Any good headsets for $40?

Recommended Posts

My current headphones are breaking down, and my mic picks up my keyboard... so yeah.

I'm hoping to find a headset around $40. I would be more comfortable with spending a max of $50, but I will consider suggestions a little over that.
Mostly interested in something that won't pick up my keyboard or mouse clicks.

I have an ancient like 5 year old Logitech headset that wraps around the back of the head instead of the top & it's pretty perfect. It's old enough that they don't even have it on their website anymore..they were probably cheap $10 ones :D

I'd recommend Creative headsets, they have great sound quality. I prefer USB headsets (they are driver driven and does not depend on my shitty Realtek soundcard) than those 3.5mm jack unless you have a really great soundcard.

I'm using CM storm Sirus 5.1 headset but it will cost over $100 :(

Oh man, it would be really awesome if I could still get a hold of those.

Also any word about them picking up keyboard/mouse noises? That's my main concern.

 

Found these too:

No problem with those noises, I can't even hear my friends speaking at me :D

If your headset doesn't come with any driver installation disc (the second link you provided), I recommend you this sound enhancing software

My Sirus headset sound quality isn't on par with Creative's without the sound enhancer but with this software it makes listening to music and gaming a pleasure!

My prev. headset was Fatal1ty USB Gaming Headset HS-1000, your third link is a 3.5mm jack headset.

Here's a tip: Invest $100 and get a headset that is of good quality, and will last you years to come. I've bought multiple headsets for $50 before and they've all broken within a year (I take care of them, the quality just goes out the window). So I decided to not cheap out and buy a Corsair Vengeance 1500, which costed me about $100 at the time. Got it two years ago, it still kicks ass.
