Source: Plugging into a laptop...
Isolation: Don't really care. Used mainly at home...
Preferred Type of Headphone: Full-sized with microphone (Those guides don't give me ANY good microphones, except the $40 ones. I just want a good and cheap headset).
Preferred Tonal Balance: Not really sure about this. I'll stick with balanced, since I'm not spoiled in sounds
Past headphones: Used These in the past. broke after 6 months.
Preferred Music: Doesn't really matter. I just want a non-tin kind of sound. I HATE sounding like it's in a tin can.
I use the Logitech G230's and they regularly go on sale for $30. Decent headset with average sound quality for both the mic and speakers.
Depends on your budget and what quality you want out of your headset.
My recommendation of the day for a cheaper headset. (Cause sale)
I personally like the Logitech G230. I've had mine for a month (to the day) short of a year. I also wear glasses, so if that is a concern, it's still great. And it's only $42 USD.
-Leveled sound upon purchase. No "enhanced bass" bullshit
-Very Very cheap
-Non-USB (Only really concerning for sound card users)
-A little uncomfortable for people with sensitive heads
-Bit heavier than the standard headset

Might wanna check out the Logictech G230's. I have two sets myself (one for work, one for home). They're pretty solid, comfortable, the sound quality is pretty decent, and they are circumaural (over the ear instead of on the ear).
I mean, I've definitely used better, but for a sub-$50 headset, they're pretty awesome. One big downside I would say is that they're a little on the big side, and they don't pack well.
Nah, one of the sides snapped earlier last year. I replaced them with a pair of Logitech G230s. By comparison, I think they're much better - Good mic, audio clarity, bass, light-weight, and built with a more flexible design. I took the cups off of the 377 and put them over the G230s. The cups on the new set caused my sensitive skin to break out. $50 Headset. Took a week to ship. Big. Rash. All around my head.
I'm guessing you're looking for some that are just over $19.99? I didn't look too hard but this $39 one has the promo offer.
the logitech g230s.
the headphone and microphone are 2 separate jacks. has a pretty good set of drivers. has a physical mic mute toggle switch and a volume slider. honestly my favourite headset. they're over-priced in retail stores ($120NZD) but you can pick a pair from amazon for about $30USD. i've had mine since last year and so far i've had zero problems.
A little bit cheaper but I personally think they have great quality, I've used them before. The mic is okay, but you could probably get better.
After lots of looking, I just bought a Logitech G230 with the standard Mic and Headset 3.5s. Love it more than any of the more expensive USB ones I've had.
tl;dr looking for lightweight surround sound headphones for pc gaming
I currently have Logitech G230 headphones, problem is the audio quality feels lacking, in games its hard to tell which direction sound came from. Despite amazon advertising them having surround I dont believe they do have that feature.
I reside in EU, but will order from other side of the world if I have to. Help much appreciated!
