There is absolute nothing wrong using a gaming headset.
Impressionable pseudoaudiophile faggots trying to be their favourite youtuber/streamer will post their garbage in threads about how their setup is "better".
By "better", they mean own mid-range headphones plugged directly into the motherboard that are designed for music with way too much bass that completely muddies all the detail in audio in games.
Not only that, but you're fucking gimping yourself by not having mic connected to your headset. I've literally seen these shitters suggest using a modmic or clipping some shit to your clothes and having two cables get into a big mess.
Then they're telling you to get a desk mic. Oh fuck are these people retarded. Unless you're doing some professional work, you do not need a fucking desk mic and you're introducing problems for no reason
>Mic needs to be positioned correctly
>In some cases in front of your face
>Moving your head fucks with volume
>Typing or hitting the desk in any way (Moving mouse / putting cup down) causes thudding
>Unless you invest in extra anti-vibration equipment
Even after all this trash, you're only going to be talking on teamspeak / in-game, which have shitty codecs anyway. Even CS/DotA codecs are garbage considering the investment.
Honestly, if you have a desk mic / pseudoaudiophile headphones, drink everything under the sink.
Is there really some sort of elitism for headsets? I find that'd hard to believe man. $15.99 pair here, spending extra money just because something's 'designed for gaming' is fucking lunacy
>since they sacrifice sound quality to introduce a cheap microphone in there.
This is what these faggots actually believe. Like the sound quality is affected by a mic.
Holy shit there's no way this isn't a troll.
Yeah, audiophiles are idiots a lot of the time. A decent gaming headset is all you need for vidya. They can wank off about their $300 Sennheisers. They'll die in multiplayer games just the same, super duper pro audio quality or not.
He means they put cheaper parts in because they have to slap a microphone on it in addition to speakers.

you must be homeless, you fat piece of shit; i atleast have a decent home while you revel in a library
>makes a point
>some faggot goes "nuh uh, that don't work"
some delusional faggot you are
>There is absolute nothing wrong using a gaming headset.
outside of how shitty they tend to be built. have never had a gaming headset last me more than year, whereas i've had a pair of sennheisers for ~half a decade and they're still going strong
>still thinks its bait
ok, we both know that's bullshit
>using 5 dollar el-cheapo headsets
>complains that they broke
i bet you like having your ears fucked
>ok, we both know that's bullshit
...NO ONES TALKING ABOUT SPEEDRUNNING
>posts le facebook trash image
>having using earbuds for porn
>porn so loud your ears don't work no more
hard to believe without any factual proof
>hard to believe that mainstream "gamer" brands like razer (especially razer) sacrifice quality for money when it comes to production
You're delusional if you honestly think gaming headsets aren't some of the most shoddily put together pieces of plastic out there.
I just use this shit. For around 30 bucks it's pretty good.
Not the Snorlax you're replying to, but it's really a bit of a shame that they are. I had one and it was shoddy as fuck too.
I'm guessing pic related would be fine, but that mic attachment is expensive as fuck.
>tfw you play video games on the most accurate in-production headphones
Anybody have a Sennheiser Game One? I tried headphone and mic combo but it was becoming too much once I found out I would need a seperate microphone stand, pop filter, shock mount and all that.
Have to keep sending shit headsets back because of defects, will dumping $150 on the game one be worth it?
