    Hey :)

    First of all, the mic quality doesnt have to be amazing. I have blue snowball for recording. But the headset mic will be used with games like League of Legends and PC Minecraft.



    I bought this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00F96KMT4?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00


    I didnt do much research before buying it. But GOD IT IS AWFUL!
    The mic records like someone is constantly playing violin at the back. And no I didnt have a defective one. Apparently there is some "grounding" issues with that mic, according to google search at least.

    The sound quality is great but 1% sounds like 100%. I had to use custom sound eq software to suppress that. I MEAN COME ON! REALLY? Had enough of that, so I returned it.

    I dont think I want USB headset anymore after the shit I went through with the Raptor HS40.

    Anyway please leave suggestions :) I guess my budget is £50/$80. Willing to compromise a little.

    Roccat make some good headsets. I have a Kave 5.1 headset, it's quite heavy (due to having 3 speakers on each side) but is quite comfortable to wear and both the mic and audio quality is good. They make a stereo version of it too, which is lighter and should be more comfortable to wear over time.
