I need a decent headphone mic combo for PC

Ideally I would
Like a combo mic (for talking in Dota) and headphones so I don't disturb my wife when jerks yell curses in dota!

Any ideas- I would like to keep the price modest if I can

What a coincidence.

Well, if you don't want your sound to bleed, you'll probably want a closed set of headphones. The Audio Technica ATH-M50s are always a solid recommendation. They don't have much for soundstage, but they're very accurate and don't bleed a whole lot. Depending on your budget, you might also consider something like Beyerdynamic DT770 for something a little pricier or Sony MDR-V6 for something on the cheaper end.

As far as mics go, the Antlion Modmic is a good choice, or the Blue Snowball if you just want a high quality desk mic.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Plantronics headsets, they're fantastic value for money and very very comfortable.

Can't complain about the sound quality, obviously they sound worse than a $200 pair of headphones but at $50~ they sound pretty decent.

This is the headset I use.

My only problem with it, is sometimes I can sound far away since the mic isn't adjustable every direction. But I like them more than the Turtle Beaches I had 2-3 years ago.

Turtle Beach PX21

They work on PC, 360, and PS3. Great sound, good mic, you have adjustable volume, bass, and chat volume. Plug it in, adjust some settings and you are good to go.

Also good if you have either console, so no need for extra mics. $70 - $90 normally. I use them and the company is really good about repairs and warranties. I can't recommend them enough.
