it has some issues with mic bleeding through due to some weird sensitivity problems… granted this issue was far more severe in the game one but is still present in some cases… other than that? Never really had issues with them…
I really try not to take any forms of charity of the like, been offered alternatives as well for helping people and I turn them down
if you check drop on pc38x you will see the comparison on the frequency response at the same time the overall presentation is a bit different and its sharper with a bit larger on the stage… it performs better than 37x pretty much all around in most cases… though I will admit quite a few of the changes are a bit minimal/negligible.
I want to say… about 95% of them are horrid… Those that are good like the pc38x have cheaper better alternatives in the headphone market… which is the real issue. The heavily touted logitech g pro whatever the hell its at now and things like steel series are just straight up junk that only excels in decent sound and good imaging yet charge you a fortune for them.
In truth, headsets like the pc37x and game one are just similar to the hd 500 series like the classic HD 598(if you watched markiplier you know this is his go to headphone btw), others like hyperx and coolermaster like mh751 took the takstar pro 82 headphone and converted it to a gaming headset just with some tweaks here and there which they keep redoing and changing the price. Steel series you got me there… they are decent though.
The only headsets I have found even remotely worth a damn were let me think
Pc37x/38x/game one. 38x is over hyped as shit though.
Astro A40(not a50 it had some issues) with its mixamp ONLY with its mixamp
Steel Series arctis pro with game dac. over priced as shit but decent… however only good with its dac
Audeze penrose… this thing is astonishingly good for a headset thats wireless just expensive as hell
Hyperx Flight: wireless… bassy as shit… damn solid for casual gaming
GSP 500/600 good for casual gaming… good clarity… good tonal balance from a sennheiser but only good as a gaming headset
Logitechs I mean, these have become pretty standard these days when it comes to competitive venue practice… so I have to mention them… absolute junk but if someones just wanting a practice headset… good spot for it here
Mh751,752,630,650,670… probably the absolute best budget closed back headset on the market for both types of gaming… sound is very good, comes with equalization software and each variation has a somewhat different tonal presentation and pad choice.
Out of all that the best are pc38x and its clones for open , MH series for closed, and audeze penrose for wireless.
I personally found the mh630 to be more in line with my taste… I like the cloth pads and lighter feel to the sound… plus its just as customizable… its just a bit more casual friendly to me personally not to mention cheaper… though mh751 definitely has the better imaging. The mh751 and its 752 counterpart have some of the best fps capabilities of the closed back gaming headsets I have tried to date which explains their praise… they really are damn good for what they are.
you are more than welcome here to ask myself and others in the audiophile hobby questions. I just happen to be on the gaming side of things. I tried to be subjective and give people a lot of thought and facts so they can choose… theres too many bs reviews out there these days that just scream how great a lot of things like certain headsets are or that for gaming your headphones dont matter. when all that is just junk information. Since I retired from the competitive circuit(might make a comeback? no idea… depends on how halo infinite goes honestly) I found getting into audio to be the next best thing so helping other gamers experience that thrill as well is something I enjoy doing.
