*skipping half way down the post is probably a good idea :-)*
This is going to be a bit of an odd request, but my speakers and PC headset now are really starting to become a bit of a pain so I'm going to get some new stuff I think. Both sound pretty good, though I'm no audiophile, and the microphone on the headset is great, but it's just the 'little niggly things' that are a problem.
Things I hate about my Medusa Headset:
- Cables, absolutely bloody loads of cables, more cables than the rest of my PC put together. It uses 5.1 sound but that means I need to ditch the microphone since I only have 5 ports on my sound card, so I never get to use center anyway. The plug's a European one and the adapter I've got is shonky. Oh, and did I mention the cables?
Things I hate about my Creative Speakers:
- Again, absolutely bloody loads of cables, it's unbelievable how much stuff there is just for two speakers and a sub! The most annoying bit is that the sub is on the floor, and I have to crawl under the desk every time I want to turn them on and off, oh and there's a ridiculous amount of cables.
So, I am after some headphones that:
+ Just has two cables, 2.1 sound or whatever and one for the microphone. Also, a little adapter thing or whatever which means I can have my speakers and microphone plugged in at the same time, decent sound quality is a bonus. OH! And one that doesn't need a separate amp and isn't plugged into the mains please.
Also, I am after speakers that:
+ Sound as good as possible but preferably no subwoofer, only 2 speakers and a power button in a reasonable place! Oh, and not a separate volume control that keeps disappearing down the back of my desk either.
As 'good value' as possible, so that I won't feel so bad about getting rid of my perfectly good yet incredibly annoying current equipment, thank you!
