What headphones/headset are you using?

Hey all,

 

I'm currently using a Turtle Beach HPA2 headset. It's one of those true 5.1 headsets with 4 drivers in each cup. However, I'm using them with only the 2 stereo drivers in Dolby Headphone mode and they sound fantastic. With the exception of the right side earcup sub driver being busted. Oh, and I lost the mic so I can't really communicate effectively in game.

 

Anyway, I'm looking to replace/upgrade and just wanted to get a feel of what all of you are using as your primary headphones/headset.

 

Thanks,

Cobb

So far I like them, have had them for about 8 months. Thought the cable would annoy me, but it doesn't because it's long enough. My only wish is for some sort of indicator when the mic is on or off. When I first got them I thought the mic was on so people couldn't hear me (and it occasionally still happens if I bump it while putting them on.)

I love them, the sound quality is great and they are super comfy. I can wear them for long periods of time without a problem.

 

When I was researching around I didn't find a ton of reviews on them but everything I did read was positive, so I took the plunge and haven't had a regret yet.

Just clicked your link pronouncemyname, I didn't know they made white ones but you can see my review above. I believe Jackie uses them too and has been happy.

Bought my first headset to go along with my other Corsair products, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826816005

Though I really use it only for the mic, sound quality is amazing but damn it gets hot fast with the cotton like material.

 

Now for headphones oh boy...! I'm a addict when it comes to these things

I am currently using a Logitech G35 Headset. The microphone quality is great the only disappointment is the driver for Mac OS X cannot separate the output into 7.1 channel it can only do stereo. This is more an inherent problem with Mac OS X though and not the device itself.

Thanks. If you don't mind a question, do they work with mp3 players too? I've never bought a mic before so I have no clue what I'm doing xD

Yes. They have the 2 analog 3.5mm jacks, one for audio (so you can plug in to your mp3 player) and the other for a mic. The mic retracts in to the headset so you don't look to nerdy walking around town. It also comes with some extension cables so you can easily disconnect from your PC to hit the road.

I just got the Rosewill 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset RHTS-8206. These replaced the terrible Razer Carcharias I had. Great sound at a decent price.

The Steelseries Siberia headsets spoiled me for headsets. I would never use anything other than those now. They are so dang comfortable to wear. Not heavy, feel like they're not even there sometimes. LONG cord, extremely durable...they're just the best headsets I've ever used.

I think I know what I'm buying next month. Thanks!

When you say retract is it virtually seamless or does it leave a knob like when you disconnect the mic from a turtle beach headset?

It retracts in to the left side, however it does stick out a tiny bit. It doesn't stick out quite as much as those turtle beach headphones in the picture.
