    As a general rule of thumb, never buy gaming headphone. They are waste of money. If inwere u i would spend money on getting an audiophile headphone. As soon as u hear something coming out of audiophile headpjone u will never revert back to gaming crapset.

    Nope. Asus is good brand for other things but not for peripherals. That means Keyboard, mouse and most definitely audio. Same goes for other up and coming all-in-one brands like Gigabyte, MSI.

    At that budget try to bring the HyperX Cloud Stinger. I hear it's quite good.

    Or Superlux HD 681/668 + separate mic combo is still viable.
    My probable next build: Qisan MagicForce 68 (Outemu switch) / Teamwolf Zhuque+ 87 TKL (Outemu) / Monoprice Select series full size (Outemu/Gateron) / Drevo Gramr 84 TKL (Outemu) • Logitech G102 Prodigy • Deepcool Dukase V3 / Thermaltake Versa U21 • Superlux HD 681 • Creative Sound Blaster E1 • LG 22MP68VQ • SteelSeries QcK • Generic executive chair • others TBA

    djrock please don't bother me. You are in my ignore list so I don't have to see literal poop.

    I would vote for superlux hd 681/668 or samson sr 850 and use a zalman mic or sony mic
    https://www.amazon.ca/Sony-ECMCS3-Om...ony+microphone
    https://www.amazon.ca/Zalman-Zm-Mic1...zalman+zm-mic1

    I would suggest to get the sony mic but if your budget is really stretching, get the zalman mic.

    It looks like backpack has them in bd
