What headset would you reccommend at the same price or below? Is the Siberia v3 any better.

All in all, should I just complain, and get a brand new Cloud 2 or should I get my money back and buy another one?

By the way, my ears are quite large, so any suggestions should have quite big earcups, my ears are a tiny tiny bit too large for the Cloud 2, so nothing smaller than the Cloud 2 earcups.

1) Stop bumping your thread, it doesn't help anyone
2) Throw those out and get yourself proper headphones. For 50-$120, the Sennheiser HD528 and 558 are good, as as the Sony MDR-7506 and some people like the ATH-40X. All should be fine even for larger heads.

But I need a gaming headset, with a mic that is, I don't care way too much about the quality of the mic.

So should I then get a new pair of Cloud 2's or should I buy any other gaming headset?

Which is the best gaming headset below 120$?

Sennheiser HD 429s or better yet a HD 528/558 with a separate microphone. 558 is only $110, and plenty of cheap microphones under $10 (something like http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/830692-REG/Audio_Technica_ATR4650_ATR4650_Omnidirectional_Condenser_Computer.html, though if you spend ~25 you can get noise canceling)

Buy a hyperx cloud 1. Better than the two's, oh and i would suggest getting a decent sound card.
Hyperx cloud is a very solid headset. You underestimate them, I bet if u see how it's called "gaming headset" you throw it away, but this is the wrong approach. The hyperx cloud is based off the qpad qh-90. The qpad qh-90 is based off the Takstar pro 80 v2 which is an audiophile headphone.
