For the mouse go for the one Valve made, the fade one its very good and looks great aswell with its lights and all that. Really the mouse is based of what size your hand is.
My keyboard is a Corsair K70 RGB but its expensive so not sure for you.
Headset no idea.
Make sure you have a mousepad cus that makes everything smooth.
Hi there! Welcome back to the scene!
I'm a big mouse/keyboard/headset fanatic so I always like sharing my opinion on what the best peripherals are.
For a mouse you've got to first start with your grip types; palm and claw. I personally have played both and have had great mice for both options. For a palm grip, I've found a lot of enjoyment in using the FinalMouse 2016 (locked at 500hz pull, driverless) and for claw I personally use the Logitech G303 as my daily driver. I suggest looking at those two as they have great sensors. Another option is the Steelseries Rival (enjoyed it, had some weird sensor glitches) for Palm play style.
As for a keyboard it's another choice of preference; tenkeyless or conventional. If you're looking for a great tenkeyless keyboard with Cherry MX Blues, I can give you a code to get a Cooler Master Rapid i for $50. Another great tenkeyless option is the G410. I have a G910 and I love how fast the Romer G Switches actuate. For a conventional keyboard, take a look at the Cosair K95, its RGB (as well as the G410) and I've heard wonderful things about it; another option is the Logitech G910, although the keycaps for that particular keyboard are odd at first. I have also used the Steelseries Apex 800 and the Razer Blackwidow. I thought both were okay, the Apex has an odd space bar and I type a lot and the Blackwidow was "meh" all around in my book, but I would recommend the first options I gave more.
Headsets are a bit tricky; you want one that will last a while and provide good audio. I use a Logitech G430 and its okay, but there are far better options out there. The Steelseries Siberia 350 is nice and I've gotten good sound out of the Logitech G633 (but it sits oddly on my head, might just be me). The Void Wireless from Corsair is also nice, but I'm not sure if you prefer wired over wireless.
At the end of the day, I can only give you some options.
I personally use the Logitech G303, G910 and G430, just for the sake that I like the products and I only want to use one software. Both the FinalMouse and G503 are great options for Palm players (I play claw). The tenkeyless Cooler Master Rapid i is great (message me for discounted unit) as well as the conventional Corsair K70 (albeit pricy). Headset is pretty standard, I really only like Logitech and Steelseries and prefer Logitech.
TL;DR - Mouse: FinalMouse (Palm) G303 (Claw)
Keyboard: Rapid i (msg for discount)/G410 (tenkeyless units) or K70
Headset: G633 or Siberia 350
headset : siberia v3
keyboard: roccat rgb
a cheap high quality set
Headset: Sennheiser Game One
Keyboard: Corsair k65 tkl
Mouse: Zowie EC1/2-a
Headset: Sennheiser Game Zero or Hyper x Cloud 1 or 2(Usb)
Keyboard: Logitech G610
Mouse: Steel series Rival/Sensei or Zowie EC2 A
Hope you find what you're looking for :)
Shit lol was banned need 25 comments to make a thread!
This is definitely below your price range but
Headset: Logitech g450
I used to use the 300$ Astro a40s/ PC turtle beaches and switched to these once they broke, literally the same sound quality and a MUCH better mic for 240$ less
Keyboard: I'm not one for fancy keyboards anymore so I bought 6gV2 and it's the best keyboard I ever had, shits tough as a tank, liked it much better than the razer ultimate I used to have
Mouse: zowie series, I've used razer and mad catz and I can confidently say zowie feels much more comfortable than most brands imo
Mouse: personal preference, just choose one with little or no positive/negative acceleration, no cursor prediction is good too. I'm using a MS 1.1 at the moment.
Keyboard: go for a mechanical keyboard, once again, the switch is about personal preference, I like the Cherry MX red switches. Note: every membrane keyboard is equally BAD.
Headset: just don't buy anything with "5.1" or "7.1" written in its package, run away from "gaming" headphones aswell. Try good companies like Sennheiser, AKG, Shure...
Mousepad: there's no secret here, they are all the same, just a pice of cloth, stick to the one you feel you like the most.
uh buy Headphones in the 150-300€/$ Range... and not shitty GAMERLEETSUPERHEADSHOT Headsets
thank me later
I have Deathadder Chroma and i think its the best mouse ever. Its really good for my grip which i cant describe, and the sensor is flawless so far. So the Deathadder is a mouse to go. For headphones get something like cloud or razer kraken chroma
Cant go wrong with these
lol u need dac and amp for headphones
so many gamer noobs sad to see poor people
Mouse: Razer Deathadder (The best gaming mouse 10/10)
Headset: HyperX Cloud 2 (I have Razer Kraken 7.1 but I'm not too satisfied with it, it's decent but I bet HyperX is better)
Keyboard: Corsair K70/Razer BlackWidow (I would give a slight edge to k70, since it has better switches)
I'm actually surprised, that hltv guys gave you normal advices, not troll
Headset:hyperx cloud v1/v2
mouse:Steelseries rival 300
Don't buy "gaming" headphones like Hyperx, SS or other shit. It's waste of money - shit quality and overpriced. Better go with Superlux or sth like that.
For keyboard SS 6gv2 da best and mouse choose one of Zowie depending on grip.
just dont by razer and you are good
you were a 'semi-pro' in 1.6 and don't know that headphones/keyboard don't matter and mouse is a preference?
What a braindead.
G4ME ZERO/any new zowie or da chroma/keyboard doesnt matter actually, its the point which switches you prefer, backlight, tkl or full etc.
Headset: anyone of the hyerx clouds, or the Logitech g430
mouse: Is no best mouse per say. It's just whatever mouse is most comfortable to you. Unless you are talking about best sensor which is probably like fk2, deathadder, g502.
Keyboard: personally I like ducky keyboards (not just because it's an Asian company), ducky is really good, corsair is good, Logitech has some good keyboards. Basically all keyboards are the same because they all use the same switches. It's just up to you if you like it without numpad or you like lights etc.. for cs I would get red switches or brown.
Needed new headphones yesterday fast, bought the Logitech g430.
Really nice comfort but the built in usb soundcard sucked ass. I couldnt hear anything in game. So i switched to 3.5 mm plugs and it works much better.
Anyway, for the price i feel they are worth the cash.
I had a pair of Razer Kraken Pro 7.1, but i trashed them while drunk.
just go for razer da chroma and get qck heavy with it its perfect match,and for the headset choose beetwen cloud or logitech g430 :)
I had Zowie ec1-a and the mouse 1 click started to double click after 2 months of use. I dont know if its just in my case but it was bad experience. I bought Deathadder Chroma and im satisfied with it a lot, it feels great and it fits me.
For headset you should get something like Sennheiser PC 363D, and keyboard is all about preference, altho my favorite is Tesoro Durandal. Gl and welcome back
Headset: HyperX Cloud II
Mouse: Zowie EC2-A
Keyboard: Corsair K70
DeathAdder Chroma is a great mouse however could be a bit of a big mouse for some.
Best mouse is definetly the Finalmouse Scream One, same shape as deathadder kind of, very average size, fits all. Great sensor like DA.
Headset hyperx cloud 2 or any 7.1 headset.
keyboard: Ducky shine 3
And dont listen to these guys, dont buy zowie. They are old mices Da is 10x better
Sennheiser Game Zero/One depending on your environment. The open back versions have a marginally better soundstage. I use them with virtual surround from a sound blaster z and it's great.
Any mechanical keyboard really. I use a ducky shine 4 with cherry mx greens.
I recommend the G303 over anything else. Very light, arguably the best sensor on the market, drivers not required, braided cable, low click latency. Great mouse for CSGO.
for headset just get cloud/cloud2s/game zeros. keyboard doesnt really matter, if you wanna go mechanical, reds should be best for fps. I have browns, works good, but i've tried reds, they're really fast and feel good. for mouse i'd recommend zowie line. fk1/2 for claw, za11/12 for palm grip (if you prefer ambidextrous) and ec-2 for any kind of hybrid grip (ec-1 if you have above ~19cm hand)
Buy external mic
Just get deathadder chroma or Sensei, Game zero, and tesoro durandal esport edition
hey man get Steelseries Rival mouse, great for medium/large hands, as for keyboard any mechanical will work just fine, just look for the ms on it, one with fast reaction, and for headset really for me it dosent matter to be honest, i play just aswell with iphone earplugs as with my 320$ turtle beach, and my razer headset, anything with a decent sound will work
you're willing to spend more in a keyboard then a mouse?
just reading that hurt my feelings ;c
all headsets are terrible compared to what you can get for the same price via buying headphones an a mic.
headset: senheiser game zero
mouse: Zowie FK1/ ec2-a
keyboard: cm storm quickfire brown switches
I bought HyperX Cloud II before 1 week and im pretty satisfied so far
i want to give you a hint... not significantly but the shape of deathadder chroma is SLIGHTLY different than old deathadder... a little bigger, you will notice it, but still it is a great mouse
Zowie is probably the best mouse. If u have large hands such as i, the rival 300 is good. I have the rival, and the only think i dont like ist the ergonomics of it. its good size, but the feel of it isnt that good, at least for me.
Deathadder or Zowie is the ones u should buy.
For keyboard: Qpad and xtrfy makes great keyboards.
Headset: Sennheiser is quality. Or, you can buy astros, but it's hardly worth it.
Corsair keyboards are pretty solid, I have a k65 laying around somewhere, theyre built well. the k70 rgb youre set on looks like a good choice.
As far as audio, I would suggest the hyper x cloud series if you're looking for a "gaming" headset (mic is detachable, less worry about it breaking like fold up mics.) Best build quality for the price. But also, as others have stated, it would also be a good choice to get a decent pair of regular headphones (beyerdynamic, sennheiser hd, audio technica, etc) with an external mic if you get the sound card or amp for them. Truly not really a fan of the Sennheiser G4ME series as they are just repurposed HD380's with a mic, and in my opinion, look cheaper in quality because of that. Closed vs Open is really based on how much sound youre trying to drown out in the background. I prefer closed as it leaks less sound if people are around me. "Gaming" headsets are convenient as they usually come with a usb sound card attached, but know that 7.1 and all that jazz doesn't matter at all for games.
Mouse = Razer Deathadder Chroma would be nice with your RGB keyboard, but the Zowie EC series is also excellent, especially since you can physically adjust your mouse dpi/polling settings on the bottom & not have to use any drivers.
Guys i got the Corsair k70 RGB, Sennheiser GAME ZERO, and Deathadder Chroma. Pretty satisfied with all of them. Thank you for your opinions, you've been all helpful :)
Hyper X Revolver (Headset)
Zowie ZA12, ZA11 or ZA13 depending on your Handsize (Mouse)
CM Storm Quickfire Ultimate (Keyboard)
Headset : Sennheiser Game Zéro/HyperX Cloud
Keyboard: Anything that has MX Cherry
Mouse : DeathAdder Chroma / SS Rival 300/ Any Zowie.
Sennheiser do actually have the best
Headset Sennheiser Game Zero
Mouse Zowie FK1
Keyboard Any doesn't really matter but I'd recommend any Logitech G Series kb.
Keyboard: Corsair Strafe RGB
Mouse: Logitech g502
Headset: Kingston HyperX Coud2
- I'd advise anyone these three, had them for a year or so and never had any trouble with any of em. (+reasonable prizes)
I already bought the Corsair k70 RGB, DA Chroma and Sennheiser Game Zero like 3-4 days ago guys, thanks for your suggestions though.
I would suggest this setup to everyone of you, they are really great, especially the mouse.
Sennheiser GAME ZERO
a4tech bloody mouse
Zowie FK/EC (FK is for both hands EC isnt, they hv different size)
Corsair K65(K70 if u need numpad)
HyperX Cloud (1,2,core all great headset at cheap price)
HyperX Cloud II
best mouse & headset IMO for cs
HyperX Cloud 1
The cloud 1 just got marked down and the cloud 2 is buggy and it's surround sound which is useless for CSGO, therefore it's more money for less of an experience.
Anything Zowie/SteelSeries Rival 300
Zowie is super good and well known to be a world class mouse, Steelseries is just an old name that's very trusted in the ESports community.
Why would you get anything else?
Just realized you found a pair of equipment already, I got rekt.
I wouldn't recommend getting a headset and just getting headphones and a mic separately, the "gaming" headsets are always overpriced. You get way better sound and certainly mic quality from separate headphones and a mic.
If you insist on getting headphones I always heard the Cloud II's were pretty good. Maybe the newer Cloud Revolver lives up to that name.
whatever you end up getting, don't get Razer shit. they're just too bad.
as far as recommending hardware, mouse -> get a Logitech G402 (it's basically the same shape as the G400, but with added features and what not), or a Zowie. do not get gaming headsets, get a good pair of headphones and get a separate microphone. as for the keyboard, get what you want, its usually the peripheral that has the least impact in cs... If you can get your hands on one, get the CM Storm QuickFire or something similar.
Headset: AKG 240
Keyboard: 5$ Chicony mech keyboard with ALPS switches and NKRO
Mouse: Microsoft Intelli 1.1A
Total setup cost is less than 50$, wouldn't switch over anything, even if I was sponsored by SS/Razer/Zowie
Hello. I opt for headphones cs go. The choice is between Kingston HyperX Cloud and SENNHEISER PC151. Price HyperX Cloud $ 90, the price is $ 50 PC151. Should I pay extra for HyperX Cloud?
headset - HyperX Cloud II and there is literally nothing I can complain about. Not a single thing yet and I am being completely honest. I have been treating them like shit cause I am a dickhead, and they still work like a charm for more than a year now. Perfect sound, comfortable like a pillow.
the mouse - Razer Deathadder Chroma - yeah, I know, I got brand-baited and bought a Razer. There seems to be a lot of people having issues with Razer equipment but the mouse has been working with no problems at all for about a year and a half now. The rubber thingy on its side is super nice and the mouse does not slip at all. It is comfortable to use for hours straight and fits my hand perfectly. The lighting is a nice little bonus. I will buy another one after this one dies since I am really really satisfied with it.
The keyboard and the mousepad are a different story. I bought a Razer Blackwidow Chroma half a year ago, and it already does weird things, like when I press lets say D letter, it writes "DD". Doesn't happen every time, but it happens very very often. E, D, K, and U letters the most - which doesnt make much sense to me either, why just those. Its a nice keyboard and stuff, but this really makes me mad sometimes. The bad thing is shops in my country take ages to replace it, and most of the time they even don't. And I really don't want to spend a month waiting for a fix which then doesn't come. Will buy some mechanical Logitech next time, I guess.
The mousepad I have not much to say about, I use Razer Goliathus Large Speed - its just slippery, moves no matter what surface you put it on and is not really comfortable as your hand slides on it when moving your mouse. Will get a Steelseries QCK soon.
Optical mouse FTW, find one who fits ur hand
Mechanical keyboard with the switches you prefer and a surround headset is mandatory
senn g4meones, zowie fk1-2 and corsair mech kb's easy choice.
Razer kraken chroma
i also decided to buy a deathadder chroma today, and its the best mouse ive ever had, simply amazing.
mx518 (mouse button broke after ~6 years)
cm storm alcor (mousebutton broke after less than a year..)
zowie ZA13 (didnt like shape & scroll-wheel)
DA chroma is perfect
headset: definitely Sennheiser g4me zero or sennheiser g4me one
or if you want cheaper one sennheiser PC 330
Keyboard: Razer Blackwidow
Mouse: Razer Naga
Headset: steelseries Siberia prism
Tho total of like 500euro
zowie (fk 1,2) mouse
Fnatic Gear Keyboard !!
Headphones - hyperX cloud II
Keyboard - i like the corsair vengeance K70
Mouse - razer deathadder chroma, finalmouse 2016, logitech g502
2001 IBM mouse and a Xbox 360 headset.
Mouse - Deathadder Chroma
Headset - Logitech G430
Keyboard - pretty much any steel series / corsair mechanical keyboard. I have a black widow ultimate but would not recommend it because 4-5 of
my keys will randomly double tap and it's such a nuisance.
Mouse - DA Chroma
Keyboard - BW Chroma
Headset - Kraken Chroma
Mouse - Rapoo V300
Keyboard - SteelSeries 6Gv2
Headset - Sennheiser PC 151
For the mouse i would use a zowie ec1-a for larger hands or a ec2-a for normal hands:D in my view zowie got the best mice atm. I just have got a rival and now i swapped to a ec2-a and i can definetly tell u that it's way better than the rival.
Keyboard i got a 6gv2 from steelseries. Nothing special, simple mechanical keyboard.
Headset i got the steelseries 9h which is very good in my view because of the software, sound is great and the mic is great too:)
I'd suggest the Final Mouse brand as I currently use the Final mouse 2015 and have done for ages and it still works great
Gskill Ripjaws mechanical
Hyperx cloud two is the best headset imo. Quality is great, mic is near perfect (doesn't have static or record background noise) and is super comfortable.
Final mouse is the best mouse I've ever had. I've had the Razer death adder, rather nags, and many others and the final mouse has been the most comfortable and best so far
People are gonna hate me for this but I love my Razer black widow stealth tourney edition. It makes less noise and takes less pressure to press and it doesn't have a keypad which gives me more space for my mousepad and such.
The new HyperX Revolver headsets are pretty awesome and good quality
I don't understand why people invest 100$ into a keyboard, I got an old simple one, it's more than 10 years old and still working fine
buying gaming headsets in 2016
Headset: Astro A40 TR with mixAmp
Mouse: DA Chroma
Keyboard: Corsair K70 RGB
Got me to GE in 3 hours. Ez pz.
Best headset: ADG1
Best for your budget:
1.ATH-AD700(X) + modmic (open)
2. HD598 + modmic (open)
3. Game One (open)
4. Game Zero (closed)
Mouse: Preference, I'd look into Zowie EC, ZA and FK series
Keyboard: Purely preference
Buy a pair of good headphones and either a modmic or a simple usb desktop mic. The quality of your sound will be way higher. Personally I use Sony MDR-100AP, amazing quality. You'll hear details in music and games youve never heard before.
What gear u should get ? Aimlock with offset is quite on top
Cloud 1 or 2
K70 or ss 6gv2
Zowie fk series or za series.
for headset HyperX Cloud II .The best.
The new deathadder elite is a really great mouse especially for csgo
headset - smth from hyperx
mouse - zowie ec2/1-a, fk13, razer deathadder, steelseries rival/kana
keyboard - razer cynosa pro
There is no such thing as "best mouse" for CS. There is such a thing as "best mouse for you when playing CS".
We all have different hands, and we all have different ways of holding onto the mouse.
And as for keyboards. My mechanical one died, and I am back on standard keyboard. I fucking love the silence, missed it a ton. I now realize that the advantage of mechanical keyboards is overrated as fuck.
Headset: HyperX Cloud II
Keyboard: Corsair K65 Mechanical Keyboard (Cherry MX Red)
Mouse: Preference really, I like the Steelseries Rival 300 and the Razer Deathadder. Finalmouse and Zowies are also pretty good.
Hyper-x Cloud 2 are awesome and worth the price, month old and no problems. Steelseries rival 300 is good and worth the price, but I've heard that EC1A or EC2A has a better sensor or somthn.
keyboard and headset don't matter that much.
All that matters, is a mouse with 3310 or 3360/3366 sensor. Zowie ec2-a seems to be the most used one by pro players. And buy a large mousepad.
If you have the money consider buying a 144hz monitor too.
Hyperx cloud 2 headset
Corsair strafe keyboard
Good to go
My current setup is;
Rival 700 - Very stable mouse that really never messes up and provides a lot of features and you can even edit options without opening up a program. Very good for palm grip and claw grip, would recommend.
Kraken 7.1 - A pretty nice headphones maybe not specifically for Counter Strike but they work fine and sound is really nice.
I use a shitty wireless keyboard so I don't know.
