Hi,

As per title I'm looking for a headset, will be my first time purchasing one so I have nothing direct to go against. I listed the product page to show the most sold option, and it returned the Razer Kraken X Lite 7.1. This is within my budget, but I could go a little further if the gains were worthy.

Primary usage will be gaming / chatting on discord.

If the one I have listed is already a solid choice, please let me know and I'll pick one up.

Yeah its pretty good for the price point. Solid sound on the 40mm drivers and mic quality sounds fine.

On the high end of the scale for headsets it would probably be the Sennheiser (now "Epos") game zero or one. Then higher sound quality than that is something like the Beyerdynamic dt 770 pro (if you like music, should still work on most motherboards at 80 ohm) paired with a modmic or standalone mic. Endgame is obviously the amp/dac to power a high quality headset

I cannot fault my Sennheiser GSP300's. They've lasted far longer than any Headset I've ever had. I got some new 3rd party earcups as the originals were very tatty but other than that they work perfect. I liked it so much I got my Son a set for Christmas 2020 and his are still going strong too.

Hi @MissChief, that does look like a really nice headset, how well does it do 3d for gaming? Been quite a fan of sennheiser for many years now :)
It's actually very good, yes but is only a stereo headset. I have had easily half a dozen over the years and found that cheap ones are uncomfortable and rarely last long. Even moving up to £30-£60 doesn't really change much. Often you're paying for the brand, not quality. Their reliability was no better than the cheaper sets. I found you really need to pay £80+ to get a good set with good mic and speakers that are comfortable (ALWAYS go Over ear, not on ear. On ear suck) and reliable.
