Computer Headphones

Having used headphones for computer gaming a fair bit, I thought I might share about my current headset, as it will be a long time before I need or want to get another one. Currently, I have a David Clark Model H-PC Headset. David Clark is famous for their aviation headphones providing all manner of headphones for airplanes and helicopters. And those can be some noisy environments. My previous headphones seemed to not last long (xBox one headeset), or not work very well (Turtle Beach Wireless). I have an small external USB audio card that I plug the headphones into that eliminates any kind of feedback loop, as it is powered over USB, and the external nature means it is outside of the computer case where cables are likely to endure induction whine. These are phenomenal. I love them.
