so my Razer Kraken headset caught fire earlier tonight(rip :( ) and I'm looking for a replacement headset. I wanna hear some recommendations and why you like that set up! Also I have no idea what to tag this under D: (edited)

comfy and are pretty much a pair of M30X headphones with a mic on them. Can be detached if you just want to headphone.

heres a question: I have a little head. Will they slip off too easily? It's a problem I have with a lot of headsets, I usually have to wear a hat to make them fit
Small 8807ee669ae5541c36ff22c833472e99
hrmmm @Nelly_2202 is your head small? Maybe you can shed light on the way these fit?

i have used this headset for the last two and a half years and it has done me well. no mic other than the mic-in-the-cord for like a phone headset. amazing sound though

Logitech G430 has been my headset of choice for a while now.

Would also recommend the ATH-PG1s. Solid pair good quality mic too.

Yea the PG1, i'd recommend something like that for quality sound rather than "gaming" headsets.

Thank you for all the recommendations guys! During all this, I had a thought: I have pretty good sennheisers, but I'm not sure on how I feel about using a desk microphone with them. Is there any pros/cons to that combination over a headset? I feel like it's in best interest to explore both before committing :D (edited)

desktop mics can be great or sound like absolute shit, no in between. i've only just this year managed to get my mic sounding really good. if you want zesty audio then desktop, if you want the simple life, get a new headset haha

@mechanic that's actually really sound advice (hahaha, geddit?). I was gonna go to a few stores and see if they could let me have a play and see how the playback sounds, cause I do sometimes record my games for youtube to force myself to play them ;A;

No one wants to address the headset on fire thing? Ok, that's cool, I got myself a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-ADG1X Open Air "gaming" head phones and they're pretty sweet

@SamV522 it got run over about a year ago and my friend soldered on a new usb bit and little circuit board thing so it was usable, and it finally gave up. I'm not sure what happened; I'd used it half an hour earlier fine, put it down still plugged in, and yeahhhh :( God they look good but so pricey?? D:
Small 3d450f28ce360be18e73e30a2aac864b
...run over...? this is making less sense as you explain it, but also yeah, they're pricey, but if you have some disposable cash or poor budgeting they're pretty sweet

also I think I got them in a sale or w/e, cause I think I only paid around $200
Small 0b71ed9133601659dee833898879131d
@mechanic is pretty much spot on. But the desktop mic, when setup correctly, is far better quality.

I'm late to the conversation. But since my head size has being questioned, I would say my head is small. The ATH-PG1 do fit. Although the band thing almost is at its smallest it will go. But I agree I love the sound that these produce. And besides me being a quite talker I think the microphone works well. It's what I use for all the YouTube stuff I do.

@SamV522 lol @ "poor budgeting"
Small 8c379a240bbfc54b052a0e9fa7df6a32
How and wear was it that it caught on fire... like was it just smoking, or did it actually start burning (if the latter, I think you are pretty lucky your house didnt burn down - your desk obviously doesn't look like mine (covered in papers and things).
Small 8bb8cea05a6bd5a512663c93e83934dd
@FilthyAmatuer like starting to smoke and spark! I have a clean desk but my room mate had done some questionable soldering on the poor thing ;A;
