. The decoder box and the amount of wiring required make it an incredibly cumbersome)
Hey guys I'm looking to replace my Tritton 720+. As stated above, they take a lot of place on my desk which makes it incredibility inconvenient to use. I'm thinking about setting them up on my PS4 and leaving them there. I'm not much of an audiophile, as those were the most expensive Headset I had ever bought, but I'm looking into getting a quality one (not marketed for gamers). I'm currently looking at the Logitech G930, I have a pair available to me at work and find them extremely comfortable and the wireless extremely convenient. If anyone has suggestions for over the ear wireless/bluetooth it would be much appreciated.
EDIT: Scratch my original budget. I just saw that Sennheiser HD598 are on sale for 240$ on amazon.ca. It seems everyone speaks highly of them. Are they a good choice and also, I've never tried Open-Cans before. How much sound leakage is there actually?
As the other's have said, extension cords.
However, bluetooth isn't the only wireless headphones option, you can also get RF wireless headphones, the pairing is more reliable, quality is generally higher as well, has a usb dongle that plugs into the laptop. Example.
There is this great Logitech headset. [link] I can vouch for Logitech's quality because i have the 40$ dollar version and it's kickass so the 100$ variant is also going to be great
There is this great Logitech headset.
I can vouch for Logitech's quality because i have the 40$ dollar version and it's kickass so the 100$ variant is also going to be great
I was going to suggest these guys because I bought them for $80 a couple weeks back, but it looks like the price went up. Sad, because they're perfect for what I needed and I can't recommend them enough.
For around $100 you can get the Logitech G930, there is a slightly cheaper corded version. Still the audio quality is great and you get a good three hours battery life wireless (can you can charge and use it at the same time if needed).
It's pricey, but the Logitech G930's are amazing. Surround sound, fairly comfortable for most people's heads, and great quality sound.
I have the Logitech G930. It has 7.1 Surround Sound, Wireless and can also be used with wire. Great battery life, at least 6-7 hours. Best headset ever!
Cheapest is from Amazon for about $120.
I was actually considering this model, the one i have they don't make anymore. I was looking at going big and getting this one but at the moment i may be on a budget, so i may get that one and if i get a more expensive one, it never hurts to have a back up.
I've had my HD598s for a couple years now and while they've been a huge upgrade from my previous headsets (things like the logitech gaming headsets) I've been looking at getting a semi-significant upgrade. I've been mostly looking at the HD650s, 700s and the AKG k712s, trying to find a good balance of looks cool (I really like the k712 design) and sounds good (only heard good things about the 650s and mostly positive about the 700s, but I'm not a huge fan of the latter's looks).
Disclaimer: I'm very new to general headphones shopping so forgive my inexperience here.
Budget - $400-500USD, fairly flexible
Source - My desktop, through a to-be-determined DAC/amp (currently have an e10k but I've been eyeing The Element for quite some time, if anyone has any input on that that'd be great too)
Requirements for Isolation - None
Will you be using these Headphones in Public? - No
Preferred Type of Headphone - Full-sized/over-ear
Preferred tonal balance - Haven't experienced a huge variety of headphones to say for sure or really develop a strong preference, but I do like some good bass. Hopefully looking for something that will pack a bit more of a punch than my 598s.
Past headphones - The aforementioned 598s. As I said the bass isn't super great on them, but I understand that that's just kind of how it is with open-back cans, and I don't particularly hate that about them, just something I'd like to improve. That's pretty much my only complaint though, I do enjoy these headphones, just looking to upgrade to something more mid-upper range.
Preferred Music - My listening habits seem to change every few weeks. Plenty of classical for when I'm working, but I've been on a big lofi indie folk punk binge lately. In general I keep coming back to classic rock and some electronic music though. I also do some movie watching and a lot of gaming on the same computer, if that affects anything (I know plenty of big-name streamers use 650s but not sure if there's a specific reason for that).
What would you like to improve on from your set-up - Since I don't have any real hard complaints with my current phones I'm not sure if I can pinpoint specific areas I'm looking to improve. Coming from these things to the 598s was so night-and-day that I haven't considered specifically what points I'd prioritize.
Edit: I'm also not solely trying to chose between the three headphones I mentioned above, but those would probably be my top three choices at the moment, I'm definitely open to other suggestions!
I bought about 2 months ago the Logitech G930 and they are very good. A big plus is that you can find almost all the parts if you need a replacement. A new model is out too but it is more expensive
I speak quietly and have a low voice, making volume a tricky critter. First off, I recommend using VoiceMeeter for straightforward audio balancing (excellent guide for VoiceMeeter setup)
When I used to use a headset mic, I had the mic at 100% in windows with a +12db boost in VoiceMeeter for all right volume level (something like -16db output)
For further comparisons, I next ran a Samson Q2U as USB with included windscreen minus metal grille at 8%(!) windows, either +12db or +0db VoiceMeeter (memory is foggy). The Q2U has great output when you are on top of the mic. As for currently, I use a Shure SM57 + extra jank
The only comment I've gotten about the progression was the g930 was fine, so try your best with what you have first :-) Should you feel the need to buy a dedicated microphone, the Q2U is an excellent start
Used in public:
Improvement from current setup:
note: I do not have an amp, so if it's required that would be included in the budget. Thanks :)
I use these
Nothing fancy, but they work for the price.
Best headphones with Mic option around $100?
Just need decent quality for gaming.
also it would be nice if I didn't have to look like optimus prime with all the lights and crazy angles on these things.
~~Logitech G930 look like a good deal..never gone wireless before though~~ never mind I scared myself out of wireless already
Looking at hyperX cloud II now
Concur on music helping code. I suggest soundtracks, they are purpose written to keep your interest in something but not take the focus. Daft Punk's Tron soundtrack is some of my favorite coding music.
I use two different pairs. Bought myself a Logitech G930 on a black friday special, really like the microphone automute features and controls on the ears. Were originally my work cans, currently in my home office.
My company went jabber/skype and they bought us Plantronics Voyagers. The ANC feature is surprisingly useful on these things, as is the ability to simultaneously connect with computer and mobile phone.
Any interest in the Logitech G930?
I'd sell mine for $40 shipped.
I have used these for a while and they are really good!
Can't speak for the ones you posted but this [link]
Is the best all around headset I've ever owned
Best Buy and Amazon have the Logitech G930 for $69.99 ($90 off list price) and the Corsair H2100 for $59.99 ($40 off list price) right now. Both are wireless and 7.1.
Wireless (and headsets in general) aren't ideal, but personally, I'm willing to trade some sound quality for the convenience.
Wireless Headphones :
All of them that I know are bluetooth, but I would recommend this one as it is cheap and decent quality:
And that's why I have a gaming headset :P
These are for PC and I have them. They work pretty well.
I was looking into some good headsets and was really hoping to getthe Astro's for $100 but since those are not on sale, I also liked these pair. I crossed out the Logtiech G930 wireless because everyone said they are really crappy overall and the only other one I am considering at the moment are the Roccat. If you know where I could get a pair of Astro's for $100 that would be awesome!
really? thats weird...
these were the ones I got, impulse buy really, but delivers to Ireland fine [link]
[link] This headset might fit dat cranium. Wireless, and it expands pretty big.
cheaper right now on amazon $67.99 + free one day (with prime)
Just picked up a few of these babies and am REALLY loving the sound and immersion.
Logitech g930 is perfect for you.
The Logitech G930's is the best headset I have ever owned.
G930 is $80 new on amazon atm.
Looking for a wireless headset (headphones/mic in one unit) for a Windows 10 PC.
Budget - Under $150
Source - Windows PC. My motherboard if that matters.
Requirements for Isolation - Average, don't need 100% noise cancelling but a little isolation would be nice.
Preferred Type of Headphone- Over the ear.
Preferred tonal balance - Generally lean warm, but for these purposes just assume normal balance.
Past headphones - I had/have Logitch G930s and really enjoyed them. The battery life has gotten quite short, but my real problem with them is that with certain applications and games, the audio becomes very one sided. Yes, one headphone is much, much louder than the other. After a great amount of fiddling and internet research, I found this was simply a driver problem with certain applications running on Windows 8 and up. Since I can't return my headset I am selling them to a friend and buying a new pair.
Preferred Music - Mostly jazz.
Other Requirements - I really like the function buttons on my old G930 (volume control. rewind/forward/pause buttons) but the one function this headset MUST have is a physical MUTE button. This, and being wireless, are my two necessities.
Yes I know I could get a better pair of headphones and separate ModMic for cheaper, but I really enjoy the convenience of a headset/mic single unit so that is what I am looking for.
Thanks for reading and thanks for your input.
G930 are on sale at Amazon can price match at best buy 79.99 [link]
Okay. So I am getting a new headset. my current one has been breaking down and just getting kinda crappy.
My first thought is. Should I get another Logitech G930 (which I have one already but started breaking down at the micro USB charger.)
So my first thought is, if I go wireless my cons are this already;
My modem is a dual-band 2.4ghz & 5ghz, so it could have some problems from that, though I can disable the 5ghz as one of the laptops we have has a older WLAN card.
the biggest thing about this is I work from home and the software we use
So for the wireless game changers we have the
Logitech G930 for 80 dollars Here
Astro A50 Wireless for 200 refurbished, 300 new: Here
Corsair Gaming H2100 And this guy for 84.99
Now another ball park is for a wireless headset without a mic. These can be paired but I am looking into some.
Mic Blue Yeti This for 129.99
I am looking into headsets without mics that are wireless.
I am currently using a Razer Chroma 7.1 but it is just crappy for too much.
Any ideas for a replacement?
These just went on sale.
Hi guys, looking for a wireless headset with a microphone. I listen to music and game occasionally on my PC so I need the microphone to talk to friends. I'm not really an audiophile, I would just like something that sounds decent and is comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
Budget Up to $200
Source Desktop PC, phone (if possible)
Requirements for Isolation Don't care that much.
Preferred Type of Headphone Over ears
Preferred tonal balance Don't care that much.
Preferred Music House / trance
I have a few in mind:
My son is using G930 and he likes them.
This is what I use:
Wearing comfortable headphones when I work in office is a must for me. When I used to go in office all the time I used my gaming headset: [link] They are insanely comfortable, and have great range allowing you to walk around a bit (at home I can wear them when I get up to get food or use the restroom without breaking connection). I also had to make a lot of calls through my computer, so the mic helped a lot.
I recently picked a pair of these up on sale for my new travel set and I really like them, though the cable isn't super long for the office: [link]
Also you should fill your desk with these:
Source: PC and Laptop 95% of the time.
Requirements for Isolation: Isolation is pretty nice but not required.
Preferred Type of Headphone: Full-sized, Closed but open-minded to suggestions.
Preferred tonal balance: Balanced I guess. I'm new to the 'real' headphone world.
Past Headphones: Logitech G930, Audio-Technica ATH-M30 and before those just misc. $20-40 logitech, microsoft brands growing up.
Preferred Music: I just listen to a lot of everything really. I listen to R&B, Rock, Pop, House, Disco, Trap, Chill / Meditation music, Video Game music (OST/Classical), KPop and JPop. I also watch quite a lot of movies and love horror specifically.
Any other details: I've had my eye on the Bowers & Wilkins P7. I love how they scream quality and they look comfortable. Looks like they have pretty good reviews as well.
The best sound I know are my Logitech G930s. I don't have an Amp / Mixer / DAC so I am looking forward to step away from the 'gaming' mindset because I think even headphones meant for music are better 'gaming' headphones/headsets.
Budget: roughly $100, preferably less though.
Isolation: I don't care about isolation for me, but I'm buying these so I can listen while someone is sleeping in the same room so I'd imagine isolation would help with that?
Type: Full sized
Tonal balance: balanced
Past head phones: Turtlebeach earforce px 2
Liked: Nothing really stands out.
Disliked: They were wired. I'm looking for something wireless
Preferred music: Muse is a pretty good example of the stuff I would listen to. Everything else would just be audio from videos or group chats.
Things I'm specifically looking for: Wireless, comfortable, preferably with a mic.
I've been looking at these but I'm interested in finding something better for cheaper. [link]
I also liked these but they don't have a mic, and I don't know how I feel about the cloth earpads.
Logitech G930 for $99 Wireless is good. :D
I am looking into buying my first pair of nice headphones to replace my gaming headset. I currently use a Logitech G930 which is nice but doesnt have the sound quality I thought it did (recently tried a friend's nice pair of sennheiser headphones and was blown away at the difference. I cant recall model right now, sorry). I looked in the buying guide on the sidebar and picked out the CAL! 2. I plan on using them at home on my gaming computer and on my phone/laptop for music. It having a built in mic is also a bonus.
I have 3 questions regarding my situation.
1) Do i need to buy any sort of amp or other peripherals ( forgive my lack of knowledge im fairly new at this) to get the most out of these?
2) I was looking at buying this splitter as recommended by amazon for use on my computer with a mic. Will using that cable degrade sound quality at all?
3) Will the built in "sound booster" on my motherboard(MSI Z97 Gaming 5) do anything for me or should I simply ignore those features? With that is ther any other sort of software I should be using to manage the sound from my computer?
What do you guys think of the Logitech G930's for $69.99?
Hear me out:
I already have 558's, but when I'm using my Oculus Rift (Head Mounted Display for those unfamiliar), having three wires (Rift, 558, and Zalman mic) starts getting messy and tangled while playing. Normally I wouldn't have considered these, but seeing them that cheap got me thinking they might not be too bad for when I'm using the Rift (also would make me less nervous than when I demo the Rift to people and they have my 558's on!)
This isn't something I need, the price just seems pretty good considering the normal markup you see on wireless cans.
Wireless headphones : Best headphones
For the computer: Logitech Wireless 7.1 Surround Sound Headset
For the gym: Wireless bluetooth headphones
Anywhere else I just use the earbuds that come with the iPhone.
Check these out. Sorry if it's hitting the budget..
If you wanted something a little cheaper, Look at these.
Logitech G930 Wireless with USB recharge (can run plugged in) for $99
Logitech G430 Wired, USB for $65
Both are 7.1 Surround, super comfortable, and the mic quality is spot on.
The Logitech Software suite is also very nice and easy to use.
The wireless range and quality on the G930 is top notch. I've been using mine for around 18 months. I recently replaced the ear pads for $8 and they're good as new. They also take a beating, built very sturdy.
ah, perhaps its cause of Canada, and the amazon US is shipping from curcuit city for only 89.99 looks like canadians got a little less lucky :/
I'm looking at for something maybe around ~$100. Right now I'm eyeing the G930. Anyone have experiences with it?
I've been using these for nearly 6 months they are pretty awesome for gaming. I also have some turtle beaches for my xbox but they just feel cheap the sound quality is nothing compared to my G930 Logitechs the wireless feature is really nice especially if you play WoW(you can stroll around your house whilst still talking on ventrilo/Skype which is handy for those quick sandwich breaks without anyone noticing).
My headphones that I use for my xbox/laptop. If you can afford the G930 Logitechs do get them they are super comfortable even after 8+ hours of gaming and the noise cancellation/surroud sound is amazing. Also about the microphone its really decent quality and there is a handy mute button on the side of the headset that you can easily press if you want to talk to someone without it going through your mic ;)
Edit: Not sure why but they are $139 on US amazon and £139 on the UK amazon( Im from UK and I just noticed the lower cost on US amazon zz)
I've also been looking for a good headset/headphones. I've been thinking about either the G930 ($115, a little out of your price range) or the HD555 ($85) and pairing it with a stand-alone mic.
I've read that the G930 7.1 surround is actually pretty decent, which I was surprised to see...
I think you might want to get a hold of Mukesh again:
I agree but I the logitech g930 are only $79.90 .
Good wireless pair with a mic.
I own both of these and use them both daily. The 930 stays at home on my desktop and I take the bluetooth headphones with me everywhere. I use them for my laptop and the battery and sound is freaking crazy. It also has a built in mic as well. When the battery finally needs a charge you can use the audio cable and they become normal headphones.
I use them a few hours a day and the charge usually last all week. Overall really good Bluetooth headphone.
you've never heard of the g930 have you [link]
Logitech have amazing quality for a headset (at least imo, cause im not a pretentious audiophile who shits on anything that isnt from sennheiser or audio technica)
For $80 you could also get Logitech G930 wireless.
Logitech is always a good option.
This is what I use 7.1 Surround sound they sound amazing and everything sounds clear. Also the microphone on it is pretty good.
Logitech G930 Alternatively there's the G430 which is wired and cheaper.
i recommend These its 7.1 surround sound and it's also wireless, Also theirs a sound wheel on the side of the headset and 3 buttons that you can customize . It's great and its currently like 40% off.
If you truly want a gaming headset, get the Logitech G930's. I recommend these so often, I feel like Logitech should pay me as a sales rep. They are wireless, sound good (not great, but pretty good), have great battery life, and a crazy good range. Plus they are extremely comfortable, more comfortable than my Beyerdynamic DT770's. All for around $105. But, if your main priority is sound quality, listen to what the others have to say and get a regular pair of headphones with a zalman.
I have a Wireless Logitech G930 with 7.1 surround sound. The sound quality is amazing, and you can switch it between surround sound and mono sound with an easy switch of a button on the headset. Battery life of continuous use is probably close to 8 hours, but you can still use it while plugged in with its plenty long micro-usb charging cord.
The mic does go up and automutes in the "up" position, and theres also a mic mute button next to the scrolling volume control. You can very quickly turn up and down sound without pressing a button multiple times because of the scrolling feature on it, like a mouse scroll button.
I absolutely love this headset. It also has 3 programmable buttons that you can set to stop, play, pause, etc. I use both iTunes and Windows Media Player, and I can quickly and easily pause the music or podcast just by reaching up next to the volume button. There is no button for an absolute sound mute though, but you might be able to set that as a programmable button. I haven't experimented with that cuz my keyboard does have a "mute all sound" button.
It's $100 but it was perfect for what I wanted it for which was voice communication while gaming. If you want wireless headphones, get these ones.
All in all, these are the best headphones I have ever owned, and I have had them for about a year so far with absolutely no problems so far.
Mic does not pick up sound from the headphones, and has a noise cancelling microphone that won't pick up most external sounds unless they are extremely loud.
Amazon: Logitech G930 Headset
I have the Logitech G930s, couldn't be happier. They are relatively pricey, but are simulated 7.1 surround which is great for sp games and have an excellent mic when wanting to speak. Currently on sale for around $100, which is twice your asking price, but you get what you pay for. [link]
Yeah not to sound arrogant but I asked if the pro had after seeing ps4's new dualshocks. I'm like THIS is what Nintendo should have added! But oh well I guess you can't get everything BUT it would have been perfect for smash, I'm sure some modder might make custom pro controllers with such a feature... Or does the Wii U support bluetooth headsets like this
I use these headphones/mic:
Best I have ever used. I have also confirmed that 5.1 surround does work with these headphones and CS:GO
Seriously, this or this.
In my opinion, probably best headset for price. Plus it's on sale!
The best headphones I've ever owned are these Logitech g930s. 7.1 Surround, Wireless, and cheap to boot. Highly recommend them.
Has good battery life, is quite comfortable, great (7.1!) audio quality, and lots of neat little features (mic mutes when flipped up, volume and multimedia controls on the earpiece, other neat things). Normally it's quite expensive, but it's not uncommon for them to come down a bit in price. I think I got mine on sale somewhere for around $120. Also, the wireless range is pretty great; I can listen without issue through several doors on the other side of my apartment.
