Waiting for a deal on steel series bully hunters.
Excellent headset
I couldn't get on with this headset. Not as good audio wise or comfort wise compared to say a Hyper X Cloud.
I found the cloud to be too tight and too bassy, how would I fare with this do you think?
I've had a few different astro and trittons over the years and at the moment got some a50s (that need replacing) that I've always got on with fine.
The industrial design on these is awful, the hinge goes hard for looks over strength. Look at the steelseries subreddit, it's a continual horrorshow of cracked and breaking headsets from normal use, with steelseries staff comments (when they're not removing criticism) saying it would be "too expensive" to have a metal hinge instead of brittle plastic.

Indeed, nonsense when other headsets in the same budget range don't have this issue, even plastic ones. For a little more than this I would personally recommend the ROG Delta core. It has a generally pleasing aesthetic (imo), the sound quality is great for a gaming headset, and unlike most the microphone is really good with a clear and natural sound. Build quiality is great too and you get both leather and cloth pads.

As said above, Hyper X Cloud is often on offer and a cracking headset. The near field mic is terrific and the SQ is decent.

Agreed and paired with a decent mix amp they are incredible.
