Alright tons of threads are posted like this just as a bullshit way to increase post count. Well on this post, I really do need a opinion to help me weigh a decision I am currently making. Im a huge audio nut, I mean I spend more than the average person on audio related stuff. This time im looking for a low budget headset for under $180 but I need mic quality, comfort and most import of all, audio quality and low end and middle frequency responses. To be specific I want a big soundstage (Not very easy to find with headphones under 200) but I have already purchased the M50x's im looking to use them for external use. I now need a great gaming headset for strictly computer use. Im used to spending around a minimum of $300 on headphones and never really purchased a headset other than a Hyper X Cloud and the headset literally does not sit on my head anymore because it has become so stretched out. And im just sick of them falling off my head when I bend over or have my head at a angle.

Im currently looking at ATH-PG1's

But considering the SteelSeries Arctis 7, I have never really cared for wireless connections since wired is always a better quality and lithium ion batteries are a pain in the ass when it comes to long term durability.


If you can provide a little bit of a review and rating of your headphones/headset I would insanely appreciate it.

Astro A40 TRs, it's perfect because I can use it for my PC and Xbox.
I can have Xbox and PC sounds at the same time while talking on Xbox or have both sounds and talk on PC, it's pretty useful. I'd recommend them.

Astros are worth the money, people who post bad reviews about them are the people who cannot afford them. They're the best.

Astros are probably the best quality headsets I ever used.
My TRs are still working great after 5-7 months of heavy everyday usage.

I have a Corsair Void. It's pretty good, nice sound and it's very comfortable
The only thing is, the mic is kind of quiet and my friends normally tell me that my voice is too quiet with this, so I have a separate mic

Motto: PM me for any help or assistance.
turtle beaches are quite nice, used them for many years & didn't give me much of a hassle. pretty cheap too in my opinion. the sound & the mic work great. never tried astros before but quite a lot of people like those too. not sure how those are, but the first headset you are looking at looks good too. its all up to you pal.
