Razer Kraken, Logitech G230, or the Plantronics 780 headsets all for around 80$

These are the three headsets that I have come down to that are all within my price range and available at my local Best Buy (I have a gift card)

All I really want is a PC headset that is wired.

I have never owned a Logitech product before. I have a Razer Naga Epic and love it, and I know nothing about plantronics as a company.

I'm leaning towards the Logitech G230 because it is slightly cheaper at 59.99 while the other two are 79.99


Any impressions on these products?

I have the Plantronics pair. They're decent for $80 but I wouldn't pay full retail for them.

So you wouldn't pay 80$

None of those are anything all that great. I would buy something else.

I bought Plantronics on a sale, they were $60, and they are doing really well. I had them for a month.

Well what would you recommend for 80$ or less- I obviously don't want to ape d 250$ on a headset. I spent 170ish for the turtle beach x41 and I am disappointed do to popping and cracklings. I want a wired headset that is preferably not USB

USB headsets give you better sound quality. Unless you want to buy a sound card.

Get the Plantronics 995. They're wireless, but they work great. No problems with line of sight or anything. Works at 40 feet...whether it's through a wall or not.

Try a Corsair 1500, or Roccat Kave, or Logitech G35 if you're deadset on a headset. I'd say to get some headphones and a mic. A set of Creative Aurvana Live headphones and a Labtech LGA-7330 or dealextreme clip-on should work just fine.
