    Headset?


    http://www.compusabusiness.com/shop/...ategory_id=661

    Out of all of these (or others not on this page) what headset should I get? I want it to use on FPS games, so the microphone and headphones should both be pretty high quality. Thanks.

    Goto Radioshack, I bought a headset with mic for like $30 about 5 years ago and still have it. It was made by Koss, just with the radioshack optimus brand for like 60% less than the Koss at other stores.

    Is it high quality? I'd rather spend more money and get something really good if it isn't. Thanks.

    as far as i can tell my optimus which is a koss also, is as good a quality as any i have tried, and like kfickert said it's alot less expensive to buy the radio shack optimus brand. i paid $10 dollars for mine, but it was a grand opening sale and they had alot of things really cheap. same set is $30 now.

    It doesn't have the noise cancelling and other modern stuff, but the fact its lasted for 5 years says a lot and its Koss with a different name. I don't know about today, but 5 years ago Koss was the brand all my audiophile friends were recommending.

    As far as quality, it does what I need it to do. Works fine when chating over teamspeak and rogerwilco.
    Why? Because Forms just look cooler in OS X...

    Dutch, it's like German...but not!
