    Default Best headset for under 100?

    I just recently got my G930s in the mail and they've been constantly disconnected every couple of minutes which is incredibly annoying and frustrating. I've read that it has something to do with other USB ports and landline phones intervening with the connection or something along those lines. Anyways, I'm looking for a good, wired headset that's the best bang for my buck. My highest priority is getting good microphone quality as I'm planning on this headset being what I use for live streaming and recording videos so having my voice come through as clear as possible would be ideal. I need this headset to be listed on either Ebay or Newegg, or basically anything that isn't Amazon considering I'm paying through Paypal.

    Hey.

    I believe the best headset for that price range (or even higher due to the quality of this headset) would be the Corsair Vengeance. You can get either the wired or wireless version. It should be on Newegg as well, NCIX also have a US site.

    The mic quality is really nice but it's a shame it's so quiet. I'll have to compare it with a few others to decide.

    If you still have your G930s, you could use that for audio and pick up a stand alone microphone. That is the best choice for great audio quality. This is the microphone I use:

    You can find it for cheaper if you look around.

    I already have a blue snowball but my desk is tiny so I'm in very limited space and the snowball, albeit being small, takes up too much space.

    I have a $70 Turtle Beach headset that has great mic quality. People have complemented the clarity several times. However, just thinking about how much it weighs hurts my head. I still have it hooked around my desk for the mic but wear a cheap Skull Candy.

    I'll check the model.

    got rid of my G930 aswel, for the same reason as you, a year back at a LAN party, someone behind me had the same headset, and it was constantly interfered, and the fact that i kept *****ing everytime i started my computer didn't help either.

    decided to go back to wired headsets and got me a razer kraken 7.1

    Yep, that's the one I was looking at too, mic quality doesn't sound too bad.
