Hey!
I am looking for the best PC gaming headset, that has good mic quality, and is comfortable.
I like to make live commentaries. I tried using the Blue Yeti but it picked up every keyboard sound + mouse click. So i am deciding to go back to the good ol' headsets.

I want a headset that is comfortable , good mic quality, doesn't pick up background noise, and isn't too expensive!

Some that i have looked at:

Gamecom 780's by plantronics

Logitech G35

Thanks!

I have the GameCon 780's and love them. Decent price and comfy.

I don't know, but I heard by great true sources that Tritton makes the best commentary headsets. I have a pair and their quite good. But if you want a good microphone that is arguably one of the best for only 60$ get a Blue Snowball mic.

I find those mics pick up everything, and i really don't feel like buying special equipment, or editing the background noises out.

They sound like it when you put them on, but when you hear the final product they don't pick up anything.

actually all 3 are very good choices you would have little difference regardless of which you chose. sound quality i prefer my G930 over the siberia and the plantronics but if i didnt have the g930's i would be happy with either of them 2.
if your mic is to sensetive then turn off the mic boost. often this will cause a mic to pick up everything in the room not just your voice. but disabling it and turning up the mic volume will cause your mic to pick up sound at a very limited range. increasing the mice volume will increase the amount of loud local noise it will pick up while mic boost will increase the overall mic sensitivity to the point you could almost hear a pin drop in another room.

I previously had the Blue Yeti, and it picked up everything, it also didn't have any boost on it. And thank you for replying i might either get the GameCom, or the Logitech
