4 out of 5 eggs Must Buy Gaming Headset 05/21/2013

This review is from: Turtle Beach EarForce Z SEVEN PC Gaming Headset

Pros: I have the Sennheiser 360 and the Astro A40. I have another eight other headsets as well. This one has the best sound quality of all of them. For sound qaulity it's probably Z seven > Astro 40 > Sennheiser 360.

I had been listening to the 360 and A40 and this headset is CLEARLY better. The sound quality really blew me away.

I really don't like how the A40 looks to be honest and I had the top of the headset break apart. The little screws on the A40 aren't that sturdy. The 360 is pretty solid.
For durability it's probably 360 > z Seven > Astro

Cons: I've tried ten gaming headsets and this one is by far the tightest fitting headset of them all. It really hurts after a certain amount of time. I finally had to turn up the sound all the way and put the headsets on the table.

I have to knock off an egg for comfort. It's just bad. But, I had another headset with a similar problem. I got a bunch of books and just put the headset over them and over time it got stretched out. I think I can do the same thing for this headset.

The comfort of these really is potentially a game stopping issue for these headsets. They really can hurt quite a bit and I I'm not exaggerating. I"m just going to grab the books and stretch them out and over time they are going to be fine.

Other Thoughts: If I could only buy one gaming headset this would be the one. But, only if I can get this thing stretched out. Otherwise, I probably would go with the Sennheiser 360 just because I think it's the best when it comes to clearity of communications. But, the sound is pretty bland on that.

Creative Sound Blaster Zx 116dB PCIe Gaming Sound Card with 600 ohm Headphone Amp and Desktop Audio Control Module

Pros: 1) I always pay to have someone install my hardware. With this card, even I was able to install in about 10 minutes very easily.
2) the card makes a noticeable difference. This card clearly beats my Maximus v extreme motherboard sound.

3) the software is far easier to use than what comes with windows. It's just awesome to use.

4) the extra unit which comes with the card is awesome. I love extra little gadgets.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This card is pure win. I'm glad I didn't listen to those people who said only audiophiles would notice a difference between this card and on board sound. This is a must buy for all my computers now.

Razer Megalodon Gold-plated USB Connector Circumaural 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 1) 7.1 Sound. If you know how to turn it on this is great.
2) Great sounds. If you know how to instal a firmware update then it's great.
3) Great Fit and very comfortable.
4) Very nice mic. If the mic is too loud... turn it down.

Cons: No cons.

Other Thoughts: If you take some time to actually instal the firmware update and learn how to use the headphones, these headphones are worth the price. That's assuming you update the firmware and use 7.1 sound. If you just plug in the headphones and do nothing then these headphones aren't for you.
