Gaming Headsets, PS3/XBOX/PC

Here, you give out advice on which headset to buy, hot deals on headsets, or ask any questions about gaming headsets.

MINE:

Tritton's ax 180s.
I love them! Had them for around a year and still love the sound the produce. They are cheap ($70) compared to Tritton's better models (720s and 720 pros). They can be used on all systems (PS3,PC,XBOX) and they are very easy to set up.
I strongly recommend them if you don't have enough dough for Tritton's 720 models.

Tried those and didn't like them at all, they flopped around a lot. The Bose ones fit really snug.
I'll have to run to best buy and check them out then. How is the bass?

Astro A40's and Tritton AX Pro's aren't wireless and they both are compatible with the PS3, XBOX, and PC.


I have Astro A40's and I ****ing love them. Have had them for three years and have had zero problems with them. They are comfortable as hell and they work extremely well for pinpointing enemies in any game.

They aren't "true" surround sound though because they only have two speakers, they are awesome for pinpointing enemies in front, behind, and to the left and right of you, but they can't tell you if they are above or below you (you can still hear when people are above you, but you don't know instantly that they are above you because the headset can only tell you front, back, left, and right)

The Tritton AX Pro's actually have "true" surround sound because they have 8 speakers but I have heard the mic breaks easily, they feel pretty heavy on your head, and aren't very comfortable. They are $100 cheaper than the A40's though.

The bass is ****ing amazing.

I hate to sound like a Bose salesman (I actually think most of their stuff is gimmicky and overpriced), but I spent years searching for the perfect workout earbuds and these are them.

My only complaint is that the cord is a couple inches longer than I would like, and sometimes it can get tangled up in free weights if you don't pay attention.

I bought the AX Pro's back in November.....way too many wires....and maybe I'm getting old....but the bass was overkill!

The midrange and highs were sub-par to say the least.

Took them back and bought the new Sony PS3 wireless. Have to say...for 90 bucks, I'm extremely happy with them (and love the wireless floor between my couch and tv). Very nice combo of lows and highs. The mic sounds good too.

I will say - I tried the Turtle beach ones that were being demo'd at best buy.....and they were pretty damn good (but I cant justify 250 bucks on a headset).

Try them now and thank me later.

Yep, you were right. Best earbuds I have tried yet and by far the most comfortable.

I ended up going with an Astro Mixamp and a set of Sennheiser PC360s. Very happy with the setup.

Thinking about picking up the Turtle Beach PX5s....it works for both systems. Anyone have a better option that works for both the 360 and PS3?

Cant speak for the TB brand but I have found my most comfortable pair ever. Corsair Vengence 1300s . They also make some higher sets in the line with more features if desired. They are insanely comfortable. I game for long sessions sometimes and I don't get headset fatigue one bit, and many hours of lifetime use haven't affected them. Not to mention incredible sound quality and superior dampening. I'm in love.

I saw those on Newegg a while ago but wasn't sure what to think about them. I don't know how a company that started with making RAM and storage moves on to making headsets. The price is freaking awesome, though, compared to the $300 the nice headsets cost.
