I want a headset! Since I'm currently located in the U.S everything is a lot cheaper here, than at my home country. Therefore, I'm going to get something nice. I will primarily be using them to listen to music, as well as play some games. Mostly DotA-like games, and defenately nothing first-person-shooter.
Here's what I'm looking for:
I need them to be comfortable - I can sit by my computer many hours straight, and I have glasses. I don't want to hurt my ears.
Also, I want excellent sound; I'm in doubt wether I need 7.1 surround sound, or 5.1 will do the job for my needs? I also need a microphone that will actually leave out other sound than my voice (I hear that the Razer Magaloden fails to do this, despite high promises). I would very much like to be able to adjust the volume on the chord, as well as mute/unmute. The microphone should be able to be either flipped up, or turned off easily. I want to be able to talk to people passing by, or eating stuff. I like bass. I do not care too much if they have have a YSB-plug, or the jacksticks. I would prefer jacksticks though. I'm going mostly for my computer, and maybe my iPod. I feel like it would be overkill to bring a really nice headset in the bus for instance - it'll look ridiculous
Also, I've tried having big problems with adjusting headsets to my head. Those were really crappy though, but I don't want those kind of problems.
Lastly, if i'm going to throw a lot of money at them, I would like them to be built of a decent quality. I do hear that Razer Magaloden is not built well for it's price, which is a major turnoff. It should be able to withstand some use, without chord-breaks in the microphone or in the ear-cups.
How good of headsets can I get for $140, maybe a little more? What're you guys recommendations for what I'm going to use them for? I definitely do not want 7.1 surround if there is abselutely no need to.
