Gaming headset for under $100 - Page 3

post #21 of 36
Gamecom looks nice. I like that the mic actually folds into it.

I've got one of these now and it's pretty great. Microphone is quality compared to some of the one's I've encountered.

Got a Carcharias and couldn't be happier. I have been told many times that my mic sounds awesome and clear. It's comfortable and light also sound is great too.

The quality of the carcharias is not very good either. I kept a cheap logitech headset for about 2 years, my first carcharias went in about a year and a family member had theirs go out after about a year as well.

I've been using the Creative Fatal1ty headset for quite some time now, and I love it. I'd recommend you check it out, but it is nearly half your budget so you might want something better.

Here is a link if you're OK with a $50 headset.

Just treat the cord well, it's weak at some parts like where it meets the inline controls and the headset.

I've got the Gamecom 777. Pretty comphy and the fold out mic is nice. Solid build, Padding on the top. Adjustments are made with the telescoping frame so no giant loop over your head. Mic is also telescoping you can get it in the right spot. The usb surround sound works it just requires a usb port for the adapter. Inline audio control is nifty but somewhat annoying and bulky when you don't need it. The cable could be a few feet longer in my option. I also sometimes wear my glasses at the computer and eventually I can feel them to start digging into the side of my head. But I suppose that would be the same for all headsets.

But all that said I can't complain cause the price is decent.

Wow...so many to choose from! I also am considering the creative one, carcharias (still), and the gamecom 777.

try the creative fatality it's pretty inexpensive and it works pretty well from what others tell me. Only bad thing is sometimes when I'm playing music people can hear it from the earphones to the mic but I'm sure they like whatever i'm jamming to anyway LOL

I really like the Corsair HS1's because they can go on sale for $50 I have a set and I wear it for 8 hours a day at times when I have no life. Super comfy and no headaches.

The analog one is about $10 cheaper too, so if you have a good sounds card that's a plus and if you don't, the HS1 has a USB style headset with built in drivers.
