I currently have a Corsair H2100 headset and am having a couple of problems with it, the microphone is emitting an electrical noise and the on/off button needs pressing several times before it works. It is still under warranty, but I don’t like unreliable kit so going to get it repaired and then sell it.
What I want to get is separate headphones and microphone. The headphones will be general use, music, movies and gaming. The microphone just for gaming. I’ve read many reviews and my current thinking is a pair of Sennheiser HD 558 headphones with an Antlion ModMic.
My budget is around £150, I could go higher but want value for money.
This gives me a few question;
Are they good choices? Better options available maybe?
From reviews I’ve read the HD558 and 598 are hard to separate, not worth the extra money for the 598, would people agree?
Does the Antlion ModMic attach to the 558’s ok?
My motherboard is an Asus Z170-pro with Realtek ALC1150 chipset, would a soundcard/amp/dac make any improvement or fine just attaching them to the motherboard?
