So i recently had enough of my steelseries siberia V2, the microphone is pretty bad and no one can ever hear what i am saying unless im yelling and blowing into it, and not recently my right ear cup stopped working unless i bend the wire in a certain way and keep it there.
I have only had these headphones for maybe a year, so im looking for something good that will last me a long time.
I will be buying a gaming sound card to go with them but at the moment i am only interested in figuring out which headphones i am going to buy.
I AM looking for Gaming Headphones and i have recently been looking at the Astro A50, but they are the most expensive headset i have ever seen. I am willing to spend the money on them but i am not willing to find out that they are terrible and waste $300.
Im looking for advice and options, what do you think of the Astro headphones, if not what else can i look at that is just as or almost as good.
The SteelSeries 7H is probably the best sounding gaming headset on the market.
i would rather not buy anymore steelseries headphones, the crappy quality of the siberia really turned me off from their products
Sad for you, had mine for a long time now and i don't had trouble with but if you plan on 300$ range i'm pretty sure you should check the Sennheiser PC360 as it's surely the best you can get at this price !!
PS: if you plan on great headset like this, make sure you pick a sound card with an Heaphone Amp to benifit from that well spent money ;)

The Siberia was made more for comfort rather than sound quality. The design is a little less durable than their higher end headsets. I own the 5H V2 and the 7H and they are both fantastic, never had any problems with them.
If you have a local Professional Audio supplier or store (possibly Guitar Center), go there and tell them you are looking for a good pair of cans (price range, intended use, etc). Most places I have been to have let me sample their headphones at length. The nearby audio supplier had a burned-in pair of Grado GS1000i that I couldn't afford but they allowed me to watch Pulp-Fiction from beginning to end. They never seem very busy, but they normally make large volume sales.
In the spirit of helping you further (assuming you haven't already purchased a pair), what is your budget for this headset and what kind of headset would you prefer: Over-ear, in-ear, around the neck, etc...
