Took off today and D3 has just been down... :mad:

Since I got another hour + for server maintenance, I figured I would replace my crappy headset that hurts.
Looking for cabled/USB what do you guys recommend? Logitech G35 is enticing.

No one around here owns a headset. They are poor quality for the price, and the G35 is not worth the money.

Basically with a headset you are getting horrible audio quality and bad build quality as well, at the same time paying a premium price. Horrible deal.

For the same price you can get an amazing set of headphones that will last a long time and be worth your money, not to mention making your gaming experience better since you get much higher audio quality and better sound positioning.

Not to beat a dead horse here but the mics and internal wiring of headsets are crap too, causing bad voice quality and the constantly breaking.

Its honestly a joke.

Now, what is your budget and what kind of music do you listen to?

USB is generally a poor choice, degrades the audio quality and essentially forces you to use digital sound rather than through a DAC or MP3 player.

Hate to break it to you but that isn't exactly great either. They are good, but for the price you can get much higher quality elsewhere.

Grab a desktop mic and use the bose headphones, or get some new headphones that are more suited for gaming.

What kind of music do you listen to?

Classic rock I guess it's called now... some house, trance, pretty much anything to an extent.

i still laugh at this, yes a majority of them are but have you tried any new headsets out?

i will use my corsair hsa1's over my hd280 or 448's in games cuz they sound just fine even better positioning in games,

funny thing is I paid on 30 for them

might try the 700's next, trying to see if i can become not so tone deaf

The HD 280 and 448 Are closed back headphones. /facepalm

Try some
Sennheisers HD 555/558/595/598/600/650
or
Beyer Dynamics DT880/990
or
AudioTechnica ATH-AD700

Closed headphones aren't great for gaming because they don't have that wide sound stage or sound positioning like the open headphones.

All of those headphones you listed are closed back and are a reference sound design meaning they are for a wide range of music listening but probably not for gaming.
