hm, i thought i found a real bargin at target.com for 15 bucks but i dont like it, i guess i got wat i paid for. It was a logitech headset and i thought it might be USB cause... it said so on the website.. but it wasnt and the pictures were deciving, the thing barley covers my ears and causes pain after an hour lol..

My IT Teacher suggested radio shack for cheap good ones.

I'd recommend just looking around for good deals yourself lol

Hmm well if you can save up a little more:

Razer Barracuda: Newegg.com - Razer Barracuda HP-1 Gaming Headphones - Full Retail Multi Language

Or you can cut your price down and get this:

Newegg.com - eDimensional AudioFX Pro 5+1 USB Connector Circumaural Force Feedback Gaming Headset

Or you can go even cheaper and get these which is what I have...They have surprisingly good bass for headphones and when I use the mic my friend's say it's crystal clear at their end:

Newegg.com - Cyber Acoustics AC851B USB Connector Circumaural Stereo Headset & Boom Mic
