Best Headset, Microphone
2019-11-02 work in progress
Sennheiser is big name in hifi audio community. Around 2001, i bought one of their headphone for some $150. It is excellent. This Sennheiser Game ONE Gaming Headset has good reviews. If you want to spend money, i'd think buy this.
buying a microphone
so, what's the different between a headset with decidated mic?
obviously, dedicated mic (not the clip-on type) has higher quality.
the tech of mic is very diverse. There are many different tech to pick up sound and transmit it into electronic signal. This is why there are so many types, each has advantages and disadvantages.
now, our purpose is average gaming or youtube.
Someone recommended to me the TONOR . Amazingly, only $15. I tend to think this would be excellent quality/price ratio. If you want just a simple mic, i think this is the one.
by the way, if you look at microphone review for professional use, such as singing or voice acting, typically they'll laugh at anything USB.

after seeing mic reviews by pros, basically, it's said any usb mic is shit.
Blue Yeti USB Microphone
This is popular, but is actually one of the worst.
Blue Snowball iCE usb microphone
The Blue Snowball Ice is extremely popular, and as such, i think it tends to be hyped by ignorant populace therefore over priced.
This is actually one of the worst.
