I have a pair of Sound Blaster Tactic 3D alphas. I knew from the moment that the wire started to chip when I first bought them that they were not going to last long. Now, they don't work at all. Now, I am looking for a good gaming headset, preferrably below 50$ but my only really hard budget is 65$. I prefer built in mics. As for surround sound, 5.1 is OK (even stereo if quality is really good). Thanks!
By the way, I am fine with a clip on mic as long as it and the headphones stay below the budget, and the mic is good and doesn't pick up things like keyboards and mouse noise.
these would be good for about $40
if you want to spend a bit more these would be good http://www.amazon.com/Turtle-Beach-Amplified-Headset-TBS-6052-01/dp/B00D6JBZBK/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1382913113&sr=8-14&keywords=gaming+headset
