Great headphones - but the price is right

Great headphones - but the price is right


This is a gaming headset.
I've bought nothing but gaming headsets from around 2004 onwards and have always paid a fairly high price for each pair as I tend to research the best available pairs. I bought some Roccat Kave's and they were very good, very comfortable with what seemed like brilliant sound.

But... And it's a big "But". I read some reviews online regarding a new pair after my mic packed in on the Roccat Kave's and viewed this video...

I bit and bought a pair of Samson SR850 (newest version of those in the video) and was astounded with the difference they made, not just in gaming, but for music production and audio overall on my PC. The difference was unreal.

I paired it with a Zalman clip-on mic which cost about £6.50 on Amazon and had a headset that simply blew everything else I'd ever used away for around just shy of £35 delivered.

It's worth considering this option the next time you're tempted to buy a new gaming headset.

Apologies for the long-winded post, but I think it's important since I myself had been caught up in the "Gaming Headset" marketing garb. This is a deal website after all.

I hope this helps!

Wait till November, that's a long way off if you need a new headset now.

Thank you, really helpful. I might have misunderstood, but how is the Samson SR850 the newer version when they are made by a different company?

Sorry, I've just picked this up now. From what I've read, they're somehow the newer version of the 950s confusingly... I can vouch for their sound quality and the foam padding is much more durable than others I've used although one slight downside I've noticed lately as the band is a little grabby or tight and can become quite uncomfortable after a few hours use although my head is a bit bigger than your average noggin so it may just be me

The sound quality however is exceptional for the price and I often play games with my old Kave set then replay them with these just to see the difference. Its night and day as I often hear notes, sounds and background noise my "gaming headset" just didn't reproduce despite using the same source - an external USB Audio card

On the strength of your review I've bought some, thank you for getting back to me. Really looking forward to trying them on ps4.

Hopefully the PS4 is able to get the best out of them. I'm unsure of the audio reproduction hardware/software on the PS4 as I've used mine on a PC with a dedicated sound-card for Music programs and light gaming.

Let me know how you get on, I'd be very interested to hear your experience.

Very comfortable, sound is I think slightly better than the senheisers I was using. Tried them on my mobile phone with high quality Spotify and it was sublime, every detail absolutely clear to my ears. Possibly too good for ps4?
