Finally unlocked my first tier 9, the E50. Now only 3 million more credits to go until I can buy it. I foresee a good run with the Type 59 for a few nights in my future.

I usually manage to kill a wired headset in about a year.

I may have to give these a try.
I got a Creative HS-800 Fatal1ty set for xmas and they are now 1/2 dead (mic works, very little sound).
Might not be the headsets fault as the kids were messing with them.
It may just be the volume wheel, but still...

Would one of us do something like that?

I've had mine for six months, and they still look/sound like new. No apparent fatigue in the plastics. But I have managed to keep my kids away from them.

I should ask for a commission...

I'm using a set of bose with noise cancellation - only issue with them is when I get excited I talk way to loud and the Mrs has to throw things at me to get me to shut up (because I can't hear her ). They were a few hundred bucks but I use them when flying & stuff too when I want some peace and quiet so they've been money well spent.

One thing I like about them is the "quick release" at the headphone itself.. so if you trip over the cord or what-not, it just unplugs without damage.

I have some bluetooth ones too.. but I'm not a fan of battery management nor the decreased sound quality.

I've had this setup for a while and like it but if I had to replace it I'd probably go with some Sennheiser HD 598s or 650s.

FWIW

My Creative set got good reviews, no one had any issues, and I like them.
I suspect the volume wheel got turned up to 11 or down to -1.

Obviously, I'll run in a Type platoon with you anytime we're on together. I can always use the creds......and another Tier 9 in the clan to play with.

And I was going back and looking at this graphic....



....and I realized that the three of us together scored more xp than their top 13 players combined.

Holy shit. I didn't notice that. I always find it weird now looking at screenshots that show the percentage of life left. It seems like such a useless statistic. I really like the mod that shows damage done in that column instead. If I remember correctly, the 3 of us did over 7k in combined damage.

I didn't know there was such a mod, but I'd like to have it.

I think I have it, but I don't know which one did it... and it is only for your team. The mod I think also put the damage delt and the net credits on the front page of the end of battle report.
