Should I get a headset?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've always used an x-fi sound card and 5.1 speakers like the logitech X-530's. I'm playing world of warcraft and starting to get into arena's and rated battleground's, I'm thinking it's time for a headset with built in mic.
I currently have this mic sitting on my shelf, but I've barely used it: http://www.logitech.com/en-us/webcam...es/devices/221. I don't like having my game volume down in order to speak, so I'm thinking of just getting a gaming headset.

Out of these headsets, which one would be a good buy.

P.S I'm not a pro gamer and don't need the absolute best, but would like something that sounds good and has a clear mic for ventrilo.

If you already have a mic, just get a good set of headphones.

^^ this. Every headset I've bought over the years has eventually broke on me, but my Sennheiser 497 and $10 logitech mic i got from walmart have lasted 5 years now. And the sq is obviously better
