Which headset should I get?

I'm torn between a number of different headsets. I can get Astro A30s WITH the 7.1 Mixamp or the Astro A40s WITHOUT the Mixamp. I've read a lot that Astros are hardly even worth it, without the mixamp.

I've also looked at Tritton headsets, and people rate them to be decent, not to mention Sennheiser is popular as well.

I just don't know, my budget is no more than $150. Any insight?

A40's are far superior to the A40's imo I say go for the A40's

It'd be nice to have the mixamp but I myself would still go for the A40's.

Is it also worth mentioning that I don't have a sound card? Just onboard.

Well.... Upon checking and finding out that Amazon now has sales tax for the state that I live in -- The price for A40s is too high. I'm now looking at Astro A30s or Tritton 720+.

Err, it'd be the Astro A30s without the mixamp. Again also because of the tax, with the mixamp is too much now. Amazon really sucks now.

Astro A30s without the mixamp are within my budget, the Tritton 720+ is JUST outside of it (I'm willing to go the extra few dollars since it's not very far outside my budget).

Well without the mixamp they will be very similar if I had to pick one I'd go with the 720+, but either will be a decent choice
