Smile Best Gaming Headset for $100

Ok, this is highly subjective, so any and all mentions help with the final purchase.

Looking to get my wife a wireless gaming headset with the mic. Don't know the 1st thing so the 1 with the majority of +ive reviews will likely be the 1 I'll get her.

She's started playing League of Legends and I got her some decent buds, but both it and the mic. r wired.

Logitech, Skull Candy,....

The wireless Corsair headsets are pretty much the only decent wireless headphones/headsets I can think of that can be had for ~$100. Wireless and quality really don't come together when it comes to anything audio, especially at realistic price points.

Well it sounds like I may have to go maybe $150 or more so far. A cpl of my friends said so.


Someone else said they got a good 1 for $20. Can't be wireless for that unless it's kinda warm I thought...

Yeah, they're nice. Tried 1 at the store today... Looks like I might have a Corsair Vengeance 2000 for $60.

One of the guys at CC thinks they're 1 of the better ones for the mid range sets, and apparently he games a

lot.

Anyone have 1? Thoughts?

Grado SR80 and a clip on Zalman mic. SR60s are also quite decent for the price.
