What is the best Gaming Headset for $100 - $150. I'm looking for a new gaming headset and I'm not sure what to get. No Razer products as I've heard they are unreliable.

Previous Headsets:


Tritton AX 720

$120

Pros: Mic was perfect

Cons: Not very high audio volume level, not very comfortable, Sound quality not very good.


Turtle Beach EARFORCE X12
$60

Pros: Good sound quality, comfortable, louder volume level, bass control.

Cons: Not a voice cancelling mic




Key Factors:

* Voice Cancelling Mic (Top Priority)

* Surround Sound

* Good sound Quality (If its the same quality as Turtle Beaches I'll be happy)

* Comfortable


I am considering buying a turtle beach product. Which one would potentially be the best I know they seem to have different variations with the same price. Also I would like to know how the TB mics perform and if they are voice cancelling.


According to this site the Turtle Beach Z6A Ear Force Z6A is the best option.

Would the MW3 ones be better?

One thing I don't like about turtle beaches is this:
Microphone Monitor
Hear your voice in the headset, so you won’t have to shout to hear what you’re saying.

Is there anyway to disable this?

Edit: I do like to consider myself an Hardcore/Elite gamer.
Would it just be best to get one of these

I've heard turtle beaches break really quickly.

That's the headset I'm going to buy because I cracked the volume control on my plantronics one so my mic keeps cutting out.

I'm quite satisfied with my PS3 headset, does what it should and is comfortable with good battery.

Som say that the mic breaks easily, but i've used mine for over a year and it's still as good as new.

Also, if you consider yourself elite/hardcore, get an Astro.

Everyone is saying the New Turtle Beach Seven Series Headset is better.

I can't talk about the Seven Series, but everyone I know who has had a turtle beach headset has had it break after about 3 months.

For a good balance between price & quality i can suggest Creative Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Wrath.
A mate bought those a while back and he's been very happy with em, oh and they're cheap.
But like Vela said, if you're a hardcore player you might want to invest more $ for a 1337 headset.
