    Re: Fnatic Gear Duel TMA-2 Modular Gaming Headset

    I've actually an Aiaiai TMA-2 lying around. Is there any way to upgrade it with a mic using the Fnatic parts, and if so, which?

    Alternatively. One could buy a cheap set of headphones and a microphone. Totally unheard of, I know, right?

    Either way, rather than some tacky "pro-gamer" crap, a decent headset (if you must) like sennheiser PC37x (massdrop, will come back up for another drop soon) or hyperX will run rings around this.

    Don't sell the Aiaiai TMA-2 short. This is actually a very good headphone. Or should I say, series of headphones, as you can configure them to your own liking. Have a look at the configurator. The "Young Guru" preset is especially nice. I seriously doubt that adding a mic on the Fnatic edition will ruin the sound quality.

    Re: Fnatic Gear Duel TMA-2 Modular Gaming Headset

    are Duel's modular capabilities just a gimmick? Well, no, not entirely. On paper having a choice of configurations makes good sense. Gearing-up for a long gaming session? Then opt for the boom mic and larger earpads for a wider soundstage and better isolation. If you'll be using the headset while on the go, the in-line cable and on-ear pads create a smaller and lighter offering.
    ...or... spend the £180 on a gaming headset and some headphones/earbuds for "on the go".
    Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes; after that, who cares?! He's a mile away and you've got his shoes!

    Actually, even head-fi didn't mind them. The S02 being the only module for speakers that isn't a bassy mess.

    A bit more hassle than I'd want. And I also think that the bits and pieces also risk being misplaced just when you need them.

    Alternatively, you can use an wired earphone that plugged into a bluetooth headset.

    Great idea, as everyone's head & ears are shaped differently
