"Gaming" headsets are nothing we recommend here in the audio forums. We tend to recommend good quality headphones with a seperate mic or some gaming headsets that actually sound good for being a gaming headset. Such as the HyperX cloud 2's or MH751's. Reason why? Because they are reskinned from studio headphones into gaming headsets. Unlike razer and logitech which I strongly hate for audio.

PM or DM me if you have any questions about audio or about your PC.

My PC specs & audio gear

CPU > Intel core i7 9700k, GPU > RTX 2070 8gb, RAM > Corsair Vengance 2x8gb 3000mhz, Motherboard > Z390 Gigabyte Aorus Pro Wifi, Storage > 1TB HDD & 2pcs of 500gb M2 SSDs, Cooling > H100I Corsair Platinum, PSU > Corsair RM750X V2

🎧Current Audio Setup For Gaming/Music🎧

DT 990 pro 250ohm W/Straight cable and Dekoni Elite Velour Pads 

Soundblaster AE-9 Soundcard

The T.bone SC400 XLR mic

Other peripherals

Keyboard > Razer Chroma v2 Orange Switches

Mouse > Cooler Master MM711, had a G502 HERO but was too heavy for my liking.

Why spend thousands on peripherals and your PC and forget one of the most important things... Audio.

Read this post if you want a "gaming" headset ;)

thanks for the advice I'll look into the hyper x headset


Yeah they're good for both gaming and music and are comfortable. And they usually get marked down for Black Friday and Cyber Monday sells

PC Audio Setup = Astro Mixamp Pro TR (gen 4), Beyerdynamic DT 770 pro 80 ohm, Sennheiser pc37x, HyperX Cloud Alpha
