PC37x or Corsair Virtuoso SE

Hey everyone. So long story short, I was planning on getting Sennhesier x Drop’s PC38x gaming headsets for Christmas but found out that I would have to wait until mid February to be able to get them because of the high demand. So I was planning on just settling with the PC37x since it seems like most people say the difference between the two is only really noticeable when it comes to music, which i dont really care about since i’m mostly interested in having clean and precise gaming audio for FPSs.

 

Now my friend is trying to convince me to look into the Corsair Virtuoso SE that’s on sale at Best Buy for around $165. I seem to be finding a lot of mixed reviews on these though despite my friend’s testaments that this headset is phenomenal. I’m kind of up in the air about wireless, i use to have wireless turtle beaches during my xbox days and from what i remember i absolutely loved them. what appeals to me with the virtuoso’s is that they can be used both as wired and wireless gaming headsets very easily. Plus I also like having software that I can play around with the EQ and what not despite not being an audiophile and not understanding what half of the stiff does.

 

Just to clarify, whatever I get I will be plugging them into my motherboard’s audio ports as I do not have a Dacamp or anything like that in my budget right now (Possibly want to get one a few months from now? Idk maybe). If it helps, I have a z390 Aorus Pro Wifi motherboard.

 

***TL/DR*** I’m looking for the best audio solution specifically for gaming (Games like Escape from Tarkov, Valorant, CSGO, Squad) that will cost less than $180. I know, people say “there’s no such thing as a ‘good’ gaming headset” but it’s what i’m use to and it’s the most convenient. I don’t think I really have room for a standalone mic on my desk nor do I really like that aesthetic as I’m more of just a casual competitive gamer who does not stream. I did look into mod mics and other solutions like that but idk how I felt about them.

 

Any input you guys have would be much appreciated. Thank you!

I should also mention that I do have a $50 dollar gift card for Amazon that could be factored into the solution as well!

If clean and precise is what you want the pc37x is definitely the better of the 2

Feel free to send me a DM for further or general questions.

Lyrics I vibe with or just funny right now:

Don't lie, some of y'all thought food for thought meant taking these hoes on a date"-Injury Reserve

"Some of em just need to eat a whole thing of Crest"-MF DOOM

"Is it me bruh? (Is it me bruh?)
Am I a bruh? (Am I a bruh?)
Am I that bruh? (ouu)
Eating cactus (peyote)
I looked in the mirror (ya ya)
I like what i saw (that's a handsome boy)
Cuz I saw myself (hey)
And i was the bruh (the bruh)
I am not LeBron (LeBron)
But I am the bruh (the bruh)
I have seen the bruh (the bruh)
I have reached the bruh (the bro)
Why am I a thing? (ayy)
Why do things exist? (why)
All I am is bruh
Bruh is all there's left"-Hovey benjamin

awesome, thank you so much for the input! I’m going with my gut feeling as I placed my order in for the pc37x last night. I’ve just watched too many reviews over the past two months of people claiming that the pc37x and pc38x are the best gaming headsets you could possibly get with limited complaints. Although it seems that wireless headsets have made significant strives over the past decade, i still dont trust them entirely and i feel like theres inevitably going to be some tradeoff. 

 

As for the gift card, I ended up using it on the Creative pebble plus 2.1 speaker and subwoofer combo as I wanted some desktop speakers considering I would just play the volume from my 10 year old second monitor when I wasn’t gaming. This obviously wasn’t cutting it for me. But I really appreciate your input and for making feel even more confident than I already was with the pc37x!

Mhhhhm. That definitely was my gut feeling based on the abundance of reviews I’ve watched on the pc37x/pc38x. I think the virtuosos are really elegant looking headsets and I guess it’s a plus being able to switch from wireless to wired, but I feel like there’s inevitably going to be some type of tradeoff with them particularly in the performance department which is my highest priority.

 

Thank you so much for helping me feel even more confidant than I already was with the pc37x!
