    So, I am in need of some good headphones but I can't buy them if they're too expensive due to not having enough money :p .
    Do you have any suggestions of good and cheap headphones? They need to have a mic and good sound quality cause I wasted enough money on ones that broke after like a week. Also if it's a headphone brand you use, only if you can, post me a picture of it :)

    Thanks in advance,
    Malcolm

    Personally, I use a Corsair Vengeance 2100 (the older version of this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CA-...ming-Headset/dp/B00NHJQ8CA/ref=dp_ob_title_ce )
    They're about £80, and have good sound quality (both in and out), good noise cancelling and wireless (with a USB dongle).

    The one I used before this was a Plantronics Audio 628, which was attached via USB. It's a lighter headset, the mic quality is good and sound quality is alright (although it's not noise-cancelling), and it's fairly durable (lasted for several years). It costs about £20 and can be found at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Plantronics...d=1439323626&sr=1-1&keywords=Plantronics+.628

    If your current headset broke after a week or so though, it's probably still in warranty - take it back to the shop (or if you bought it online, check the returns policy) and see if they can provide you with a replacement (or even money). It could have just been a one-off.

    I use the Sades sa-708. They are only £15 to £20 and they are awesome. Comes with a hidden mic and I use it a lot.

    Have a look at the Turtle Beach PX 22, I've used it for a while now, and people have told me that the quality of the mic is better than most professional mic set-ups.

    Cheap and good mic is the Blue Yeti. It costs about 120€ and it has multiple settings to configure. It is almost as good as a studio microphone.

    I use the Plantronics gamecon 980/988. Mic is decent and surround sound for 80$ is great.

    I dont know if they're too expensive, but me and many other people recommend audio technica ath-m50x (with modmic if you want a microphone). They are the best bang for the buck headphones out there. I personally have audio technica ath-m50 (without an x), and they sound REALLY good.
