In terms of the best microphone the PS Gold is NOT the headset you want.
Get a USB headset, like a Logitech G35 corded USB headset. It's perfect.
These are pretty good, i have a lot of success pinpointing sound. Plus they are reasonably priced. Mic is clear for friends on discord.
Disclosure: it's my first pair of this type of headphones so I have nothing to compare to.
Also if you just want a cheap 7.1 headset...
$60. I just now replaced my previous pair, which I had for 4 years. If you look at the reviews, people moan about the cheap plastic breaking (which is what finally happened on mine... after 4 years and a multiple drops). Basically, treat these semi decently and they will last for a long time.
I can recommend the Logitech G35 , I run with it since I don't even know anymore, probably my fav headset since 8 years. Top sound, very comfortable and very robust, in case it flys to a wall sometimes.
I use the G35. A lot of people recommend the g930, but I've had way too many issues with the wireless set (terrible battery life, impossible to order replacement parts at certain times of year as they run out of stock, spotty reception, etc.) The G35 is just the g930 without the wireless headache.
The only Thermaltake keyboard I've had personal experience with was very low quality in both build and use satisfaction, it wound up having connection issues within a year.
As long as the PSU is decent quality it'll have no issue putting out the required power, I've got a modular 750W from Corsair that's been going just fine for four years.
This is the headset I have right now, its pretty low cost and I don't have any gripes with it.
Dont get the v3s ive owned 2 pairs and a pair of each version before them and always regret it. The v3s had many issues where the left earcup would either be significantly fainter than the right earcup or did not work at all, the only ones that i found good were the v1's id reccomend a good logitech headset or a audiotechnica one if you want to spend a bit more. If you want to get a logitech headset i highly reccomend this one: [link]
Its very consistent and very good for its price. As for if you want a standalone mic i have no idea.
How cheap are you looking for? I've had great success using the Logitech G35, because it has a nice secure feel over your ears, provides high quality directional sound despite CSGOs oddities. I mean there are definitely cheaper and more expensive options out there.
1: Benefits of Audio Jack: Mostly used on "audiophile" grated headsets which are not tuned for gaming, benefits of that is that you can run an external amp or dac ( or a combo of the two)
Benefits of USB headset: Soundcard driver is directly in the headset which means that custom software (in this instance made by logitech) allows you to equalize your sound to your prefered needs. This also ensures that you get extra features like Automute when putting the the boom mic up, and macro keys. which is not possible on Mini Jack.
2) Logitech G35 headsat have noise cancelation on the microphone (there is one mic for your mouth, and one for ambient noise, which it then removes as good as it can from teamspeak and so on)
3) Most people prefer Over the ear because if the headset is not "soft enough" you can get strains on your ears with the on ears, downside to over ear closed back headsets made of pleather in this instance is that they get hot on your ears after a few hours
hope this helped
NP. And it just went on sale on Amazon today
I dunno, I just used that once.
I mean the "list price"
It was 140$ at future shop, and I got it for around 80$.
Really? - it's like 88.99 on prime currently. Thought it was a decent price.
Personally, I use the G35. It's pricey, but you get what you pay for. 7.1 sound is crisp, headset itself is sturdy, and it's got some awesome noise-cancelling.
I'm not an audiophile but I was gunning for the cheapest 7.1 Surround Sound headset awhile ago, I found the cheapest one to be Logitech's G35. [link]
It was a bit cheaper when I bought it, either way its an excellent headset, has done me well in many FPS's as well as games in general. Been using it while playing DotA 2 and its awesome. They fit really well and are adjustable, if you dont wear them properly tho they can start to weigh on your ears after a couple of hours, its pretty heavy. Hope this helps, take care.
From those links:
For the uninitiated, that last bit (ASIN=) is an amazon referral code.
You could have AT LEAST put a little bit of effort into that.
Downvoted and reported.
I might recommend Logitech's G35's then. They have been out for awhile now and I've used them extensively until recently. They are very large and over the ear, which worked well for me as most headsets crush my glasses onto my ear. Decent sound quality (but full disclosure, I am not that picky about sound) with a good mic. I prefer USB headphones so they install as a seperate audio device for talking on Ventrilo and the like.
I used these before I upgraded to a Snowball mic and noise cancelling headphones.
Logitech G35 is good, relatively cheap and lasts long.
Budget: $50 perfably under $40
Source: Gaming. Looking for something sturdier than "gaming" headphones. Want something I can here enemy's foot steps with. I'm looking for a headset that can fit over my ear and use for hours without getting uncomfortable.
Requirements for Isolation: My area isn't so loud, but the fans on my computer can be distracting. I'm not sure if this warrens a closed back.
Preferred Type: Over Ear. I have been using a smaller headset since mines broke and it's super uncomfortable for me to wear. My previous headset was the G35 and fit comfortably around my ears.
Preferred tonal balance: Honestly I don't know. I do voice chat sometimes, so whichever is better for gaming/voice chatting.
Past headphones: G35 (Which broke a year later)
Preferred Music: EDM
Other: My last two headsets were "Gaming headset" and broke in under a year. I'm looking for headset that aren't as cheep, but still fits comfortably on my head and great for games.

I like the Logitech G35.
I personally use the Logitech G35. But I know a couple of famous youtubers use the Logitech G330.
>the headset doesn't color match the rest of the parts
Hehe, too true I was thinking of the G35 but they're a bit more expensive.
Would these work?

Logitech G35 Headset new in the box
I've been using this headset (Logitech G35) for a while now.
Sturdy, clear sounding as far as I know, and surround sounds great in-game. The mute button, the volume control and the media controls are all nice and on your head, so you don't have to fumble around with your wire any time you want to mute yourself or change a song.
The only issue with the media control buttons is that they can't be rebound to more useful things.
If you're looking for something a bit cheaper, and don't mind going analog, as opposed to USB, I use these headphones (Razer Orca) for listening to music, and I've seen this clip-on mic recommended in other threads.
Used in conjunction, those two are supposedly crazy good for the money.
Wired: CDN$ 111.24

i absolutely love my Logitech G35 i've had the same pair for 4+ years, only problem is the leather on the ear cups starts rubbing off after ~1 year
Get Logitech G35
EDIT: Seems like the price on this dropped a little - $71.98
If you absolutely have to have headphones try these:
I already have Sennheiser HD 280 Pros. I love them, I was looking at this. [link]
