I'm searching for a good headset for gaming and hearing music. And I don't know which headsets are good and which aren't.

To specify my question, I'm searching for a headset, that

  • is good for gaming / hearing music (good sound quality)
  • costs between 100€ and 200€
  • is well-made (lasts for a long time)
  • supports 600ohm soundcard
  • is made out of metal (e.g. aluminium) [not really needed if it's well-made]
  • has a good microphone for recording + teamspeak

I hope somebody knows something that fits these "requirements". If possible, the headset can also have

  • a controller
  • led lights
  • a black and red color scheme

I have already taken a look at some things and thought about buying a beyerdynamics MMX 300 but this costs too much and is literally just a headset with a microphone. Another headset I thought would be good is an Astro a40 but this would be a little bit too expensive.

If you think I can't get everything I want with this budget, let me know.

Not so easy to find Gaming headset with 600ohm. I know the Sennheiser HMD 26-II-600-X3K1 but it's out of your range.

600ohm is better but it doesn't mean that you cannot use lower impedence headset (http://www.cnet.com/news/headphone-buyers-heres-what-you-need-to-know-about-low-vs-high-impedance-models/)

Considering this, going for the HyperX Cloud Revolver might be a good solution because:

  • In your price range (130€)
  • Good reviews (espcially on sound and mic)
  • Steel and well made
  • LEDs
  • Controller
  • Black and red
  • This thing looks great! Don't know where the LEDs are but they are irrelevant. I think I might go for this one if I don't find anything else :)

  • I think that the LEDs are behind the red logo on both sides ;)
