You guys spend $2000+ on gaming rigs just to plug a "gaming headset" into them instead of a quality pair of headphones? A set of ATH-AD500x will sound infinitely better than anything Steelseries makes for less than $100. Throw on a modmic and now it's a headset.
 
Well, I doubt you'll have a better go with the Arctis'.... last I heard, they were still unable to provide a replacement for that bs proprietary cable they use.

@TACGNOL06 Not everyone wants the inconvenience of dealing with a desktop mic or modding a nice pair of headphones with crap like Modmic. I don't have space for an additional microphone.

Plus, it can be awkward finding something solid with a suspension headband design a la Arctis/Siberia, and if it doesn't have that then it's piss, flat out. Awkward though, since I'm not sure I can use SS in the future due to their falling in with a bunch of SJW types to promote a cancerous online campaign.
