Hi, after 6-7 years my Logitech g35 gave up on me. I am looking for a headset which is going to be used for listening to music and gaming.
When it comes to music, I have to say the g35 were barely average so I would like to get a decent improvement.
G35s were strictly designed for 7.1 gaming and I wouldnt like a downgrade in that department.
From what Ive read I understand that USB headsets have their own built in audio drivers?
I also have to mention that im using Asus xonar dgx sound card.

My budget varies...
If there is a pair up to 100usd which can do both than great, but from what I have read so far there isnt but I may be wrong.
I know that possibly the best way would be buying an amp and a decent high impendace headset. Lets say my limit is 200usd

What are your thoughts guys? Can you help?

Actually they have their own little sound card (chip) built in

You weren't using it with the G35. Not sure if 7.1 / 3.5mm headsets exist anymore.

I know that i wasnt using it. I only bought the sound card to power up my speakers.
Do you have any ideas what would be the best pick for me?
I was looking at Sennheiser and Bayerdynamics headphones but I wonder if they can do both gaming and music at good enough level

I have Corsair Void Pro USB headset. Audiophiles probably will want something better. For me these made a proof about how 140$ headset (at time of purchase) differ from 40$ headset. Very decent sound quality. Speech clarity is amazing - first headset where I hear basically anything said and I'm no longer need to turn on subtitles in some games to understand about what NPCs are talking. More than enough for my needs - music, games and work chat in Zoom/Skype etc. Works in both Windows and Linux.
