Budget is around $250, refurbished from something like eBay is acceptable to lower the price. I love great sound quality, but my friend has a pair of Astro A50s and they have average sound, and the mic sounds like a potato on the other end. They are extremely comfortable on the upside. These are around $350 brand new, and I feel like I am running into a dead end asking for so much at $250. Ideas?

PC37X/Game Ones and then pick up a used/refurbed Sennheiser GSX1000. The combo will obliterate your friends A50s.

Is the amp required? Or is it just for the surround sound?

I have the ASUS Strix Z370 Gaming-e mobo, I am guessing it's got some decent audio, but will it be fine for the headset?

Sennheiser PC37X or their Game series.

If you aren't averse to getting a Modmic or something, you have a lot more options.

Is there a wireless version of this?
