I'd recommend against headsets in general, but if you had to get one on a low budget, you could certainly do worse.

I think a lot of people like headphones + standalone mics. I do too. There are a couple of reasons.

-Wider selection of headphones available to suit your needs and with some great value for money options.
-Wider selection of mics available to suit your needs. Headset mics are often not great.
-Many midrange to high-end USB headsets do their own audio-mixing. But more often than not, a cheap soundcard or sometimes even the onboard audio of the motherboard does a better job.
-You can replace or upgrade every individual component to your audio (mic, phones, card)
-You can avoid the ridiculous "gamer" style and looks that headsets tend to have.
-You can use the headphones for other things besides the PC.
-It is easy to find something more durable. I would like any headset seeing a lot of use to last as long as my Sony MDR-V6 headphones which my dad bought in the 90's somewhere. I do not think you get that kind of longevity out any headset available.

That said, headsets are kind of appealing just because it is such an easy all in one solution.
