ehh, over the years, I've found bump slightly less convenient to type.


same amount of letters, and i can type bump with one hand. Your arugment is invalid.

The Superlux HD 668B is good. It also has a detachable cord, so if it gets yanked it will just get pulled out as opposed to the connection being loosened.

The AntLion ModMic is a good attachable mic.

Headsets are usually a bad combo because they're an all-or-nothing deal. The headphones might suck, but the mic might be good and vice versa. Similarly, if something goes wrong with the headphones or the mic, then the entire thing is pretty much useless (unless you feel like salvaging parts, but it's cheaper and easier to do that with separated headphones and mics).

I would have recommended a desktop mic (better quality and it won't matter if the pets jump on you, unless they also jump on the desk), but if you're regularly interrupted by people IRL then it might not be a good idea.

Also, stereo headphones > "surround sound" "gaming" headphones. Good stereo headphones with the proper setup can sound amazing. I noticed that in the Customer Image Gallery on Amazon for the Superlux HD 668B someone mentioned that they used these two devices with the headphones:

http://www.amazon.com/Behringer-HA400-4-Channel-Stereo-Headphone/dp/B000KIPT30
Those might be worth checking out.

I have no idea what either of those do, but for gaming, a cheap soundcard (Xonar DG/DGX) will be able to supply Dolby Headphone (virtual surround) and will make them sound great (opinions will vary).

ehh if im typing with one hand, bump is the obvious choice. But poke rolls off the hands a bit better when you have two of them available.

I'd not recommend anything Behringer. In addition, unless you're actually producing music, you'd be better served by getting something like a Xonar. The converters and amplifiers on cheap audio interfaces suck hard.

Steelseries Siberia V2. Nice sound quality, right around your price point, and come with a pull out mic.
The CS: Go and DOTA 2 models are really nice as well. (A little bit more pricey)

They also make a Diablo III model which is pretty much the same but has LEDs and is USB powered.


It has a decent mic and is insanely comfy, but the sound quality is meh. Overpowering bass with crappy mids and almost non existent treble.

I like overpowering bass... maybe that's why I like them so much haha
