After like 8 years my Cheap Microsoft USB headset is finally dying. Any recommendations for a replacement? USB is a plus but not required. Just want something durable with a decent mic. Budget up to $100 but hopefully closer to $50

A lot of people seem to do this. Personally I think that to really enjoy a high end PC, the monitor and peripherals play a big role as well. Since the mouse and keyboard are the way you interact with this $1000+ machine you just put together, it makes sense to put some thought into them. When it comes to sound, the differences in quality among headphones/headsets/speakers are arguably even more noticeable compared to something like a keyboard.

That said, I think that you can buy something kind of decent for 100 bucks. Personally I went for headphones of about that price, and soundcard, and a separate mic. I prefer this set up, because there are so many more options to choose from, it is still quite affordable, and if the headphone breaks I do not have to replace it with an expensive new USB headphone that does its own audioprocessing etc. The soundcard and mic also last a very, very long time. I wont have to replace those any time soon, which may make it the best investment in the long run.

Recently picked up the Steelseries 7h and love it. I'd recommend that. Comes in a USB version too if you want. Couldn't vouch for its durability, but my Siberia V2s lasted a couple of years and were really killed by me being careless with them.
Fan of metal? Don't mind covers? Check out my youtube and give me some feedback
