Lol finding this URL for VAG was difficult. Still not buying one since I got one last round.

Not to diminish this video, but rtings.com is the best place to see all the details and tests for headsets, that's how I went with my headset choice (they have frequency responses and microphone tests in quiet and noisy environments).

Anyone else feel like this one was a slap in the face? I've been refreshing everyday on the LTT YT and social medias waiting for the drop. I make it to the video the second it's posted and couldn't figure out the url.  I guess a lot of my attempts were close. I kept adding and removing words like fan, 4th gen, microfin, coppercooling, msi etc. I also tried a bunch of dashes after I kept failing. I guess I was wrong in assuming it was liquidcooled instead of liquid. Are they purposefully trying to make it complicated so it can be shared among big groups like floatplane and their discord, so individuals don't have a chance?

I'm new to Photography but enjoy it. I also run a Pentax *ist-DL mainly with a 18-55mm lens. I also have a 50-200 mm Pentax lens, and a Pentax 50 lens that is all it says.

This video on the 2nd half, had a video of Linus at home, but James was rambling on about the headphones in the background for me. I think youtube was confused.

I don't need a GPU, I'm just curious how they hid it. Was it an additional part of the video that they trimmed off later? It looks like a normal video currently.

Not under $100 and not wireless but I enjoy using my Audio Technica ATH-ADG1 gaming headset. Large drivers, wide frequency response, a handy mic mute button and very ergonomic ear pads and headband. It works great for Skype calls too. They even include a USB dongle in case you don't have a 3.5mm jack.

 

Of course when I have no need for a mic my goto choice is my prized Sony XB700 cans. Again, not wireless and nowhere near the price range of these budget buys, but they are the benchmark standard many audiophiles and headphone lovers will swear by. I use these paired with a TEAC UD-503 dekstop DAC running optical to my sound card. It's an expensive setup for sure, but the sound quality in games/music/movies is right up there with the best.

Hi, how you fix the issues with the Xbox gaming headset? To improve the audio to stereo and keep recording mic. Thanks.

That may be true, but you should always listen to different opinions especially with Audio since the sound if is so subjective. Plus this may have headsets rtings hasn't tested yet. 

Happy you got a good headset though. 🙂
