Best sub $100 Headphones + Mic combo for gaming

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So I was originally planning on getting a gaming headset but I read much about how headsets suck and that headphones + separate mic combos were better. Can someone recommend me good headphones and a mic that add up to $100 or less? I will be using on board audio btw. My motherboard has the Realtek ALC892. It will be for gaming and listening to music.

Heya,

 

Samson SR850

Superlux HD668B

 

Antlion ModMic

 

(And get yourself a Xonar DG or DGX soundcard for $30~40)

 

Very best,

I just posted almost exactly the same question! What MalVeauX said is basically the same thing that I've been told by others. The Samson's are semi-open back though, and I could really use some closed back headphones. Also that sound card is a starter to get your feet wet on a budget. It seems like most everyone agrees that you should save up for an X-fi Titanium for gaming.
