Gaming Headset

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I want a CHEAP gaming headset but have no idea what to get. I'm not very picky, just want to hear what I'm playing and have people hear me when I speak (Ventrilo, Steam, video chat)

I was thinking of this :

Personally I trust Rosewill, others may not, I've never had an issue with them, and it's $4.99, what's the risk?

I'd just grab whichever one has free shipping. 4.99 they are just throw away headsets.

Wow, you weren't kidding when you said cheap. If you're only choices are those two, I'd go with the Rosewill.

If you don't mind spending a bit more I'd go with these. Bought 'em for 30 when I needed a headset for Vent. They never did me wrong, sound good, mic is good, in-line mute and volume controls are nice.

Only reason I don't use them now is because I have the Logitech G35's, which I LOVE, but they're way out of your price range.
