As of a couple of weeks ago an Onkyo 609 and Q Acoustics Cinema 2000. Sadly that's not cheap...
Yamaha Dsp a5 and 4x sony wall mounted 120w speakers, and a similar matching center one, acoustic solutions sub.
My Astro headset has a removable mic and can be used on either side. I think there are other out there that do that as well.
You can not play mutliplayer without a headset/mic. Otherwise you get a horrible feedback loop most the time, and then everyone hates you. Especially if you are blasting music on top of the game noise, on top of the feedback loop.
Multiplayer I use my headset, otherwise I run a 5.1 setup.
I use a desk mic, works fine with no feedback at all.
I beg to differ. I do it nightly. it's not often, if ever, anyone even hears my 4 kids yelling and screaming in the background(which they nearly always are, being kids and all.). It happens, but I don't get any issues other than by volume, and that volume is truly excessive. I sit here most often with the volume maxed on my PC and amp. I like to FEEL the explosions, and the footsteps.
You just need a decent mic and to adjust sensitivity settings. I don't even use push-to-talk.
Me neither i don't use push to talk and its fine, i use my onboards echo cancellation, it works fine.
Gotta go to work any hoo now, later guys
Feel free to beg. And....Go.
Denon D2000 Headphones with zalman clip on mic. and Dolby Headphone.
Dali Zensor 1 bookself speakers with Denon 991 receiver.
And thank you BumbleBee for talking me out of the Z-5500 a few months back
you should try this mic.
some audiophiles told me it's better than the Zalman.
I used to use a Logitech Precision Gaming Headset(Discontinued stock) a long while back but the audio cable to the headset broke somewhere inside one day when my mum walked in an accidently tripped on the long cable on the way out
Since that day she has been banned from entering my room and must knock/call or speak to me from outside.
Sure my room looks like its been hit by a nuke. but boys rooms are supposed to look like a shithole anyway
I loved that headset though. Not bought another one since and live out the rest of my days with a 2-3year old logitech Z5500 which is on the list to be replaced with a decent mid-range Onkyo speaker set when the money starts coming in.
I do have a really really cheapo logitech headset which came bundled as part of a webcam package but thats in the shed somewhere and I cant be arsed to look for it, because I love my surround sound for gaming.
I forgot to add that I do use a headset but only rigged for TS or ventrillo while the game audio still comes out of my speakers...
I use a Gioteck EX-01 bluetooth headset when playing BF3 as i turn my speakers up and the standard mic i use is shit so it picks up any sort of noise - Yes i know it was designed for the PS3!!! but i use it with my PC
It always amazes me how you can buy stuff like this shipped from China for $2.30
I only have headphones anyway.
Essence ST modded to
Audio Technica HA5000 + AD1000PRM
STAX SRM-300 modded + SR-404Sig modded to 404LE
I can say they both sound godly in game and out of games.
I currently use:
a Yamaha RX-V357 amp, with Yamaha YST Subwoofer
4x 100w Yamaha Satellite Speakers
1x 100w Yamaha Center Speaker (was a kit once)
2x 90w MBquart QL C104 Bookshelf Speakers
2x 100w Grundig Micro Receiver Speakers (leftovers)
all of that via the Optical Digital port, to the ALC892.
An amazing setup, with great clarity and juicyness,and far too much power for an ordinary room.... i could fill a concert hall with its sound!
When no1 is home i have my 5.1 system on but 9/10 i have my headset.
Depends if I'm gaming online or not. If I'm gaming online (and need to talk through TS) then I go headset+mic. If I'm using not TS then I'll give the Harman/Kardon setup a dust off and break out the Mission 730's
No option on the poll for me to choose seems all the latest polls are biased against me
Im actually considering getting myself a set of JBL Control 1's so i can use them just for music and movies and leave my Z5500's off unless i do any gaming.
I use a mic and speakers. Reason hmm don't like headphones even more so in summer when it's around 30c.
Being able to move around is nice too..
I use a Audio Technica ATR20 and a Surround sound system so again hell why would i use headphones.
I move around with my SRH 440s If I want to walk across my room and get something I don't bother taking my headphones off. In Winter and Fall they are nice to have too as they keep me warm. To avoid sweaty ears you can carefully choose your headphones or go with open cans, which let your ears breath much more.
I personally like headphones better for gaming, for music I like both speakers and headphones, it depends (but speakers are really nice when you have friends over), and for movies I have a slight preference to speakers if they are surround sound
Well if it makes you happy .. Personally i hate wires being attached to me and hate open headphones.
I don't know how to answer that poll. When gaming I use either my computer speakers (Klipsch ProMedia 2.1) or headphones (Sony MDR-V6). If there's ever a time when I need to talk in a game, the webcam picks up my voice.
Where is the option for floor standing reference speakers and a HK 7.1 surround receiver? Or my headphones if the wife and kids are in bed or don't want to be bothered.
I use a Yeti blue mic if I want in game chatter.
I have a Set of Logitech X230 and a Logitech Headset, I put the headset around my neck and hear the ingame sound thru the speakers and the voice com thru the headset. I dont wear headsets on my ears because they hurt my ears.
I use a full 7.1 setup with digi out into my H/K AVR347. Thats not an option on the poll though :/
Headphones and im waiting for the Razer Tiamat 7.1 to come out >_<
