I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on these once you've had a bit more time with them and played a few games. Been considering a new headset for a while, and my plantronics rig 400 have served me well for what I paid for them, but my chat has started crackling apparently so could be time to replace soon and really like the Arctis line...
I haven't noticed anything like crackling.
Played Titanfall 2 multiplayer with Party Chat for a few hours.
The games default audio was way too high and I couldn't hear what people in my party chat were saying. Once I turned the in game audio all the way down I got a good mix of party chat and in game audio. The chat was clear and the people on the other side could hear me clearly too.
I also played some Doom Eternal campaign, the audio again was clear.
