    Well, as the name suggests, I'm looking for a cheap gaming headset.

    Preferably, it would have surround sound and a reasonably good microphone. A good build quality would be great as well.

    When I say cheap, well, I mean it. No more than $30-35 (on eBay). $50 RRP is okay.

    Wired Turtlebeach sets seem to be within your price range, have a look at those.

    I've heard good things about the X-12, but I suggest that you read up on them before you make a decision. I've never been a huge headset fan but that brand I do know. ;)

    They are normally 85-110 dollars(60$ system specific), but I have a promo code I'm willing to give you(and anyone who wants afterglow), which gives you 15% off.

    I bought the turtle beach XLa set a while back for what little gaming I do online. Don't even know if they're surround sound or just stereo but they do the trick. I think I bought them new for like $25.

    Think I just fell in love :P

    15% of 90 is... 77. Hmmm. Good price.

    EDIT: Anyone know if there is one of http://www.afterglowgaming.com/products/9928GR/afterglow-universal-wired-headset-green <- those in green?
