Hey im looking to buy a new headset my $ limit is around $200 give or take a bit,
Iv been recommended both the hyperX cloud 2 and the hyperX revolver but after watching some reviews both have good merits so i was wondering what would anyone recommend be it one of these two or something else. I have a Blue yeti desktop mic so it doesnt need to have a microphone but when i travel to lans i wouldnt be taking my yeti so it might be useful to have one.

Suggestions?

Steelseries Siberias are really solid for their price, ranges from 60-120. But yeah can't go wrong with Cloud 2s

I use a ATH-M50x with a modmic 4.0, haven't had any issues with it and doubles as a sick headset to listen to music with. Cost me about ~$215 all up but waited for some deals.

Pretty much what has been said SS Siberia 200 or a Sennheiser headset powered by a decent sound card that has a headset ampilfier should be suffice when it comes to competitive gaming.

ATH-M50x is great, especially if you're in NZ, can get that shit for fly buy points, at least thats how I got my pair, great for music and I can hear everything in game

Cloud 2's are good, but nothing special. Mostly just bang for your buck.
