I own these AMA.

I bought these last time they went on sale for this price at Best Buy.
I love them, best headphones I've ever owned. I always had cheap pairs before these though.

A little album of pictures that might help someone make a decision about purchasing these. If you have any other questions or want a more specific picture of a certain part let me know. [ G430 ] ( )

Also for anyone concerned about the voice quality there is a firmware update to address the issue. [ Proof ] ( )
[ Update page ] ( )

They are also for sale at this price on Amazon. [ Amazon ] ( )

u/EnthusiastOfMemes · 7 pointsr/buildapc

Yeah, a budget gaming rig definitely doesn't need 16 GB of RAM. Also, OP is saying "Full rig" which I assume means with monitor and peripherals.

Mouse, Keyboard, Mousepad:



u/Anglory · 6 pointsr/buildapcsales

FYI to anyone Amazon seems to have these at the same price right now, with Prime.

u/Nikedawg · 4 pointsr/PS4

As someone with a massive head... yeah it happens. I'm always careful with my headsets but I used to go through one every year and a half or so just because my head is so damn big. I never tried the gold headset because I've heard of this happening so it would just be a waste of money for me. Hell in middle school when I played football for 1 year (hated it) they had to get a bigger helmet for me because none of the ones they had fit my big ass. I've always been a big dude though, 6"5' and broad (also fat atm :D).

After years of getting new turtlebeaches here and there and trying a couple other brands finally found this one that worked out great and its going on 2 years and so far so good!

u/--MAXIMUS-- · 4 pointsr/buildapc

[Keyboard] (

The keyboard is a bit loud, but I like it a lot. Plus, it's pretty cheap for a mechanical keyboard. especially if you go with just the blue backlight instead of RGB.


I have no issues with the mouse whatsoever. If you want more programmable buttons, you could always look at others. (I've always been a fan of Corsair mice, but Logitech has great mice as well.) You can program the color of the logo with Corsair's software to have a bunch of different effects, or stay blue since that's your theme.

Headset 1

This is the headset I've got and I absolutely love it. The sound quality is pretty good plus it's got a great mic compared to other headsets. I did link the refurbished one, though. I have a refurbished one and I've not had any problems. It isn't blue like you asked, but with everything else being blue I don't think it'll look bad since it's a neutral color scheme.

Heasdset 2

My friend has this headset and he thinks it's pretty good. I've never actually used it but he's happy. The mic quality is definitely a little worse and the blue cloth will eventually start to fray and rip. It is still a very popular and liked headset though.

Other people will probably have better suggestions for higher end gear, but if you buy all this you'll only be at around $160-$170, so you'll even have some money left over. Whatever you end up getting, I hope you like it!

u/jarredkh · 4 pointsr/ddo

I use G430

Had em for years pretty durable tried plenty of others and they all seemed to break pretty quick.

mic is great, and has surround sound too which is nice.

I have tried the wireless ones but I prefer the cloth ear pads vs the rubber.

u/AD2K14 · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

It's a dollar more than lowest price on Amazon


u/RingMaster23 · 3 pointsr/OutreachHPG

logitech G430, 7.1 surround sound sound, good mic quality, comfortable (over the ear means that it does not press your ear into your head, it is actually over the ear), wired with the wire quite long, but $58 on amazon right now so slightly over your budget.

u/mrronzy123 · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Will my non-K i5 bottleneck the GTX 1070?

Just making sure, but there aren't any major issues with my motherboard, correct?

Is my PSU enough for the rest of my hardware?
Yes. thats all you need.

Do you guys have any recommendations for decent, inexpensive peripherals (keyboard, mouse, and headset)? Would be greatly appreciated!

You have a solid rig right there my friend.

u/Fayko · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

How bout [these?] (

I have 2 pairs of this headset and enjoy it. Sound is good in games that support 7.1 and logitech support is the best imo.

u/LordSocky · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

The simulated surround sound completely warps the audio, I wouldn't recommend enabling it.

The included USB dongle can improve your sound quality significantly for both headphones and microphone if your motherboard has bad onboard sound, or your case's front panel audio connectors are of poor
quality (like mine!)

The microphone is really good, has built-in noise cancellation that filtered out the noise of my huge box fan a few feet away blowing directly on me, and my several case fans, without messing up my voice.

The padding is very comfortable, especially if you have a big head, and the earpieces can be rotated 90°, so you can quickly pull them down and they hang comfortably around your neck.

Sound quality isn't audiophile-level, but it's pretty decent, if a bit bassy, like almost all gaming headsets.

All in all, these headphones are excellent, ESPECIALLY for $40.

u/Rhyces · 3 pointsr/Rainbow6

Logitech g430.

Great headset with all your essentials; 7.1 digital dolby sourround sound, a decent mic, comfy removable ear cups if you sweat a lot and its lightweight so you wont get a strain on your head if you play for extended hours.

I've had these for 6 months no issues, would recommend.

u/NumbAh_Ace · 3 pointsr/nfl

Logitech G430 7.1 DTS Headphone: X and Dolby Surround Sound Gaming Headset for PC, Playstation 4 – On-Cable Controls – Sports-Performance Ear Pads – Rotating Ear Cups – Light Weight Design saw this yesterday

u/phyloh · 3 pointsr/gaming

You didn't indicate price, so I'll give you probably the best cheap option, which is the Logitech G430. I've had mine for awhile now and I find the sound quality to be good, the headset to be comfortable and it has been pretty rugged. My only real issue is that the cord is long as hell.

You can find it for cheaper than $39.99 on sale. It's well worth it for the price.

u/bottyliscious · 3 pointsr/PS4

I never liked the Sony official ones, the way they looked etc.

I have this by Logitech, wired but really good quality.

You do have to plug the USB into the console to use the mic, there's not a single plug for both mic and audio, its split out for PC use as well.

u/ultimus117 · 3 pointsr/DestinyTheGame

I bought these in January, fantastic and couldn't complain these are awesome. Can't beat the price for what you get. Unless you wanna add 150+ for packaging and wireless.

u/CareerRejection · 3 pointsr/buildapc

While I'm all for Logitech parts, the last decent headset I've purchased from that the didn't straight up die after 6-8 months later was this. I bought it for $35 at BestBuy about 6 years ago and it still friggen works. I had the G430, G35, and now an H2100 from corsair and they're all shit.

I cannot wait to process my RMA since switching to a Vmoda boom mic and Philips shp9500.

u/Condawg · 2 pointsr/PUBATTLEGROUNDS

I recently picked this headset up. Pretty solid.

u/BleedingPositivity · 2 pointsr/PUBATTLEGROUNDS

Try this headset. My fiancee and I both have one and it's pretty good for the price.

u/mcalvi52 · 2 pointsr/gaming

The logitech g340 is what I have. It's $40 on Amazon right now.

I love it. It has surround sound and sounds great when listening to music. The mic is pretty good quality as well.

u/Pyroraptor · 2 pointsr/letsplay

I have a few suggestions:

  • OBS Multiplatform. Works good for recording game play, is free, and allows for multiple audio streams. Can be used instead of Fraps or as a backup program.

  • Audacity: Free audio editing program that has lots of good features.

  • HitFilm 3 Express: Also a free video editing program. I would have a copy along with blender as a backup.

    For USB 3.0 External HDD i have heard good things about the WD Elements products. I had WD internal drives and have had no issues. I record 1080p 60fps. You'll have a little less speed with an external, so maybe do 1080p, 720p 60 fps, or 720p.

  • For a microphone I highly suggest getting a standalone mic and a headset instead of using the built in mic. You''ll get much, much better sound quality that way. Maybe a Blue Snowball, ATR-2100, ATR-2500, or Samson C01u.

  • For headsets, I suggest the Logitech G430, Steelseries Siberia V3, ATH-M30x, or a nice pair of Sennheisers.
u/noyster · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

For 10 extra dollars you can get Logitech G430s that are on sale with free shipping!

Edit: There are used ones like new for 49.95 on there as well
Edit: Price raised to $69.99 for the New, sorry.

u/Porso7 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Logitech G430's are awesome. They fit well and the build quality is great. If you use the included USB sound card, you can enable Dolby digital 7.1 surround sound in the Logitech gaming software.

u/Laskoh · 2 pointsr/hcfactions

I've purchased probably 6 or 7 different headsets and I recommend the ones I currently have. Logitech G430s are extremely comfortable and aren't too expensive.

Logitech G430

KingTop 3.5mm Adapter

Better headset than any Astro blah blah blah. These were designed for the PC Master race and transition well on Xbox. Thank me later 🤙🏼

Dont let the price fool you. These are a couple years old, but were a very expensive set of headphones when they were first released

u/cchu0188 · 2 pointsr/AlienwareAlpha

I use this a pair of Logitech G430s:

Comes with the adapter you're trying to buy, and you can plug in other headphones as well.
I also sometimes port the sound through my monitor's speakers.

u/Youknowyyyimhere · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

Amazon also has Logitech G430 Over-the-Ear Gaming Headset on sale for $34.99. Shipping is free. Note that it wont ship until June 21st

u/Reanimations · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I use the Logitech G430s. They're $40 on Amazon at the time this comment was typed. I've had them for the past few months and they're great.

The 7.1 surround sound is awesome, and there's a pretty nice amount of bass. The ear cups are removable and washable, and the headband has a sort of memory foam as cushion. They feel good to wear for long periods of time and they don't make me sweat at all. It also comes with an above average mic. I can recommend them in a heartbeat.

u/critical_g_spot · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Save an extra $20 and keep a lookout for kingston hyperx cloud 2.

But, heard passable remarks about these as well:

u/Knort27 · 2 pointsr/gaming

Well, some gaming headphones are 5.1 or 7.1, either emulated or hardware surround. I have been through a 7.1 with emulation (Logitech G35) and a hardware 5.1, which was some kind of Psyko headset or something. It might've been my soundcard but it made a big difference in being able to tell whether or not a sound was behind me. The only downside is they're more expensive. Logitech ones, check this

u/MoltenSlowa · 2 pointsr/Overwatch

I can only speak to what I've used, but I have the Logitech G430 headphones for my laptop and travel. They're very comfortable and lightweight, and have a very long cable. The Logitech G930s are the wireless version if you need that too. No complaints with them, but I do recommend using Overwatch's dolby atmos sound option instead of Logitech's 7.1 sound drivers.

I also use the AKG K240 headphones that are the lightest and most comfortable headphones I've ever worn. I sometimes forget that they're on sometimes! Great sound, but they are headphones only and you will need a separate microphone.

u/Rusty_Sporks · 2 pointsr/GlobalOffensive

I have a pair of Logitech G430s, working great for me so far, good sound and comfortable fit.

u/gtwillwin · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I got the Logitech g502 about a month ago and could not be happier with it. It has good mic and audio quality and is very comfortable. It's pretty reasonably priced and looks nice.

u/hamiltoncycles · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Same price as the Logitech g430s, which are #1 best sellers in headphones. Personally, I vouch for the Logitech's pad for use as everyday/gaming headphones, while leather pads are better for casual music player use where you won't sweat as much.

u/GottaBeFresj · 1 pointr/gamingpc

Thanks. I'm debating on buying those or a cheaper set the
Logitech G430.
not sure which ones to purchase, I'm not an expert

u/ItsArchieTime · 1 pointr/ElgatoGaming

These are the headphones:
I connect the audio jack to from the monitor to the hub that displays the headset icon. No sound.

That multi-audio option on the PS3 is only for chat, it does not output game audio.

u/superclay · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

May want to consider lowering price for g430. You can buy new for that price.

u/attababy · 1 pointr/buildapcforme

I recommend this headset, as it's cheap and extremely comfortable:

I bought mine almost a year ago and wear it around 10 hours a day most days, and it only hurts towards the end of long computer sessions. The flip side of it being cheap is that it didn't last - around the 9 month mark the sound balance started acting up, and I am going to replace them, but they are cheap enough that if you like them, and comfort is a top priority, they're good value and could be worth replacing.

u/UnwrittenElysian · 1 pointr/streamtown

Well if you are looking for a cheaper headset I use this

if you have a PS4 it works with it too

u/NinjaN-SWE · 1 pointr/GlobalOffensive

Nah, this is over a period of 5 years with the latest one breaking this year (and I told the guy to not buy SSv2 because of the bad quality...). They have issues, as for your theory on complaint vs. praise check out the amazon pages for the competition: <- no breaking complaint what so ever. <- About 5-10% complaints, substantially lower than SSv2 <- around 5% breaking, most of poor Reviews seems to be about it being ill-fitting and the mic taking up too much (which isn't caused by the mic being faulty).

I'd say that the SSv2 are a bit below average when it comes to durability.

u/tlh053 · 1 pointr/Twitch

I was really happy with the Logitech G430 when I started out.

Not the best quality, but for that price its fantastic.

Just make sure you actually download the proper software for it and update the firmware. Makes a substantial difference.

u/ninjabob64 · 1 pointr/CodAW

u/PhantomTF · 1 pointr/NoStupidQuestions

like this

I don't think there's any way to fix it by the mic itself, I might need some software that just raises my mic volume as a whole

u/ceelion · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

These are what I have for around $70 and I love them. Comfortable, good sound quality, decent mic, overall I give 'em a 4.5 / 5. Hope this helps :)

edit: missed a word

u/trustthespork · 1 pointr/buildapc

These are below your price point and very comfortable. All the League of Legend pros sponsored by Logitech wear them all day every day too. Logitech makes a pair that has faux leather type material that can get gross and sweaty but these have a softer cloth covering.

u/theograd · 1 pointr/headphones

Looking for a pair of headphones that either have in-line on-cable audio controls or on-ear audio controls.

Example of in-line audio controls:

Don't really want a headset mic, just want headphones. Budget $150. Don't like ear buds at all. The goal is to lower volume control for just myself, while my live stream's audio remains the same.

u/OsmannyM · 1 pointr/Rainbow6

Def check out the Logitech G430 Amazon BestBuy $40 right now on bestbuy.

I've had these for over 2 years and they are still the best. Pretty comfortable with glasses, not sure if you have but comfortable nonetheless. I can hear footsteps clearly on siege and even pubg.

Check out the reviews on the Amazon link.

u/WingZeroh · 1 pointr/PS4Deals

Decent deal.

To those looking for an alternative with close to equal performance, the Logitech G430 Surround Sound Gaming Headset with Dolby 7.1 Technology is a good alternative for $59.99.

u/TravelerCorp · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I use these.

They let my ears breathe and they don't get uncomfortable even after hours of wear.

u/colonostrich · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Logitech G930 Wireless with USB recharge (can run plugged in) for $99

Logitech G430 Wired, USB for $65

Both are 7.1 Surround, super comfortable, and the mic quality is spot on.

The Logitech Software suite is also very nice and easy to use.

The wireless range and quality on the G930 is top notch. I've been using mine for around 18 months. I recently replaced the ear pads for $8 and they're good as new. They also take a beating, built very sturdy.

u/lyyingcat · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Great, thanks. This is the headset I use:

WIll alcohol wipes be okay for the ear pads' material?

u/GrodyPie · 1 pointr/buildapc

Astro A10s are pretty good at only $50, and Logitech G430s are also good at only $40.



u/Wulf6489 · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

I can't say anything about those but the general rule of thumb is gaming headset < headphones + mic

To be honest, if you are on a budget and want to get a good headset then the Logitech g430 or the HyperX Clouds would work just fine.

u/cf18 · 1 pointr/buildapc

You can find better deals on some parts:

For standard 1080p 60hz monitor it's easy to find better deals, e.g.

G430 at near the same price:

The Logitech headsets are not bad and very comfortable over my big ears.

It's more of a taste thing but I think these cases looks better:,ZHmxFT,YhzZxr,vPp323/

u/FoxHoundUnit89 · 1 pointr/Rainbow6

In the past I've owned these:

All of which, if the game has good sound design, will basically allow me to see through walls. A lot of it does come down to the game you're playing, and of course setting the audio up properly so it doesn't have a bunch of bullshit echo and what-not.

u/Lift_For_Tomorrow · 1 pointr/PUBATTLEGROUNDS

Since the Corsair Void's are ~$59.99 I figured I would link the ones I use. I broke a set of Steelseries headphones (don't remember the model but they were $150 at the time) and on a whim went out to Walmart just to get some cheap headphones to replace them until my new ones came in. I bought the G420 Logitech Headphones for $49.99 (currently $39.99 on Amazon and no joke, I feel like they are far superior. I play Counter-Strike as well where sound cues are hands down the most valuable information you can have and I would definitely buy these again.

EDIT: I forgot to mention I returned the replacement set and continue to use these g430's

u/crew6dawg0 · 1 pointr/EscapefromTarkov

They have multiple programs out that you can use to communicate with your teammates until VOIP is included in the game.

The most popular one right now is Discord, I use it along with my buddies, it's a free program that runs quiet in the background. Here is a link:

Another good program to use is TeamSpeak3. I use it frequently, it's easy to setup and works well. Here is a link:

Once you have a program, you can buy a Gaming Headset at a local store like Bestbuy, I use a Logitech G430 headset that includes surround sound and a microphone for communication. Here is a link:

Once you have the communication program of your choice and a headset with a microphone, you can use your lips along with your tongue and vocal cords to communicate with one another to prevent future team killings.

u/SamTheHam_01 · 1 pointr/PS4
Is this the one you're talking about? It's $70-$80 Canadian so I assume you were saying $40 American in certain stores.

u/NEM3S1S · 1 pointr/BuildAPCSalesMeta

My fiance uses a Logitech G430, if you use the USB plug, it has some nice noise-cancelling software built-in. Sometimes a little too much, if you speak too softly it won't catch your voice that well. But it's a very nice and very comfortable headset. Unless you already have headphones you like, I'd recommend the Logitech G430.

If you just want a mic, your options are only limited by your budget. Go for something with gain control, that'll help you eliminate background noise. The Yeti by Blue is a very popular pick for simple ease of use. It's not the godsend people like to say, but it's only around $100 and still works great.

> headphones imo are basically mandatory at a high level of play because of this

And it can help you on all levels of play. especially if the headphones are 5.1/7.1. Hearing WHERE the sound is coming from and reacting to it will bring a lot of salt and hacking accusations (as you surely know). I can vouch for Logitech G430 as a decent 7.1 headset.

u/JaviJ01 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Sorry for the late response, but I appreciate all the help you've offered so far. If it's cool I still have some questions.

I currently have that Zalman mic you linked and getting the white noise with it. Do you think the onboard soundcard I have on my z97 board is the issue? (MSI SLI Krait z97 if it makes a difference)

Would getting a microphone with a little plastic buffer like this help the issue, or would spending the money on a cheap sound card be more beneficial?

I was also looking a condenser mic with stand or maybe a gaming headset like these G430s on sale.

Any and all help would be appreciated!

u/kaosctrl510 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

For less than $5 more, you can get the G430 on Amazon. It's a pretty good headset, in my opinion.

u/Zyad48 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I understand, I was just looking into other options since my last headset physically broke and decided that if I was going to grab a replacement, it might as well be a bit more of an upgrade.

I looked around and I'm curious, would these be snake oil by any chance?

For the record, I mention these specifically because I may have found a decent price for them.

u/ryios · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Did a little more research, at a price of $54.99 I think the Logitech G430 might be the best headset on the market at that price point and it's got 7.1 Virtual Surround.

u/lgoolsby · 1 pointr/Planetside

Logitech G430. Primarily a gaming headset, I originally got them because they connect over USB through a dongle. I don't have a sound card since my motherboard is micro ATX, my video card is a 2 slot card, and my PCI-E 1x slot is being used by a USB 3.0 header card so I can use my front panel USB because my motherboard didn't have a USB 3.0 header...My motherboard caused problems in the beginning.

I had to use the onboard audio, which was apparently badly grounded, because there was always feedback that buzzed when using just the 3.5mm jack. On the plus side, the headset has Dolby Pro Logic II, which outputs 7.1 surround, says Amazon. It also has decent music response for my favorite bands.

There isn't any buzzing anymore, which is good...since that is the entire reason I got them. Decent reviews, decent price.

u/slightlyStringent · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I've heard good things about both of those headsets. I've also had a good experience with the G430's

This is a headset my friend recommended to me. I haven't bought it yet, but it seems highly rated with many of the additions you specified. Again, uncertain about the product durability because I don't have it, but it's the one I would buy if I was looking to get one.

Budget - max 250€
Source - Android Smartphone, Computer
Requirements for Isolation - Not necessary, but would be good to have.
Will you be using these Headphones in Public? Yes
Preferred Type of Headphone - Over ear
Preferred tonal balance - Balanced with a good bass.
Past headphones - JVC HA-FX1X-E Xtreme Xplosives for Android, Logitech G430 for my Computer
Preferred Music - I listen to a lot of different things, this is my current playlist
What would you like to improve on from your set-up - Overall better sound quality.
Location: Germany

Would also be nice to be useable in the gym.

Other Information: I was in an electric store a few hours ago (german media markt) and I tryed a pair of headphones for a minute and had to go after that because my train was about to arrive. I had to pair them with my phone to test them and the linked device was the Bose AE2 SoundLink, they were really comfortable and sounded really nice to me. They were 329€ in the market tho and this is what I found on amazon, it doesnt say Ae2 tho, only around ear. I'm not sure if it is the one I tested. Maybe you guys know.
Something around the sound range of these would be very fitting for me.

u/cerialphreak · 1 pointr/headphones

Logitech makes a decent product if you want something ready to go out of the box. Your other option would be to check out the headphone recommendation guide in the sidebar, pick out a set of 60ish dollar cans and then get the zalman clip on mic.

u/_THAT_GUY__ · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

if you can go up to $60 this is the the best headset i have ever used for gaming. (with the exception of the more expensive version of it that sound the same, they just have more features).

If you can't then this is one of the higher rating budget headsets on amazon. But at that pricepoint I cannot promise anything

u/herogerik · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I'd highly recommend the Corsair Vengeance 1500, the HyperX Cloud, or the Logitech G430.

The Razer Kraken has a known history of not having all that great of audio quality and also has one of the worst built-in mics. I've tested all four of these headphones and the 3 I linked to are much better quality and cheaper!

u/Brisholine · 1 pointr/headphones

The G430s are the same as the G35s sound-wise and they work with the PC and PS4, not sure about other consoles. The G35s just have other unnecessary features like sound modulation, buttons on the headset, a light that shows your mic is muted, just pointless stuff to drive the price up. My only issue with the G430s is the mic connection seems to have some issues because you have to use an adapter for USB. You could probably buy a better adapter yourself I would think. Oh and make sure you use the Logitech gaming software because it improves sound quality by a lot.

u/xMico1236 · 1 pointr/buildapcforme

You can also get a Logitech G430, it's way better than the G230. Also only $6 more.

u/frozen_orangez · 1 pointr/deadbydaylight

This is the headset i use. The first one i had lasted me probably around 3-4 years and im still on my 2nd one now. Good headset thats lasted longer than others for me.

u/adjkabeef · 1 pointr/GlobalOffensive

You'd be better off purchasing a decent set of headphones but, your current headset is almost 3 years old, i would look at a new set, nothing made by Razer though, they are the alienware of Headsets and peripherals. By that i mean your paying for the brand name lol.

I'd personally just get something like [this] (

But thats just my opinion. :)

u/LuLSac · 1 pointr/buildapc

I just recently purchased the G430 due to the sale and it has definitely lived up to what I expected in terms of quality, comfort, and design. I would recommend this headset for people since its $50 right now.

u/VestedLoki8 · 1 pointr/headphones

I'm looking for a headset to play games with on my pc (as the previous ones broke). I'm looking at 3 headsets right now and want to know which ones I should get and why, compared to the others? The three choices are Logitech G430 the HyperX Cloud Stinger and the Corsair Gaming Void. Thanks

Pretty good headset imo, I use it with cs and pubg and have never had a complaint

Tried posting on PC master race but you guys have been much nicer to me here and they never seem to answer their daily's. Anyone have good recommendations for PC gaming headsets with a mic? The turtle beaches I had since 2009 seems to have the mic not working now but the sound is fine... The three below are the ones I'm deciding on, but if you have better suggestions let me know please. Budget is <70

u/COOLMOMSTERTRUCK · 1 pointr/GirlGamers

hey! I had the lower tier version of this headset for about two years and it served me fantastically (eventually broke in one ear but it was due to me being careless).

It's on sale for $30 right now but looks like it usually costs more! seems like a steal to me

u/EaterComputer · 1 pointr/teenagers

I own the Audiotechnica-M40x which sound great on primeday/Black Friday for under $100 and they are really great. The only problem is that they don't have a microphone. I have a seperate microphone so it's no worry to me. This headset looks pretty good and is on sale. If you want an affordable headset I would recomend waiting for blackfriday and consolting This website for the best sound quality and price.

u/YourBoyZac · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Here's the link if for some reason it isn't linked to the Post itself

u/lilrick110 · 1 pointr/xboxone

I bought this. After I bought my Logitech G430. So I can use it with the 3.5 mm jack on my xbox controller. It is a PC headset with two separate plugs for headphone and microphone. So if anyone is looking for an adapter for a PC headset this is a good choice. I haven't had any problems with this adapter. My only gripe is because my controller is older, the jack tends to shift causing the controller to not work or audio to cut out if moved too much. But that's a controller problem not anything to do with the adapter or the headset.

u/RabidBanana64 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Logitech G430 or Logitech G230. My brother uses the G430, I've tried them and they are great bang for your buck. Very comfortable, reliable, and great sound quality.

u/SenselessCross5 · 1 pointr/discordapp

if you just want bare minimum budget, to save up for the a40s. go for this:
if you want better quality, might I recommend these:
i used these for a few years, and I thought they were decent. Although I'm no audiophile.

u/adventurerix · 1 pointr/buildapcforme
u/b1gfreakn · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I'm aware of these things, hence my previous comment. But the cost of the mod mic alone is more a fairly decent gaming headset. The Logitech G430 is quite nice. I used to own it before I upgraded to the Audiotechnica ATHM50x and a Blue Yeti.

u/darinofsb · 1 pointr/headphones

Budget: MAX: $150 USD

Source: Desktop PC Motherboard. MOBO: ASUS Z170-A. Willing to get soundcard or whatever, included in budget.

Requirements for Isolation: None really, just going to use them in my room, so none necessary.

Will you be using these Headphones in Public?: No.

Preferred Type of Headphone: Full Size.

Preferred tonal balance: Overall Balanced Headphones.

Past headphones: Logitech G430 Headset. When using them on my pc, there is clear static which gets in the way. I never use the microphone because I have my own, so I don't need one. I thought they were pretty comfortable, but tilting my head forward and backward they slide around a lot, often falling off my head. I want to stray away from headsets and to a pure headphone.

Preferred Music: Here are some links. Aire - Tea Time (Miraie Remix), Dansunanba O Tomoni, Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You - Cargo, vivid undress 「シーラカンスダンス」. My genre's are all over the place, here is the whole playlist. Just if the songs listed sound good, I'm for it lol.

What would you like to improve on from your set-up: In my first official pair of headphones I guess I'd just like cleaner (crisp?) balanced headphones. I'd like to hear vocals pretty clear, but not at such a hard cut to the other parts, I don't know if this is possible or not though. I suppose Midrange (vocals?) and the higher range (is this recommended for the music I linked?), and I'm also going to be using them for gaming, but it's not my main concern (although its what I do the most).

I know nothing about what it will take to 'power' these headphones. The closest thing I have is for my microphone I had to buy a Phantom Power supply (similar? I'm new) I'm willing to have to buy a soundcard or whatever, but please include the cost with the budget. I'd probably have to buy either the headphone or what ever I need at separate times. I'm a poor high school student. I really appreciate the help! Thanks!

u/boxcarracer1478 · 1 pointr/buildapcforme
Made the right compromises here, without failing to meet your friend's goals.

I think this will do great.

Didn't go with Kabylake, as the base Mobos are still expensive.

This has room to upgrade down the line. You can add more RAM, add some more fans/LEDs, and change the peripherals.

The 144Hz monitor will be great for gaming, and the 3GB 1060 should hit 1080p frames in most new games nicely. Its almost identical in performance to the 970 of the previous generation, at a friendly price tag.

As for a headset, I'd pick up the Logitech G430 if he wants to stick with the blue accents. The mouse and keyboard do this.

  1. Correct, it's not traditional DLC. You do NOT have to buy the coin/pass to play on the new maps, or get new skins. The coin/pass will make you possibly receive those skins/cases randomly in drops, and give you missions to play that...really don't actually do anything but change the color of your coin and give you non-standard objectives to complete.

    You can get the maps you've missed in previous operations, as they're all workshop maps created by the community. Valve just 'highlights' some maps per operation.

  2. I loved my G430, and a lot of people seem to as well. I'm currently running with the Triton 720+, and like them as well..but the G430 was honestly more comfae.

LOGITECH G430 DTS Headphone: X and Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset (981-000536)

u/WiseTL · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

This is the one I use. I don't know if it's the best but it's served me well.

u/McSalterson · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

There is nothing wrong with gaming headsets, and I am a bit of an audiophile.

I just recently bought the Logitech G430 for $59 and I'm honestly really happy with the sound, ease of use, and build. After installing the Logitech software and hearing the surround sound test, I was extremely happy.

I still have the setup I used in my peasant days. Sennheiser HD595 (I paid $250), and the Astro Mixamp, but they're sitting in a box. It's just not convenient, and there are a ton of extra wires and adapters to get everything up and running. I'll use these headphones at night when I'm watching TV because I can just plug the 1/4" headphones into my A/V receiver.

When I'm gaming, I like the simplicity of gaming headsets. They may not sound as good as audiophile headphones, but that doesn't mean they're crap or a poor value. There is a difference, but it's not a night and day difference. For me (and many others), the convenience trumps relatively small increases in sound quality.

u/tinyJman · 1 pointr/buildapc

Had a pair of Logitech g430's before recently upgrading, and it sounds like this could be a good headset for you aswell. For how cheap they are, they are pretty good, well built headphones, that tick everything you ask for. (decent sound quality for music and stuff too imo)

They aren't noise canceling, come with an optional usb connector, have massive ear cups, a big headband that adjusts a lot, and comes with a mic.

TL;DR: check out the Logitech g430's, good bang for buck.

u/illusivewraith · 1 pointr/FortNiteBR

Logitech G430, great headset with tons of positive reviews all over the internet (I used to own a pair as well). Only $36!

u/Aema · 1 pointr/pcgaming

Hey, thanks, I do remember seeing these before, but it's been a while since I looked. I remember previously I found a lot of things that said 5.1, but weren't and a lot that them had other weird misgivings.

For instance, here's a pair of Logitech 7.1 headphones for $40: They are just mini-jack headphones with a DSP/USB adapter, so it's doubtful that they are actually 7.1, unless there's some weird proprietary technology between the analog drivers and the USB dongle. One reviewer even said, "Not sure how the '7.1 Surround' works, as they are not digital headphones."

u/Hershfam · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I have these ones and they’re incredibly light and comfy I can play for 7 hours and them not get uncomfortable. Amazing for the price. But I’ve also heard good things about these but I’ve never had them so I can’t give my own opinion.

u/ssmahony · 1 pointr/GlobalOffensive

Yeah at northern arena they forced should have forced the players to use noise cancelling "3m earmuffs" (like these) which don't put out any audio. The only way to get audio would be to use earbuds. I know stewie2k uses generic Apple earbuds, however some pro's decide to go with higher end earbuds. Either way you don't really want to be using earbuds at home.

But if you are just asking about what headset to get for CS, the most common headset among pro's are the Senhizer's, if you are looking for something cheaper though Astro's, Hyper X Cloud II's , and Logitech G430's are also very popular.

I'm also going to take this opprotunity to point out that you shouldn't be using the default CS:GO sound settings, but you can read more about that here

I never realized how weak the Canadian dollar is, I was really surprised at how much less it gets you. This is based on the "Crusher" build from the /r/pcmasterrace wiki, plus a keyboard and monitor. I don't have any direct experience with any of these parts besides the monitor, which I got for my girlfriend's computer build (and it's a great monitor at that price)

If you're looking to spend more, the first places to do it are

1. Better motherboard
2. Better keyboard
3. Better processor

Now for other recommendations. I stream on twitch as well, (mostly World of Tanks and other games), and I mostly use a Logitech G430 as my headphones/mic. If you're looking for a new mouse, Redragon makes really great mice at really good prices, I use a Redragon Perdition as my primary mouse for gaming, a Redragon Nemeanlion at work, and a Redragon Centrophorus for my secondary computer (used as a server and for doing distributed computing). For a webcam, I use a Logitech C920

u/XhoK · 1 pointr/Battlefield

My friend uses the Logitech G430's and he sounds completely fine quality wise. I can't comment on the audio quality since I've never used the headset myself, though.

u/Tunic · 1 pointr/patientgamers

I use a Logitech F540 I got from a Dented Box deal some years ago (maybe 2 now). The battery died and I replaced it (quick fix) for 11 USD. I paid 89 for the headset and it has been amazing.

That said the cost for this set seems to be a bit high so I dug around looking for some good deals on gaming headsets, assuming you wanted to buy them all new. - The G230 seems to have decent reviews at about 45. - The G430 seems to also be a decently reviewed set for 67. - These brands seem to be suggested a lot. Decent reviews for ~41. - Here is a Diablo branded Steelseries headset, good brand good reviews for 62.

There can be some money saved going used and for example on the Steelseries set Amazon Warehouse Deals sells a set for 47.85 with free shipping and "Minor Cosmetic Damage". If AWD is anything like Logitech their "minor cosmetic damage" is mostly the box.

Hope I wasn't too late and these links can get you moving somewhere.

u/Lukekk · 1 pointr/GlobalOffensive

The logitech g430 is the best one you can buy for usb imo. The build quality is outstanding, the sound is decent, and because of the sports type fabric on the cushions it breathes very well and you can wear it for hours.

u/Spamakin · 1 pointr/headphones
  • Budget: <$30 (can go higher if it's absolutely necessary, but I would rather not.)

  • Source: Headphone jacks on phone and computer. Not looking for anything that needs a DAC.

  • Requirements for Isolation: I NEED good, if not medium isolation/cancellation. They way my setup is I have my bro's computer right next to me. The fan can get loud and he talks very loud into the mic. He also constantly messes with dice and throws them around on his desk which is loud as all hell. He also hits the table every now and then in frustration. Also his keyboard is mechanical, and mine, while not mechanical, is loud enough to get annoying even to me.

  • Public?: I will be using these on bike rides, car rides, planes, and at home. If outside I usually leave an ear open so it shouldn't make a difference.

  • Types: I would like either over ear/full or IEM's

  • Tonal balance: Balanced overall please, nothing balanced too much towards one end.

  • Past Headphones: I have used the Logitech G430 Surround Sound and Panasonic ErgoFit RP-HJE120-K before, both of which I liked.

  • Music/What I listen to: I mainly listen to podcasts, but I do listen to a fair amount of electronic music and electro swing, with some rock / jazz here and there.

  • Improvements: Main thing is that I want good isolation/cancellation.
u/BundtCaek · 1 pointr/headphones

Budget: ~$80 preferably, $110 maximum

Source: 3.5mm jack in a computer

Requirements for Isolation: None

I will not be using these headphones in public.

Preferred Type of Headphone: Full sized, preferably over-ear but anything will work. Long listening sessions need to be comfortable, and open eared headphones would be nice as well.

Preferred tonal balance: I'd prefer an overall balanced set of headphones. Most of the stuff I listen to has vocals so mid emphasis would be nice as well.

Past headphones: Logitech G430

Preferred Music: Usually Lana Del Rey and some other music

What would you like to improve on from your set-up: I'd like to have a headset that is somewhat sturdy. I understand that at this price range that this goal may not be possible, but it's one I'd like to keep in mind.

One of my friends recommended this and another recommended this, if that helps.

u/CinnamonUranium · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

I have a few things which I will be posting tomorrow. I have prices in mind, just want to get a rough idea of the prices and how much it would cost to ship.

u/CallMeYourGod · 1 pointr/buildapc

I don't think this is the right sub for that question, but this is a nice headset well below your budget.

Also, if you really want a higher end one, this is an excellent option.

u/Celidion · 1 pointr/headphones

Budget: ~$40

Source: PC

Requirements for Isolation: Noise Cancellation

Preferred Type: Over Ear

Last few things are fairly irrelevant since I'm not picky at all.

So I've started playing video games again and I really need a new mic. I was planning on just buying a gaming headset since there's a good amount of them for around ~$30 but I know it's better to buy headphones + a separate mic. My main issue is, I'm not really that concerned with a great quality. Can I even realistically get a mic + headphones for ~$30-40 that will be significantly better than just a headset with a similar price? Obviously if my budget was higher I could understand that there's a huge difference because most headsets are all marketing, but at this level I'm unsure. I'm currently looking at these two headsets:

I realize they're probably terrible by this sub's standards, but I've literally been using $10 earbuds for over a year for my computer, as I'm not an audiophile by any means.
I looked at the buying guide and there aren't many options for under $50, which is outside of my budget anyway, and that doesn't even cover the cost of the mic as well.

u/NeonGreenTiger · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Haha! I can enter this one :D

Before the Goddamned Marines get all of the credit. The Coast Guard will be there :P

But seriously, here's something that I would like becuase my current headphones are pretty much fried :(

Edit: This is my updated item because my origional item keeps fluxuating in price -_-. If I do win, and the first item is less than $50 (it's prime eligable), I would prefer it. But if not, that's why I linked this item :).

Thank you for the contest!

u/ryguy867 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I forgot a headset but this one is really good for the price

u/PhantomIsFrightened · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

For LANs, I recommend the Logitech G430s. For home, I recommend something like the Sennheisher HD 598s if you have a large budget and play alone in a room (due to them being open back) and pair it with a dedicated mic like a Blu Yeti. I, personally, would stray away from both of the headphones you have listed due to the fact that they are both marketed towards gamers, and generally, headsets of the sort will be of poorer quality (more on that here). If you're on a tight budget, but still want high quality sound, I'd recommend a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50Xs' with the Blu Snowball. I also saw you mention the kinds of headsets used by professional gamers. Pros usually are sponsored by certain brands, and in turn, use the brands gear (such as mice, keyboards, headphones, etc.). Additionally, pros generally use 2 separate pairs of headphones, one pair of in-ear monitors, and one pair for noise cancellation. The pair used for noise cancellation is generally one own of their sponsors. As you continue to search for a pair, please consider what I have mentioned, and feel free to ask me any questions.

u/arkhira · 0 pointsr/pcmasterrace

How cheap are you looking for? This is fairly cheap and it fits large heads with glasses very well.

I had it for a while and it was my favorite budget headset. The only reason I don't use it anymore is even though the mic is on flexible rubber the wires inside do break. Mine broke after 4 years of use. It can last longer if your really careful with it.

u/ErikWolfe · 0 pointsr/Gaming_Gear

The Logitech G430 may be a good option for a budget. Other than that and the HyperX Cloud 2, Plantronics GameCom 788 is a solid choice too. I know streamers that use both of those headsets. The only issue is that the G430's mic may not be what you're looking for, but the headset and a $50 Blue Yeti Snowball come in at just about $110 before shipping.

My suggestion doesn't pertain to the build itself; rather the headphones you chose. I've used the G230 as well as the G430, and the G430 sounds just so much better with virtual surround sound. You can find it here for $64.99, and I personally think the $30 more is worth it.

Good 'ol trusty Logitech G430s. They work great, solid mic (don't have to "add a mic" like everything everyone else linked) and cheap to replace if you break em.

Dunno about anyone else, but I like my Logitech G430s
