Looking for a detachable or hidden mic gaming headset (Some research done)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So I'm looking for a pair of headphones that are circumaural, with noise isolation (canceling is generally too expensive, but wont stop me from buying), and a detachable or retractable mic. I'll be using these headphones for gaming mostly (65% of the time) and for music and Skyping people. So far I've found the following headphones. Yes, there is a large margin in price difference, but sales are amazing.

And the Creative Soundblaster Pro

 

I know there is probably something better out there, but this is what turned up when I googled "best detachable mic headphones". Thanks for the help. If you need anymore details I'll respond as soon as possible. Oh, I do NOT want to get another mic to attach to the headphones. I tried that once and it sucked. And I want the mic to be able to be put almost entirely out of sight.

Get a pair of headphones and use an AntLion ModMic as your mic. You can detach it when you're listening to music and attach it again when you're pwning noobs.

 

Here's my Q701 with the AntLion ModMic 3.0, I chose to wrap the ModMic's cable around the Q701's cable because I can just detach them both and use the Q701's other cable for just music.

 

Oh, and the ModMics audio quality is awesome. Very crisp and clear. It cancels background noise in the 3.0 and 4.0 models.

 

 

You adhere a small black magnet to your headphones and the modmic snaps on and off of it.

That's awesome! I really like that. Now what recommendations would you have for headphones? I'm looking at $80-$110. It can be more if I could find it on sale. Like I said before, Mostly gaming, but I do listen to music and watch a fair amount of movies so I'll something that can give quality in those too.

Just found these:

From your own experience, would the issues in the description cause too much of a problem? And how's the longevity on these?

This is my suggestion based on Mud Lust Envy's gaming guide for your budget. 

 

The Creative Aurvana Live! 2: http://www.amazon.com/Creative-Aurvana-Headset-Drivers-In-Line/dp/B00FC2R7ZW

(look under the main price and see "4 used from" and click the third one down, it says nothing about the item having damage, just the packaging)
