This being the 3rd headset over $150 I have bought, I was hoping it'd be the last.
How wrong I was...
If it's not one thing, it's the other. By now, I've learned that the more features something has the more delicate it is. Although I treat such expensive equipment with great care, something always breaks. This time, whenever I listen to anything, I get a strange, metallic echo that completely ruins anything I am listening to. Sounds horrible. Considering I spent $189 on this headset, I would expect it to not malfunction so soon, seeing as I have had it for little over a month now. With all that said, I always buy a warranty for each headset. Each time one breaks I use the warranty gift card to buy another, to try again. I take good care of them, they still randomly malfunction. And last time, it took the company 3months to send me a fucking gift card.
If anyone has had good experiences with a good headset with high-quality sound and a high-quality microphone, please speak up. I'm open for anything now, since my choices, all too often, turn out to be shit. I'm not interested in separate microphones and headsets, I want in all in one. No wireless either, wireless is too often complete shit, have to worry about batteries and connecting it to the computer.
tl;dr: Headset broke. Recommendations for wired headset with good microphone/sound quality?
If it doesn't have a microphone, doesn't that just make it headphones? lol but be careful with your sound level settings is what it sounds like you need to do. I would just try buying a cheaper set and see how they work out and then upgrade. I wish I had that kind of money for headsets
Try a logitech headset, they seem to work fine with
I had a Logitech G35, was lovely, but whilst adjusting the ear parts, I was being gentle, and the right ear portion broke off rendering it useless. Loved it though, probably going to get it again. I am currently using a Logitech G9x laser for a mouse, very reliable products from that company.
To the person who said watching audio levels: I never turn the volume up very high at all, nowhere near that, do not care for loud noises. But thank you for your thoughts.
I'll dismiss this all as shear bad luck I suppose, am going to trying again with Logitech.
