which head set optimized for gaming.

Recommended Posts

Broken link is broken....

 

I assume just based off of the url that those might be kingston/hyperx cloud one or cloud two headphones. If so, I choose those. If not, is still choose them anyway. 

Not a whole lot of gaming headsets are better than the Cloud Two, especially for the price.

The title makes me cringe. 

 

But ya I would pick the HyperX Clouds. Their sound isn't horrid. I never used the razer ones, so I can't say much about them.

Well people seem to think music performance is the only thing that matters in games. While in casual games that might be true, if you're looking for a "gaming optimized" headset, that means you would want to hear footsteps and stuff, and for those stuff audiophile headphones are horrid to use. It's much better to get a cheap Kraken Pro than a 300 dollar audiophile headphone for "gaming". While it won't sound as good for music/movies, it's much better for gaming where you want to hear small details like footsteps more clearly.

I completely disagree with this open headphones will blow any artificial surround headphones out of the water when it comes to positional audio

What? Getting a $12 pair of headphones can give you all the footsteps you can handle lol. "gaming headsets" are usually bass booooooosst with software positional sound...which you can get for free. And who's talking about audiophile headphones here? We're just talking about these two the OP is picking between. HyperX Clouds are around 100 normally. Goes on sale frequently. A great choice I feel. Feels solid, and sounds pretty good. Mic audio is good enough that you don't sound like you're talking throw a paper bag.

 

Mind you, audiophile headphones work great lol.

 

But if he likes razer, get razer.

Edit: *backs up* But I still love ya. I don't mean to come off harsh lol

This is from my experience, I have a pair of HD598, while not the greatest headphones, I'd consider them to sound pretty damn good. Now I use them most of the time, but I using a pair of Siberia v2, I get much clearer footsteps when I used to play CS:GO. I used the 598 for everything else, but if I needed positional audio, I always used the siberia v2, because it was alot easier to hear footsteps with.

Have you blind tested both? If it wasn't a blind test then it doesn't mean anything. 

God gave me eyes, I intend to use them. Sensory deprivation is dangerous.

I have. Razer is by far better. You're just a fan boy for some other brand (or going with whatever Linus says)

We were banging the Cloud drum long before any videos hit the tubes.

Except Linus has actually tested both, and the Razer mic sounds like total fucking aaaaaaaaasssssss.

 

OP:  I used a Steelseries Siberia v2 for a while.  Wasn't terrible, but I wouldn't go back after going to actual headphones.  Clouds sounds good though.

LMAO, you sure you're not the fanboy?

Yeah. I've tried 'em both unlike you guys.

https://soundcloud.com/ltt-mic-test  Granted these are the 7.1 being tested, but they use the same software and I think the same microphone.  You can still see how the Clouds sound, which actually sounds better than the mod mic I am using in my opinion.

First of all, this is a headset. Don't compare it with a normal microphone. Second, the sound quality also matters, it's not about the Mic only. 

 

And we've tried pretty much every headphone out there collectively. I don't understand your point. 

All of a sudden you've tried every headset, eh?
