Theshort and sweet of it is that I want to get a really good microphone. Something that will pick up my voice loud and clearly.
Using it for 2 things.
1) Internet phone conversations with friends. No long distance charges and easy to do, so win!
2) Is a bit obvious.. It's handy as heck for gaming.
And the more I thought about it, if I'm going to get one with a good mic, it may as well have some good sound as well. This is what i've been able to dig up so far:
NCIX.com - Buy Sennheiser PC161 Aka PC160 Gaming Stereo Headset 15-23000HZ 32OHMS 10FT BLK/SLVR Noise Cancel - 500926 In Canada.
I've owned a pair of sennheiser stereo headphones before and they rocked my socks for sound, so I'm leaning towards these as my number one choice. Also one day sale, 20$ off right now XD What do y'all think?
Reviews say they're more comfortable and a bit better sounding than the razer piranha's.
I was going to wait for the razer megalodon but it's taking too long.
My other option is a really good unidirectional desktop microphone. And I could grab some good headphones if the need arises. This would be ideal since headphones generally have better sound than a gaming headset, and a standalone mic is probably superior as well.
The problem with this, is I have no clue where to start looking for a really good mic.
As far as headphones go sennheiser seems to be a safe bet.
So... Opinions! please ^^. I'd love it if someone had some info on a really good standalone mic, aaaaand some rockin headphones (Surround capable would be favorable, really sets the mood for survival horror games, or even just fps in general).
