What's up there guy. Thanks for the PM to alert me to your reply. I can tell you were very excited to have me read it. Just to clear things up my post was not to poop on you or anything of that nature. In fact I'd say your whole argument is "right on!"
I would for sure not spring $140 for the PC155 nor would I spring $34.99 for the PC150. I posted my review to basically poop on Tae Kim.
Tae Kim did a review on the Sennheiser PC155 headset, and came to the conclusion (from what I understood) that the headset was better off used without the USB connector.
Now *THAT* is a shitty conclusion. It's my opinion that they sound better WITH the USB connector. Period. End of story.
and after testing these headsets on my PC (w/NO HISS, which by the way, could be coming from a bad connection or soundcard)
Not a chance Jack. M-Audio Revolution 7.1 card with a good connection. Remember... the playback was fine it was the recoridng
that generated a hiss. But I'm sure you read the review. That's what turns me on about you (your attention to detail) - Ace Ventura
Anyway, after reading your lovely little post I now have new questions.
I'll be attacking you (which I wasn't doing before)
* :: pulls out shotgun ::
Anyone who is going to spend $140.00 for a headset should ALREADY have a decent soundcard.
Damn right. And the PC150 for $35.00 are total shit. What a sorry waste of money on an Audigy2 level sound card.
And if you do have a decent soundcard, then you're WASTING your money spending what YOU DON'T NEED!
If you don't have a decent soundcard you shouldn't be gaming anyway! And again, if you *DO* have a decent sound card only an CHEAP ASS would buy a $35 dollar sorry ass headset.
Also, the comfort of these headsets are just as amazing!!! Even though my ears are bigger than the earpads, they are STILL comfortable (AND I ALSO WEAR GLASSES!!!)
Big ears, small head. The earpads suck period. Too damn small. The headphones are CHEAP man. Cheap in price, sound quality, and comfort. Deal with it. Sennheiser Communications made some shit headphones that tarnish the Sennheiser Electronics brand name. (see intro of my review)
You ready to play with the big boys? Mr. I spent $5000 on my Home Theater setup and prolly blew $3000 on an overpriced TV. If you had any decent audio equipment you should also have some Sennheiser HD 580 headphones as a STARTING POINT. When you're really ready to get serious you should upgrade to the $500 Sennheiser HD 650 headphones. And if you REALLY knew what you were talking about you'd compliment those HD 650 headphones with AT LEAST
a $269 dollar HeadRoom Total BitHead headphone amplifier.
Yes. Now *THAT* my young man is how it is done. Where you're ready to graduate out of broke ass nickel and dime school, you let me know.
