Gamer Problems: Headset Death

So... my PS3 headset met with an unfortunate accident last night, so I had to do some research before bed because I need people to hear me when I'm screaming at them on games. Wait, I didn't mean that. Yes, this will be my third one in the last year if you've been keeping up and taking bets like some of my friends have. Look, don't judge me. My headsets and I have a bad romance.

Anyhow, I decided to invest in a good wireless headset because I really hate the little bluetooth that sticks in your ear. Most of the time they're uncomfortable, especially since you can't change the size of the in-ear piece on many of them, and I usually need to use the smallest one to be comfortable. My ears aren't necessarily super small, but my canals are still easily agitated by in-ear pieces if I don't use the smallest size.

All my gamer friends who are serious about this stuff said I needed to buy a Turtle Beach headset, and that they'd be worth the money. I had settled on just getting the PS3 headset, though, since all my other gaming devices have their own headsets. And honestly, I figured I didn't need to spend that much on a headset for that reason, so I was all settled on my PS3 headset until I got to the store.

It was a trap from the beginning. You have your PS3 headset, and then, you have these awesome looking headsets right beside them that proclaim to be awesome and will work with all your gaming devices for maximum gaming experience and just be so seriously awesome... and whoa, price tag, but awesome! Did I mention they're supposed to be awesome?

I bought them because if I'm going to invest a new headset might as get something that everything will work with except I don't know what I'm going to do when I'm wearing my hair out. My hair defies over-the-head headsets like you wouldn't believe. Haven't opened them yet since I bought them on my lunch break, but I'll be back in about a week or two with my thoughts.

(Side note: thanks to everyone who endured my whining about this situation right before I went to bed and offered your input. You're great. I love you. Don't ever change.)


This blog is a mishmash of thoughts, pictures, and rantings among other things about games I've played, games I will play, and games I am currently playing. From time to time, I may post book reviews that I've written that are about different games and/or game worlds. Feel free to recommend games or add me on the platforms I've listed. I don't do competitive multiplayer much anymore, but I'm always down for some co-op these days. I'm usually DigitalTempest everywhere unless otherwise specified.
