Looking for a New Headset.


Looking for a new headset the one I use currently is a Razer Kraken 7.1 v2, I REALLY enjoy the feel of this headset and would LOVE to keep a similar if not the same feel. I would also love to go Wireless over wired, but its not a deal breaker. Im not brand loyal in the slightest but a Logitech headset would be bonus points as I already havequite a few Logi Periphials, but again, Not a deal breaker. Any ideas? Im thinking just sticking with the Kracken line and going to the V3 Pro's but dont know how they feel over the 7.1 v2's (I hope similar) I know Im probably never going to find an exact feel to my broken in v2's but I would love to get as close as possible.

I tend to recommend audiophile grade over gamer grade because they sound good on everything not just games.  I also tend to recommend wired over wireless because it opens up your options quite a lot.


But there is something to be said for wireless gamer headsets, mainly because it's an all in one package that doesn't need a dac and amp plus it's got the benefit of wireless.


Still for the budget I personally think that the Rode NTH-100M is going to be a way better experience because it doesn't care if you're running from onboard audio or a good dac/amp, it just sounds good no matter what.


If you are thinking about going with this headset I'll go more into detail, but for the price of the V3 you will be getting far superior audio quality at the trade off of creature comforts.

I personally use the Sony WH-1000XM4. I dont typically use "Gamer grade" headsets, as i honestly hate RGB lol. Had them about 2 years now, and they've never skipped a beat. They also come with a 3.5mm audio input so this is how i connect them to my pc. I dont bother using Bluetooth when connected to pc as you have to deal with the latency issues.


Hope this helps ^^
