My current headset's mic (Thermaltake Shock One) just kicked the bucket and the software for the surround sound doesn't work so I'm in need of a new headset that had similar capabilities as my previous one.
I'm looking for a decent headset w/mic for gaming/Teamspeak/VOIP. While I would like them to sound "good", audiophile-level fidelity is not a priority. In the past, I've used the cheaper (<$150) Sennheiser sets, and been pretty happy with them. I would like to go wireless, but I'm not sure what's good. Any suggestions? I'd like to stay under $150, preferably WAY under $150.
Looking for recommendations for a gaming headset with decent build quality, and real 5.1 capability for my gaming PC. Accurate sound reproduction and a good mic is what I'm looking for. Not looking to take out a bank loan, though. Something < $150.00 would suit me, though far less than that would suit me better. I prefer to plug it in versus going wireless.
Let's start by saying I hope this is the right place for this - if not then please can a Mod relocate to a better place.
So here's the story: I've just been gifted an old Dell Tower. It's about 7 years old with what was an OK Pentium at the time, it's got about 2 gigs of ram and a 250 gig hard disk and an X1100 ATi (I think) gpu.
