And go buy the headphone (AD700, BT880, etc) & clip on mic (Zalmann, etc) of your choice. You still pretty much will come out the same in the end, and you got to try all options for yourself.
I personally use my A40 setup on my Xbox360 only and dont have a single complaint other than the sheer number of wires (4 wires hooked up at all times). The complicated number of wires.. is the main reason I couldnt care less about getting a better headphone & clip on mic.
Thanks Daekwan; I've got my first kid coming in a week so I know I won't have time to thoroughly test all these headsets; I was hoping to leverage folks like you who have had direct experience with some of them... That being said, I'll be a bit more pointed with my questions in hopes of getting some specific answers... so, to all:
(just headsets, not A40 mixamp impressions)
A40 headset vs. Senn HD280Pros?
Senn HD280 Pros vs. Ber MX300?
BT880 vs. HD280/MX300/A40 (worth the extra money/hassle?)
BT880 vs. any other in that price range...
In addition, I've found a few lists of amps, but they're quite extensive. Can someone recommend and amp or two in the $100 - $200 price range? (an amp-amp, not the A40 mixamp. I'd get this if I got the BT880 or something in that class...)
Thanks in advance!
