    Hi, my headset broke and i want i new one, but i have no idea which ones are good, so can anyone let me know what is a good quality headset?

    Heres a few stipulations:
    I only want to spend a max of £40 on it, preferably less
    I still use my computer speakers so id rather have one that is only on 1 ear

    Quick question, if you are planning on using your computer speakers, is there much point in getting an actual headset rather than a seperate desk mic?

    Same as above really ^

    But if you really want headset then Razer Piranhas are quite cheap and are quite good

    Personally I use the Sennheiser PC350's (http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=29043&vpn=PC350&manufacture=Sennheiser Electronics) I didn't pay that particular price, they were on sale for about $80 off when I picked them up. But my friend came along as well and bought this set http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=24617&vpn=500926&manufacture=Sennheiser Electronics (also on sale) and he's been very happy with them and they're more in-line with your price range. I've never been a fan of separate mics, they tend to make you sound distant and quiet (or you lean over, or yell too loud) a nice headset with a well adjusted mic is the most convenient setup.

    desk mics are annoying aren't they? why take up space on your desk when you can stick it on your head? :) I'm not sure when it comes to single ear headsets but I'd go for logitech, they're almost guaranteed to be good quality.
