I'm currently using a Yeti Blue and a pair of Sennheiser HD598SRs. Planning on switching to a Modmic 5 in the future, for more easy plug-and-play with a straight headphone jack, rather than messing around with a USB mic that I have to unplug to switch my audio back to speakers.

u/The_Dirty_Carl · 3 pointsr/Games

Hell naw. "Gaming" peripherals are notorious for being worse at their pricepoint. If you need a mic, get a modmic or a zm-mic. I have the latter and it works great.

If you're looking for new headphones, head to /r/headphones and /r/HeadphoneAdvice. If you're not a self-identified audiophile, stick to their low-end suggestions. I.E. if you're like me and can't hear the difference between a .mp3 and a lossless format, you don't need to shell out hundreds for a set.

u/GamingApokolips · 3 pointsr/NewTubers


"gaming headset"

Yeah, those words don't belong together...do yourself a favor, buy a real set of headphones, and a real mic. The sound will be far superior, your ears will thank you, and whoever you end up playing with will also thank you.

Go to Massdrop, buy a set of the Sennheiser 58x Jubilees ($160, free shipping in US), then buy a ModMic 5 from AntLion ($70 via Amazon). It's versatile, it'll sound really damn good without requiring preamps or DACs, and you can probably knock it out with a single paycheck.

u/shadyinternets · 3 pointsr/headphones

whats the budget?

and any pair of headphones can be a headset. there are microphones that are specifically made for this, so you can just stick them on any headphones you like. then the mic is easily removable so you can take it off if you dont need it, then pop it back on when you do.


or this one, which needs headphones that have removable cords.


i use philips fidelio x2 with the antlion modmic and it works great. theyre open back so they have a great soundstage. they do a great for positional audio.

I wish there were other options than the Antlion though. Mine failed after a year, altgough i did drop it a few times. This is still the best option though i think.

u/llamacek · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Just remember that that the whole surround thing is kinda bullshit, basically just advertising. All you really need is just a good pair of headphones like he said the ATH M50x or my own reccomendation, the Sennheiser HD 598s.

Just think of it like this, if you have a headset advertising multiple drivers per ear for "realistic surround sound" you're just getting 7 earbud-sized drivers with worse sound quality compared to one larger driver per ear.

Along with that, even if it's emulated surround sound with "Dolby 7.1" or anything along those lines it's just converting a stereo signal to sound with delays to trick your ears and even then postional sound is mostly programmed into the software/game itself making surround sound headphones mostly useless compared to dual driver headphones.

To answer your question though, you could just get a good pair of headphones than attach something like this (There are cheaper alternatives) to the side as a microphone.

u/bradclarkston · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Sorry can't help you the words "Quality" & "Gamming Headset" does not go together.

Do your self a favor and look into the ModMic. Add that to a good pair of cans and be done with it. I've been rocking a pair of Sennheiser + modmic for awhile and wouldn't go back.

u/JGango · 3 pointsr/joinsquad

The AKG 7xx's are good. The only thing is that you have to buy a standalone mic.

u/PostalFury · 3 pointsr/buildapc

> u/AlphaFemaleNerd: Good headphones.

1000000x yes. And not a gaming headset. Proper audiophile headphones like the DT 990 Pros, Sennheiser 598s, or the less-expensive 558s. Pair those with a modmic and you're good to go.


HWMonitor/CPU-Z: HWMonitor for quick access to temperatures (usually over/under by a couple degrees), and CPU-Z for frequencies and such.

Surge protector: Useful when you need it, ease of mind when you don't. Covers $300k worth of equipment in case anything is damaged, as well. Gotta love Belkin.

Mechanical keyboard: Much longer lifespan than some typical office keyboard, pretty lights, clickity-clacks, etc.

Good mouse: Same case as the keyboard: Much better than an office mouse, better tracking, button customization, etc.

Your hardware's respective software: Whether it's Ryzen Master, your SSD's storage manager, blah blah blah, it's useful.

UserBenchmark: See how your build stacks up to others, and/or if it's performing as it should be. Fun little thing.

Some greenery: Adds color to your battlestation. Nice little accent piece. Not necessary, but I like it.

u/Hammershaw · 3 pointsr/DIY

Looks pretty clean, have you checked out ModMics though?

u/HappyHonu · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Might try one of these. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01MCYRKY3/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1493266640&sr=8-1-spons&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=antlion+modmic+5&psc=1

Place pillow onto of keyboard while gaming.


O-rings make a world of difference depending on most switches if you bottom out.

u/gbux · 2 pointsr/buildapc

i go with https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MCYRKY3/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

  • the HD598
  • creative soundblaster ZxR (theres a cheaper version without the daughter card i believe)

    and I have a logitech z906 that will be getting upgraded at some point

    gods cds and FLACs are heaven, and it is amazing how fantastic games sound. I love hearing people sneaking up on me in CSGO and then nope them

As far as I know there’s only one version this model, but this is the one I purchased back in feb: Antlion Audio ModMic 5 - Modular Attachable Boom Microphone Cardioid Noise Cancelling and Omni-Directional Audio for Gaming, Casting, Streaming, Recor https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MCYRKY3/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apip_ON4zis5BSS4Hk

u/SilverSix311 · 2 pointsr/pcgamingtechsupport

I recommend getting some Studio Over Ear Headphones, and getting a Mod Mic or Desk Mic to go along with it. I bought an Antlion ModMic for the wife, and it works great. Sounds great as well compared to all the shitty gaming headset mics. My setup is a Razer Seiren Pro that I got on a banging deal almost $100 cheaper than typical pricing :). I have a mic stand that sits right above my monitors. It does pick up echoes if I have my speakers turned up too loud, but it's not too bad. I use voice meeter banana to route all my audio to 2 separate audio devices so I can just mute my speakers and put headphones on.


Desk Mic: Blue Yeti - ~$120, Blue Snowball ~$50
Mod Mic: Antlion ModMic ~$60, V Moda BoomPro ~$30 (V Moda Mic wont work on all headphones)
Headphones: r/Headphones | Read about headphones.


They come down to preference for the user typically. I have M-Audio Q40's with Beyerdynamic's EDT 770 V Replacement Pads. You probably won't be able to find any Q40's online, but I bought mine back in 2010 and I still use them today. I've replaced the audio cable probably 10+ times now. They are built to endure, and they are not that comfortable with the stock pads. Put the EDT 770 V pads on and feels like a cloud. I personally also have a desk headphone amp to get clearer/crisper sound.
As I said, this all comes down to preference. You need to research specific items you are interested in. Try to find reviews on reddit or forums. I wouldn't follow "reviews" that are articles on web pages. Half of those are BS and are generally favored towards the provider of the equipment unfortunately.
Typical google searches would be:
M-Audio Q40 headfi
Blue Yeti Pro reddit
Blue Yeti Pro Issues reddit
mod mic reddit


Good luck on your ventures! Let me know if you have any other questions.

PS - If you have a mechanical keyboard, invest in o-rings/pads to help with the clickiness, or if you don't have a mechanical keyboard and you are looking for one, get silent keys. I forget the actual switch types names.

u/TacticalPopsicle · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

Modmic. This brand is probably the most popular, although I use this and it works just fine. The only down side is that there is no mute option so you have to use discord's (or whatever you use) mute function

u/tryhardsuperhero · 2 pointsr/headphones

Have you thought about getting something like this if it's for gaming?

Modmic 5

u/3247 · 2 pointsr/headphones

I recommend ModMic. Quality is not the best bang for the buck but it was created for this very use case. $69, there is a cheaper, older version for $49

u/MJC136 · 2 pointsr/HeadphoneAdvice

sorry, I just thought it was funny. Asking for noise cancelling open backs is like saying you want hot ice, or like saying the ocean is dry.

its physically and conseptually impossible. mabye in the next 100 years but even that is being hopeful

I suggest the HD599 with a mod mic: https://www.amazon.com/Antlion-Audio-Modular-Attachable-Microphone/dp/B01MCYRKY3/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_267_bs_t_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=2B2W3BRA74TKXAA9F2H5

u/avboden · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Best option: Buy separate headphones and an attachable mic That will by far give you the best audio.

If you insist on a headset with a built in mic, I HIGHLY suggest the Sennhauser PC360 at just $118. Sound really damn good (same drivers as the Sennhauser HD595 headphones) and the mic is pretty damn good. Old gen and that's why they are so cheap now but still very very good. I've been using a set for a year now and love them. Unbeatable for the price. Sound can be beat with buying even better headphones and the modmic listed above though but will cost you a lot more.

RAM: Same specs, but $15 cheaper. And they'll still look great with the rest of the build.

SSD: It won't do a whole lot for everyday applications, but it's an nVME and actually slightly faster than the MX500, at a lower price. Also it's an M.2 drive, and in my opinion it's just nice having to run two less cables in your case.

Graphics card: Very much a sidegrade here, but I personally really like the great big hulking cooler on the Duke, and I prefer MSi's quality control over Gigabyte who's been more miss than hit lately. Especially on the midrange models. If you feel like trying something else, you can get the best Vega 64, the Sapphire Nitro+ for just $400 right now, and it's a a fantastic card. It's really close to the 2070 in performance, and while it does use more power, it's very easy to undervolt which will have it running cooler and more often than not faster than stock. For $50 less, this is the better deal in my opinion and what I would personally do.

Case: I chose to spend a bit more here, but for $20 more, you can get a really nice case, with great airflow and a nice tempered glass side. This is actually the MX330-G (at least if you buy it on Amazon), which is glass instead of acryllic.

PSU: The G3 is not a bad PSU at all, but it's smaller than the G1 and G2 and have had issues with fan noise and coil whine compared to the older models. A 550 W unit is easily enough for this build, but if you want a bit more oompf an EVGA G1+ 850W or a Cooler Master MWE Gold 750 W can be had for just $70 (if you go for the Vega 64, I'd recommend getting at least a 650 W PSU).

Case fan: The Arctic's aren't bad at all, but I'd recommend going for a PWM fan, to give you more control of fan curves and noise levels. The MasterFan Pro's are great, and you get a whole lot of fan for just $10.

Keyboard: Slightly more expensive, but true mechanical keys and plenty of RGB backlight. Redragon makes some amazing things for really cheap. If you prefer blue-style switches, the K551 is a nice option for around the same price.

Headset: The G230 aren't bad per se, but they are a budget gamer headset, and they sound like that as well. For around $15 more, you can get a great set of headphones and a clip on mic. I guarantee that the headphones will sound better and be more comfortable than the G230's and the mic is probably going to be just as good. The best part is that you can easily upgrade either down the road. Something like a Antlion ModMic will turn a good set of headphones into a great headset. If you want to stick with a more traditional headset, I'd recommend the Kingston HyperX Stinger for around $50.

In total this is ever so slightly cheaper, but with small upgrades to SSD, case, fans, keyboard and headphones. I hope this helps or at least serves as inspiration :)
u/codmanhowie · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

If you are looking for a headset type mic, the ModMic5 is a great option. You can cut a few bucks with the 4. As NekoLas90 said, Sennheiser is great also. Hope this helps! Good luck.

u/Silent331 · 2 pointsr/joinsquad

My current audio setup for gaming very similar to yours. I love this setup and have no interest in getting anything else and will be using this for years to come, or until something dies. The USB DAC separates it from the computer and there is zero feedback or noise and its bliss. I would definitely recommend an outside dac over onboard or in case sound card.

Sennheiser HD 598, open and closed back

Mod Mic 5


USB sound card to plug in the mic if needed

u/EricLowry · 2 pointsr/Stadia

Sony H.ear On 2 + ModMic 5 with a Sound Blaster E1 amp/DAC.

I just finished this really sweet setup a few weeks ago and the quality/modularity of it is amazing for the price! (<260€ with some good price hunting)

The DAC is there mostly for the mic volume/quality, and it is amazing how good it sounds. In a good environment, it is pretty close to a $200+ pro microphone and is useful is waaaaaay more situations.

u/Tunalic · 2 pointsr/FL_Studio

I would recommend you find something specifically for music production/recording and a separate mic. I have a been using Audio-Technica headphones for years and recently picked up an Antlion Modular mic for my gaming needs.

Now I'm a PC only gamer, so the setup works fine for me. You might want to make sure that mic will work with your X-Box before committing.

u/claymc19 · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

I use the Antlion modmic 4...works fine, its $50 on Amazon here. There's a v5 now that's modular here and a wireless one that I'm seriously considering, both quite a bit pricier

u/argus2968 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Speakers: Edifier R1280DB.

Go with 2.0 bookshelf speakers, not 2.1 computer speakers. These have Bluetooth, optical, and coax. Oh, and they sound amazing.

Headphones are tricker. Will you also be using them with a console or a phone at any point? Want to keep them on while running to get a cup of tea or take a leak? Do you play FPS's?

You have few different options:

Convenience be damned you want awesome audio quality above all else.

  • Get a DAC. Sennheiser GSX 1000. Modern, slick gaming features, solid DAC. Little Dot MKII. Because toooobs.

  • Open back headphones. There are a million suggestions at dozens of different price points. I recommend prioritizing comfort, spatial positioning, and a warm sound that won't cause listening fatigue.

  • Modular attachable boom mic. Antlion Audio ModMic 5 or Minimic. Don't underestimate these mics. They sound amazing, you have little-to-no background noise, don't need any additional acoustic treatment, and you don't have to worry about boom arms and the like.

  • Blue Yeti. You just couldn't imagine not having a huge mic like you see streamers using. It's the defacto go-to mic for a reason. Keep in mind everyone will hear your mouse and keyboard and that guy diving by and your dog sneezing and...

    Wireless PC and PS4.

  • SteelSeries Arctis 7. Wireless for PC and PS4, wired for Xbox (blame Microsoft).

    Gaming headphones.

  • Wired. HyperX Cloud Alpha or HyperX II

  • Wireless. Corsair Void
u/Deyoo · 1 pointr/Gaming_Headsets

So I was looking through options that you posted above, one being headphones + modmic + E10K and the other being Game One + E10K and the difference is around $100. My question is, is sound difference that big to be worth $100 or not? Option 1 being $316 and Option 2 $226. I keep reading that difference between 598s and GameOne is not that big, what's your opinion?

Option 1:

HD598 - $170


modmic 5.0 - $70


E10K - $76


Option 2:

Game One - $150


E10K - $76


u/transam617 · 1 pointr/CabaloftheBuildsmiths

Decided a pair of HIFIMAN HE400I's and a Modmic 5 should do the trick!

Thanks as always, dear leader.

u/r0ttennes · 1 pointr/BudgetAudiophile

I'm no expert at all but back when I was researching gaming headsets, I came across the ModMic. This seems like it might be an option for you if you are considering non-gaming headphones but still want a good mic. The reviews seem to be pretty good...

u/Archayor · 1 pointr/HeadphoneAdvice

Sennheiser HD 660 S

FiiO K5 Pro

And in case you need a mic as well; Antlion ModMic 5

Total cost: € 636 (€ 555 without the mic)

Aside from the K5 Pro, that's my current setup (that K5 will sound pretty much exactly the same as my more expensive DAC/Amp though), and I don't see myself upgrading anytime soon at all. Just a fantastic setup for just about every purpose.

u/ogunther · 1 pointr/audio

If you’re looking for really great wired headphones, don’t go with gaming headphones. They are overpriced for what you get. After being unsatisfied for years, trying some of the “best” gaming headphone, I finally ditched the whole lot of them and went the audiophile route:

Sennheiser HD 599 Open Back Headphone

and then added a microphone:

Antlion Audio ModMic 5 - Modular Attachable Boom Microphone with Noise Canceling and Omni-Directional Audio

It has blown everything else I’ve ever tried out of the water and is still substantial cheaper than top of the line gaming headsets. I also fancied mine up with custom tubing but that’s personal preference.

u/Brino21 · 1 pointr/gadgets

Modmics come highly recommended. You can also stick them to your headset, and plug them into your headset if it uses a 3.5mm in.

u/OverExclamated · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Open back:

Fidelio X2 (yes, order them from the UK)

Closed back:


I chose these two because you mentioned the desire for an attached microphone. Either of these will accept the VModa BoomPro which is an affordable, nice sounding mic that plugs right in and avoids having extra cable clutter.

Your other best options would be the AKG712pro or the DT880 paired with an Antlion Modmic at the expense of an additional cable.

Or a desktop mic.

The 'I've lost my mind, but found my wallet' options include the HD800 or Focal Elear.

In-depth reviews for everything mentioned available on youtube.

u/tusca99 · 1 pointr/headphones

a mod mic is a mic you attach on the side of any headphone, this means you have one more cable running than the headphone one.
But if you say so i recommend you buying a pair for gaming (in the 150-200$ range) like v moda headphones or beyerdynamic custom one pro, and save some money for an high end open back (if you want to have a better sound) as you already have the philips ones.
don't stick on buying the all purposes-one in the 300$ (because for that you have to spend more)

u/stonygman · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Good suggestion about the monitor. As a matter of fact, I was thinking about switching to a Ultra wide monitor. I'll keep that in mind for a future purchase. As for the mic, is getting replaced with https://www.amazon.com/Antlion-Audio-Modular-Attachable-Microphone/dp/B01MCYRKY3/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1502125231&sr=1-2&keywords=modmic.

As soon as the package arrives.

u/Koeru · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I doubt there's a definitive best setup for headphones, but I really really like my AudioTechnica ATH-M50x plus an Antlion Modmic 5. The headphones come with many cables of different lengths, so I never have any problems with it being wired.

u/Killjoy4eva · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Are we limited to just this site? Built in microphones aren't the best quality. Same goes for the actual quality of the headphones themselves.

If you already have a pair of headphones you like I always recommend Antlion Audio ModMic

edit: AREN'T not ARE

u/bentleyprior · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

It'll be hard to replace your 598s with a good built-in mic.

You could buy something like an external microphone attachment, and/or you could invest into some acoustic foam to dampen the reverb.

u/Breach111 · 1 pointr/audiophile


I have a 2017 macbook, that will be hooked up to a monitor with 3.5 mm minijack output (its a hub), i have a PS4 that just has USB, and i have a Windows computer.

I'd like all of these to be connected to 1 headphone,1 pair of speakers and 1 microphone

I know I need a mixer, but not much more then that.

What mixer do you recommend? and what cables would i need for this to work? my budget is very open. i guess something in the $100-200 range, But possible for more if thats to hard to work with

Had my eye on this mixer: https://www.alesis.com/products/view/multimix-4-usb-fx

Hyper x clouds are probably the best bang for buck when it comes to being able to use them on all systems.

Alternatively you could pick up something along the lines of the audiotechnica m50x with an Antlion Mod Mic this will give you top notch audio quality with superb recording for chat usage and you can use this setup with all three platforms as well.

The cloud is about $100

The m50x/modmic setup is about $200

u/kiwiandapple · 1 pointr/buildapcforme

ModMic solves that, of course.. not a cheap alternative.

You can get much cheaper options with some creative work that work just as well. Most microphones on headsets are pretty bad anyway.

The only 'decent' one I know of in the ~$100 range are on the Kingston HyperX Cloud.

u/SquirtleShells · 1 pointr/buildapc

I also need a new headset and I need advice on what to get. I would like the headset preferably around $150 with good audio and mic. I'm thinking about the ModMic 5 with headphones or the Logitech GPro. For the ModMic 5, I don't know what headphone to get so I would need somebody to recommend good headphones. The ModMic 5 with headphones will probably be more expensive, but I won't get a new headset for a while, so I would prefer something that is better, and possibly more expensive.

You're best bet is probably a ModMic. This ModMic 5 is detachable which is nice for when you just want to listen to music or watch video's.

so you already have a bunch of good headphones? then just buy a tabletop microphone to go with it or a detachable mic for the headphone, something like THIS

Just by the way, I wouldn't use the headset that comes with it. With all that money saved snag a sennheiser HD 598 - https://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD-598-Cs-Headphone/dp/B01JP436TS/ref=dp_ob_title_ce
and a modmic if you need a microphone - https://www.amazon.com/Antlion-Audio-Modular-Attachable-Microphone/dp/B01MCYRKY3/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1486872593&sr=8-1&keywords=modmic+5

For $150 this combination provides best sound/mic quality.

Anything can be a "Reasonable Price" A rich audiophile thinks the Sennheiser Orpheus is an reasonable price. However my suggestion is to not get a headset if you plan to enjoy your audio.

Grab a decent headphones a mic combo.

Sennheiser HD598 & Modmic Combo.

However only one headset I can recommend

Sennheiser Game One because It's the HD598 with a mic slap on it. It's the cheaper option as well but the HD598 sounds subjectively better imo.

If the M40x is like the M50x, it has a weird proprietary connection to the headphones, so I don't think the V-MODA BoomPro will work. You'll probably need the Antlion ModMic, which is very popular.

u/The_Roptor · 1 pointr/xboxone

If you have the Android version of the cable then it will work yes, but the mic quality may be lacking. If that is the case then you could get either the KetDirect Boom Mic (sometimes has longevity issues if you get a lemon). Alternatively, you get a Vmoda BoomPro Mic + 3.5 mm female to 2.5 mm male adapter, or a ModMic5.

The m50x are really good headphones, you can actually buy either a modmic or a VMODA boom mic they sound really good, you can find reviews on youtube, and use them with your m50x's.

What i did was, i bought the modmic and the ATH-AD500x, which are open back headphones, that gives me a really nice sound stage since there's air going in and out with the sound, the only problem is that they will leak a lot of sound, so if you share your gaming room with someone else they will probably hear everything.

Honestly, at 100-150€, you're best off not upgrading. The obvious upgrade path would be something like Antlion's Modmic and Sennheiser HD598. The Sennheiser Game One is also a good choice. Whether that's worth the upgrade, I can't say.

The wireless is your biggest bottle neck: Good wireless microphones just aren't a thing outside of pro gear. You could get a desk mic like an Audio Technica AT2020 or a Blue Snowball and a pair of wireless headphones, sure. But even there you're sacrificing audio quality for the wirelessness.

u/DiamondRyce · 1 pointr/NewTubers

So if you want to use your favorite pair of headphones that has a detachable mic.

You can buy something like this or this

Now if you dont have a nice pair of headphones.

I would suggest a set a headset of some kind. Not sure how the 3.5mm to rj9 converter works so I cant comment on that.

In terms of headsets something from the likes of HyperX or Logitech would be good options. I heard good things with HyperX cloud line up of headsets.

However my personal recommendation are headphones similar

Samson SR850 and Superlux HD668B with the detachable mics I listed before.

Choice is yours though.

Let me know if you have any questions

That’s what it’s called, a modmic


u/brogata · 1 pointr/buildapc

Fuck that noise (sorry) just get a pair of monoprice 8323's and a vmoda boompro, or if you want a more comfy experience monoprice 16150's and an antlion modmic.

u/articulo_mortis · 1 pointr/headphones

I'd go with the HD 598 + modmic. There's a closed and open version of them. I liked the open-back version more because of the wider sound stage. That puts you at $240. There's also a mic that plugs into the headphones if you only want to deal with 1 cable, if you're interested in that I could try to find the link to it.

Assuming you're in the US, I would recommend a Sony V6 or Sony MDR7506. They look dated but have amazing sound quality for the price (70-90 dollars on Amazon right now) and are very durable, with the exception of the ear pads. However, the ear pads can be easily replaced and replacements can be found for cheap.

For a microphone, I have heard great things about the Antlion ModMic. You can currently get one for about 70 dollars on Amazon.

I'm not the guy for a headphone recommendation - spent too many years with a pair of Sony MDR-7506 (which I think are great)

As for the mic and DAC/amp - like I said, you can't go wrong with a ModMic 5 and either a Schiit Fulla or a Micca Origain G2


The Schiit

Micca Origain g2

/ the above DAC/amps are good and function on USB power, so they're portable

I'm looking to get the Scorpion Exo 300 due to it's good looks, modularity, and reasonable price, does anyone here own this helmet? I'm looking to add some helmet speakers such as this: https://www.amazon.com/UCLEAR-Digital-Definition-Speakers-Compatible/dp/B00RW10WBC/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1509732579&sr=8-3&keywords=helmet+speakers and was wondering if the helmet would be roomy enough to accommodate them? Another thing I wanted to add for a experimental project was a Modmic 5: https://www.amazon.com/Antlion-Audio-Modular-Attachable-Microphone/dp/B01MCYRKY3/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1509732672&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=modmic+5&psc=1 which I'm not sure whether it would fit or not due to the helmets smaller size. Is the helmet comfortable to wear all day? Is it lighter than other helmets in its class?

u/thro_______away · 1 pointr/audiophile

Here are the list of things I am planning to buy. I want a setup is suitable for competitive gaming and a good mic for when I'm talking to my friends. Is there anything you would change in this list, or anything I should add or remove?

Sennheiser HD 598 - https://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD-598-Over-Ear-Headphones/dp/B0126HISOO?th=1

FiiO E10K USB DAC/Amp - https://www.amazon.com/FiiO-E10K-Headphone-Amplifier-Black/dp/B00LP3AMC2/ref=pd_sim_23_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=9G9KF45X497VVWTH1XMW

ModMic 5 - https://www.amazon.com/Antlion-Audio-Modular-Attachable-Microphone/dp/B01MCYRKY3/ref=pd_sim_23_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=9G9KF45X497VVWTH1XMW

I rocked a deathadder 2013 for a while and ran into a same issue with the doubleclciking. For something similar, I would consider going with Zowie, which is owned by BenQ, the monitor company that makes some of the best 144hz panels on the market. With Zowie mice, I use an EC-1A which has a nearly identical shape to that of the deathadder, if you want the transition to be smooth for your muscle memory.

For something less expensive, consult the wiki, or roll with a magicforce 108 (since it seems like you need a 10key at an affordable pricepoint) that just came out. They make great starter mechs and have a ton of entry level switch options. I've been rocking a Magicforce 68 key for the better part of the year and have had zero problems with it yet. (Still working on getting my first "real" mech board put together, heh.)

As for headphones, you'll always be better off rolling with a dedicated set of headphones and a separate mic attachment for the price. For a good use in FPS, I'd recommend the Audio Technica ATH-AD700X paired with an Antlion ModMic for a great entry level headset and mic that will give you better positional awareness because of the soundstage.
