Good Headset for $100 and under

#1TroublemakerTMPosted 12/22/2013 12:24:49 PM
Looking for a headset with a mic since I have to wrap the wire around my head for my current headset to work (had it for a few years). Doesnt have to be a gaming headset but one where it has good durability and sound quality since I play lots of games

That sounds like a health hazard.

That's not going to be <$100, and the Zalman mic is a piece of junk that picks up so much background noise it's not even funny.

Good mic for gaming.
Does 7.1 surround sound.
Good audio quality.
$80

Great for gaming purposes. It doesn't compare to high end headphones for music listening, and if you wanted to make podcasts you'd want a better mic. But for the price, it's great for games.

zalman clip on,


Why do people think this is a good idea in any universe? Sure, yes, it works. However, as Shub said, it picks up every tiny little piece of background noise in existence, which is only a good thing if you want to lose all your friends. If you're going to recommend people get a nice pair of headphones, you should recommend a decent mic with them.

TC, I'd recommend a set of SteelSeries Siberia V2s. They're one of the best quality headsets in your price range, and you can spend way less than your budget.

Siberia V2s are pretty nice. I've got a pair, and they're ready comfortable and sound pretty decent as well.

I looked at the Corsair, Plantronics, and Logitech links provided and is there any specification I should really pay attention for or is it just for looks because after comparing them, they have minor differences but I am not sure if those minor differences can be the deciding factor. For example like the audio drivers for Logitech and Platronics is 40mm while Corsair is 50mm.
