Hi, I am looking to buy a new gaming headset and at the moment looking at the Kraken 7.1 Chroma. Are there any other recommendations along the same price range? I would prefer it if the microphone was retractable.
the hyperxcloud (original not II) gets good marks for quality on a budget though i do believe is stereo only unless you have onboard sound or a soundcard which supports virtual surround (or razers free software for that).
the original creative aurvana live! headphones also score well in the sound department for the money (you can use them with a clip on zalman mic if you wanted) though are also stereo and you'd need the above if you wanted virtual surround like the chroma.
