I'm looking for a comfortable gaming headset. I have previous used a Logitech G35 and Siberia V2 and actually found both of them to be quite uncomfortable. They're a little bit too big for my head and the cups hurt my ear and head after wearing them for a while. Is there any gaming headset that's really comfortable for less than $80?
I second the Sennheiser HD518/558 + mod mic. Most of the brands offering "Gaming Headsets" don't have over 50 years of experience in the audio industry unlike Sennheiser, Audiotechnica, AKG, Beyerdynamic.
the HD500 series are an open back headphone with superior clarity, directionality and spaciousness (they put most of the sounds you will hear around you instead of in your head).
These advantages come with a penalty of being unsuitable for use in noisy environments as their open back design does not block outside sound from reaching your ears.
