So I spend a lot of time playing video games (mainly pc) I have had the turtle beaches x12 for about a year and I think it's time for an upgrade. So what's a good headset that will be better then the x12s for 100 dollars or less. Also just some extra info I have no sound card so take that into consideration. Thanks in advance

corsair, plantronics, and steelseries all have decent budget models that get the job done. obviously all will sound better when paired with a dedicated dac but they'll still sound ok w/o one.

from high to low:

Corsair Vengeance 2000

Steelseries siberia V2

plantronics Gamecom 780

best of luck and happy gaming

Siberia V2 is arguably the best in its price range. The surround sound is solid, and the condenser mics have surprisingly good noise cancellation.

Audio cards according to this video are just a myth
First off a sound card as they say in this video is no better than on board audio
He said "The wire running up to the front of your computer is like and antenna"
This would explain the sound problems with the front panel audio connectors
He also says to plug it into the on board audio and you actually won't notice a difference

HyperX Cloud or bust. The only decent gaming headset under $100 there is. The rest is cheaply built stuff that is overpriced.
