Help with Headset

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

 

tomorrow I will buy an headset but don't know which.

I want one that has 5.1 or really good surround and a good mic because I do YouTube videos. I know the wisest choice would be an headphone and an separate mic but I want something convenient.

 

My choices are between:

Logitech G430 - 72,90€  (81,75$)

SteelSeries Siberia V2 - 77,90€ (87,35$)

 

Those are the ones available at my store and I didn't want to spend more than 75€ (84.10$)

How about "decent"? I currently have casual headphones from Sony that cost me around 10$

Can you find hyperx cloud 1 or cloud core in your store?

Only the Cloud 1 , the Cloud 2 I find it very expensive.

Cloud 1 is great, get it.

Kingston HyperX Cloud 2, I bought them yesterday and they are amazing!

The unique con that I have is the microphone. It is very quiet and you can't boost him through audio panel in windows, however I could bypass that.

They are extremelly comfortable and offer multiple accessories. If you are more into gaming I recommend switch the leather cups for the velour pads since they leak more audio and therefore you have more perception around you

 
To this I add that somehow I get more surround sound with "7.1" disabled, I don't know if my laptop motherboard already have 7.1 virtualization but in fact, the built-in surround isn't that good.

Whats the sub-bass and bass on those headphones? How do they sound? Can you describe the sound overall? Thanks!

Well, I'm not an expert but this HyperX put to shame my Sennheiser RS 120 ii , I thought they were the most comfortable and sounding thing I've ever had but no, my ear fits perfectly inside the Cloud 2 and the sound is crystal clear. The bass however it is there, you will want to have an external EQ to increase the bass but even with default settings and running some audio samples from youtube and other side the bass is stunning, no distortion at all and you feel the vibrations.
 
If you really want this headset then don't think twice, however if you don't need the mic with the same price or a little higher you can buy an AKG or Audio Technica, they are stereo but Razer has a free 7.1 virtualization. This headset also have virtual 7.1 so you lose nothing.
 
Sound Overall: 9/10 , why didn't I give them a ten? Well, nothing is perfect and as default they could have  more noticeable bass but once again, this is something you could do with an EQ if you really like to hear heavy bass music or explosions like I do.
