That said, I remember from the time I had a Xonar that the drivers were always pretty crap.
Thanks to this thread, I now have a Superlux HD681, which is a fantastic headphone. The sound is an astounding difference to my Siberia v2, although it's not quite as comfortable. I'm hoping this wears off over time though, as I currently can't wear it for very much longer than ~1 hour :/
I'm necroing this thread to avoid creating a new one.
I'm looking at buying a nice but somewhat cheap headset and looking at local retailers this one (Plantronics Gamecom 367) caught my eye. The weight is the only thing that doesn't convince me so I'd like to hear if any of you know about it. This other one (logitech H390) could be an option.
Otherwise I'm thinking about getting some Phillips Shp2500 and be done with it.
This stuff gets too expensive here and most of the models I've seen mentioned in some of the threads here are impossible to get so I'm seeing what I can get for a decent price here and could use some help.
I used to be like you (except with much more fur, obv), and was looking for a headset in that range. However, one bloke recommended me the Sennheiser PC 310. It is slightly more expensive then the logitiech H390 you listed there, but the sound quality is awesome and the thing is very light weigth. Since I have never actually owned any headsets that fell within the price range you mentioned, that is all I can recommend.
Logitech is pretty much hit and miss in my experience. I bought the g330 last week and found out that is shipped in a broken state, googling it shows that it's not working for a lot of people. Be sure to inform yourself about their stuff before. Anyway, got a plantronics gamecom 780 instead, and it works pretty well.
Also I recommend not doing your research on the producers website itself. Look for reviews online and try to find samples of actual recording to judge sound quality (that's how I did it).
