Hello Everybody,

I am looking for a $50 gaming headset. Most people recommend a pair of headphones and a clip on mic. I would prefer built-in, unless the price isn't right. Looks DO matter. I like the looks of the Platronics GameCom 367(similar to Astro A40's), but the only place I can find a good deal for them is which only sells them a "refurbished". I am worried that I'm going to get a piece of crap if there "refurbished". Also, a lot of people recommend the Creative Fatal1ty, but I'm still not 100% sold on the look of them. Any suggestions?

GameCom 367:

The Plantronics is ok mine is still working after 10-ish months (the amount i rage at headsets thats good for me)

Its comfortable for long periods
Mic is pretty good quality
Despite being plastic its reasonably solid

Sound quality can be a bit off with the bassier notes
Looks a bit OTT (opinion there though)
Despite the mic being bendy it can be annoying to get it just right (again opinion)

Refurbished would worry me a little unless its clearly explained what/why etc

There is a newer model that replaces the 367
