Sorry, I just don't have the time to look, as I am researching for building my PC. So here are the requirements-

1. With microphone (I do not have space for a desktop mic)
2. Under $50 (No exceptions!)
3. Will last a long time
4. I like them big, not like those 1/2 inch thick logitech ones that break easily
5. Don't need WONDERFUL sound, just better than these Samsung earbuds I have

Thanks

$39,99 @Newegg

If the microphone is expendable you could get this 5.1 Channel Audio $54,99.@Amazon
Creative Inspire T6160 5.1 Multimedia Speaker System


I'm liking that AZIO, especially the long cord. And have you heard of the Genius Mordax HS-G600? I found only 2 reviews of it (which were very positive) and it's only $50, but I'm still unsure

Plantroncis 780 PC Gaming Headset. 7.1 Surround Sound Monster, just over the price limit, but I personally believe is the best contender in this segment of the market.
-Excellent clear speakers
-Very clear mic, I use it to do commentaries
-7.1 surround souind. OK, it works and you can tell the difference, but the audio without it is still crisp and clear.

Pros:
-To me it's very comfortable, the clamping force is not to high, but it fits nice and snug, not to tight.
-The audio is superb, ,and at this price range feels and sounds better than my friends Triton's IMO.
-Mic quality is fantastic, I plan on using it to record my commentaries. Commenting videos is important to me and I would not normally not choose a headset to do so, but this one fits the bill nicely.
-No messy cords for audio or mic, all done via one simple USB connection.
-Works well right out of the box, install 7.1 Surround Drivers via disk, or online.

Cons:
-The cord is 6ft, I don't know what is the acceptable standard, but this may or not be the right length for some. For me it more than enough since sit right next to my computer.
-Also about the cord, it is not braided, and again to some this comes is an inconvenience. I will say that the cord does become slightly twisted, but not anywhere near enough to be annoying.
-About the USB, some people don't want to connect this type of hardware via USB, and no the plug is not gold plated, for some reason people really want gold plating.


Overall, I owne this headset, love it and will be keeping it until it dies, which for me is atypical.
Audio is fantastic on both ends, crisp and clear.
Bought it at Walmart since it was the lowest price(they really vary) and arrived the next day. I hope this helps, many people will recommend stuff that they read or heard was good, but this review comes from experience.

Either way, whatever you choose, just enjoy it!!
