After seeing two people recommend the G430 I have to jump in and say avoid these like the plague. I used to have a G35 until the microphone broke and the leather perished, but now I sincerely regret buying another Logitech pair. I totally forgot how their drivers and Game Centre software is completely broken. There's a significant bug with their drivers which makes one ear louder than the other, due to the fake software 7.1 they use confusing Windows. It took me months of tweaking to fix it with the G35s and then it was back with the G430s as soon as I started using them, and I can't replicate the fix.

The software EQ used to be the only saving grace of the headset too, as by default they are way too quiet. You used to be able to crank all the dials up to get a reasonable volume from them, but a software update a couple of years ago made it so that turning up one range on the EQ turns down everything else an equal amount, so no more audio boost.

If you are planning on using the microphone, don't bother. It has really bad software noise gate that is so slow to activate that the first syllable of each sentence you say is not recorded, because it will still have muted your mic. The software issues are so bad at this point I'm forced to just use the headset plugged in via the 3.5mm jack to avoid it.

Just buy a nice pair of Sennheisers or actual headphones (which it seems like you're planning to do) - I know for sure I'm never touching a gaming headset again.

Huh. Weird. I have none of these issues. I use the headset for work as well (remote tech support by phone) and I don't recognize the noise gate issue. Ah well, guess it's good for OP to know it doesn't have a spotless track record. If it was just a software issue it might've been fixed by now.

I use the PS4 media player and just download the GB content to an external HDD hooked up to my router.

It's a 'meh' solution to be sure but since my PS4 is on like, all the time it works for me. I'd rather have an app though. I had content run through PS4's web browser ONCE, but I just can't seem to get it going again. All I get is a black screen.

I just purchased some Logitech G430's on a whim and I'm pretty happy with them so far. Battlefield 4 sounds amazing.

I wanted to recommend these as well. I'm no audiophile by any means but I likes what I likes. The software 7.1 audio gives the audio a very spacious quality and the bass is nice and full. The software also includes a software EQ which I didn't really mess with.

Before this headset I had a Roccat Kave. It actually had physical 5.1 speakers and seperate volume sliders for each channel. When I bought those, like, 4 years ago(?) they ran me €150,-. Also a very good headset, but maybe a tad too heavy? There's not much padding on the top, which the G430 does have (like those gel mouse mats).

Hope this helps.

Why don't you go to his page and ask him? I doubt the GB forums is the right place.

There's a quick match mode which, so far that I've played, has been full of quiet players just clicking around making the best of it. No-one was yelling (apart from one whiner after we lost a match but eh!) and I had a lot of fun playing the game. Matches lasted around 20, 25 minutes. You're not allowed to go into the "big leagues" until you own 10 heroes and you're a specific level. That could possibly mean you won't run into the more fanatic players until you get over that threshold, which is completely up to you.

I had fun and felt no obligation to "be the best or GTFO". This is coming from someone who gets anxious looking at the other MOBA's or any other form of "Team Deathmatch" game.

I'm sitting here thinking about how they'd do DLC. Like, are they gonna rehire those band members for every piece of DLC they do? How about the extra's in the audience? The venue? This entire setup will kinda destroy the customisability of previous GH games, right up where I don't even think you'd be able to name your band and customize the band's logo.

The guitar really looks interesting, but man... The technical limitations of doing full FMV bum me out, let alone the acting.

They say that for DLC, it's just good to be the music video. So it's basically SingStar Guitar... yeah! Remember SingStar Guitar?

Just the original music video? Thus killing the concept that the base game will have? Kinda proves my point. What a waste XD Here's hoping Rock Band stays closer to the previous incarnations.
