    My headset is beat to hell. Does anyone recommend a good bang for your buck headset, MIC needed on it.

    Thanks!

    I have to update my signature but my CPU is 6600k and my mobo is gigabyte gaming 3 1151

    Thanks!

    How are you liking the g930?

    I have a few pairs which are banging but they struggle really hard in heavy WiFi environments.

    After going through a few super cheap sets, thinking she didn't need anything > $25 (not true, to say the least), finally broke down and got my daughter the HyperX Cloud. Didn't want to shell out the extra ~$30 for the Cloud II, which are supposed to be among the best in that price point. They're pretty awesome for the price.

    If you are on a tight budget I agree with mep916, the Cloud 2 headsets are amazing. If not then I can recommend the corsair void headset as they are very comfortable to wear for long periods of time and they sound great!

    Corsair Vengeance 2100 and Raptor H40 for me.
    Before I only had Steelseries Siberias, but wanted something different.
    The Vengeance is very comfortable, but my big ears are a little too big for the Raptor. But in CSGO I can hear footsteps much more clearly with the Raptor.
    Only heard good things about the Void as well.

    Normally, I wouldn't recommend people getting a "Gaming" headset, for a couple of reasons.

    1. Way too overprice for the audio quality you get.
    2. The mic on those things are generally trash.

    What I tell people is to get something that is modular. Depending on your budget, you'd want to get a pair of over-ear headphones that comes with a detachable cable. Then, grab a microphone that just sits on your desk. If you prefer it to be mounted on your headphones, grab Antlion's Mod Mic.

    My reasoning to this approach is the cost of replacement of items that have "wear and tear" would be significantly lower in the long run. The one thing I notice is the audio cable is usually the first thing that breaks on you. If you have a headset that has a detachable cable, that's like a $10-15 replacement. Your mic dies? $30 replacement and NOT grabbing a new gaming headset which would be easily double or triple those costs.
