Any update on the legal issue you're having with machinima?
Yep, but I don't know if I can talk about it. All I can say it's looking promising, even if it may take some time (hey at least I can get new videos out finally).



Alright between this thread and emails here are the recommendations I've received on gaming headsets:


-Turtle Beach Ear Force P11

-Turtle Beach Ear Force X12 Gaming Headset

-Turtle Beach Ear Force X32

-Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset

-Razer Blackshark

-Razer Electra

-Razer Carcharias

-Razer Kraken

-Steelseries 5H V2


I haven't done any research on these yet, but feel free to chime in. To narrow it down here are some things to consider:


Mandatory Requirements:

-Must be resistant to mic puff (I should be able to say "Peter picked a peck of pickled peppers" into it without a problem)

-Must not pick up much besides my voice (so if there's some noise in the same room, it's unlikely to get much of it)

-Must be able to handle me being loud (this is more than just recording levels, some mics simply clip if you're shouting into them at any recording volume)


Preferred Items:

-Good headphone quality

-Have some sort of metal core for the headband so it can be reshaped (as opposed to a pure plastic one which inevitably snap on my head)

-Good comfort

-I prefer 3.5mm jacks over USB connection.

-I prefer wired headphones

-Good durability in case they get dropped

Turtle beach are plastic crap, Steel Series are pretty good. I haven't used those Razer headphones but as a rule I don't trust the company.

Don't use Razer... It's cheap plastic crap from China with a 200% markup.


Creative has decent mid-grade hardware at a 150% markup, but crappy customer support.


SteelSeries is good mid-low grade hardware/support for a 100% markup.


I personally recommend Sennheiser products... Sennheiser headsets from Newegg

Don't insult me. I have trained professionals to do that.
