    Best Headset or Headphone + Microphone for Gaming

    Heyo.

    I've been looking around for a decent gaming headset for quite a while now since my Razer Kraken 7.1's died on me.

    I'm looking for a headset or pair of headphones with a decent sound stage which is good for gaming but also decent at music. I will mainly be using these for gaming since my other headphones are better suited for music. The headphones/headset should allow for good directional pinpointing. For example, when an enemy is running near you in CS:GO, I should be able to gauge an estimate of where they are.

    On top of this, the headset must have a decent mic or I can get a separate mic. I obviously need to talk to people in-game but I also stream and hoping to do stuff on YouTube when I have less work so it should be adequate for this kind of use. The mic should be able to cope with quite a deep voice.

    I've looked into a few gaming headsets but none of the ones I've seen really appeal to me since they either don't have a decent mic or there's some other problem or whateva. I don't mind if the mic is part of the headset or if it's a standalone one on the desk or whatever. I'm quite interested in the mod mic.

    The budget for the headset is around £100 and if the headphones and mic are separate, I'm willing to spend up to around £120 for both.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Soz for the essay.

    I've seen mixed reviews on the V3 and I'm not that keen on the Elites but thanks.

    Any other suggestions?

    I myself like using the Logitech G930's, wireless & 7.1 surround sound audio, nice for games like CS:GO. I know some other streamers like Kitty and sodapoppin also use the headset, up to your preference though.
