Looking to buy a headset

What's the best kind of headset I can get for around 60-70$? I'd use it for gaming mostly since I can't play my speakers too loud. Thanks!

Do you actually need the mic attached, or do you just need headphones?

Forgot to mention that I would like a mic attached. Sorry!

it's barely dota2 branded but you get a dota 2 item, battlefury, which is worth ~40keys.

I enjoy dota 2 honestly, but I never understood how keys worked

The headset comes with an item that is currently trading for 40 keys (1 key = ~$2). You could trade it away and get about $70-80 in Steam credit on the Steam Market, making the headset almost free (assuming you plan on buying more games off Steam eventually).

I would make sure the code is still valid and working in Dota2 before going this route.

*I suppose I should edit in that keys are used to open chests and are used at the base currency in Dota2 and TF2. Different keys are sometimes needed for different chests.
