EDIT: I would also like to point out that these are going to be my first "audiophile" headphones, and not being an "audiophile" myself I probably won't notice the small faults in some products.
Hello and thank you for taking your time to read this first of all.
Well the past couple of days I've been searching for a gaming headset and like I always do I look a lot into whatever I'm buying and read that buying a good headset and just a standalone mic would be the best option. The thing is I'm still bit unsure on which headset to get.
My main uses would be 65% music and 35% gaming battlefield being the main game then minecraft, but I usually listen to music while playing minecraft. I listen to rock/metal/rap/dubstep mainly, so I am more or less looking for a good all rounder. If the headphones have a mic for 100$ then I don't mind getting that but if they don't I'd prefer they stay 80$ or less as the mic I'm getting is 16$.
If the headphones have a mic that would be awesome but I see most of them are over 100$ such as the sennheiser pc 350's. I'm usually on a skype call when playing games so if there is a mic on the headphones it has to have good quality.
I know many people recommend the zalman mic, but I don't want it picking up any background noise.
Basically what I'm looking for is
-All around headphones.
-100$ if they have a mic.
-80$ if they don't have a mic.
