Gaming headsets are overpriced and their sound quality is poor compared to Hi-Fi headsets. I like gaming but I also enjoy listening to music. Gaming headsets are not suited for that, they are often way too bassy.

For half the price of a high-end gaming headset you can get a Hi-Fi headset that'll suit all your gaming needs but will also allow you to enjoy music & movies in good conditions.

Imho, the best thing to do is to buy a good Hi-Fi headset and add a separate microphone.

If you need a mic only for chatting with your teamates on skype, a cheap lapel mic like the one below will be enough :

If you want to do podcasts, youtube vids, professional streaming. You should buy a better quality microphone like the one below  :

About the headsets, you didn't specify if you want a closed-backed or an open-backed one.

If you play in a noisy environment, you should go for a closed-backed headset. I recommend the DT770 pro. Basically speaking, it's a version of the critically acclaimed MMX 300 without the microphone :

If you play in a quiet environment you should go for an open-backed headset. Open-backed headsets are better than the closed-backed ones because their soundstage is wider, It's like listening to music in "open air". However with open headsets you are not isolated from the outside noises, this is why they require a quiet environment.

For example, below is my setup. I use an AKG k240 mkII Hi-Fi headset with a samson meteor microphone. This second hand stuff costed me less than 100€ on "leboncoin.fr" (the french "ebay" website) :

I also have a siberia v2 gaming headset but I don't use it anymore because of the poor sound/mic quality.

Hope this helps,

I'll buy the siberia one off you.

$20 bucks
