Hey guys,
I'm looking for a good headset for under £100. I'd like it to be good for listening to music, but for it also to be great when playing video games. It must also have a built-in microphone.
I've heard the SteelSeries Siberia V2 is a great headset in this price-range, but I've also heard that it's not the best headset for music-listening and that it's not that comfy.
My question is this, is there any better multi-purpose headsets, that're comfier and good for music listening than the SteelSeries Siberia V2?

My music of choice is generally hard-rock/heavy metal so perhaps the good bass of the Siberia V2 will be good for this music, but I'm unsure.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated, thanks!

siberia v2 review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vT_n07FD7J8

this is what people on amazon have to say http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Technology-Headset-KHX-H3CL-WR/dp/B00JJNQG98 for the hyperX (the second review compares the siberia v2 and the hyperx btw)
and for the siberia http://www.amazon.com/SteelSeries-Siberia-Full-Size-Gaming-Headset/product-reviews/B002Q8IHDQ/ref=cm_cr_dp_qt_hist_four?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addFourStar&showViewpoints=0

so all in all, i would personally go for the HyperX because of its massive 53mm drivers plus its newer, otherwise i dont think you would notice much of a difference between them unless you're using some really high end DAC or something

EDIT: this video comments on the music quality as well btw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8qk0VEt2r8

The HyperX Cloud and the Siberia V2 are both in the same price-bracket, the Vengence 2000 are £30 more expensive, so I think i'll pass on them.

What would you say is the better between the Cloud and the V2?

Alright, I believe I'm going to go for the HyperX Cloud. The general aesthetics and the quality seems just that bit better than the V2s and as a bonus it's a little bit cheaper.

Thanks for your help!
