    There are so many good mice to choose from. Read up on Mionix, Steelseries, Zowie. Even brands like Roccat, Razer and Cooler Master have some good models. Read up on perfect/flawless sensors if you want to buy a good mouse.

    I'm rocking a Mionix Naos 7000 and I love it, although I wish it was even bigger.

    Try to get in touch with Logitech's customer service.
    You might get a new mouse :3

    Seconding this. Got a G700s a while back and it's the only mouse I've found good enough that I prefer it to the old MX518.

    From my experience (I feel I should bold this so you don't go full Overspark on me again ), choosing a mouse is a very personal thing. I own literally a lapful of mice (SS, Razer, Logitech) and I keep finding out that whilst I do have a favourite (G700), I'm still in love with the comfy feeling of the Xai, with the friendly shape of the Mamba, I even keep using the old G9 at times.

    It's a lot about what you owned for a long time and grown accustomed to and also new features and sensors can sway it one way or the other. I personally don't find it that critical to have precisely zero acceleration and I can get away with using some of them wirelessly, but overall it's still a deeply personal choice. Hence my recommendation with the G700/G700S, which imho have the closest resemblance to the MX1000 (weight, shape, button placement, wireless capabilities, general feel of the moving cursor).

    Couldn't agree more this time.

    Even on the perfect sensor bit not being a hard requirement, however I do feel that brands that care enough to use perfect sensors generally make better quality products.

    bought a logitech g502



    found i had to unbind most of the buttons because they were too sensitive and too easily nudged. for example there's 2 buttons (default bound to dpi+/-) that sit alongside mouse1 and form a contiguous surface with it. so if your finger strays at all on mouse1 suddenly dpi switch. not exactly great for fps. of course you can rebind, but i haven't been able to think of any function i'd want as an option that could be accidentally enabled.

    mouse wheel has a lovely mechanical feel to it, with a button that allows it to freewheel that i'm actually a little bit addicted to :3

    i also find it causes my hand to cramp up playing fps games. on the left side there's a nice ridge for the thumb and the mouse has a good height to it and is comfortable. the right side of the mouse is significantly lower though, and i find my ring finger doesn't rest naturally either on top or on the side, so always has to strain to grip. people hold their mouse in different ways ofc, but i'd suggest for anyone that has normal sized hands who 'grips' a mouse (rather than rest on it or whatever), then the logitech g502 will not suit you.

    everything else is good though, feels solid and good quality, software is fine, cord is good etc etc.

    thought worth sharing as it's a relatively expensive mouse to be buying and then find out you don't like it.

    I am so far behind the times on headsets it's ridiculous.

    My trusty Siberias are starting to lose the coating on their cups and are thus becoming very uncomfortable for long sessions.

    What are people rocking these days? I don't really want a software surround implementation as I've got a solid soundcard (I know, soundcardfag), but anything designed to work with a surround card would be fine.

    Went for the G900 and found it to be the best mouse I've had.

    I do a combination of normal headphones and a desk mic. You can also do clip on mic.

    My setup as well though the mic is a shitty webcam used for that. I plan to buy a proper mic, most likely a proper condenser mic and USB audio interface, but only because I need/want an interface for school but the school will most likely not be able to afford that. Although I'd prefer not to spend my own money on that.

    I run my Teufel headphones through a Pro-ject Head Box S headphone amp. That was quite an improvement. YMMV considering you have a proper soundcard.

    Back from a project and im again on my trusty (somewhat) laptop and a shitty logitech travel mouse. Ordered a MX Master (the 1st one because lol who needs 4999 DPI). Its great. I wanted something a bit more ergonomic to ease wrist ache and stuff but also still looks professional (no vertical pe*** mice pls).

    The surface keyboard is my perfect keyboard.

    Even at £90, I've just bought a second one for work.

    If you prefer laptop style keys on a low profile board with great build quality.... I highly recommend it

    So my headphones for home use broke.

    I'm eyeing Beyerdynamic's 880 or 990 as I'd prefer to stay sub €200.

    They'll be run at the computer through a pro-ject head box headphone amp or at the Yamaha stereo amp.

    Any super obvious alternatives I'm missing?

    Also antlion modmic or a blue snowball for microphone duty? Not going to do any singing recording but may actually record dialog for school.

    My go to recommendation is Roland RH-200's

    Do keep in mind they are monitor headphones which means they have a very flat sound profile; meaning they produce sound accurate to the source, without jacked up bass & highs that has no reason being there that is so common to most headphones. If you are looking to record these are what you should be getting, they're the industry standard for a reason. If you want to spend a bit more you can splurg for the RH-300's which range 10hz to 25khz instead of 20hz to 20khz

    Flat reproduction is nice, my current broken ones are a bit too bassy for my liking anyway.

    I'm not going to do serious recording so studio monitor quality is not the goal.

    My far more important question is whether I should get a Blue Snowball or a add on mic? Dialog recording won't be a major thing, it's mostly going to be voice comms.
