Default Replacement mic/earphone setup

It seems some wires have crossed somewhere in my current turtle beach and the mic out thinks it's one of the audio in channels. (mic only carries The sound is still fine and much better then my only reference (steele series 5hv2). Can anyone recommend a good full headset replacement or good an independent microphone?

To add: I'm also running an auzentech forte and would prefer to take advantage of it beyond stereo play back.

Looks like it's working, not perfectly but it is a lot cheaper then getting a new headset altogether.

Thank you Sushi Warrior and 5ILVgeARX.
