    Gaming Headsets?

    Anyone know any good gaming headsets? ex. Turtle Beaches
    I'm looking for something that'll give good sound, bass-boosted (love dat music shit), and a mic that's high quality for the PC.
    But I'm also looking for something that's around $50 max it's okay if it's a bit over that :P
    So far I'm looking at this: Turtle Beach, Inc. - Ear Force X12 Recertified
    Anyone try using this before? How good is it? Anyone have any other suggestions?

    Turtle Beaches are over rated. Look for some unknown brand. They offer similar quality for lower prices...

    Personally I use Astro A50

    the irony
    turtle beaches are really mediocre but fine for console if you're on a budget
    astro is like the dre beats of console headsets
    OP this really depends on what platform you're using them on

    Astro's are really expensive. Since I console game a lot I decided to put some money into good equipment. So far im loving them.

    Have you tried them? Are they as good as they're advertised as?

    I'm tell you man, the Siberia V2s are really awesome gaming headsets with nice music qualities too. $80 - $100 is not that bad for a gaming headset & since we're talking about the Siberia V2s, I would say its considered cheap.

    If you want, go spend like $200-$300 on the Astros.

    I have Turtle Beach Z6A 2013 - TopTenREVIEWS really fucking good headset

    Pros
    This PC gaming headset has eight speakers that are able to create true 5.1 surround sound.

    Cons
    Turtle Beach Ear Force Z6A uses 3.5 mm jacks but also requires a USB for power.

    The Verdict: 8.68/10This headset ranked well because of the general sound quality; it is the only one we reviewed that offers true surround sound.


    Fun as hell to sound whore in games really easy to tell if people are under, behind, and above you. Also the only headset I had that last over a year.

    'bass boosted' is something done with an equalizer and actually has nothing to do with the head phones, if you are looking for a headphone with a decent low end quality sound the price tends to be a bit higher

    No, earphones/headphones come with that feature and you can use an equalizer to strengthen it even more. Simply try using normal apple earphones and compare the bass to Beats earphones and you'll understand.
