Cheap gaming headset

Hello everyone, I've been looking for a decent cheap gaming headset to use for my ps3. I have noticed that all gaming headsets for the ps3 seem to be a bit costly so I found a few adapters for a total of $5 that will allow any 2 3.5mm wire (mic and sound) headset to work on the ps3. I was wondering if anyone had some recommendations as to a decent cheap headset for less than $30(the cheaper the better), the ones I am looking at right now are:
1. Yapster Tm-YB100A - $16

2. Creative Fatal1ty (I hear these are uncomfortable) - $20

3. Syba CL-AUD63019 Red - $11

Please don't suggest any headsets above $30 or ps3 specific headsets because I would like to be able to use the headsets on my computer as well. The ideal headset is decent quality, with a warranty, mic (kind of a given), and $10-25, Thanks.

    the fatality is a $70 heaset so at 20 bux is a bit of a bargain... as for being uncomfortable it depends on your head size and shape. even then it will be a few hours b4 you notice if there jipping your ears.
    the other stuff is just garbage that will fall to bits within a few weeks. if you buy that cheap you will buy twice but with the fatality headset you will get a well made product with a backed up warranty. so yeah from them choices the fatality is the best and by some margin.
  2. Thanks for the reply, and do you also know if mic is of good quality? As for the warranty the Yapster comes with a 1 year warranty as well, which was part of my reasoning to consider it. and again thanks for the help, I had no idea that the Creative Fatal1ty was that great.

    Never mind I did some more research and found that it is great in music and the mic is great, I am going to pick these up from Fry's and recommend it to my friend. Thank you very much, noted as best answer :)
