I am looking for a new gaming headset. I have the turtle beach x41 wireless and do not like them. Them pop and crackle constantly. I used them for console gaming.

I want a wired headset for use on the pc. I want it to be under 100$. I want a built in mic for my dota 2 playing.

I'm looking at
Logitech G230- 60$
Plantronics 380- 60$
Mythlogic-Pollux 1612, Clevo P150em, i7-3720QM, 2GB GTX 680m, 16g DDR3, 128 MSata drive, 750 7200rpm HDD

Pay a little extra($11ish) and get these

Good sound, haven't heard any crackling or static. Mic is decent. Still comfortable after long hours.

I used to own a Gamecom 377; horrible sound. I didn't notice at the time but eventually when I switched to something that had a tiny bit better audio; it made my Gamecom's sound like dog ****. The mic was also bad.

I suggest some good headphones ie superlux 668b, samson 850 or something someone else will probably reccommend.

If you just want voice communication without buying a separate mic from the headphone I'd suggest the Microsoft lifechat lx-3000's. They're dirt cheap and has what you're looking for.

Have you considered an attachable mic? You could use pretty much any pair of headphones you want with a standalone mic, which usually means better audio going in and going out.

Here's an example:
http://www.amazon.com/JVC-HARX900-High-Grade-Full-Size-Headphone/dp/B0013P3ZOE
http://www.modmic.com/collections/frontpage/products/modmic

The mic is really easy to attach and sounds great. There's also a ModMic 3.0, but it might not work with whatever sound setup you have. You'll have to do some research if you're interested in the 3.0.
Also, those headphones are just a popular pair on Amazon that I picked to pair with the ModMic and fit under $100 total.
