What do you recommend for a good headset with microphone built in?

Howard is on the hunt for a quality headset for around the $200 mark

Question by Howard from United Kingdom (Great Britain) | Answered by Tyler Bernath in Audio, Sound & Speakers from Jan 7, 2020 @ 22:36 CST

I am looking for a cheap headset with microphone built-in. Comfort and price are my two biggest concerns and would preferably like to purchase one for below $200.

Any recommendations?

Hi Howard,

No problem! $200 is a pretty solid budget for a headset, but It would be preferable if I knew which platforms you use in your setup. For PC users, the Sennheiser GSP 370 is a fantastic wire-free solution, as is the Corsair Virtuoso lineup.


If you need PC and Xbox, I would look at the Arctis 9x from SteelSeries as its one of the best cross platform models available and if you want a wireless solution that has Bluetooth for mobile and PS4 for a touch more than your $200 budget, Arctis Pro.

Of course, I have tested all of the model mentioned above, so you can look up our full thoughts if you would like, but I can attest to their comfort.
