I would like a headset with 2 speakers and mic for a good gaming experience. Right now, I have a 15 dollar Labtec and I was wondering what I should get. I don't really want to spend more than 30-35 bucks if I don't have too. I don't have a problem with the headset I got, but the mic doesn't work on it. I have a P4 1.8GHZ, Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card. The mic I have now picks up the background noises through like music and gaming, but it will not pick up my own voice when I talk into like say Ventrilo or Teamspeak. If anyone can help me, please let me know. Later all!

This should be in tech support but Ill answer it. Just buy yourself any headset that gives you a crisp and clear sound. Also make sure to get one that can bend so you can mend the mic so it doesnt pick up background noises...
I have a headset where I can move my mic around, but the mic part just cut out in like a couple weeks. I'm asking what's a good company that's reliable that I should go with?
The sound you are hearing is not static from the background, but most likely static from the plug with the volume really high. You should check all your audio settings in START--->SETTINGS--->CONTROL PANEL--->(whatever audio icon is displayed)
If this doesnt work you might wanna check your soundcard drivers. EDIT: http://www.turtlebeach.com/site/kb_ftp/585ftp.asp this is the link to your soundcard drivers, just choose the correct installer according to your windows..
I already installed the new drivers and checked everything and it's fine. I just don't know what to do, when I record like sound and I talk nothing records, but when I have music playing in the background it picks up that noise, but it just doesn't pick up my voice on my mic. Really kinda wierd, if anyone know's anythign let me know.
Plantronics is a excellent brand for headsets. A friend has one and it rocks. It is gonna be my next purchase to replace my $5 headset.
reflect, how can your mic filter out your voice and not other sounds? Tested it on another machine?
No, I have not tried it on another machine, but I think the mic is basically gone. I plugged in my own mic and it worked fine, so that has to be the problem.
