    good headset+mic?

    My creative fatality died and fixing them proved to be an issue so im looking to replace them.

    Budget is preferably <£20 but will go to £25 if its worth it, must have built in mic and be ok xD. Look good too , creative headset was £25 on play but cant rmemeber model.

    Re: good headset+mic?

    I use a Zalman clip-on mic (a ZM-1 ?) which I got for ~£5. Works just fine...I'd add that to a comfy pair of phones.
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Re: good headset+mic?

    Not really looking for getting a seperate mic simply because its extra hassle and would probably get in the way. My fatalty headset had a detachable mic which was a nice addition albeit not required.

    My mate has a plantronics headset which is one of the £60 value ones and its decent so may try these ones out.
