    I am going to be buying a new set of headphones with a mic for my PC. Does anyone have any suggestions. Preferably under 50$

    Thanks in advance.

    Plantronics DSP setups are good, have nice ear-pieces, plug into USB ports and have really good mics :)

    Plus the software is pretty kewl if you install it.

    Its plug and play. It worked automatically for me. The sound quality is really good and the noise cancelling setup works great :D

    Agree with the Plantronics.

    Good stuff. I step on mine regularly and she sounds great... mic doesn't mess around either, all parties read 5 on 5.
