Best PC gaming headset?(r/buildapc)
Gaming-branded anything is almost guaranteed to be crap. Get yourself audiophile headsets and a clip on mic. Either modmic or this Zalman. As for the headphone, if you are super competitive and want a huge sound stage to footstep whore then go with AD700x. Those are balanced for mids but the bass isn’t all that great so they aren’t too fun. Best competitive phones in existence though.
For other headphone suggestions, see this definitive guide.
