    Question Headset with GOOD mic


    For Christmas this year I want to get my husband a good headset. Sound doesn't need to be fantastic, he won't be using it for music, just for some WoW sound and to hear over Vent. But the headset needs a clear, loud, and awesome mic. It also needs to be comfortable because he would wear it for hours at a time to lead raids and manage his guild. The headset does need to be a USB since we opted for awesome graphics cards over sound boards. Who cares what it sounds like if it looks crappy, right? Anyway, my price range is nothing over $70. The headset doesn't need to be perfect; a clear, pretty good mic, comfy feel, and some sound, that's all.

    Here is what I have found so far:
    Corsair HS1 USB Connector Circumaural Headset

    Plantronics GameCom777 Gaming Headset

    AudioFX Pro 5+1 Force Feedback Gaming Headset

    Any of those worth it? And if not what would you suggest.
    Thank you.

    Out of those choices I would go with Corsair.
    If it was me, I spend a little more and get these:
    PC 161 - Sennheiser USA
    I have the PC165's I do a lot of online gaming. Communicate with my friends via vent. Wear these for hours. No ear fatigue. Excellent mic.

    I've been on this search for awhile now and have been looking at the Corsair headset the most. Everything I have read suggests it's pretty good. Guess I'll be getting that one. Thanks guys.
