Any gaming headset recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Currently have the logitech G933 and its falling apart. Need a new headset for PC and xbox aswell if possible, the G933 is trash on console because it doesnt use the drivers so its just poor quality audio.

Im pretty hopeless when it comes to choosing, I definitely like the G933 but if theres something better around the same price range id like to know

I use a cloud alpha, though cloud stinger is pretty good too if you value comfort over sound. Clouds are really neutral in sound and i like that, i kinda hate bass.

Really like these headphones, don't personally own a pair, but my brother has a pair of cloud II. They seem to be the only gaming headphones with a metal headband. They're durable and sound pretty good. I personally have always had a condenser mic, and headphones. Just because I can keep the same mic and change headphones if I feel like it.

Philips SHP9500 + ModMic + Y adapter. Should land you around the same price as the G933.


Alternatively the Superlux 668 or Evo, though I'd replace the earpads with brainwavz.


Note: I work for ModMic and am totally biased :D 

Second Note: The ModMic Wireless is not compatible with xbox, but the 4 and 5 are as long as you have a Y adapter for the controller.
