So, my shitty little Logitech headset broke and I decided to invest in a decent mic and pair of headphones. I looked around online a bit and found the "Gaming Headsets Suck: $150 Replacement Guide" to be the most helpful, And I eventually decided on the Audio-Technica ATH-AD500x headset and an AntLion ModMic.
My only concern is that the headphones were described as "incredibly open". I'm worried that the sound projected from the headset will be picked up by the ModMic and feed back through to the people I am talking to.
I don't listen to audio loud, and usually keep my system audio at about 50% with any in-game audio settings lowered a bit from max. Also, if i'm just in a call talking to buddies, I generally leave the mic open and put on some music.
I am not a big audiophile (I mostly just use earbuds when I don't need a mic), and having a clear mic that isn't going to throw my game sounds/music back at the people I am talking to is more important to me than the "large sound stage" given by the open design (although I would like to try them).
TL;DR: Will the ModMic pick up and throw back the game sounds/music that is projected from the Audio-Technica ATH-AD500x headsets open design? (around 50-70% system audio, if that helps)
Thanks in advance, any feedback helps!
