Looking for a headset/headphones to replace my Logitech G430

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP


I've been using the Logitech G430 headset for a few years now but the plastic broke on them recently so I need to get something new.
I've been looking at either getting a new G430 or upgrading to Sennheiser GSP 300/350. I'd like too keep the cost as low as possible because I'm planning a new PC build this summer. The GSP 350's are as high as my budget would allow.

What should I do? Are the Sennheisers any good? Do you guys have any other recommendations that would be better with my budget? I'll be using them for FPS- and racing games, music (Hard rock and metal mostly) as well as to watch action movies. If there are a better setup using headphones and an external mic that would be interesting as well because I want as good sound quality and comfort as possible with my budget. 

I want them to be closed and over-ear but other than that I don't really have any requirements other than good quality

Thanks in advance!

The HyperX cloud 2 and Steelseries Arctis 7 are also good options.

I am a huge fan of steelseries.  I have been using my wireless H model for years.  Right now their arctis 7's are a little on sale. But they have other options.  Arctis 7 are high wireless.  If you wanna go more money they have extremely high end wireless or wired  ones also.   https://steelseries.com/gaming-headsets/arctis-7  PC Gamer Heradset of the year.

the GSP 300/350 is one of the best headphones under the $100 dollars budget, it is from Sennheisser after all and check out the review of the headset from this guy.

Sennheiser G4ME Ones are really good. Mic is fantastic, really comfortable ear cups. HardwareCanucks reviewed them iirc.


I'm keeping everything else the way it was for anyone who might check out my answers in future, but I won't be using LTT.

Thanks guys! This week I'm able to get Sennheiser G4me Zero for the same price as the GSP 350, should I buy them? Are they better than the GSP 350? I'm not worried about the 7.1 surround that the GSP350 has but G4me Zeros doesn't since I never used it on my G430. Regarding the G4me Ones they unfortunately aren't an option since I need closed back headphones/headset.

Thanks! I've now looked around a bit more and are thinking about the Audio-Technica ATH-M40x.

If I get those I'll probably also get these: https://www.brainwavzaudio.com/collections/headphone-pads/products/headphone-pad-angled?variant=5990832133

Are those better than the G4me Zero if I don't care that much about a mic? Are there anything better at that price?
