    Looking for a gaming and PC use headset with mic, not expensive - £70 ish?
    Used for weekly LAN nights and gaming at home.
    I never did get round to replacing my headphones after asking last time...the kids seem to spend all my money!
    I have a kit fund and some Amazon credit, so let me know what's good.
    Never had a USB headset before, happy to be recommended that or old school audio jacks as my on board sound is pretty good in my current rig.

    SteelSeries Arctis 3? Versions of it can be had for ~£70 iirc
    HyperX Cloud II is the other oft-recommended option.

    Thanks RF, I'll check those out. I think one of the guys as LAN night has the Cloud IIs, I'll ask tonight when I'm there :grin:
    I forgot to say I'd rather pay for performance not 'Gamerzzz' looks and features!! I am now officially a grumpy old git!

    Had a quick look not sure the Steelseries Arctis 3 appealed -'Boreal' version sounds intriguing :hehe:
    Then confusion! There is Hyperx Cloud Alpha for a few more £ (no USB) and the Cloud Pro for a couple of £ less... Such confuse :rollingeyes:
