    I have been shopping around for a new headset (I play all kinds of games from CSGO to just cause to the Total war franchise) and had decided on the Kingston cloud headset when I started reading and hearing that headsets are overpriced and to get a headphone and microphone combo.
    This drove me into another rut where all I did was research headphones and mics.
    DECISION: I have decided on a Sony ECMCS3 Microphone as it seems to be the best value for money but I keep going back and forth on the headphones I have narrowed it down to :
    *Audio Technica ath-m50x- which has great reviews but 1 in 10 say they are highly disappointing
    * TAKSTAR HI 2050- which are alot cheaper and apparently have better soundstage
    *Beyerdynamic DT770 PRO- which again has positive reviews but the fact that it is 80ohms means that I may need a amp
    I realise that there are many more but I need help from what I have heard open headphones are better generally but I am not sure if the sound will be picked up on the mic.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    P.s I am upgrading from the creative fatality headset and will be using the headphone for all sorts movies, youtube, music and gaming so I would like the whole package if at all possible

    If you wanted the ultimate, and for a reasonable price, the v-moda M100 plus XL pads plus BoomPro mic is it. That's what I use.
