    looking for a decent set of headphones with mic under $100. Ideally:
    - mic doesn’t pick up much background noise at all
    - wireless (or at least just plugs into Xbox controller)
    - doesn’t look like shit or I’m some esports wannabe

    Looks like arctis and razer have some good options if anyone has experience. Thanks!

    I bought a hyper X cloud alpha for 100. It was my first headset but I really like it. I plug it into my xbox controller.

    I got one like this, too. Can’t remember the price. My only complaint is that I can hear my voice through the headset when I talk.

    Ended up getting the Steelcase Actris with bluetooth. Pretty cool how you can mix game audio/chat from controller with Bluetooth music/podcasts from another device

    I’d recommend this one as well. I had it about 2 years ago and loved it. If you really want a wireless headset you can spend an extra $50 for these: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/plantr...17U21sQc-pEnvbQUbxBoCOvMQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

    I currently have them and they’re great.

    It’s pretty nice. Really comfortable, well made and not terribly plastic-y. Also don’t look like you still live in mom’s basement and drive a lowered Civic

    I have my $50 turtle Beachs that I duct taped together after the headband broke.

    You mute it by flipping the microphone arm up. Whenever it’s muted it or unmuted it makes a small ding to let you know.

    Shut up and take my money.

    But seriously, that's my biggest complaint with the Xbox One S controller/headset combo. I have to mute it in the settings. Not exactly ideal mid fight.
