    I was thinking of getting a better microphone.. HOWEVER, I dont want a microphone like blue snowball or blue yeti.
    I prefer headset with microphone. I know those wont be as SUPERIOR quality as blue yeti.. but I like to hear the game sound through the headset and speak through that same mic.

    Just my preference..

    what headsets would you guys suggest?
    No money at the moment, but I am willing to spend around £70

    (for youtube by the way)

    Really I would recommend getting a Yeti, but seeing how you don't want to...

    Logitech makes some ok headsets, for what you want to do the Logitech G930 would suffice. They're a little over £70, but I'm sure you could find some around online that are about that price.

    ohh those wireless ones.
    I heard a lot of bad things about the sound quality of the microphone.

    I've heard mixed reviews, some say you just need to change the quality settings in windows Sound options, others say they can't...

    IIRC the Logitech G35's were pretty much just wired g930's, so you could also try those as well (not sure on prices for those)

    to be honest with you, from what I have heard and see, for the price you pay, you really dont get any decent microphone recording from those logitech ones.

    I wouldn't trust headsets because they are like asking to an Ultrabook to play games. However, if you really want a headset, my Master Race cousin got a pair of SteelSeries 7H and he said they are cool.
