Once again your flair seems to be lacking of the tidehunter. You are truly a monster I don't even know you anymore. As for headphones I'm not a fan of the mic + headphone set up because I don't like clutter on my desk. I picked these up last year and they've been really solid [link]
Based on the first twenty seconds of that vid, I don't think you'll have a hard time getting what you want - it's really pretty average. You can hear a fair bit of background noise (although it may be intended for atmosphere) and their voices are a bit overblown.
I've heard decent things about the SteelSeries Siberia, and I believe the company is pretty standard among pro gaming.
I don't know if you'll be able to avoid picking up a barking dog or not, but you could give it a shot. This may be one of those things where you have to try a few to find what you need.
well.. I use a steelseries siberia v2 that is 50 bucks right now and it honestly feels and works great as a headset, but it does have a good mic so idk. I have never had an issue with it and I would honestly rate it 10/10 as a headset, and 8/10 as a mic. It has a retractable mic and mute feature so if you never wanted to use it you could always have it just in case.
Over speakers en zo weet ik eigenlijk niks, behalve dat je goedkoper goede geluidskwaliteit kan krijgen met een koptelefoon dan met speakers.
Als je bedoelt ingebouwde surround sound voor koptelefoons met meerdere drivers erin (zoals de Steelseries Siberia V2), doe het niet. Omdat ze zoveel kleine speakertjes erin proppen neemt de geluidskwaliteit enorm af. Met software kun je ook een soort surround sound-effect krijgen, maar dat zorgt ook voor een afname in geluidskwaliteit.
Zelf vindt ik dat surround-sound in koptelefoons (van deze prijsniveau tenminste) echt niet nodig is. Ik heb onder andere heel veel Titanfall gespeeld met mijn ATH-M30s aan en kon goed horen of iets aan mijn rechter- of linkerkant gebeurde bijvoorbeeld. Ook kun je met een koptelefoon beter muziek luisteren dan met een headset (wegens de eerdergenoemde geluidskwaliteitafname, heel veel headsets hebben ingebouwde surround sound met kleine drivers).
Maar zoals ik al eerder zei, ik ben lang geen expert. Mijn koptelefoon en microfoon combo was een goede oplossing voor mijn probleem (40% gamen op PC, 60% muziek luisteren), dus Google is jouw beste vriend hier: je bent lang niet de eerste met zo'n probleem.

^ Boyfriend has owned his pair for ~4 years and they're still going strong. He's always sounded fine in streams and voice chat programs I thought.
I bought a set just a few weeks ago since I liked his so much to go with my new desktop. No complaints from people on Skype/ Mumble/ Curse/ etc. on how I sound and I think they are pretty snazzy for the pricepoint.
.... it also helps it looks amazing with my white case.
Honestly I can't recommend to you any good USB headsets, but if you're willing to overlook that part then I recommend the Siberia V2 by Steelseries.
I have the CSGO version which sells on the valve shop for $100 but on amazon you can get a plain black pair for $50. I've had the headset for 4-5 years and they still work perfectly and I can wear them for 16 hours straight lmao (and I do actually do that, sadly).
Another plus is that it has a built in mic which can retract into the headset if you want it gone, it's also bendy so you can move it closer or farther from your mouth so you don't sound like one of those fucking people breathing into their mics and shit. Sound is good, bla bla bla. Anyways, just take a looksie here.
The Siberia Ice Mats v2 are a really good start. They've been around for a long time and are reasonably priced. I've never used the v3's but have heard negative things about them, so I'd stick with the v2's.
I've been using a SteelSeries Siberia (there's a newer version than this one but this is what I use) for a couple years now. Never had any of my friends complain about the sound quality. It took a bit of breaking in but was never painful and is very comfortable now. I also personally need the ear parts to completely cover my ears or they'll push my earrings into the side of my head and these filled that requirement. After a couple years of owning them and using them constantly the only wear and tear I see on them is some small bits of the leather ear parts coming off.
