hey, my old one is now broken, only outputs sound through the right side.. so im in the market of buying a new headset... preferably the quality should be good enough to last for 2 years ish, and i dont want the dreaded "pinch" factor on my ears.

my budget is round $75

and dont give me a headset with horrible bass.

(for the first ones - 5+1)
hurts the ears if you wear it for an hour+. Force feedback sucks and just gives me a bunch of static.

the headset is really tight on your head. It does not work well with ventrilo. This headset is just plain uncomfortable...

- Feels like placing your head in a large C-clamp and gradually tightening it until your brains come out your nose.

(for the second ones - fatality) i have those currently, and i was pleased with them.. its just that the mic broke after 2 weeks...


I was thinking about the Medusa 5.1 ProGamer V2. I can't seem to find that many user reviews however.

another one i was thinking about were the Razer Carcharias . its fairly new so again no user reviews.. bleh

I broke my crappy Jensen headset on accident the other day, so I've just been using my earbuds from my MP3 player

I'm also considering the Carcharias

I bought the Carcharias from Best Buy right after I got off work (it was on the way anyway tongue.gif) smile.gif

UT3 and CS:S (what little I played anyway since my wireless card started spewing out a bunch of "NET_SendPacket ERROR:WSAEINTR" errors in my console and my lag was bad).

I'm still too shy to use my mic though sad.gif

It's pretty comfy. Much better sounding than that old crappy Jensen headset I had (I accidentally broke that one the other day)

Pretty good in-game bass IMO, IDK about music though but it sounds pretty good (I did notice some other parts of the beat of the song "Back In The Day" by Futuristic Sex Robotz that I dont recall hearing before, or if I did they weren't very clear until before I tried this headset). It sounds better than my mp3 player earbuds and of course my crappy car stereo. I have SRS enabled on WMP and it really enhances it IMO (I didn't try my earbuds with it on though).

Sorry, you are required to talk on vent or Clinton will get you VAC banned foreva. (He has his ways)
And you have a nice ass headset like the Carcharias, why would you not talk? I'm on a mic that i've been using for over 2 years now and it makes static every time the cord shifts. Apparently it's REALLY bad for the people listening in vent but I can only hear it very softly.. I guess I can use this for another year....dry.gif lol

I'm a Razer fanboy and I heard it's better than Razer's other two headsets (I don't think they still sell those at my Best Buy).

Like I said, I'm shy and softspoken.

Also the braided wires look like shoestrings biggrin.gif
