Hi all ...

I've been playing with you on your open world events.... I was in Gaiscioch when you were active on Rift a couple of years ago and stayed when you left. I've been invited back, but hesitate only because I have a 4 person guild we've built to lvl 24 with 5 bank slots...and really only 2 of us play these days. Anyway, I'm considering moving Elaenna my mage (EST TIme) to Gaiscioch again... but need to hear from my friend who plays PST.... we don't see each other much... lol.

 

Anyway, I have just broken my headset, so when logged into Discord I can hear you all. I never got my "mic" to work and found out that it was broken as I attempted to use it on different areas and it didn't work. Anyway, I just broke the headset part. I'm on SSN, so limited funds though my sweet husband said to get whatever I need.   I try to look around the web and hope to find something under $40. Any good suggestions here? It doesn't "have" to be wireless, I only had someone txt me that wireless is good since I can't break the plug if I get up and move around to another room. lol....

 

Thank you for any help and suggestions... hugs to you all.

Elaenna / Ellette - @Faeblight

Hi Elaenna!   I had the same question a few months back :)

I ended up getting a Logitech - unfortunately I can't remember which model and don't see it written anywhere.  Pretty sure it was under $40.  Not much help - sorry!

Welcome back!!

Check Amazon.  Can set your filters, to sort out by price, type, etc.

If you need a starting point for search ideas on Amazon, I came across this in an IGN Deals email:  https://www.amazon.com/Sades-Updated-Headphone-Isolation-Microphone/dp/B01N7APYAQ?ascsubtag=48768fa3-e464-4112-a9b9-20ccc060c873&tag=igndealsemail2-20

These are the cans I use every day.  They are wired, but have a nice chunky, easy to find volume control on the wire.  The wire is cloth wrapped and long.  There is a good bass boost built in and the mic sounds very good.  They are over the ear, and the pads are very comfortable.  I have a large head and the adjustments fit very nice.  They have a good solid feel to them and I love the red glow!  Plus, right now they are 39.99!

hmmm by looking what you guys use as a headset, I'm thinking I have gone little bit overboard as usual :) 

 

Well I don't know....

Ok the headset did arrive today.. Yippee ;)

However, the headset part sounds great. (and the headset pieces are large enough to cover my ears with so far no pressing into my earrings or glasses) The mic part when 'on' sounds like I'm whispering and I can only turn it off and on with a switch on the cable line.

I want to use PPT when in Discord but am scared I will still have an open mic unless I physically use the switch on the cable and am to scared to try it without knowing.

So, if I have the mic set to "on" when I log into Discord and set the PPT to a keybind... will the mic be open all the time or only when I push to talk?

I don't want to have to be breathing heavy into everyone's ears or you hearing my hubby hollering "you need more water?.... want a snack"?... lol.

Thanks for all the help.

OK, I took my life in my hands and tested out my mic... got some great help from GMAFog... and seems like my mic will work great when I'm Rifting with you all.

Thanks for all the advice, and all the help.... if you see me or Ellette <Random Acts of Kindness> in game don't hesitate to ask us for help at any time.

This group has bared with me, even though my mic acted poorly at first. I could here them. Now that I believe its fix have come down with pnueomonia and haven't spken.

 

 

Just tell them what the issue is and they will be fine until yo get it fixed. /they want great ppl to attend, that can help us all grow. If that's you they'll wait.
