Title: Looking for recommendations re: a new wireless headset w/mic
Post by: AKA_Greywolf on December 11, 2017, 08:39:05 am
Hey guys, I am looking to replace my old WIRED headset and microphone system with one of the newer wireless type headset and microphone systems.

I have been looking online at Amazon for some of these, but the headsets look extremely huge and problematic for attaching the TrackIR5 Trackclip Pro LED device.

Anybody in the squad have a wireless headset and mic system that also uses the Trackclip Pro headset?
If so, what brand and type are you using. I am looking at the CORSAIR VOID PRO RGB Wireless Gaming Headset and would like some feedback before I decide to buy.

Thanks

YES!!!!
Look at the Teknmotion headset with mike. Been using mine for quite a while now and it's pretty inexpensive. I'll be getting another set when I see it back at Fry's.

Oops, did not see that WIRELESS word with sufficient attention.
I have tried a couple different versions and found them to be a pain in the tailfeathers what with the batteries needing recharges and the extra wide headstraps not working with my TrackIR without cutting into them, which I was hesitant to do, so I just stuck with the wired ones.

Sorry.

This might help Grey http://www.pcgamer.com/the-best-wireless-gaming-headsets/ (http://www.pcgamer.com/the-best-wireless-gaming-headsets/)

I had these
https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Wireless-Surround-Headphones-Microphone/dp/B003VANOFY (https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Wireless-Surround-Headphones-Microphone/dp/B003VANOFY)

They were good but died after a few years .....you just need to be creative as to how you attach your clip by using electrical tape/zip ties/velcro or whatever .... If I remember correctly I  think I taped mine to the top with electrical tape . If you forget to charge or they die while using you'll have to plug in so you'll need to keep the base close enough so you can do that...

If you decide to spend a lot make sure you get 7.1 surround ....it makes a difference and sounds great.

Sully, Thanks for the info. I decided to go with the Steel Series Arctis 7. It got some great reviews.
