Default Gaming Headsets

Anybody know of a gaming headset for around $40.

It must have a microphone, and I really dont want to go over $40.

Any help will be appreciated

Logitech is acknowledged for gaming gear, not for sound quality.

The Sennheiser PC150 should match your price tag. You can get a lot better if you up the price a little bit. But that's upto you.

Keep in mind that it's hard for people to recommend you a headset because it is a very personal taste. Firstly you must find it comfortable yourself, and secondly, you must find the sound quality good yourself, too. Not everybody has the same notions over what is good sound, so you'll want to try some headsets in your local store, see how they fit, and how they sound to you. Good luck.

If you can't stretch for that then get a Sony MDR-XD400. It's the best I have used for playing games in your price range.

If the sound quality is that much different, I have no problem keeping my money and saving for that. I'd much rather pay alot of money for quality head phones then not much money for Ok headphones.
