Look up yamaha cm500 very good sound + a boom mic ( doesnt sound as good as HD202) but mic and comfort level made me choose it over hd202...ss 3h has almost no bass , havent used the creative one so no comment on that one
Good luck!!!

While the Creative Fatal1ty is not the best headset I have owned I would say it was the most durable. The only reason it broke was because the cord got caught under my computer chair the the wire snapped when I went and unplugged it and was in a hurry and it snapped.

Sound quality isn't the best but if you haven't used a 5.1 or 7.1 headset for gaming you won't notice a difference.

Another cheep good headset is the Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000

EASY

the JVC HA-RX700. Could easily be sold for ~double the price. Don't QQ over whether it has a mic or not. If that's your criteria for buying headphoans you need to go away.

The fact that he asked for a headset, not headphones means that's what he's looking for, don't come into a thread acting like that and placing your opinion that isn't needed.

OT: I have the fatal1ty headset (regular, not pro) and I love it, first real headset I've owned. May not have the best bass, but for the $20 I got em for, they sound perfect for me.

HARX 700 + clip mic. Better quality than any headset you'll find at this price.

Many people ask for headset without knowing the value of a headphone + mic solution. I'm sure he's just trying to help, you act like he's trolling. What he said is in fact, right...
