I've been wanting a new microphone for a while now but im not really sure what i should get.
I would prefer a headset that has a good microphone with it. I currently have a Razer Kraken Pro which is somewhat comfortable with an average microphone. It seems like Jabra and HyperX have the most options in this category but please tell me what microphones or headsets you have, how are they and would you recommend them to someone else.
If you want a headset, the go-to is the HyperX Cloud 2's. (No personal experience but the reviews speak for themselves)
I personally have Audio-Technica's M40X's with my old headset taped next to me (it's has the microphone) but I've been looking at getting the AntLion ModMic.
What's cool with the ModMic is that it attaches to your headphones. So you can kinda make your own headset. I.E you buy headphones like M50x's and the ModMic. It would cost more but it would have better quality on both what you hear and what others hear.
I'm using Plantronics Gamecom RIG 500s and I'm pretty satisfied with them. The mic quality is pretty decent (although mic-muting feature of flipping mic up seems to produce echo if volume level of headphones is too big) and I don't think anyone has any issues with hearing me. The sound is of great quality (for me at least) and it's sufficient for PC headphones. The only downside is extremely short jack cable (the jack/USB adapter is hanging in front of my chest, can provide photo if you want) so using them with phone would be problematic. The mic is also not detachable, so they are pretty much PC-only headphones. If you have extra money, 500Es have two swappable mics, but they are substantially more expensive.

At home I have an AKG K550 with a ModMic. It sounds amazing (especially because I run them through a large amplifier thats powering some large speakers) and has great comfort, but this is a pretty expensive setup.
While I'm at university I use a Sennheiser HD 598Cs with the mic that's included in the cable. Sounds amazing as well, not as good though, and the mic is (understandably) worse.
A good alternative to the (expensive) modmic is the VModa BoomPro. It only works with headphones that use a 3.5mm jack at the headphone (as it replaces the cable) but is a very good option for good quality without spending for a ModMic.
