    Logitech G230 or G430?

    I'm thinking of getting a new gaming headset. My choices are between the Logitech G230 or the G430.

    Is there much point to getting a 7.1 "surround sound" headset given that its not true surround sound?

    No there isn't much point to getting 7.1 surround sound headsets or 5.1 for that matter. Stereo headsets work perfectly fine if the games you play have had there audio engineered properly. Also, what's your budget because I'm only ever going to recommend Audio-Technica ATH-AG1s from this day forth.

    I'd like to try keep it under $100. I'm also looking at the Steelseries Siberia V2's. Tried my friends headset and they're comfy af.
    Oh hai der.

    I actually have a g230 on my head atm. I strongly suggest the g430's, the mic on this is crap and sound isn't that loud.
