    I paired the Sound Blaster Recon3Di sound processor with a set of Sennheiser HD518 and I am simply amazed and how much better the sound quality is compared with my previous Realtek setup. I cannot state enough how important it is that you pair a high quality set of headphones with this sound processor. Prior to the Sennheisers I was using Kingston HyperX Clouds. The Kingstons are a nice budget headset, but the Sennheisers are a significant improvement. The Sennheiser G4ME series uses the same drivers, but includes a microphone. Unfortunately, this is at three times the cost ($150). To create my gaming headset I added an Antlion Modmic to my HD518s for $42.

    Great headphones, snagged these on sale for about $120 CAD about a year ago. Pairing them with a Blue Yeti mic is a great option. They sound amazing, could not recommend more.

    Cheaper than most gaming headsets and sounds better than most gaming headsets. I am super happy with the sound quality and how comfortable they are. Keep in mind that they are very open so anyone around you will hear you pretty loudly.
