Just picked up a pair of Logitech Pro headsets to replace my aging razer electras that ive had for 5 ish years. Extremely disappointed with the sound quality and comfortability. The “intense explosions and gunfire” sound like its coming through a tunnel with and without dolby atmos.

Please recommend your headsets! My laptop only has one headphone/mic plug in so headsets with usb support are better but not necessary

I personally really like the Razer Kraken V2 Pro, and I'm currently also using it. Though I don't know how well the microphone works as I'm using an external microphone :)

Depending on your price point, could vary in headset quality.

I use the Razer Carcharias for about the last 8 years, not impressed with mic boom but I like the comfort and sound quality.

Im lookinn for something that will be a headset that has nice quality sound and a mic thats good enough so that people wont get headaches listening to me, i eventually will be getting an external mic so jts not a huge problem.

Im shooting for the $150-180ish range? Im not really sure what i want is available at that range

I use razer kraken pro v2's and they serve me quite well, been using them for a while now. Comfortable as hell, (compared to the logitech g430 that I had) Sound quality is great, and it's even better if you can get your hands on razer surround. I recommend them if you're looking for a decent headset.

I know alot of people are using Astro Gaming headsets. I personally use a Turtle Beach x12. I know, hate on me later. They provide good enough sound quality for me to sound whore across maps most times.

I have tried using Razer Krakens but I find them uncomfortable and the sound is not that good. That is when I got a pair of HyperX Cloud headsets, one of the first models and they are insanely comfortable, have very good sound, come in a nice package and are cheap for the quality that they offer.

Were you using the originals or the V2's? Because there's a pretty big difference comfort wise there if you ask me, The only way these get uncomfortable is if I try to sleep with them on.

i had to reinstall my realtek sound drivers then made sure it was using that driver instead of the "generic sound driver" and then the mic and headset started to work fine, still not the quality i was hoping for though

Might be a little late to this party but I use HyperCloud 2 Head set, and I have 0 complaints about them,  durable too because I typically break the razer krakens after 9 months of using them but thats more of a big head problem. I have heard that using blue yeti's are good too even though it is not a headset
