Headset for PC gaming?

I have an old Sennheiser set that I have used for years, but I was thinking about getting a new headset since they have probably gotten a lot better and more comfortable. Any recommendations? I don't want to spend a fortune, but I'd like a decent pair that will last.

i got a pair of the earforce x11's last year for christmas - they aren't amazing sound quality, but they are pretty decent and relatively cheap.

Personally, I have always gone with a pretty cheap desktop mic, like $30, then then a decent set of headphones, around $100 - $150.

It's always worked for me, people say I sound fine on vent, and then i still have good quality headphones.

Yeah, I was just hoping to get a headset with a mic attached to keep clutter to a minimum. I don't have a great deal of desk space, so the less I have on it the better.

I bought the Logitech G930s and really enjoy them. The 7.1 surround is gimmicky software emulation from Dolby, so I usually keep them on stereo. The mic is high quality and the stereo sounds great. There have been a couple of games where the 7.1 sounded really good though.

Probably really nice but I think that's more than I'd want to spend.

I thought 80 bucks was a lot too. But I'm glad I got them.

that is for the PC 350 headset

The HD280 is around $75 or so (and they are just headphones, no mic).


Maybe you should set a budget. Never tried them but Corsair has some new model headsets out that are reasonably priced.

Yeah I didn't realize I hadn't mentioned a price range. I'd like to keep it under $100 for sure, probably closer to $75 or less if I could.
