I play cross platform Call of Duty with my buddy who’s been out of a job since COVID hit. I’d like to do something nice for him and buy him a nice audio setup for gaming and music. He currently has an old bose headset, but I’m not sure how he has it hooked up. He wears glasses a lot so it’d be a bonus if it’s comfy too! He mainly listens to rock music.
I was hoping to spend around $100-150. I’m happy to go over if it means better value / build quality / Footstep placement since I know that’s a pretty low budget for good quality cans and this would be his first nice audio setup.
Lastly, he’s on xbox so if it’s a more gamer centric headset it’d have to be compatible with that console. I have an xbox chat adapter I can send him already if that will work but if he won’t need it that’s even better.
I’ve been eying the Philips SHP9500 and a vmoda boom mic. They seemed to be a good budget recommendation and regarded as great value in the places I’ve looked. How do they fair for footstep placement? I’d be willing to step up to the x2s if it means better quality and general use too.
Thanks for the help! <3
