    I've tried expensive h phones and can't tell the difference between them and cheap ones. Spend £25 at the most!

    I’m rocking Astro A50’s (Gen3), best I’ve ever had, can be used on pc too at the flick of a switch. Bit pricey though

    Yeah clicked them but too much for me. Gen 2 for 99 looks a decent deal though

    You can get grade A refurb Gen3’s for £150, 12 month warranty included and they’re as new, that’s how I got mine. Never had an issue, 4 months in

    Thanks think they are the same seller. Found MK2 for 79 will check out to see how much difference there is

    No problem, I can’t comment on the gen 1’s and 2’s as I never owned them. I would search google first for differences/issues, and if there are some, maybe spending that extra for the 3’s will be worth it

    I've been using Astros for year, A40s and A50s and they are excellent imo. Difference between Gen 2 and Gen 3 is with Gen they released versions for both PS and Xbox, the Xbox Version being fully wireless with Xbox where Gen needed the cable from the controller for chat.

    Got some TB stealth 600’s the other day for £75. They seem to do a very nice job. Immersive sound and nice clear mic.

    Can you please tell me why you are not recommending the? I am using the same ones for about a week now and they seem great. I don't want to feel like I am missing out on something even better :(

    Hi Marko

    He's meaning that they're so good, that no matter how much he recommends them, the recommendation won't be good enough because they're such a good headset. It's a positive thing :)

    Ok, I am officially blind. I read that he wrote "can't recommend them though" instead of "enough". FML Thanks CHokKA dude :D
    BTW, yeah, I find the HyperX Cloud awesome too so there goes my recommendation as well :D

    I've definitely taken the suggestions into account. I'm after a new headset, particularly for Xbox One and PC, and I really like the fact that the cord plugs into the headset rather than it being fixed in. I always worry that the cable is going to break or my children might wreck them!

    I used the arctis 5 wired, I have the exact same comments - they are awesome for the price but really low amount of vacuum and noise cancellation, that's why I switched to hyperx.
