Well I bought a headset, purely for the microphone.

I bought the Turtle Beach X12. It's high quality, sturdy, sounds very good. It has good sound range, and the microphone works very well.

You know, this is quite rude. If you had read the thread you linked, you would know why I am asking and not reading that thread.

You'll come across people like that from time to time.

Golly, you should see how many people are rude to me liking MLP. It's quite entertaining in a way, seeing how immature some people can behave.

I recently purchased Razer's Electra headset and am quite pleased. I wanted a dual purpose "mp3"/gaming headphones. The bass is nice but not overwhelming, although sometimes when I play BF3 and am sniping my own gunfire kinda hurts my ears. Also, I can only wear it for a couple of hours max before my head hurts, this may be due to my overly large head or that they simply need to be broken in. Only downside is that if you want to use the mic on your PC you need to purchase an adapter, which you can from amazon or Razer.

pardon me if i'm being rude. i was just trying to help but you seems to be offended.
(english is not my 1st languange)

but i don't get it, why you ask ? is the link doesnt provide the information you need ?
its the most complete guide imo.

edit :
oh ok the part that the OP doesnt reccomend headsets.
but he still recomend stuff on the spoiler though, just for reference
and in my opinion audio is like food, all is about preference
