This review is from: Logitech G930 USB Connector Circumaural Wireless Gaming Headset
Pros: At first I thought the 7.1 audio wasn't good and even gave me inaccurate indications as to where my opponents were but after getting used to the headset prior to using a Razer Kraken with Surround I guess it just took some time for my brain to adjust. In terms of hardware the headset is nice. Comfortable, on a full charge lasts me more than enough, can go downstairs while listening to music or my friends and only go out of range in a few spots, and the mic is 'decent'. The mic isn't bad but this is a high quality headset after all. Using two of the buttons I can skip to the next song and pause instead of having to use my keyboard.
Cons: Logitech I'm so disappointed in your inability to read or address issues that seem to have been known for quite some time. As a newer customer of yours I was looking forward to putting this headset to the test but it just gave me so many issues. I almost immidiately trashed them due to the fact the sound would not stop switching back and forth between, what I'm assuming from the posts I read, 7.1 and mono. Any time someone spoke my music and ingame sound would lower or raise and everything would shift around and it was so frustrating, giving me a headache in no time at all. First search on google revealed a large amount of people complaining about this very thing. The only fix? An older driver. Yep, fixed the problem! But now with this old even worse godawful software I can no longer map buttons the way I could before. The dream of watching movies from my bed with friends and talking to them using push-to-talk on the headset is gone. The older software has an option for ventrilo but not mumble, probably because of how old it is.
The headset will randomly disconnect when I'm not even far away from it. It happens rarely but still an issue.
Other Thoughts: Don't get me wrong, the headset is amazing, but this blatant disregard for such a simple problem, one which many MANY people have complained about, is what makes me skeptical towards buying another Logitech product. The company itself may have some care for the customer but whoever is in charge of their drivers and software just needs to be fired immediately, especially since this is one of their newer products and you'd think the'd be keeping careful watch on how it does.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Razer Kraken 7.1 Surround Sound USB Over Ear Gaming Headset
Pros: I've owned these things for 2 years and they haven't crapped out yet. Listening to music is fine and I can decently hear where people are in game thanks to the help of Razer's 3D audio software.
Cons: I HAD to buy a separate $15 microphone for these because of the sound quality.
For the first year they were very uncomfortable (maybe they shaped my head).
After about 5 hours of use they start to hurt.
To be honest there are headsets with better sound quality and comfort out there for lower the price. I don't suggest.
Other Thoughts: A month back they started buzzing and I thought they were breaking but it turned out to be my motherboard's audio jacks.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Red Switches
Pros: I can't take anything away from this keyboard because the only reason I stopped using it was because of preference. It was durable and did everything it was supposed to. I'm just not an MXRed type of guy I suppose.
Cons: It got a little gross but then again so do my current keyboard and mouse that I constantly have to clean off. Maybe I have a skin condition.
Other Thoughts: Maybe I'll try a K70 with MXBluesREAD FULL REVIEW
