    Wireless Headsets

    So, my WIRED headset just broke and I think it's time I just go wireless. I can't stand the wires getting tangled together and slowly ripping off the wire protection coating on it.

    Looking for probably 70 dollars or less, but the max would be around $100. Can anyone link/tell me their wireless headset and how you would rate it? Rather get info off of what you guys have experienced then just wing it on a headset.



    (Good quality sound, i dont need the microphone)

    Should probably move this to tech talk and since I don't know much about wireless headsets, I can probably recommend watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RODsfFZIgE8 and seeing which one you like.

    I use these. They're really good if you're willing to pay the price. I haven't really utilized the microphone but from the testing I did with it, it wasn't too shabby.

    I would have to wait till black friday to buy something like these. I love amazing headsets, but until a sale goes on, it's not worth the money at the moment.

    You should probably get another wired headset due to them being cheaper for better sound quality and having no need for a battery. But if you really want a wireless headset, I'd recommend these https://amzn.to/36Lrgtw.

    The lowest I would go for a wireless headset would be $100

    As someone who has been using wireless headphones for over a year, they're dogshit. They're heavy, sound bad, and you'll forget to charge then and have to plug them in anyways. Dish out some cash for some Arctis Pros if you want a good wireless experience, or even get some wireless earbuds if you have a desk mic. Alternatively, try to go for some better cable management and you'll get much better sound out of wired headphones (with or without a DAC/AMP) for less.

    I've been using the Void Pro Wireless and I rate them 4/10, ordering some 599s and an AE-7 once I've saved up.

    You're definitively right on the cable management part. I'll do some research on how to do it properly. I think that's my issue. I just let the wire hang and do whatever it wants, but I need to find a way to keep it straight and not intertwining with itself.

    I've got the Steelseries Arctis 7 Wireless. They're pretty good.
    Might be a bit out of your price range but I don't think you will find anything satisfactory at a lower price point.

    EDIT: On a second note... They're not that far off of $100 right now depending on where you look. https://www.amazon.com/SteelSeries-L...3253752&sr=8-3

    I’ve used the Logitech G933 Headphones for 2 years now and had no problem with them at all so far. They are comfortable, audio sounds great and are adjustable, I 100% recommend these.

    I felt the same about getting tired of wired so I got the Logitech G933 Snow Edition 3 years ago. I like it for the surround sound and because I can hook it up to my android box to watch TV thanks to the USB dongle, but over time I got a bit annoyed with the fact that this headset is a bit heavier than I expected since the battery in the right ear adds weight. It's also caused me issues such as a firmware brick, which I was covered by warranty for a new replacement, and now I experienced a loose power switch which I fixed on my own because the warranty has long expired. As much as I've enjoyed having a wireless headset for the surround sound for listening music or watching movies, it's also had it's own flaws that caused me some grief.

    Pros:
    - Wireless
    - Surround Sound
    - Multiple platform devices supported

    Cons:
    - Heavy on the head due to weight
    - Faulty power switch
    - Sometimes annoying how often I have to charge it
    - Possible firmware brick if not updated in proper steps

    I'm not sure how the other Logitech wireless headsets are but I would say stray away from the G933 for the problems I've dealt with. The only other person I know that uses it is Malibu (he has the black one) but I dunno if he had issues. There is an updated version of G933, like G633 I believe, but again I'd recommend you do the research on that. As much as I like having wireless headsets for gaming, I'm definitely going back to wired after this one is officially no longer functional for me, and I think I'll end up with a Sennheiser G4ME ZERO as the next one.
